I could make the hawk turn stupid if I entered into 'in'

My subject line hasn't got any relevance to anything here; I just couldn't think of a link and we were listening to some of our albums this evening. Anyway, here's stuff from my mathematics blog, in case you haven't been following it the past week:

And in story strip action? What's Going On In The Phantom (Weekdays)? October 2017 - January 2018 It's the Return of the Locust, who hasn't actually returned to the strip since the last time I caught up with the dailies. Hm.

And now a little something for c_eagle and one of the historic antique rides at Six Flags over Texas:

C'mooooon, anyone wanna give Foghorn Leghorn a big old hug?

Well (snif), all right. (Snif.) It's no feathers off my beak (snif) if nobody does (snif).

Six Flags Over Texas's antique carousel, hidden behind a performing stage and a banner for the concerts, so that while it's got a great spot you'd barely know it was there.

Chariot on the Six Flags Over Texas carousel, featuring a bunch of dragons climbing all over each other, which I admit is one of my favorite chariot motifs.

The carousel in action. There's nobody I know in this picture; I just like how the light makes it feel all warm and friendly.

The carousel between rides, and taken from the sort of arty angle that I actually like.


Trivia: Flanders and parts of Belgium dropped the dates between 22nd and 31st December 1582 to convert to the Gregorian calendar, so that those areas observed no Christmas Day.
