DucKon report, part 2

Finally, some pix from DucKon.

Because I just don't have time, I'm saving half an hour by letting the LJ web page format these instead of doing it myself, and including minimal captions even though I might have more to say about some of these pictures.  But this way, you get to see something at least.  I still have more pix, but again, no time right now; maybe I'll get to it before I leave and maybe I won't.

DucKon report, part 3

Argh, I meant to include these pix in the previous post, but I didn't have them in the pile.  Sorry to clutter up your friends page, but I don't want people who looked at the last post right away to miss these birdie pix, because they're cool.

The birds in this post and the previous one are ambassadors from the World Bird Sanctuary in Missouri.  (I think I misidentified the organization as Wild Bird Sanctuary in my earlier post.)  Big kudos to DucKon for bringing in such a cool program.

Annoyances

  1. My D&D game was canceled again, at the last moment.  Sort of a blessing in disguise -- now I have a few extra hours.

  2. I stopped off at my mom's, to walk the dog and to pick up her Minnesota DeLorme atlas.  But on the highway home (after passing the last Urbana exit), I realize that I left the effin' thing at her place.  I must have put it down when I realized, on my way out the door, that I hadn't filed the DVDs I just made in my off-site backup file.

  3. I also realized, on the highway home, that I'd forgotten to stop at Meijer while I was out in west Champaign.  My routine was thrown off because the D&D game was canceled.  Of course, if I'd remembered, I would have had to fight much worse traffic and crowds than when I normally shop.

  4. I picked up the last snail mail I'll get until I get back, and there's my property tax bill.  Plus: I can stop fretting that it got lost somewhere (it should have been here before now).  Minus: the bloodsucking leeches raised my assessed value by more than 15% year-on-year.


It's a good thing I'm going on vacation.
