  1. Ahh point. I wish I had more time to canoe. I’ve got my dad’s big broad Old Time Pathfinder. I use it once or twice a year. Afraid the sail boat will displace even that teeny amount of time I have with her. 
    I grabbed my dads old fishing lures Mr Anal kept them in their original boxes so some are actually worth a little.  I want to frame them in a shadow box frame or in a curio table. I played with them so much  as a kid. Damm I always poked my fingers to death - never fail. It’s like I couldn’t leave them alone - they looked like toys. Anyhow. Hope all is well with Devils fans the word over.

  2. Haven’t written in here in a while. 
    went back to Scotland- loved it.  

    Went to Pointer Trial and Isaac Newton our puppy did his first puppy run. All the pup needs to do is show enthusiasm. Well Newt enthused himself into disqualification.  Everyone thought the judge was a dyck.

    Mostly busy getting the boat back on the water. Not there yet.

  3. Well… I’m watching the dog show. Pointer took 3rd in the Sporting Group. And Oh my gosh. Cutest Great Dane ever. Jumped up on his tiny handler just now — So cute!!  Anyhow so the Pointers a Jerzy girl. Well - part anyhow    Ok. I’m not focusing.  Bye!!  Devils will be grand next season - no worries.  Lindy Ruff is an ass I don’t trust he learned anything. Only Pat Burns was a lifetime learning coach like that so. Have a great Summer kids!

    I knew we were fvcked when they showed that ass crack Aaron Rogers in the crowd. He's been screwing my favourite teams for about twenty years.

    Yeah … I’m a Jets fan too so … he’s such an asshat.  I’m beside myself.  But he’s a nice scapegoat for tonight, so he’s served his East coast purpose for now —- wait but that means he’s a big fat fvcking moron science denting jinx.  ASSHAT. fvck)8:(&2)&/4@)27)28;  

  5. Hi Point!  I’m up in Raritan Bay. Debating keeping her on the Sound because that’s where I grew up - on the CT side.  But I really like our club. Everyone is so chill. and we can’t leave our dogs for too long going away every weekend.  
    We’re getting a beasty cruiser hopefully the middle of next month.  I’ll race on other peoples boats 😁

    I am in love however with Prudence the ketch. You can find her online. Met her captain at a local eatery and got talking about sailing and he’s thinking of selling.  We took her out and I just fell madly in love ❤️❤️ But she’s all wood.  We just don’t have the time or skill. That’s what I keep telling myself 😁. That’s what my dad sailed on Lake Huron back in the day. Not a ketch but everything was wood back then. Hence the Peacock rotting in his buddy’s backyard 😢

    Hope your son still finds time to sail! And you’re buddy was lucky!!! I think I’d be scared to really race!  I secretly want to do the Bermuda race one day.  Doubtful though.  

  6. I have a new obsession. Sailing. I love it!  It suits me so perfectly!!  We’ve been getting out about 3 times a week!!  Boat shopping now ❤️

    its a hobby with purpose, can involve team work, tons of little busy work with lots of crap you can screw around with. It’s so chock full of things to do and yet you also get to totally chill out in an idyllic natural setting.  

    yesterday I was heading to race night without a boat to race on and I felt just like I was going to a pickup hockey game  😁

  7. Stevens dream alert!  We were coworkers. We were shopping ina duty free shop at an airport. And I was that guy… the person who imitates everyone.  I kept on sneaking my Stevens imitation when he was on the other side of the shop. I was “Stevens, restocking shelves” and I’m not sure anyone thought it was funny or uncanny or wanted me to get busted because they kept asking me to do the imitation but didn’t really laugh or comment.  No idea why I didn’t want him to see. We were convivial coworkers   Hmm.  So that was that  

    we might have to move to the Deep South. I’d hate it.  I’d reeeally hate it. I hate new homes to start with and that’s all they have down there.  And not on the shore.  I love water. Rivers actually to be specific.  There’s not much where we’d be looking.  And all the women love my husband there 😁. Everyone thinks he looks like Mark Ruffallo. But tall.  I don’t think Mark Ruffallo is cute but apparently everyone else does.   I’ve watched women chase us down in a panic. Then they say oh!  I thought you were someone else.  Then they turn back as they’re walking away and they’re still all giddy and breathless and ask if anyone has ever told him he looks like Mark Ruffallo. “You really do .  I don’t do this  giggle giggle. You really do’

    apparently when I’m not there they cat call and ask him to hulk out and burst out of his shirt   He’s so not that guy I think it’s hilarious   He’s Bruce Banner-like scientist even  😂  luckily it doesn’t bug him    



