New Fence Installed!

Old fence removed and new posts installed
The Derecho severe weather event of June 29, 2012 with sustained winds near 80 mph really weakened our 14 year old fence (despite us replacing sections of it each year over the last seven years), so we gave in and decided to replace it with one we would no longer have to keep repairing. So, we opted for the more pricey vinyl fence. Despite the financial pain, it was well worth it. We have a sturdy fence, more privacy (it's a little higher with no see through slats), and the neighbors even really like it, too.
Here are some pictures of the fence being installed and finalized!

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.
