But Auntie Mame, it's one week from Thanksgiving Day now

So, some stuff came up and I couldn't write as much for my mathematics blog as I'd meant to last week. Here's what I did get to doing.

Probably there'll be more this week. I think I've got some old Thanksgiving content I can reshuffle, for example. And, of course, if you've not been sure what's going on in Mark Trail since August, well, here's your chance to get caught up. All caught up? Good. Let's do some more Christmas pictures. And a couple miscellaneous things.

Christmas ornament stand, purchased last year at Bronner's, with some of the decorations that didn't rate bunny_hugger's parents' tree. ... Will admit, I've never understood ``skyscrapers'' as ornaments.

bunny_hugger's parents' tree, in the sun room where it fit now that they had a free-standing fireplace that otherwise does so very much for the living room.

Stitchception! bunny_hugger in her adorable fluffy alien kigurumi holding the four-armed Stitch plush I'd gotten on the work trip.

A neurotic basset hound moulds herself to the contours of bunny_hugger's father, the only thing in the world she isn't terrified of at all times.

And miscellanety: the hipster bar near our home dressed up for Christmas. There's three banks of pinball machines in view here, two of them upstairs and one in the far distance on the first floor. Those would get moved, although close enough to the pool tables that we're always bumping into pool players or they into pinball players.

Trophies bunny_hugger made for the Silver Balls tournament, run in 2016 in honor of Stephen with donations going to the rabbit rescue from which she got him. Made of stuff from Michael's and, I think, possibly Bronner's. Also a lot of glittery spray paint.
