If it's the last thing we ever do

I went back to sluggish this week on my mathematics blog. If you missed what I posted there, here's the content, fresh for your aggregation:

I don't always have good ideas for Reading the Comics edition names. And in comic strip content: What's Going On In The Phantom (Weekdays)? January - April 2018, the end of the Locust story and the start of the end(?) of the Nomad. Once that's done, here's the aftermath of Anthrohio and the time before the time we started heading home:


Monday, returning our keys and peeking around the hotel for one last look. This was the main ballroom where most of the dances and the opening and closing ceremonies were held.


Outside! What the main lobby looked like, at least, on a gorgeous day.


And a view outside the parking lot to the shopping mall where we'd eat if we didn't have time to go to the burrito place or some more distant environment. There's a rather nice Mediterranean restaurant in there. The mall used to be all enclosed, and then got renovated so many of the storefronts open outside, which I like because indoor malls are good things people, we have a thing called ``winter'' north of the Ohio River.


What the karaoke room looks like when it's not all dressed up for furries. I don't even know it.


Another picture mostly for me: the door at the far end of the corridor that we would use all the time pretty near every year, for access to our room. Yes, it's a lot of fun to haul the Silver Behemoth suitcase up those seven stairs before getting to the door.


And the central parking lot with its quite persistent downward slope. It's between the two main corridors, the convention's hotel room block on the right and normal people on the left. The doors at the center are where all those adoptable bunnies were shown off, and is where every other year the fursuit parade gathered for the group photo.

Trivia: On the 30th of June, 1870, the Pennsylvania Railroad leased the whole property and rights-of-way of the United New Jersey Railroad and Canal Company for 999 years. Source: New Jersey: America's Main Road, John T Cunningham.
