Happy birthday Tom!

Tom and Franklin
Happy birthday to the love of my life! We met (on line) this month in 2005, eleven years ago, met in person Dec. 10, 2005, and we've been together ever since. We got married in 2009 and celebrated our 7th anniversary this year. We laugh every day, sing together, do dog rescue, are in a paranormal group together, enjoy eating out or eating at home, walking the dogs and finding simple pleasures.  
  Tom's very detail oriented, is meticulously clean, doesn't like clutter, enjoys simple and plain food (like me), a good margarita, chicken or turkey or pasta, he's an amateur historian on all things from England's Tudor period (and can tell you anything about it) and makes all of the landscaping around the house look great. Being the architect, he designed the 3-window dormer on our house, and the sun porch we built

together. He's come up with designs for interior renovations, carpet, flooring, paint colors (which is good because I'm colorblind) and so much more. Everything that has been done to the house is because of Tom and I'm so thankful for that and every day. 

  Tom is also famous for his quote of the week - usually a quote that highlights someone who does something stupid or that we find funny.

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.

About us

We're two married guys who enjoy the simple things in life, especially our dogs. We volunteer for dog rescues, enjoy splitting dinners, exercising, blogging, helping friends and neighbors, ghost investigations, coffee and tea, Tudor history, weather, superheroes, comic books, mystery novels, traveling, 70s and 80s music, classic country, piano, gardening, writing books on ghosts and spirits, architecture, keeping a clean house, cooking simply, and keeping in shape. You'll find tidbits of all of these things on this blog and more.
