Happy Birthday to Us!

It’s hard to believe that 34 years ago tomorrow,the doors of Animal Exchange first opened. We were in the Ritchie Center then, way in the back where we could not be seen. Three years later we doubled in size and stayed there for 22 years. We moved to Rockville City Centre and downsized when my mother was 98 and I needed at least one day a week to focus on her. ¬†We went from 7 days a week to 6 ( closed on Tuesday ). Mother had been our bookkeeper, learned the computer and operated it but she had quit at age 95 when we had to replace the IBM XT. She refused to learn a Dell. My mom made it to 100 just as wonderful as she always had been and Animal Exchange is a continuing tribute to her willingness to work and have faith in me. Her picture is still here as is her footprint.
