And we'll all mark time as we go

(Holding bunny_hugger.)


Busy weekend. Busy today. Busy tomorrow. Filler for now.

In watching 60s Popeye: Giddy Gold --- and wait, could Popeye return to the comics page? Also, the cartoon has a special guest star just for bunny_hugger.

In looking back over my mathematics blog I'm Using my A to Z Archives: Unbounded, which is about what you'd think from the name.


Now let's look at Michigan's Adventure as it stood in August 2019.

The llamas would like to join the conversation but don't know what to say.

There, that's the wide-eyed look of panic I have when anyone leaves a comment on any of my blogs.

I did not realize my camera had a ``photograph a duck so you can see every cell in every feather'' mode but I'm glad it does.

And now finally, the bunnies!

The rabbits were hanging out quite near and, you see, technically behind the fan. Also I guess they're not interested in chewing wires.

Spotted some wild nature too! This chipmunk was hanging around the petting zoo.

Chipmunk laying low until they're sure they have something worth eating.

Chipmunk enjoys a quick meal while the bird stands guard.

Oh, bunny's chinned the fan, now it's hers.

Lick lick lick lick lick lick lick.

And a bit of mutual nuzzling, now. More bunny pictures to come.


Trivia: In 1905 Richard Sears launched a promotional project in Iowa, offering customers there premiums in exchange for their distributing catalogues to 24 friends. This ``Iowaization'' worked so well it expanded to all of America and quite made the catalogue business work.
