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.


Cats don't like housework

Both the cats are scared stiff of the vacuum cleaner, so Saturday morning usually isn't their favorite time. Today I decided to invade their hiding places....

Melvin goes behind the curtains in my bathroom. This is her standard "I'm not here" location, no matter what she's scared of. I think she's a big proponent of the "If I can't see the bad thing, it can't see me" theory. I snuck outside and stood in the azalea bush to get the picture.

Lorax tucks in under The Mad Oilman's shirts on the desk in his closet. As you can see, there is just exactly a cat-sized space between the top of the desk and the hems of the clothes. And she fills it elegantly, as she does most things.
