No will, drive or energy. No desire, passion, or commitment. Listless and out of sorts.
I’m talking about me.
The Habs lost 2-0 to the New York Rangers at MSG.
Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians.
Merry Christmas and a terrific 2017 to you.
It might be your best year ever. You could win the lottery! You’ll probably come first in a ‘Best Looking’ contest! The Habs could go all the way! (Or if you’re not a Habs fan, your team will almost win!)
There could even be peace on earth!
(Okay, maybe I shouldn’t get too carried away with the peace on earth thing).
Lots of good things will happen. You just have to believe.
Love from Lucy, Lyla, and me.
Once again, for your possible reading enjoyment, some drawings from my grade two exercise book done at West Ward Public School in Orillia, and which I’ve managed to hold on to all these years.
Yes, some of you have seen some of this before, but I’ve added more this time, so that’s good right?
And as another added bonus, I include a photo of West Ward school in the process of burning to the ground in 1968.
But first things first, my art from grade two, lots of it, and which includes some Habs, a portrait of my teacher Mrs. Williams, along with Elvis Presley, which I spelled ‘Elive Prisie’.
If all this isn’t enticing, I don’t know what is.
I don’t have the energy, or interest, to be an advanced stats type of guy.
Or maybe I’m just not smart enough. You should’ve seen my math marks in high school.
But I’ve got the S.H.I.T.S., with an added bonus this year – shots on goal!
As you can see, it’s been a dandy start to the 2015-16 season for Les Canadiens. Although you already know that.
And, as an added bonus…..last year to compare! Wow!
And, as another added bonus…..2013-14, when Peter Budaj was helping out!
Don’t forget that the Canadiens begin their trouncing of the Tampa Bay Lightning at 6:00 pm ET today instead of the usual 7:00.
I’d hate for you to be out buying your beer and 4 Aces sherry and peyote buttons and miss the first period when the Canadiens storm the net and grab an early lead.
From legendary Canadian political cartoonist Duncan Macpherson, who also created the 1960s overhead image of the old Montreal Forum that proved very popular when I posted it a couple of times over the years, is his painting of jubilant Habs celebrating the Stanley Cup.
I know it’s Habs because the caption that comes with the picture says so, even though the sweaters are slightly different.
This is what we need to see this coming June.
And here’s what folks liked so much. So much so that I’ve had many inquiries about how to get a print of this and which, sadly, I have no idea.
Kicking off the 2015 Habs postseason with this wonderful video montage created by Toronto-based filmmaker Tim Thompson (although you’ve probably already seen it by now).
Thompson creates brilliant pieces for CBC/Hockey Night in Canada, and this Habs example goes directly to the top of the class.
It’s only an hour to game time. Feel the vibes.
