No Hot Water!!

The rule of life is that when something inconvenient happens it will likely happen when it affects you most. Such is the case with our Hot Water Heater that's no longer heating water. It started Wednesday night (of course, things usually wait until night time to not function, right?). So, it was cool showers Thursday and this morning, and then going out into the frigid 12 degrees Fahrenheit (Tom to work and me with the dogs, as I'm working at home).
 So, we hired Ron the Plumber (a local plumber that has a state license, and is licensed to work with gas heated water tanks) to install a new one for us. Because he's installing on Friday, Rob got to work from home again (which is great). However, all of the water in the house was turned off during the day (so big bowls were filled with water for the dogs and COFFEE in advance).
 - It will be nice to have a HOT shower again... considering it's nasty to take a cool shower when it's so darn cold outside!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