  8. Happy belated birthday. I didn’t forget but thought of my great grandfather before Scott Stevens.  Ahhh sigh. I’m growing up at last?   Nah

    Our little solid pointer is now a Jr Hunter and passed her first of 4 qualifiers for Senior Hunter   The old farts are still here too  snoring and getting more disgusting by the month.  Emma is going to be 16 . She is totally deaf but still pretty fit and active   …. But so what?

    I do think about Scotland   I kind of want to live there   My husband would choose Somerset and charming places  he want to move to Dolverton  I want to move to Aberlour  it’s not even Scottish charming  I just really liked it  but Ithunk Is just want to hang out in the river all day  get a meat pie or sausage roll from the local butcher  or a fancy cold meat pie from the fancy grocer   Eat tunnocks tea cakes and humbugs   I never wanted to even try a humbug before  I’ve always been kind of a self loathing UK descendant until all of my childhood favorites could only be found in Canada or the UK   I had no idea how disgustingly UK I am   I took pride in being like Kevin Kline in A Fish Called Wanda well… again … so what. 😁.  Back to work!!!

    yay Scott Stevens.  Hope all is well with you and the family 😁

    There's something about our basement that causes forgetting. I go down for something, say a roll of
    paper towels, which we keep in a big box down there,
    and as soon as I get to the bottom of the stairs I have forgotten what I came down there for. It happens to
    my wife as well. So recently we have taken to working
    in tandem like spelunkers. One of us stands at the
    top of the stairs while the other descends. When the descendant has reached the bottom stair, the person
    at the top calls out, "Light bulbs, 60 watt." This
    usually works unless the one in the basement lingers
    too long. I blame this memory loss on all the stuff in
    the basement. Too much baggage: 10 shades of blue
    paint, because we could not get the right color, extra dishes, bicycles, the washer and dryer, a cider press, a piano, jars of screws, nails and bolts.... It boggles the mind. My wife blames it on radon.

    have to save this and know I’ll find it here hahahha

  10. We’re in Scotland!!   And fly fishing with a former Red Wing.  He retired in 1979 😁 he wasn’t there long. He’s from Sweden. Nice guy  so it’s sunny and chilly    But out of no where it’s snowing!  Like I feel like I’m skiing snowing.  I do love it here. We’re Speyside.

  11. Hi Bill. Good to read you 😁.  Life during COVId has been ridiculously busy. Major milestones left and right. 

    We’re in Puerto Rico right now and wouldn’t you know I had a Stevens dream which turned into an Elias dream which turned into my dad dispensing valuable advise!  

    I worked in some educational facility with Stevens but it wasn’t really hockey based. We were just getting to be friends and he offered me a ride home and I was thinking how awesome but that I’d better not make a habit of it or my husband would get the wrong idea. He pulled up in this flat sports car. But it was really flat.  And it wasn’t green it was kind of grass covered. And there were no doors. He was waiting for me to get in. Elias was in the back and I couldn’t figure out how they were fitting in. 

    then somehow we got to we’re we were going and Elias met my sister and acted like he was totally dazzled by her. I was thinking dude your married! (My sister IRL is also 62 and chubby but very pretty) Then this really cute young blonde came up furious and in tears because her boyfriend like an old fat lady and I was thinking - hey dame, what about his wife? But Patty came over and calmed her down saying she was just working for him see?  And my sister was waiting tables I saw. And then the girl really blew up saying “you gave her a role in your show!?!”  And then I realized my sister landed a staring role on a TV show as a waitress. Patty said but look at her … look how charming she is!”  And I was freaked out because he WAS in love with her. I said to a friend next to me “ wow. My sister is going to be fine. She doesn’t have to change a thing.”  Then next to her from a guy sitting down with a crowd of people listening to everything he said, said “yeah, but look what drinking did to me” in that unmistakable way my dad spoke. And it was my dad. 
    I said “Daddy!  It really is you!!! You can visit.” And he gave me a big hug and said “Oh yeah, I can go anywhere I want. Don’t worry about that. But you can’t do what I do!”

