Rob's Birthday: the Event in Massachusetts

Ed, Rob, Jim
During the week of Oct. 6th, I (Rob) flew to Massachusetts to visit family and partake in a double medium event with my friend Ruthie, who is an amazing medium. The event was amazing, and I'll post pictures of that later. 
 -  My younger brother Doug and sister-in-law Sue, and my nephews Brian and Scotty put together a surprise breakfast open house for me on the Sunday I was there. I was really surprised and several friends drove from over an hour away to be there for me. It was humbling, and I was so thankful to everyone. Here are some pictures from that event.

Yup- it's true: 50
BTW- Today, Oct. 17th is actually my birthday - yup, number 5-0... although I still feel like I'm in my 30s. In fact, working out, eating smaller portions (and not being ashamed to take home a doggy bag), lots of coffee, exercising several times a week and walking the dogs three times a day help keep me at the same weight I've been for decades. - I'm taking half a day off, too!

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.
