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.

 

I Voted

Our precinct votes at an elementary school. I figured the kids would have the day off, but no, there they were. Wandering around, seemingly at random. I was beginning to wonder if there were any classes going on. Finally at 8:05 (I had over an hour to wonder about this) the announcements began. Why do the kids get there so early? I got to say the Pledge of Allegiance for the first time in a while, just a few minutes before I voted. Very appropriate, I think. No moonbats with videocameras in evidence. Everybody was pretty well behaved except the guy behind me who kept crowding me. Really, Mr. Space Invader, it didn't get you through the line any quicker.
