The February BayLUG meeting had an “animals” contest theme, so I put this together the night before. Like the Xmas Ornaments I posted about a couple months ago, it’s basically an elongated Lowell sphere, with head and legs attached and an ice cream tail.
March 17th is St. Patrick’s Day, the day when just about everyone in the U.S. claims to be at least a little bit Irish, which means wearing green clothing and often imbibing copious amounts of beer with green food coloring added, especially when it falls on a weekend.

Just one more left!
Seriously LEGO Star Wars? A Christmas Tree droid???? Gosh.
City has a more conventional tree, and Friends brings us a gift to put under it.
Happy Solstice! Today is the shortest day and longest night of the year. Today in our LEGO Advent calendars we get a speaker and controls (Friends), a wrapped gift and a stocking (City), and a Y-Wing Fighter (Star Wars). The Star Wars one comes with tons of extra parts!
