Welcome to "Twigsy's Twilight Cafe" -- Your Hostess, Lori-Ann D'Antonio

Please come in and visit with the members of the Champlin, D'Antonio and Paynich families!

Like many people, we live in a "blended" family. I married Al Paynich on May 23, 1983 (my birthday), we had 2 daughters, Margaret and Nicole in 1985 and 1987, and divorced in 1992. That year I married John Roy Champlin, and we had a daughter, Bridget in 1996. John died on March 15, 2002. Click "John Roy Champlin Memorial Page" for his memorial page.

We are still "blended" in that Al lives with Nicole, Bridget and me. Margaret went away to college in August 2003 and probably won't live at home full time anymore.

Here's a picture of my beautiful daughters, taken in March, 2004:

So Who's "Twigsy?"

You might be wondering who the "Twigsy" in "Twigsy's Twilight Cafe" is -- it's me! I've had the nickname since I was a little girl and my dad's friends used to call me "Little Twigsy" after my dad, whose nickname was "Twigs." I even have it on my license plates (and have old plates from Arizona and Texas with the name on them). Just one of the ways I stand out in the world.
