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.


Big Day Tomorrow!

Tomorrow we have Pursuit of Happiness in several dimensions!

First up, the Museum of Printing History's yard sale, where I hope to acquire an old type cabinet to install in my side of the "studio" (home office) to store paper. Since my bookmaking class went so well, I think I'll be buying more paper :-)

Next, a stop by the MO's (real) office to hang some newly acquired industrial landscape oil paintings.

Then, American Shooting Centers for some long-delayed-by-poor-weather-and-other-lame-excuses rifle and pistol firing, including Mr. Completely's Killiards Postal Match. I'll be shooting Flora and Ivan for the competition, and Chester just for fun while the MO sights in a new rifle.

I suspect all that will be followed by something yummy to eat and some adult beverages, which should add up to a near-perfect day. What more could you want from a weekend, anyhow? And now to bed, for the yard sale starts at 8:00 and I don't want to miss my chance at a cabinet!!
