Morning Free Association: Updates and Stuff

The Boston Bruins didn’t play yesterday (thankfully) but they did practice to get ready for tonight’s tilt at the Garden against the Washington Capitals. Yesterday the organization announced a whole bunch of schedule changes to make up for games that either were missed due to the Covid Holiday Special or games that had to be moved around due to Canadian provincial attendance rules. Since the players will not be going to the Olympics they have plenty of time to make up these games.

Ty Anderson has a breakdown of the rescheduling if you want to take a look.

Down in Washington, The US House of Representatives did a thing that we can all be happy about: the voted to award Willie O’Ree the Congressional Gold Medal.

Tonight’s game is on ESPN+ stateside. Nick Foligno could return tonight but will be a gametime decision. Linus Ullmark is scheduled to start.

Got out to a movie last night. Had stuff to do for work, but I work too many hours already. It was nice to see a slightly different part of the outside world for once.
Then we got home and the news show we left on TV (to keep the dog company) was going on about the latest stupid thing done by congress, and it brought me back down again.

Caps game – hmmm, don’t know what to expect. Figured that Carolina was a loss, so if you’re gonna crash & burn, it may as well be in a game you weren’t gonna win anyway. I hope the B’s have their mojo back tonight!

I wish next door would leave the TV on for their dog. It barks constantly when they’re not there. And I mean constantly.

What was the film? Any good?

Nugget doesn’t really care about the TV except for the one random time where she found the end credits to Star Trek: TNG to be the most fascinating thing in the world.

Boomer doesn’t need the stress of the news! How about some new age relaxation music?
Dogs do like some noise cancelling noise, tho

Morning all. Cute moment at the show last night: A friend sent us a video of her son trying to talk to my cohost through the speaker.

Morning all,

Hopefully the real Bruins can show up tonight. Is it only ten days since that last Bs/Caps game? Feels like ages ago.

Heartbreaking 7-6 loss for the darts team last night. We never trailed in the match until the final dart was thrown. Absolutely gutted. Ah well, it’s only a game!

Currently listening to Elvis Costello’s new album. Didn’t even know he had one out! It’s pretty good.

Snatched defeat from the jaws of victory, eh? Ah well, there’s always next week!

We’ll have to check out the new Elvis Costello..

D’oh! On the flip side, there’s a guy in London telling his friends about how his darts team pulled out a dramatic win with the final dart! lol

Good morning!
Bruins\Caps tonight. Always a tough game. Hopefully the boys are ready to rebound. The Caps are mostly trying to set up Ovie all night. The goal scoring record is all that matters to that team…. That and playing acting like assholes seems to be their raison d’etre. Score goals, stay out of penalty box. Nuff said.
Planning on a lazy day. Not much planning needed, as it happens.

Okay, the cottage next door, the one we rented while we worked on ours, it’s been a busy air b&b…. Owners needed snow removal, etc. They hired a fella a few doors down. After a couple snow falls, they grew angry about snow removal prices. Owner comes to me and says “Will you do the snow? Shane doesn’t want to do it”. Well, really she fired Shane and thought I would do it cheaper. After comparing notes with Shane, I turned the job down. The owners have more money than God, but won’t pay a decent wage. Anyway, they are so mad they put the cottage on the market…. FOR 3 TIMES what they paid for it. WTF?

They paid $55K, fluffed and buffed, now want $170K….?????

It crazy what people are selling (and what people are paying) for houses right now! And I’m lucky my landlord decided I’m the best ever and should make sure I am a long term tenant because there’s now way I could find an apartment right now. Absolutely nothing available!

And don’t get SatanMother started on Air B&B’s. There’s one in her neighborhood that’s causing some strife. Apparently the main issue is he’s listing it as 13 person occupancy when it should only be listed as a 6 person occupancy.

The renters haven’t been a problem, but in a town of this size we need residents. Especially young folks who want to get involved .

If that was in London you could add another zero!
