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.

Don (posted by Ann)

Thursday night, I returned home from four fun-filled hours at O'Hare waiting for a flight that never materialized (don't ask). I noticed a newsletter from Angel Flight, which is a great organization that Don has joined. I opened it up and was thumbing through it, and was really surprised at what I saw. Go check it out.

He's also been working on something else that's pretty cool. When you have a small plane, people go for what they call a "$100 Hamburger". That means you fly somewhere just to have lunch, so by the time you get back you've spent $100 on a burger. These days, gas prices being what they are, maybe they should call it the $250 burger, but you get the idea. There used to be a free site with restaurants listed, so you could figure out where to go that was close to a general aviation field, but they changed the site to require a fee. So - Don set up his own called Flying-Food. He was in the Cessna Pilot's Association newsletter last year for that. He keeps asking me to help him make it prettier, and I have to admit that I really haven't done anything about it. Maybe I should since he's getting to be famous.

We're just so impressed at our house I thought I would share.

That's way cool. I think our family has always known Don is a hero -- but it's nice to see him getting some official recognition, too.
