2015 Hawks Convention is in the books

Once again a fun time was had by all! There was a bit of an issue to start the festivities off as they had trouble finding my additional passes that I had paid for in JANUARY! At least they handled the situation perfectly and gave us the passes we were missing while also taking my credit card info to check when online back at their offices rather than waiting until they had it figured out. That was good as I didn’t get a call until Monday where they said sure enough I had indeed paid for those passes already! Good customer service Blackhawks …

Anyway, if you want to see some of what we spent our weekend doing, check out the 2015 convention pics. I’ll have to do a better job of capturing more of our off-convention stuff. This year our big family dinner was spent at Italian Village where Max went for the marathon runners special to carbo load for the Sunday convention day 🙂

Speaking of returning greats …

At least in the world of cartooning … something interesting is afoot this week. After quite a long time away, it appears we’ve returned to the land of Bloom County. New cartoons this week appearing on Breathed’s Facebook page. Come on, you know you missed Opus!

Hawks Convention Pictures – 2013 and 2014

Hello dear readers! I know, its been too long since I wrote anything here :-\ To be fair, you DO get a twitter stream from me over there on the right which keeps you kind of up to date! Besides, I really do need to do a post here about a subject that’s still actually not easy for me yet … I’ll get there! In the meantime, as I await departing for this years Hawks convention this weekend, I had a request from the fantastic Help Desk Matt to put together some photos of the past conventions. The aforementioned Matt is so great you can (almost) forget he’s a Kings fan! Regardless, here is the link for the Convention photos … old and soon to be new as well! Hawks convention photos

Speaking of hockey … did I mention that it was exciting watching the Cup won on home ice?!? Cause it was!!

Cat vs lynx

Thanks to one of my nieces  … I spotted this link of a homeless kitty wandering into the cage of a lynx in a Russian zoo. The outcome was not what you would expect!
