cast of characters

Lani and Ann are the Weaver sisters!

Lani's household consists of Steve, the long-suffering coding genius and computer security guru; Jim, Lani's tall, red-headed and handsome son, currently finishing his second year of college; Hunter, Jasmine, Himari, Chenault, the miraculous Onyx and the even more miraculous Resk, undisputed feline rulers of the house; and Jesse, the man-hating green-cheeked conure.

Ann's household consists of Don, who is not just a computer genius but a pilot, a builder, and a damn good father; their son Steve, the marathon-running, college-bound, funniest teenager I know; and wonder dog Tater.

Other family members are Laurie, Lani's beautiful daughter who teaches at elementary levels; her handsome son Alex, aka Alexander the Great; Mary and Bo, a/k/a Mom and Dad, and Bud and Ann, Steve's patient and wonderful parents.

Love or brownies (posted by Ann)



I really enjoyed our visit last weekend, and I got some great pictures. Here's one of my favorites!










We've had a really busy week around here. I went to NY on Monday, and left there to fly to Chicago early Tuesday morning. I had the sailboat Thursday from 9 AM through Saturday at 5 PM, so I had a friend spend the night with me Friday night. We had a great time sailing, swimming, and becoming coated with bug spray, sunscreen and sweat. The good thing about fresh water sailing is you can always jump in the lake if you get too disgusting, which we did. I took several different groups out sailing with me during that time, and enjoyed myself tremendously.

We had some excitement on Friday, but before I get into it everyone is fine. Don was flying his airplane from Atlanta to Greensboro, North Carolina, to drop off a friend. One of the guys he works with has a son who is in a soccer tournament with an important game Friday night, and Rody couldn't get there in time so Don volunteered to take him. Well, he had a problem with his landing gear and the nose gear collapsed on landing. No injuries, actually Don says it was much less exciting than you'd think (good news, huh?). Rody took pictures of the whole thing and has them up on a website, so here's the link.
http://www.luckotheirish.org/ We're out an airplane for a while until it's fixed. Propellors aren't supposed to curl on the ends . . . .

And some good news. I heard from Steve! He talked to Don and left a message for me. He says he's doing fine and having fun, but I'll give you three guesses what the rest of the message was:

a) I love you
b) I miss you
c) Send 48 brownies, half with nuts and half not, to the last mail drop.

Yep, you got it, it was a brownie call. Nice to be needed, huh? Here's how to get to his trip log so you can see what they are doing.

Ok ..so I know a little about planes. And I have to say that's one HELL of a landing Don pulled off. From what I can see, it looks like a bent prop is about the worst of it. He must have dropped that thing onto the the runway like a feather to have so little overall damage. Kudos to Don! Well Done!!
