I took some more chances to look back at stuff on my humor blog. This is because LiveJournal's year-in-review image was just a boring picture confirming that in 2018 I did post 365 times. WordPress at least let me tell what was popular.
- How To Get Ready To Go Someplace By Car, last week's major piece.
- In Which I Have A Non-Soggy Excuse but mostly I'm distracted by something silly I learned regarding Cap'n Crunch.
- Statistics Saturday: Some Useful Triplets Of Words an exercise in nerd-sniping that didn't work at all.
- What’s Going On In Mary Worth? Is That Student Really Infatuated With Professor Ian? October 2018 – January 2019 recapping one of the more delightfully goofball plots in the story strips recently.
- What Was Popular Around Here In All Of 2018 and go ahead, guess what people liked my humor blog for.
- Popeye’s Island Adventure offers a sloppy Toast to Popeye as a cartoon fools me into thinking Popeye won't even be in it.
- What My Brain Has Been Doing To Me Lately, A Quick Complaint regarding me wanting to follow up a piece in a way that wouldn't make the slightest bit of sense.
- Sensible, this week's major piece.
And now I close out pictures of Conneaut Lake Park.
The Conneaut Lake Park carousel's building, as seen from outside, while the ride's all lit up.
People getting onto the Tumble Bug ride at night. The guy in the hoodie is definitely not planning to get his revenge on me.
People who're a little bit chilly debating whether to get on Blue Streak before it closes for the night.
Noticed this in the back of the you-must-be-this-tall-to-ride sign at Blue Streak: that definitely reads 'Scrambler', doesn't it? They don't have a Scrambler currently, I don't think.
Blue Streak ride operator casually working the brake levers.
Getting ready to welcome the train back.
I believe we just missed the last ride of the night. Here's the remaining National Amusement Device train at the unloading area.
View from the floor of the back of the train and the top of the station.
People --- and a dog --- walking off into the light, past the already-closed carousel, at the end of a night at Conneaut Lake Park.
Oh yeah, this little mystery at our hotel: why the padlock and bracket across this one door? We couldn't think of anything this would get you that the normal keycard-access door lock wouldn't.
Trivia: The eastern latitudinal stretch of the border between North Carolina and South Carolina was, per a royal decree of 1735, to be at the 35th parallel. It ended up surveyed thirteen miles south of this latitude. (South Carolina was later compensated with some farther west lands that would otherwise have been North Carolina.)
