Morning Free Association: Urho Gives a Lesson

Guys, it’s been quite a few days of painting, tiring of painting, moving stuff around, and realizing that we still have touchups to do. Not to mention that we have to let the paint cure a little bit before moving everything back into place. So, with all of that, let’s keep this quick and simple. The Bruins Twitter handler managed to get Bruins defensive prospect Urho Vaakanainen to give us a Finnish lesson.

I’m glad to hear him say his name because I now know that his first name is pronounced a little more like the German “Ur” combo than how I was saying it. And I love the cadence of Finnish speakers. It peppers the language with meter while saying something simple like “Thank you fans” or “Pekka Rinne”.

Working outdoors is one of the few benefits of my job. Great day for it. There is a drone photographer here to video the property. It will be listed soon!

It’s one of those beautiful New England days where you can start the day in long johns and a hoodie, get to shorts and a t shirt, then get back to long pants and hoodie before the day ends.

Hi all.

Ah, the Finnish language. It has similarities with Hungarian, so I believe, and neither has anything in common with the languages spoken in neighbouring countries.

GH & IW – Good news that you have a date for Boomer’s arrival. Or is it Buster? It’s a Boom or Bust situation!

Yesterday’s bbq began with cremating a couple of jackfruit burgers and fighting with some suicidal chipolatas determined to throw themselves through the grill and directly onto the coals. Redeemed myself with some spectacular chicken drumsticks though!

Morning all. I wish I had a deck so I could set up an outside office. So nice!

Hmmm…. *says the guy hiding in a storage room in a basement*
I’ve had bad luck in the past with using the deck though. It’s really hard to find an angle where I can read the screen of the laptop when the sun is out.

Perhaps the shade of the pergola will help.

Good Morning!
Urho!!! I love how deep the Bruin D corps is right now. Sinden always built the team from the goal out and Sweenius seems to have a similar mindset. Despite how much the game has changed, it’s still D first. Lauzon, Vaakanainen, Zboril.. Solid.
Spent the afternoon surfing at my favorite wave yesterday. The wave changes with the river level so there’s always an adjustment to make. Once you figure it out, woo hoo! Today will be more mundane.
In keeping with relaxing restrictions gradually, I had Jo pick me up a half pint of bourbon for this weekend. grin

And cups are important for the consumption of bourbon!

It’s the circle of life!
