Your life is free as running water, fresh as morning dew

I have to apologize, mostly to bunny_hugger. Between recovering from the first real snow of the season (five and a half inches, says the noon news), and preparing things for the pinball league finals tonight, and everything else, I just haven't had time to finish writing about the Vortex Farewell Trip. As compensation, please take a bunch of Anthrohio 2018 Sunday photographs. With luck I'll finish the Vortex story tomorrow.

Leaderboards! Anthrohio had these RFID cards and check-in stations, and offered achievements for people who did stuff like ate at hospitality. Here bunny_hugger checks her standings.

The achievements that bunny_hugger had made. You can see how rough a schedule we had that she was counted as an Early Bird.

The actual physical badges. There's at least one that bunny_hugger earned but failed to get the physical copy of, to her irritation.

People gathering, already, for the Closing Ceremonies.

Dragon poking his head out of the puppet stage.

Fox Amoore and Pepper Coyote adding a bit of music to Closing Ceremonies.

BoozyBadger and the Box Owls announce the takeover of Anthrohio, setting up the Corporate Takeover ``plot'' for Anthrohio 2019.

Ed Hyena, ``tasered'', gets dragged off stage.

So! The gripe session afterward, people talking about what went well and what went wrong to board members while they start taking the convention apart.


SAM_6717.jpg

The stage already disappearing. Sure hope these people work for the con.

The puppet stage being disassembled for, so far as we know, the last time; they had a different stage without a puppet area for 2019.

Trivia: Time Zones, in the United States, are set and adjusted by the Secretary of Transportation. Source: Marking Time: The Epic Quest to Invent the Perfect Calendar, Duncan Steel. (As opposed to, say, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the US Naval Observatory, or any part of the Defense Department. It's legacy of standard time, and time zones, as creations of the railroads.)
