Elvina Means Fun!

Rob and Elvina
There are certain people in your life who just make life special. One is our friend Elvina who lives around the corner from us. She's retired, but she's always up to something!  She takes care of another neighbor who is confined to a wheelchair and can only move her arm. When her neighbor's husband goes to work Elvina goes over to visit, help out and help care for their dog. That's pretty special.
Max, Dolly, Franklin and Tyler love Aunt Elvina!
  We love to go to dinner with Elvina. She's got great stories has a great sense of humor and loves dogs (and we walk our kids by from time to time for some "tweaking.")  Elvina's also a huge tennis fan and tells us what's happening in the world of tennis around the world. Of course, she loves a lot of British TV shows, so she and Tom talk about a lot of those.   
  Getting together is always a fun thing and a simple pleasure we always enjoy. THAT'S what life is about. 
  Of course, Tom and Elvina will tell you that there's nothing like a good Margarita and Pina Colada to discuss Downton Abbey or Poldark!

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.
