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.

Castle (posted by Ann)

A quick post, since it's 12:30 AM and I have to be up at 7.

Dinner at the castle was cool - one of the Lord what-ever-their-name-is was the guy who found Tutkhamon's tomb, so there's a really creepy Egyptian display down in the basement. It's still owned by the family, so Lady what-ever-their-name-is came to welcome us to the castle.

So here's my favorite room, where the ladies adjourn while the men smoke cigars. It's so English! Love, love, love the chintz.

And here's me on the stairs, and I so wish my eyes were open, it would be a great picture.
Here are a couple of the central hall, one looking up and one looking down from the 2nd floor gallery.

And last but not least, here's my boss's boss in front of the fireplace. Isn't he a young hot shot?? CEO of a 1.5 billion dollar global business, and I think he's not 40 yet.

So a dose of reality about the castle - lots of parts smell funky, it was freezing cold and it's not that cold here, the bus couldn't get up the driveway so we had to walk in the rain, and there are 30 bedrooms and 4 - count them, 4 - bathrooms. And when someone asked the tour guide where the family money came from, she graciously allowed that the men were expected to "marry well".
