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.


Rooooooooooooad Trip!

Road Trip

The MO and I headed to Dallas this weekend with Prime Time Lou and the Fiberglass Badger to celebrate their 17th wedding anniversary with a trip to Ranger Stadium in Arlington to see a Rangers baseball game. (Okay, given the, um, lack of splendiforousness of the Rangers, it was really all about seeing the stadium.) Which was nice:

We had great seats:

Turns out the Rangers are not really a very good baseball team. (I'm trying to be nice here.) I think we saw as many errors there as we saw at G2's high school game last week. But we did get to see the Red Ozarka Dot wipe out in a spectacular way:

We also went to see the Turner exhibit at the Dallas Museum of Art, which was really impressive. We did not, however, see the sculpture garden, because it was not included in the "see it all" pass we bought at the museum and we didn't feel like dropping $40 to fancify our stroll back to the car. This is what you can see from the outside:
