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.

 

Pre-Rita

Here's the view from our front porch at about 10:30 this evening. The storm has not yet arrived. Every now and then a gust comes by and whips the trees around a bit, but that's it so far.

A Gust

(Unfortunately that's a streetlight and not the moon.)

We stood out on the porch for about half-an-hour. The MO enjoyed a small cigar and we took pictures and generally enjoyed the cool(er) temperature.

I know it's going to get scary, but for right now, it's actually quite nice.
