Weaver men wore short-shorts in 1987
Jill and I have had a few adventures during our 40 years of marriage. The one we are most proud of is the successful raising of nine children. We didn't set out to have that many, but as each child arrived and quickly provided so much delight with their unique personality, we figured there was always room for one more; and there was after we renovated our house twice to add more bedrooms. The two pictures above were taken in 1987 when we only had four sons. All us Weaver men (and Jill) wore short-shorts in those days. Terry (5) is on the left, that's me holding three and half month old Tim, with Luke (8) and Ken (6) standing on the right. The pic was taken at Parry's Inlet on the south coast in January 1987. The other was taken on a different expedition a few months later in April. We were camping much further north in the dry Gascoigne region east of Carnarvon. Terry was checking out a packet of Samboy crisps while Ken gave their little brother Tim a drink.
