This week's Funny Things We've Said to Each Other

Go find "3:20" on the Beltway!
Every day we make each other laugh -and that's the formula for a great relationship.
Over the last couple of days, there were some things that just made us both burst out laughing so we thought we'd share them with you.
IT'S AT 3:20 - 
   Tom and I were driving over the weekend and he was talking about where something was located off the Washington, D.C. Beltway (the interstate the circles the District of Columbia for outsiders). If you look at the beltway, "noon" is Silver Spring, Maryland, "3 pm" is Annapolis, "6pm" is Arlington, Virginia and 9 pm is Dulles Airport, Virginia. So, Tom said that it was a "3:20 pm on the Beltway. 
  I looked at him and laughed. I said "You mean 4pm on the Beltway." He said, "No, I mean 3:20 pm on the Beltway." I repeated "4 p.m." and then he got it. We laughed a long time after that!

ANNIVERSARY CARD LAUGH - I was going through a box of old cards that we received (and
gave to each other, and it was filled with several years' worth of cards. Because our 5th Wedding Anniversary is coming up on June 26th, I pulled out the card I gave Tom last year and a bunch of the other anniversary cards I gave him from the previous years.
  I said to him that I couldn't find a card he gave to me from the last several years and he responded "I don't know, what did you do with IT?"  (Meaning ONE).  I shot him a look and we laughed out loud.  - Eventually, I did find one. :)

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.
