I (Rob) started organizing a "meet the neighbors" dinner in Nov. as a way to celebrate Tom's birthday and decided to continue it into a new tradition. It's a great way of getting people to know each other that have lived in the same neighborhood for decades! We met most of them walking the dogs, and it's so much fun.

  Tonight we celebrated Elvina's 80th birthday (a couple of weeks early to make it a surprise) and had great help from our friends/neighbors.   - I made the short video above, while Elvina was being serenaded by the Mexican restaurant waiters, wearing the Mexican birthday hat.  What a great, memorable time! 

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.
