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.


International Cats

The cats are on a plane! And they thought they were just going to the vet, which would have been bad enough…. They arrive tomorrow, spend Friday night in quarantine at the airport, then on Saturday go to some other quarantine place. We’ll get to go visit them there on Saturday afternoon. Ten days later, they get sprung from kitty jail, and FINALLY the household will be complete :-)

(This video is from before we left, when I took them to the vet for the first of their series of shots and other indignities required by International Travel Cat Bureau of Paperwork and Frustration.)
