Happy Birthday to Rob's Mom

My (Rob's) wacky mom is celebrating her birthday today! 
We sent her some goodies in the mail (she's hundreds of miles away). She said that she didn't want us to visit right now, so she's celebrating with my brothers.
  Mom is a great cook, and always had something tasty for dinner since I was a kid. She's Italian, so she makes the best spaghetti sauce ever. I miss that, and mine doesn't come close. She used to sew and made some clothes for my brothers and me, and is very artistic. She painted Batman and Winnie the Pooh stuff for us when we were kids. She loves to garden, and still goes out (she's in her 80s) and trims shrubs and bushes, shovels snow, etc. She's fiesty. She loves walking and bowling and recently started playing cards with a social group - and that's a great thing!

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.
