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.


Love for Lorax

We had a kitty scare this weekend. Our feisty Lorax puked all day Sunday (not unusual now and then, but this was impressive in quantity and frequency) and wouldn't even eat a treat, much less real food. By the end of the day, she was only walking a few feet at a time, and then hunkering down on the floor for a while. She wouldn't jump up anywhere, and was obviously unhappy. This morning, she barely protested being put in the cat carrier (normally a huge battle) and the MO took her off to the vet. It took them all day to figure out that she has a urinary tract infection. They zapped her with an antibiotic, and we have pills to try to get down her throat for the next week. She's not back to normal by a long shot, but is definitely more mobile now than she was yesterday. Poooooor kitty, it's just so odd to see her so subdued.

So for those of you who love the kitties, please think some happy thoughts for the Lorax over the next few days as she recovers. She will reward you by returning to her perch on top of the MO's monitor for more glamour shots ;-)

we love lorax
