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.

Almost Famous (posted by Ann)

Imagine my surprise when I arrived in the UK office this morning and was told that the guys who work for me here have read this blog.

So, now, let's analyze this a bit. I don't know why I was surprised, we have our names on the blog so I'm sure if you google our names you'll find it. I guess I didn't think I was interesting enough to Google, but when I think about it I've googled my boss, and my boss's boss. And I have a picture of their boss out sailing somewhere in our archives, though I didn't put his name.

So enough of that. Whoever wants to read is welcome, though as they've figured out by now it's mostly about knitting, gossip, and whatever is going on in our lives. The big excitement is Tater's nose-dive out the car, or your new job, or my Mis-Adventures in Knitting. I love to hear what's going on with you, and I know Mom is thrilled to hear about our lives, and Charlotte tells me it's great to hear all the news that's current since neither of us are the correspondents that she is.

Speaking of Charlotte, I have a stack of letters from her going back to when I moved to Chicago seven years ago, and one of these days I'm going to figure out how to display them. I have a couple I want to frame - especially the one when she talked about buying leather pants and she swears David channeled her Mother when he said "If you gain five pounds, those won't fit you anymore!".

Thanks for the chatty posts, I'm thrilled you survived your IOE though I never doubted it. I do think you're going to love it, it seems the perfect job for you! I'll post again tomorrow with more pictures, but I just couldn't resist a quick update.

Do you know, Ann, I've never actually googled anybody's name? Just never occurred to me. DOH! So, I'm probably even more surprised than you are at the actual composition of our newly expanded readership. I had noticed that we were getting hits from the UK and also from elsewhere around the world; yes, Kimberly reads us from Brussels but there've been a ton of foreign hits -- Finland, Germany, Turkey, Australia, Japan, the Netherlands (more of your guys?), to name just the most recent few. I wondered why people were so interested in our dogs and cats and knitting and so forth. Too funny!

You've missed all the fun if you haven't googled! You can find a picture of me from almost three years ago. There is a historical "Charlotte de Ros" too. But look for the one that says "11 Alive Community Service Awards" for my picture.
