Fun Puerto Rican Style

Our neighbor and friend Yolie had us over for a Puerto Rican dinner and dessert. Everything was incredibly tasty, and Tom enjoyed his margarita. :) Our other friends and neighbors DeeDee and Bill were there, and Yolie's boyfriend, Rocco. After dinner and dessert we all played cards!  It was a first for Yolie, Tom and Rocco. None of them had ever played cards, so DeeDee taught Rocco, I helped Yolie and Bill helped Tom. What's interesting is that Bill and Tom won the majority of the hands, so I guess Bill is the best poker player and he taught Tom well! 
Tom's got another winning hand as Bill watches (right)

Rocco and DeeDee listen to Yolie's bad hand... she went out after!

Rocco, DeeDee and Yolie study their losing hands.
  

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.
