A Mr. Monk-like Cleaning Adventure!

Mr. Monk's compulsive cleaning
Anyone who knows us well knows that we love the TV detective show "Mr. Monk" about the OCD detective who as a germophobe, and had many other fears. He also had to make things even, had amazing attention to detail, and was cleaner than clean. Tom loves a clean house - one of the things I (Rob) really admire about him and respect him for. I'm a mediocre house cleaner, although I like things clean. But I don't see crumbs or tiny pieces of dirt or smudges like Tom does. He has microscopic vision to rival Superman's!   So, jokingly I call him "Mr. Monk."
  Last night we were eating dinner and when I opened the sliding glass doors to let the dogs into the backyard, he noticed there was some dirt in the track of the door. It bothered him... a LOT. So much, that he was getting irritated by it- so I wound up getting Windex, paper towels and Q-tips, so I could clean out the track. Q-Tips worked best because the tracks were so narrow (about the width of a Q-tip). SO, that was our Mr. Monk-like cleaning adventure last night!! :)
  NOW... it's clean!!

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.
