The cats of my household are endlessly fascinated by the raccoons that make occasional appearances on the back porch. Thankfully, their only interactions are through panes of glass. The cats don't quite seem to understand that raccoons are lawless brigands who will cut you given half a chance.

Just a friendly reminder, should you be considering giving the gift of feep this holiday season, that shipping times slow down at this time of year due to the general volume of mail being handled by the dear ol' USPS, so it's best to get your orders in soon to ensure a timely arrival. Head this way for your feeply needs:

Viewed from Fort Tryon Park, it is the very bridge that takes one (and one's feeps) out of New York and into New Jersey, en route to Newark Airport, not but a couple of hours after this photo was taken. Adieu!

What to think about a door that is simply labeled "known point," and then tightly shut? One has to assume that, along with transporting the stones and artifacts of European cloisters to New York, they also inadvertently transported a few of the resident ghosts or demons. You know, the sorts of things that can't be destroyed, but have to be sealed with wards behind thick doors, and are spoken of only in hushed whispers for centuries. Oopsie!

A portcullis only really works, of course, if your average horde can't fit through the openings. Prepare to be overrun by tiny monsters, o Cloisters.

Nestled within Fort Tryon Park is a collection of buildings known as The Cloisters, a mashup of several medieval buildings imported from Europe by one of New York's eccentric rich people (one John D. Rockefeller, Jr., perhaps you've heard of him). There's a museum inside, but sadly we were there on a Monday and the museum is closed Mondays, so we had to content ourselves with wandering around the outside.

The next several photos are of our intrepid little Coil Horn Cyclops friend running around Fort Tryon Park in upper Manhattan. It's an impressive landscape of quiet greenery in a city known mostly for its buildings and its bustle.

This grate protects a public utility building in a section of Manhattan that was clearly built up in the 1920s. All the buildings around there have this kind of style. Makes one feel a bit as though one is walking through a certain Fritz Lang film.

It is, according to the posted information, the largest mausoleum in the United States. We got there right as it was closing, so only had but a moment to peek inside. It was rather interesting to contrast Grant's Tomb with the mausoleums in Mt. Auburn Cemetery (where we had just been), and which until now had seemed impressively elaborate and ornate.
No, for this you gotta be more than just rich.

That's the Riverside Cathedral peeking through in the background. I don't know who this statue represents. It was cordoned off with caution tape, and a sign alerted one of an apparently vicious wasp nest. So the feeps and I observed from afar.

Let us bid adieu to Salem (though there are yet more photos for future editions of Road Feeps Redux) with this parting shot of an old building in the harbor area. Next up: New York!

This was part of a display along the pier area of downtown Salem. I'm honestly not sure what this thing is (the horn, I mean, not the monster). I could have read the informational sign that was there next to it, but obviously I didn't, so now I must suffer in ignorance.

And now, back to the feep bat's tour of Mount Auburn Cemetery. The place was founded in 1831, so the monuments are newer than the ones the feeps were looking at in Salem, but the ones at Mt. Auburn frequently tend toward the elaborate and ornate.

I don't think this urn-like thing is an actual urn, just decoration for a monument. But I got distracted by some ducks in the pond and didn't read the inscription on the nearby obelisk, so perhaps it is an urn after all.

I am back from New York Comic Con and the wilds of the northeast, and I have a ton of pictures to prove it. I'm still sorting through them all, but since we're in the run-up to Halloween I figured I should go ahead and start posting some of the pictures I took in some of the very picturesque cemeteries in Salem and Boston. Let us begin with Salem, shall we?

For those of you who actually read the texty bits of this blog, my sprained hand is doing much better. Yesterday I engaged in my first round of feepmaking since the injury. The purpose was to get some stock together for New York Comic Con next weekend, where you will find the feeps ensconced at the Prism Comics booth.
I don't have pictures of the new feeps yet, but my plan for next week is to take lots of pictures of them around New York and Boston, so when I return I'll have some fresh new Road Feeps pix to share with you.
So! If you're in NYC next weekend (Oct 13-16), do come to the show. Otherwise, see you here online when I get back.

Just checking in to let you know that ArmadilloCon is this weekend, and I'll be there with my table o' feeps.
My hand is, unfortunately, still hurt. I sprained it pretty badly, and since it's my dominant hand it's very difficult to avoid using it altogether. Sprains take an annoyingly long time to heal, so it could be a few weeks before I'm back to normal. So I figured I'd take this opportunity to post a get well card I made a few years ago.
