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.

 

05:14 PM- black keys, the / when the lights go out [rubber factory] on the fat possum label.

I heard a bit of this on KTRU on the way home today. Sounded kind of like R. L. Burnside.

[pause for research]

Here is a website with some samples (try All Hands Against His Own). And well whaddayaknow, look who else is on the label! (Wish I Was in Heaven Sitting Down is one of my favorite records of all time.) I swear I didn't look it up first :-)

Oh yeah, this one goes on the wish list. And I have a lot of exploring to do on the Fat Possum website.
