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.


Too nice to be a pet???

I received an email with an article about Savannah cats, and I googled a bit to find out more about them (can't resist anything kitty!) and found this statement on a site selling kittens:

And last but not least, a very wild looking F2 female available, nice dark spotting, short thick tail, and big ears, just perfect, she was born March 12. Would like her in a breeding program, as she is just too nice to sell as a pet.

Okay, now, something about that makes me a bit queasy. I guess it's inherent in any breeding program, but then breeding programs make me uncomfortable, too. I'll stick with the mutts from the vet or the pound.
