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.

 

Happy Valentine's Day, You Drip!

 Woke up this morning to find our dining table awash in water dripping from the new fountain that someone installed in the chandelier without asking. Another leak in the corner of the living room, and a third in the guest bath. After installing appropriate buckets, mopping up the mess, and calling the landlord, I sat down with my cup of coffee and lo and behold, here comes a new leak in the kitchen. Now I'm wondering where the next one is going to spring up!
