Morning Free Association: Easy Breezy Monday

Let’s re-enter this week nice and easy. There is plenty of time to talk about the unpleasantness of future contracts.

Chris Wagner got hitched this weekend. Last fall, he asked his girlfriend to marry him and now they are husband and wife.

I am not privy to the guest list but I can tell you that at least one current and one former Bruin was there. Charlie McAvoy took some video of the occasion and happened to get an inebriated Torey Krug in his shot. It’s a wedding so this is totally appropriate (and funny). It seems that Krug did not shy away from this either. Since it was in an Instagram story, the short video is gone on IG but captured forever thanks to the good ol’ obsessed peeps on Tumblr.

And because I like to know what the marital status of every Bruin on this current team, I missed the announcement that Taylor Hall is now engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Rachel.

So many marriages happening!

Yesterday, I made applesauce from a tree across the street and black cherry syrup (cherry trees up the road) for the pancakes Jo is making right fucking now!!!

When I was in high school, the town we lived in used to have an ‘Apple Festival’ each autumn. My father was in the local Rotary club and one of those guys would bring a manual (wood & cast iron) applesauce press to make fresh sauce for festival goers.
I manned the booth one afternoon – yellowjackets would descend on the fruity odor en masse. It’s surprising how quickly one becomes casual about disposing of the little mofos.

Was trying to check out the weather channel to see local forecast and hurricane Ida updates.

It’s so frustrating waiting to see the hurricane map at a scale that is large enough to recognize scale & landmarks. I’ve got co-workers in the storm path and am trying to get a gauge on how fucked they are or if they might be available today or whatever.
Also weird – getting updates on power outages by customer count. Mississippi is a small state – is 100k customers half the state? 1/5th? Louisiana mapped outages by county – but color-coded by # of customers
Seriously, the county containing New Orleans is MUCH bigger than the swamp counties elsewhere on the delta. Can’t compare the numbers. Gimme the percentages, or at least color-code by %.

All the online weather channels have become Cumbersome to the digital world. How many clicks can we get from the average numb skull who uses the internet. See, I am not your average numb skull!

weather.com is all but unusable.

I recently went back to Accuweather. They have ads, but you can use their radar page full screen and avoid most of them!

Morning all.

I saw Charlie’s video. I like instagram but I dont like that stories disappear after a day. What’s the point of that?!

We can finally leave the house! Leah’s quarantine is over. Been out for breakfast this morning with our family friend to celebrate.

Good morning!
Mixed result weekend… Plenty of boating, including Saturday with an old friend. However, Monroe lost Art. Sort of a unofficial mayor in town, great guy who welcomed us from day one and helped us out often..
Bruins getting married, nice… But does that mean that our team is getting old?

Oh, sorry to hear that. You introduced us to ‘the mayor’ one time on a Zoom chat. Was that the guy?

So sorry to hear. Always hard to lose someone like that in a small town.

Art could tell you some stories! You might not even want to hear them (again), but I’d pay whatever to hear him tell one again.
