Something Pithy Here

"Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop." -- The King of Hearts

I'm an adopted Texan. As they say, "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!" I post pictures and opinions as suits my mood, mostly because I can. Hooray Internet! 

So far I have three blogs here. By the Way is the oldest. I started it in 2003. I lost a couple of years to Vox because I was too lazy to bother to export when they shut down. I consider it an exercise in accepting impermanence. When I followed my husband to Singapore for his first expat assignment, I started (T)expatriate: A Southern Girl in Singapore. That covers 2010 and 2011, give or take. Next came Oslo, and (T)expat 2: Norwegian Boogaloo,  in 2012. Now I'm back home, and back on By the Way.

Pix live on Flickr. I toss links out on Twitter when I feel like it. I'm still not sure what to do with G+ but I kinda like it.


Twenty Two!!

I shot 22/50 on sporting clays today :-) So far, that's my personal best. It was on the easiest course, but still, I'm pretty excited about it. The low-recoil loads that Mark found for me are a HUGE improvement. Now it's actually easier to shoot my gun than his. His still pushes (aside from being way too big for me) and now shooting Maggie is like shooting a bb gun. Sweet! I just have to figure out what to do with the six boxes of dove shot that I have left.... It's going to be really hard to convince myself to shoot the heavy stuff after getting used to these wonderful shells.
