Waterloo sunset's fine

The heat's broken. Here's my mathematics blog for the week. I've figured what I'm going to do for my humor blog and its Tuesday bits for the rest of the month, by the way, but that's a holding action. Let me know if you have a good idea for stuff to review for after that.

Plus, for the comics? What's Going On In Prince Valiant? When Does Prince Valiant Take Place? April - July 2018. I didn't before today know there was a specific era for the comic strip. Nice to know.

A warning among the tray returns over by the pizza place. Well, I'll take it seriously.


Heading out for the night as what's surely one of the last Musik Express rides reaches warp speed.


And a last look at the Giant Ferris Wheel, as we finally headed out for the night.
