Seattle, Washington

Hey guys 'n' gals,

Ned's got us aimed at the Pacific -- we're going to Seattle. Big gig for mom and a chance to see my dad's sister, Aunt Melinda. She's a stage actress, really talented and really sweet too. And of course that means we'll be seeing YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE - hi Maggie, hi Miranda. (My two little cousins - I know they surf my Web site all the time, so I thought I'd just say hi directly.) Melinda's starring as the head witch in a repertory production of "Macbeth"; it opens at the same time as Mom's gig, but Melinda invited us to the dress rehearsal. It's gonna be awesome. Tell your mom thanks, M&M;!

Hi Weird Lovers (including my amazing cousins M&M;),

Well, after Aunt Melinda did HER performance in "Macbeth" at that theater in Seattle, we ended up putting on our OWN little drama, only this time the magic was REAL!! Aunt Melinda was using this old book as a prop in the play (she's playing the head witch); I read a spell from it as a goof to make Maggie and Miranda think I could turn Jack into a frog and BOOM! Jack disappears and this little dragonthing goes running into the shadows!! Turns out Jack was just doing a goof on ME (he went down through a trapdoor) but the dragonthing was REAL. M&M; and I went after it, to capture it, and only managed to make it twice the size. Fortunately my big brother came to my rescue (and he thought he was PLAYING at being a knight -- YAY JACK!) and drove the thing back onto the book, where it had come from. The book sucked it back in, and of course nobody believed us (well, M&M; ARE a little hard to take seriously). Then after all THAT, Aunt Melinda tells me the book used to belong to my DAD, who left it at her house before he died. I keep wondering what HE would have been doing with it, especially since the spell ends with these words: "... in ainm muintir O'Sianhan." That translates (as near as I can figure without making anybody suspicious) as "... in the name of family O'Shannon". O'Shannon being the maiden name of my mom's mom, gramma Kathleen!! Does this book belong to my mom's family? Could those stories gramma Kathleen tells about there being witches in our family be TRUE?? I get the feeling my mom has got some kind of secret, but I'm not going to push it. I'm happy enough just to have the book of spells ... for now
