Some Holiday Pics and Notes/Today's Wintry Mix Pics

Today is the day after Christmas and Tom is working while I (Rob) have the day off to catch up on things and work on re-publishing my first book (I'm going with a different publisher).  This morning brought a wintry mix and I  went out in it 4 times by 9am with the dogs, so we all got a good taste of it.
  Meanwhile, it's a good day to reflect on Christmastime fun.
We are so thankful for great friends and family who know how to make the holidays special. Hope you and your family and friends made yours just as wonderful. Here are some pictures from our Christmastime.

CHRISTMAS EVE  FUN

  We had a nice Christmas eve dinner with our friends Susan, Cary and Ed, followed by dessert and a funny movie called "The Ref" @ Susan and Cary's house. Great way to spend Christmas eve.


 TOO MUCH HOLIDAY CHEER?  Driving home, a car coming toward us veered in front of us (going the wrong way) and onto the sidewalk. Fortunately, we were a good 200 feet from the driver, who was obviously intoxicated ... and the car stopped on the sidewalk.

A NIGHT RELAXING WITH 2 GREAT TV SHOWS - After going to the movies and returning home for dinner, we settled in and watched Christmas episodes of Murder She Wrote "A Christmas Secret": A secret darkens Christmas for a Gulf War veteran (Sean O'Bryan) returning to his fiancĂ©e (Eileen Seeley) in Cabot Cove.  AND enjoyed Early Edition simply called "Christmas" - where Gary gets a newspaper that warns of a skating rink bomb that will kill many, while Chuck plots to break out of jail with Santa.

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.
