Fun Lunch and Fort McHenry

Here's another event we've been planning for some time. We met our friends Steve and Jane, Lyle and Jennie for a great lunch in Federal Hill, Baltimore. We then walked around Fort McHenry and enjoyed the new visitor's center there. A must visit place where the Star Spangled Banner was written (well, it was written by Francis Scott Key in the Baltimore Harbor after seeing the American Flag raised at the fort after all the British and American shelling ended).
Jennie and Lyle -Such a handsome couple!

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.
