Dancing by the Nile, the ladies love his style

Have I had time to think about my mathematics blog? Technically speaking, yes, I have. What have I put on it recently? This.

Also, if you don't want to know What’s Going On In Mark Trail? From November 2017 to February 2018? Did He Scream A Lot? then you are missing out on one of the greatest single panels from the story comics from 2017 and that's a year that included Mary Worth's cruise ships fascination. So. On to the last day at Motor City Fur[ry] Con, where I actually got a couple more pictures worth sharing than I did on Saturday. Not sure how that happened.

What that scary goose was defending: they'd set up a nest in the landscaping of the Holiday Inn Express and there was only so close you could get without the male getting really quite anxious and thus making you anxious.

The bar in con suite, mostly showing off the wolf handle for one of the taps.

One of our panels was about how to make your own video game console, with a demonstration, that eventually got through glitches with the projector. The picture being sideways wasn't one of the glitches; you have to set the monitor that way.

And showing off the parts of a video game console, which amounts to circuit boards you get from somewhere I don't know because we came in late, and a frame, and a lot of buttons and wires.

Someone bringing a bribe of food to the people guarding con suite.

Closing ceremonies already! Also one of about two times I remembered what the con theme was.
