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.


Stumped at Beer O'Clock

The MO's homebrew bottlecaps have rebus puzzles on them. They're usually pretty easy to figure out, but this one has me stumped:


I figure the first word is "you'll" (ewe + L) but I haven't the faintest what the rest of it might be. There's a K, something that looks a lot like a string of pearls, and a "ton". k+necklace+ton? k+pearl+ton? k+string+ton? And then maybe that first thing is supposed to use "baa" instead of "ewe"? Maybe that L is an I? Ball (baa + L)? I just don't know....

Based on another bottlecap, I think the necklace is a "lei" but I still can't make the phrase be anything meaningful. baa+L K+lei+ton? ewe+L K+lei+ton? Crap.
