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.

 

In Which the Rest of the World Catches Up with ME!

I had to laugh (and then take a picture of my foot) when I read this article in the WSJ today:

I had no idea I was so fashion-forward! According to the story, there are folks out there who think it's perfectly reasonable to fork over $1,190 for a pair of sandals (that black Manolo on the left was carved from one very high-society alligator). I'm not one of them, but it does make me feel a little bit better about how much I paid to have my favorite pair resoled last year.

(Yes, it's February, and yes, I'm wearing sandals. I wear sandals all year. Because I live here. No snow for this southern chickee.)
