Tom's Sister Visits- Cafe Hon

Tom's sister and her boyfriend and daughter visited us last weekend and we took them to Baltimore's unique cafe, "Cafe Hon." A Hon is a local Baltimore woman with large hair, piled atop her head, a head band, brightly colored clothing (1960ish), gaudy sunglasses, high heels, etc. and the baltimore "Hon" accent. The Cafe is in the Hampden area of Baltimore which is filled with interesting little shops.
    The Cafe Hon has goofy memorabilia all over it- including an Elvis statue. Worth the trip!

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.
