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.

Dear Ann,

If you guessed that was the sound of my BRAND NEW DIGITAL CAMERA, you'd be correct.

I bought the Canon PowerShot A620 and I really look forward to playing with it. Do I need to say that I'm happy now? Because if I do, let me just say it; I'm happy. Steve is happy too; don't pay any attention to his threats to throw the camera into the lake if one more flash goes off in his eyes, he doesn't mean it.

I envy you that time on the boat and I sincerely hope you'll get to be back on it this week if your weather is anything like ours. Today was hot, and by hot I mean really, seriously, brainmeltingly hot. I made my monthly Costco run this morning and when I was leaving the thermometer at the bank showed 103. It wasn't even noon yet! I had originally planned to stop by a yarn shop I'd heard about down in Virginia Beach while I was out, but it was just too hot. When it's too hot to look at yarn, you KNOW it's hot. On the up side though, you know how at Costco and other warehouse stores you pack your food into boxes to bring it home? Well, and in my case into string bags too, but some still goes into boxes -- and those boxes make fabulous cat toys.

Hunter is an incredibly tolerant kitty.

Back to yarn, look at the Arrgh!yle! I totally love that, it's fabulous. You're right, they'd be perfect sailing socks; but even if it weren't for that, you MUST make them immediately if not sooner so that you can wear them on National Talk Like A Pirate Day, which is coming up VERY soon - September 19th, to be precise. Maybe one day I'll feel confident enough in my knitting to try those; after I've completed a plain sock, that is. Or preferably two plain socks, since one is the loneliest number and all that. For now I'm back to working on the baby 'ghan (and then the sacque and booties) for Mel. Tempting is on the backburner until I'm done with this; sweaters will wait, babies won't.

Yeah, he's Onyx -- and he already answers to it, so obviously it's the right name :)
