Neighborly Dinnertime!

Back in November for Tom's birthday I (Rob) got a bunch of our friends together who are also our neighbors, and we had dinner at a local restaurant. It was so much fun to get everyone together, and introduce them to each other (we met everyone walking the dogs, and they hadn't met each other before), that I decided to do it again!  So, on Saturday, Jan. 12, we all met at a restaurant and had a great time. Will and Cristina, Jim, Yolie and Shelley and Elvina joined us for a fun couple of hours there. Several of the other neighbors couldn't make it, so we'll do it again. I think that we're really fortunate to live in a great area where we've been able to make good friends. It doesn't take much to plan, either. Just find a restaurant close by and invite some of your own neighbors who may not know each other. Here's a picture from our fun evening.

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.
