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.


My Great Greats

Gay Sisters.jpg
These lovely ladies are my great-grandmother (upper right) and her sisters. Aren't they wonderful! The picture was taken in 1915. I scanned it in from a print that Mom & Dad gave me. They have a treasure trove of photos and documents, mostly from Dad's side of the family. I think it will be a lot of fun to gather some family history for our (eventual) kids, partly because Mark's background is so different from mine. My family has been here since the ship after the Mayflower (so I hear) and his grandparents were immigrants. And here we are, in the melting pot, being Americans :-)
