Visit from Maureen and Ruthie : Part 1

Baltimore Ghost Walk
Life is filled with adventures, and it seems that our visitors always have adventures when they come down and visit us lately. In June, our friend Mary Ann visited us for a weekend and we were hit with the powerful Derecho and 100F temperatures where we were left without power and air conditioning.

 - On Friday, Oct. 26th, our friends Maureen and Ruthie flew down to spend the weekend with us, and guess who arrived in Maryland on Sunday the 28th that cut  their visit short? HURRICANE SANDY.   Fortunately, they were able to leave Sunday morning before all of the airports shut down from Baltimore to Washington.
 - We had fun during the short time, though. Friday the 26th we went on the Baltimore Federal Hill Ghost walk.
- Saturday we visited historic Ellicott City, Md., a civil war town filled with antique shops and ghosts!
- Saturday night we went to Barb Mallon's double medium event and enjoyed our time there. Here are some pictures.

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.
