To my best friend & love of my life, Colby My heart is shattered. The amount of physical, mental, and emotional pain I am in when I think about never seeing, touching, or holding you again is unbearable. You are and will always be my person, my hero, the greatest thing to happen to me. I never dreamed of being a widow before our first wedding anniversary. Although, every cell in my body is lost without you, I promise to continue to make you proud. You were the best friend, husband, doggy daddy, and oh how I wished to see you as a baby daddy. I’ll see you again soon, Colb. You’ll be in heaven meeting me with a warm wet kiss. You’ll be with me every step of the way. I don’t want to stop writing just like I didn’t want to stop holding you this morning at the hospital. You are my everything. You always will be. Thank you for now being the best Guardian Angel. Just as you ended your vows, I am going to end with one word, AGAPE. ✨

Many organizations, including the Bruins, and players released statements about Cave after his passing.

Colby Cave scored his first NHL goal with the Boston Bruins back in 2018.

Life is just too short and unfair.

Your Richard E. Grant Fact of the Day:

Grant did not get along well with the producer of his semi-autobiographical film, Wah-Wah!.
Marie-Castille Mention-Schaarwas somewhat inexperienced at the time, having only been a producer since 2003 (Wah Wah was a 2005 film).
Grant called the writer-producer relationship “disastrous” and stated that she was “a control-freak out of control”. He stated that she rarely showed up on set, and only sent 5 emails during the film’s pre-production phase. In a published set of Grant’s diaries about the filming, “The Wah-Wah Diaries: The making of a film“, she is portrayed as “a sullen and tight-fisted woman who antagonises everyone”. She failed to license the use rights for songs in the film, and failed to acquire permits to shoot the film in Eswatini. The latter infraction required Grant to seek an audience with King Mswati III of Eswatini to beg for clemency.
Grant vowed to never work with her again.

When asked if Mention-Schaarwas has contacted him to get “her slice of the action” he noted that she’d been hoist by her own petard, as she had arranged the rights such that she would only earn money from a release in France, and the film was never released there.
He seemed delighted by this fact.

Sounds like she’s just as bad at being a control freak as she was at being a producer!

That was pretty sad news, hearing about Colby Cave. It looks like he made a lot of friends while he was a Bruin. One sometimes forgets that other stuff is still going on in spite of the stuff that trickles down from the epidemic.

Also, I was trying to figure out why you all in sepia tone during our Saturday video chats and then I remembered my laptop is set to night shade in the evenings! lol

Morning all Had a dream I lived on a beach. I didn’t want to wake up. (Except for the waves coming through the bathroom window. A house on the beach during high tide is not very practical.)

Morning all.

Very sad news. Yet another reminder to never take anything for granted. Every day is a gift.

Managed to find a use for the unusual veg we received – drown it in a cheese sauce I found a very good recipe for (then bake it). Also Leah made us a lovely rhubarb and Strawberry crumble – so good she’s doing an encore performance today!

I love strawberry / rhubarb anything!!! When i was a kid, we would drive to see the “rhubarb lady”. She had a farm stand. One couldn’t find strawberries in the spring back then so we would have stewed rhubarb with lots of sugar. Yummy!
BTW, what was this strange veggie… I missed that.

When I was a kid my nan used to grow rhubarb – I remember eating it dipped in sugar. Raw I think.

We bought an unspecified veg box from a local farm. As well as the rhubarb there was a huge celeriac, asparagus, cauliflower, some other stuff. Not that strange really, but not stuff we usually buy.

Best way to cook any vegetable is to drown it in cheese! Also, that crumble sounds wonderful, go Leah!

Hi Pals!
It’s so sad – the passing of Colby Cave. The virus will pass, but there will always be human tragedy. It has to be that way, i guess. It’s still awful seeing someone so young, with so much left to accomplish, die prematurely.
I always start Monday with some Motown music. It gets me going….. now, if i just had somewhere to go!
Replacement lights for my Tacoma ( ma-ma-ma-my Tacoma) arrived Saturday!!! Once i figure out the mounting of the license plate lights, i can get my bumper powder coated. (I made a custom bumper that stores compressed air, as it is made of square tube. It can get you out of a jam once in awhile.) Getting close!!

Speaking of automobiles, I was out on my “pretend to walk to work” walk this morning and it appears someone got in a fight with the ditch. There was a some bumper, a tire, and a hub cab on the side of the road and dirt and grass on the road.
