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.

Steve got his braces off, we went sailing, I went to California . . . (posted by Ann)

I don't know if you recall, but Steve has had to wear braces twice. Once in fifth and sixth grade, and then again in high school. He had really, really bad teeth, but no more! Finally, the ordeal is all over, and he's pretty happy about that, as you can see.

We also brought the boat down from storage. It was an interesting trip, because the weather wasn't great. Here's what we looked at the whole trip:

Yep. Totally fogged in. Now, I love sailing, but it's really nice to be able to see something other than the boat and a thin strip of water around it! This is what it looked like for 6 hours down the lake. You had to keep watch, because who knew when another boat might appear from the fog, but there was nothing to see. Nothing. We eventually took turns keeping watch and reading a book.

You will also notice that Don looks pretty bundled up - it was cold. Seriously damp and cold. I always bring ten extra layers of clothing, because I'm always cold, but Don didn't have another pair of socks so he struggled to sort of get into a pair of mine. Check out this fashion statement.

Old topsiders, my purple and yellow fleece socks, his white socks, jeans, and foul weather gear. Quite the man-about-town, isn't he?

I headed off to San Diego on Wednesday for a meeting, and stayed here. It was a gorgeous place to stay, and I did find 30 minutes one evening to walk on the sand and stick my toes in the water, which was very cold. I made the fateful decision to come home Saturday instead of taking a red eye after the dinner Friday night. My flight cancelled, so I got routed through San Francisco, and had to travel all day to get back.

That's been our week - I know we will be out your way soon to visit the school, we are deciding early this week the exact date. It will be in May, so that isn't too far away! I'm looking forward to seeing you and Steve, and hoping that my Steve likes the school near you so I can have family at least within the same time zone.

How's life for you?

Steve looks great, and VERY happy about the new look. Not having a metalmouth suits him well :) Hopefully by next Friday I'll be able to hobble enough to show you some of the local sights. At the very least we can sit on the porch and enjoy the birds, the chipmunks, and the daily fox; I look forward to that more than you can imagine.

As for Don, you can tell him from me that Dirk Pitt always looks dashing no matter what he wears -- and so does Don.
