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.


Her Name is Flora

Full name: Flora, the Lily of the West. Which means she even has a theme song :-) After a couple-hundred rounds, we are good friends. The M.O. has a new gun to name as well, and it's very nice, but I was captivated by my lovely Flora....

Joan Baez, Joan Baez Ballad Book
Tim O'Brien, Odd Man In

(If Amazon actually HAD the Joan Baez CD, I would have ordered it instantly. This was one of my favorite records when I was a little kid, and I would loooooooove to have it on CD. I even went to the Vanguard Records site, which is attractive but barely functional, and couldn't find it there. I sent them an email, we'll see what happens....)

I put the Tim O'Brien link because it has a sample of the song. It's all wrong, of course ;-) since it's not Joan's version, but it's better than nothing.

PS - If the Amazon frame looks stupid, I have no idea why. They used to look okay.... I guess I'm going to have to switch to the "host your own picture" format. What a hassle....

Update: I zapped the frames. They didn't have a picture for the Joan CD anyhow....
