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.


Of course I always use the phonetic alphabet

Yeah, right.... I didn't even know it had an official name.... Russ at TacJammer rants about people like me who don't know their Alphas from a Hotel in the Golf where internationally-accepted verbal spelling is concerned. I was just recounting to my coworkers my attempt to get "cgi-bin" spelled across a bad cell-phone connection during an emergency tech-support call from the M.O. I don't remember what I came up with for the first part, but I used Beer, Internet, Noodle for the last part. Hey, it worked, and it still kinda makes me giggle :-)
