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.


Why Women Have Girlfriends

In an email from Prime Time Lou to the Man, regarding his reference to me as "the Mrs.":

Couldn't you just romance Darcy's handle a bit and call her Swampthinghoneysnookumsbeadbaby? After all, you're getting ready to celebrate 2 years of matrimony.

My sentiments exactly ;-)

(Actually, I don't particularly mind "the Mrs." although that title is already quite established in the blogosphere and I have no illusions that I'll ever be playing in Connie's league! (That was a compliment--I hope it sounds that way.) And, well, "the Man" isn't really very imaginative either. We'll see what transpires as he gets into this blogging thing. Does anybody have any brilliant ideas?)
