Time Event

I think I know now what's making me sad; it's a yearning for my own back yard

Comic Strip Master Command dared my mathematics blog to write about anything but comics this week, and I completely failed to do so. I was spending a lot of the week trying to get GoComics.com to stop breaking their stuff.

And I have half of a set of satisfying answers to What's Going On In Gasoline Alley? And What Happened To Jim Scancarelli? If you were wondering.

I took more pictures of Motor City Fur[ry] Con on Saturday, since, particularly, the fursuits were out and about! Let's enjoy.

Raccoons gathering for the Motor City Fur[ry] Convention fursuit parade. Not sure why all the ringtails were getting there at the same time.

And this is why fursuit parades always start late, if participants are going to be easily drawn off by the sight of gathered cameras.

Fursuiters gathering and I like that I got Malamute way up front like that, by accident.

Trivia: On the first anniversary of the repeal of the Stamp Act, British soldiers cut down the pine tree erected as a liberty pole in New York City's Commons. Sons of Liberty placed a new pine tree there the next day, with the trunk circled by iron bands to render it axe-proof. Soliders attempted to blow it up with gunpowder, unsuccessfully.
