Fun in Lynchburg, VA

During our week off, we drove down to Lynchburg, VA to meet our friends Tom G., Robert and Ed. We stayed at a great hotel that was once a shoe factory. We enjoyed a great dinner, breakfast and lunch, and paid respects to our other friend Ed who passed in 1996 (my Tom's late partner). We learned the Lynchburg closes up shops during Christmas week and about 80% of the stores are closed during that entire week!  It was a fun time and great to see Tom, Robert and Ed. Here are some photos- and some thanks to Robert L.

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.
