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.

 

Well, That Sucked

I locked my keys in my car in the parking garage at work this morning. What a maroon!1 I was busy reading a document on the way out of the office, so it took me a while to become concerned about not finding my keys in purse. After standing at the back of my car and pulling everything out and looking at the empty interior of my bag, it occurred to me to look in the car. Doh!2 Luckily, the MO was on the way home and mere minutes from my office, so he picked me up and I took him out to dinner. So tomorrow I get to find out who to call to get into one's locked car....
