Morning Free Association: Marathon Monday

It’s Patriots Day the day on which 30,000 runners will compete against themselves and Heartbreak Hill to complete the 26.2 mile journey from Hopkinton, MA to Boylston St in the Back Bay. It’s a larger than normal field since it’s the first time the race has been run at this time of year since 2019.

This weekend the Boston Bruins finally clinched a playoff spot when they defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins in a huge manatee game on Saturday. Brandon Carlo wore the second “A” in his return from an undisclosed injury that removed him from the game against the Blues and kept him from the lineup on Thursday against the Senators.

Jeremy Swayman only let in one goal in a game in which the Bruins scored twice early and then never saw the back of the net again. Danton Heinen, who is no friend of the Bruins anymore, scored Pittsburgh’s lone goal.

Trent Frederic scored the first one and Erik Haula the game winner.

Don’t worry, Swayman got his hugs, one great one from Nick Foligno and the other from his buddy Linus.

The Bruins go on the road for a couple of games this week: on Tuesday they’ll be in St. Louis and Thursday in Pittsburgh.

Morning all. Had a productive weekend of bill paying, tax doing, laundry washing, and book reading. And finally tackled the tupperware drawer and recycled the 583 excess containers I did not need.

Also finally got around to watching The Eyes of Tammy Faye. Both Jessica Chastain and Andrew Garfield were fantastic.

Still working on closets and storage here…. every door one opens has tremendous potential for disaster!

In classic rural style, I am using two old cars as dry storage.

My apartment has minimal storage space. I’ve gotten good at the quick open and shut of the closet door to keep things from falling out! lol

I suppose organizing the closet should be the next rainy day project.

Good morning!
Yay! Playoff bound again. We’ve known for awhile, but clinching is good. Beating the ‘guins and only allowing one goal … great. More healthy players would be awesome.
Porch has been removed, holes dug for new concrete footing, and my body is completely destroyed. Will be taking it easy until the concrete gets here.
Did manage a short walk in the snow yesterday… Snow all day, two hours of heavy hail, no accumulation… That’s okay, we’re expecting 3-6″ tonight!
