Around Smithsburg and Robinwood

Happy birthday

Bob's birthday was finalized this week with a wonderful trip to Virginia Beach.  We enjoyed a delicious meal at Captain George's and the tranquility of the ocean waves as we walked along the beach.  I am not sure which one of our feline companions enjoyed the trip the most -- Ginger May, Sabrina Maria or Samantha Mingtoi -- but they are glad to be home and awaiting a ride on Bob's new bike, or maybe a ride in his new wheelbarrow. 

This week was been filled with excitement, yet saddened by the loss of Bob's half brother, Pete Kinsey.
