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.


Nice People

I just got a flyer from Nice People for the Texas shows. This guy is super-nice and has a huge selection of beautiful crystal beads. I haven't bought from him in a couple of years, but I really like the stuff I got last time.

One thing I haven't resolved is how to satisfactorily store crystal beads. For now, they're all sort of wrapped up separately, because I don't want to just dump them in with everything else--the edges are fragile and the AB can scratch. But they're also pretty much out-of-sight, out-of-mind, so I'll have to come up with some other plan eventually.

Here are the dates:
Tuesday, July 29 El Paso, TX
Sunday, August 3 San Antonio, TX
Wednesday, August 6 Austin, TX
Saturday, August 9 Houston, TX
Saturday, August 16 Dallas, TX

More details are available on their website.
