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.


Swimming Kitties

I dreamed last night that Melvin and Lorax were swimming. On purpose. And they liked it. More like dog-paddling (cat-paddling?) really, since they weren't putting their faces under (obviously my dream--if it had been Mark's dream they'd have been scooting around underwater like porpoises). I was trying to get a picture of Melvin for the blog, but the light was reflecting off the water and all my shots came out as just a Melvin-cat head floating in a white glare. I guess I'm feeling guilty for not joining the Carnival lately?