    Then I woke up. 😁

    so. I’ve got to cut back my drinking!!! During this holiday season from Thanksgiving through now it’s been just relentless partying with my husbands company. They have good cause that’s why it’s all kind of new and intense!  But it’s just too much.  Example:  (I’m no spring chicken now as you all know having had this Stevens thing going since 2001 🤪😂) I started out November at 137 lbs.  I am now 150!!!!!!!  My husband went from 200 to 225!!!!   Hahahahahahhahahah!   But it’s traumatic!  So. It’s been like a party every night and way too much good food and I have had like negative zero discipline eating crap I don’t even want and having that third drink!!!  So. I have to go back to my old lifestyle. No more of this “hey we need to cut loose a little”. Hahahaha. 

    because I never get here anymore I love my daughters current boyfriend although he’s in the acting program. Oy vey.  He thinks too much like I do. But it’s great because I can speak to him in my subtle way and he understands EVERYTHING!  I think it’s actor speak, I do. It’s a particular kind of intuition. You just know things and you know when someone else does too and you just instantly trust. Anyhow. But he’s not that swell. She can dump him any time she wants and I’ll be behind her 100%. 

    did you know sailing burns a lot of calories?  Just sayin.  

    so well, that’s all. My nephew is indeed a Lou Lamouriello dream but they’ve taken him off d and made him a forward and he’s getting the sh!t kicked out of him!  Out for the season with the broken collar bone. He’ll be Ivy League but he has no faith in being on a team. I keep telling him to not underestimate his intelligence.  

    oK. Enough.  Bye all!  Happy New Year!!!

  12. OK. I will say - when you go bonkers picking winning coaches willynilly - well. You kind of get a Rangers kind of thing going. You’re not building a foundation for ongoing consistency.   I’m torn. I can’t focus because all that runs through my mind is "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds“. 

    maybe what I’m trying to say is “fvck Tortarella”. And notice everyone started calling him the Fonz for a while. That was my husbands thing. No one said it before that. I swear someone stole so much of my material back in the day …

  13. OK. Scotty, I think it’s time we both admit it. I just have better overall hockey fan sense than you. 

    thanks to Lou for running the experiment for us. We’ve have the statistically relevant outcome.  Yes we both loved the Lamouriello Devils. Same location same system.   Perfection

    so - let’s test the geography. We’ll even give your chosen locale the advantage of age.  Lou goes to Toronto. Your childhood team.  Look what happens.  Then he moves to Long Island. My childhood team.  You see where I’m going here?   

    Toronto. The Leaves.  Stinko.  I’d just like you to publicly acknowledge it now. Pepperkorn is just a brilliant arm chair hockey aficionado . Not just because I happen to be her favorite player of all time.  Not just because she recognizes the brilliance of Lou Lamouriello. But her love of hockey was born in Minnesota her adoration of players in Long Island ( NOT Manhattan). And her formative years in Hamden Ct.  she’s been bred for it. Hockey fan perfection as I am hockey defence and leadership perfection. NB our flaws makes us perfect.

    there. There’s your script.  Now go!  Gogogogogogogogogo!!!!!

    It very possible that I do have trouble with sarcasm. Thank you. I am 85 years old. Spend 85% of my time in bed due to severe back problems. I can't have surgery because I wouldn't survive it. So I enjoy sports on TV, most everything but baseball. Thank you everyone for your interest in me.

    Have a nice day. Happy Fathers day to those of you that are fathers. To those that are not, get a pet. 

    Wait a sec... is that you?   GetReal?  I’ve think he’d be damm close to 90 if not already. I have been hoping he’s alive and well.  Or were you being funny?  

  15. My moms movers stole a ton of her jewelry. It’s not that valuable but it’s the principal.  They stole her Dundee Football Club gold pendant necklace. It was her current treasure. She’s not even a footy fan but she loved that necklace.  Man. Steal from at 85 year old. What knobs.  

    so, how are you Scotty?  What’s new? How’s the family?  Granddad yet?  Any weddings on the horizon? Any significant other you can’t stand but fear your kid is going to think s/he wants to marry?  Any monster children refusing to get out of the house?  Any monster children stomping out of the house making sure you think it’s to escape you?  Yeah.... me neither.  

    good lawrd.  I just wrote principal.  I’m illiterate. It’s that simple. Or I’ve been thinking about how much money we’ll have to play with once our house sells?   In any event I despair of myself
