A Triple Birthday Potluck Dinner!

Hil and Tom - birthday boys
On Nov. 30th, our friend Hil celebrated his (89th) birthday, and on the 29th, he hosted a small pot luck dinner gathering to celebrate his birthday and that of his friend Fay and Tom's birthdays (all within the same week). Our friend Scott was visiting over the weekend, so he came with us.

Kirsten and Rex did a lot of the cooking and organizing with Hil. 

It was a feast full of great food. I (Rob) made a rice/chicken/veggies casserole and no one fell ill from it, so we were good! LOL.

 There were egg rolls filled with sweet potato, delicious fried chicken in a Cheerios coating, rolls, salad, homemade apple and pumpkin pies, and so much more. It was hard to keep track of it all. 

  Of course, Hil's dogs Amy and Bamba enjoyed all the company and petting, too. It's always a nice way to celebrate an event having everyone bring something!

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.
