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.


Silly Ducks

I had no idea ducks could be so cute! The MO received an Orvis catalog yesterday, and the cover photo shows a bunch of ducks coming in for a landing, their feet sticking out at all angles, their bodies tilting crazily in the sky. They look like they've just got their learner's permits and haven't quite figured out how to steer yet.

The photo credit in the catalog is for Tom Vezo, and sure enough, here is the original photo (with even more ducky goodness, as it was cropped on the right for the catalog). Too cute for words, really.
