I feel I'm on my back

Hanging out on my mathematics blog lately? It's been quiet but steady, although I admit I have no idea what to post this week. We'll see. Recently posted, though, were these articles:

In cartoons here's 60s Popeye: Partial Post, featuring alien behavior and a flying saucer and all that Gene Deitch weirdness.

Now let's finish off walking around bunny_hugger's parents' town.

One more walk around town. Here's another house projecting lights onto itself.

And a house with wrapped-up bushes.

This was a surprise! A fallen tree that smashed much of the cement edge of the bridge. I was surprised there weren't any temporary Jersey barriers protecting traffic, but maybe they figure at 15 mph there's a tolerably low risk. Or it had happened hours before and nobody had called because it was Christmas.

The Bohm, plus lights set across the road highlighting it.


SAM_2835.jpg

A yard with a reindeer light fixture in the yard.

A decorated porch I really might have already included here. Hm.

Ah well. Here's cookies! I don't think we made as many as usual, somehow, but they filled a good number of plates when we were done.

Gertie finally decides to come inspect all these shenanigans.


SAM_2854.jpg

The cat looks back at me at a really great moment.


SAM_2859.jpg

Oh, so, that's why the tree seems to be drinking so well.

Gertie in the morning, bathed in sunlight.

And a delightful small gift from one of my mouse friends: a coati shotglass!
