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.

Bonjour! (posted by Ann)


I am in Paris this weekend visiting my friend Mario, who has a puppy named Io. He is a 10 month old golden retriever and is adorable. Mario is doing a very good job with him, he is well socialized and is very sweet.

We went walking in a park close to Mario's apartment, and found pony rides with Shetland ponies. Don, this one is for you since I know you love ponies. I wish you could feel the fur - it is so thick this time of year, it's like petting a bear. The pony I'm standing next to is the largest one in the bunch, there was one that might come up to Don's knees.



Between my office in London and the hotel was St. Paul's Cathedral. I walked every day back and forth, and this is the worst picture but it is really pretty. There are footpaths laid out through London for different tours, and it just happened that my path to the office was on the Jubilee Footpath.




I had time this week to have dinner with a friend who still works at Aon, Sally, and I was showing her my most recent knitting so here is a picture of her modeling my Optic Mittens and a cashmere lace scarf. I was wearing both and she admired them so I asked her to model them for me.
I am headed back to London tomorrow night on the Eurostar train, then will fly to Isle of Man for a meeting on Monday, then fly back home Tuesday. Lots of trains, taxis and airplanes so I am getting lots of work done and lots of knitting too. Finished knitting when I return home, and hello from Mario to everyone.
