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.


You Really Can Get Good Customer Service

Unable to turn up my spare car key, today I had to find out who to call to get my car unlocked. I started with RMS, because I figured they could at least give me a hint about whether to call a wrecker or a locksmith or somebody else entirely, and I hoped they might even have a referral. Once again I was reminded why I always take my car to these guys.... Not only did Blake remember me (he always does--how do people do that? it's a terrific trait for someone in a service business to have) but he took care of tracking down a wrecker in the appropriate area, who called me to arrange the extrication of my keys.

So, for any local readers, if you need work done on your car, consider RMS Auto Care (713-529-5855, corner of Westheimer and Woodhead). And if you need a wrecker, call Walter at Aaladin Wrecker Service (713-849-1333).

Thus endeth the Public Service Announcement for the day.
