So. Florida Trip #1 - An Old Friend

Tom, Rob, Chris, Jeff
This past weekend, we took a 4 day trip to Fort Lauderdale as I (Rob) was working at the South Florida Pet Expo to promote my books and give a talk, and Tom was going to the beach to celebrate his birthday (early) this month.  There were a couple of highlights (one being meeting an old friend), but for the most part, the weekend wasn't a banner weekend due to rain, not good lodging, bad traffic and insane drivers and lost luggage.

BIG HIGHLIGHT -  A true highlight was seeing our friend Jeff J. We haven't seen Jeff in years because he lives in south Florida, so this was a treat. His friend Chris came along the night we went to dinner at a place called "Rosie's" - which used to be part of the Washington DC based "Hamburger Mary's" chain, now renamed. 
   PET EXPO - Jeff came to the first day of the pet expo and saw me there, which really helped break up the long day.

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.
