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 Family Rocks

Dinner tonight with The Fastest Lawyer in Houston! Here's the story on the marathon: Cousin Kirst and her friend had originally signed up for the full marathon, but decided "on game day" to just do the half. But the computer didn't know that.... So their times went against the full marathon. They finished the half-marathon in 2 1/2 hours, but they had on full-marathon bibs, so when they crossed the finish line, apparently the press went nuts and got all excited about "two local lawyers" with astounding times. (Sadly, the official website has since been updated to show the half-marathon times--her pace was just over 5 minutes/mile yesterday. Why didn't I take a screen shot then???)

Anyhow, Aunt Maureen was in town for the occasion and tonight we had dinner with our California kin, friend Cindy, and Just Joe and Marianne. In virtual attendance was The First Nephew, whose fierce sports-face is completely at odds with his incredibly sweet nature (sorry for telling on you, LG ;-)

As The Man sez, that boy is gonna be a lady-killer....
