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.

From one extreme to another (posted by Lani)

That's how the past two weeks were for me; from Colorado to Florida, from layering a blouse and two sweaters and a jacket and hiking through areas where there was still snow on the ground, to watching the porpoises in the bayou behind mom's house and walking barefoot through the hot sand at the beach. Life is good sometimes, y'know?

It was absolutely gorgeous in Panama City this week. I flew down on Monday and Laurie and Alex picked me up in Tallahassee; we drove back home and went with Mom and Dad to the Bonefish for dinner, which was (as always) extremely nice. The week was relaxing and lots of fun; Laurie and I went to Seaside and poked around which was fun, and I have to say I was totally amazed at how built up 30-A is now. Do you remember, Annie, when we used to take the beach buggy down there to go crabbing and beaching with the Howells? It's like another world now.

I'm trying to think of other things to tell you. Um ... it was nice? It was quiet. We went to the Club for dinner on Wednesday night with Marshall and Ann Evans and JuliaAnn; we had Dad's birthday dinner at home on Thursday; I wasn't able to get home on Friday so Mom and I did a little antiquing; and on Saturday I left.

Oh, and Laurie and Alex and I went to the beach on Wednesday and we took some pictures that she hated, but I love.

The best, though? There were a bunch of birds on the beach. There was a little boy on the beach. The results of that combination are predictable:

Those are GREAT pictures of Laurie and Alex. He looks adorable, and she looks beautiful. Particularly that one where the boat is in the background, it looks professionally done!

And in the housekeeper category, I don't know what the deal is. This one told me that it was "hard work" cleaning the house, and she was too tired at the end of day. She's leaving to go back to work at a - get this - day care center. That's clearly not hard work. Seriously.

I'm going to give it a few months to let the bad karma wear off, and then we'll try again. Maybe.
