Pass And Score

Here’s a cheer up composition for all unconditional fans, me first. As I write this there are still over 16 hours of wait before the first game between the Flyers and Boston. Good Luck Flyers !!!

Image Explanation On the left side the players is Arron Asham #45, he’s trying to pass trough Bryce Salvador #24 in game five against New Jersey. Take note of Arron Asham’s flexing hockey stick, nice image. (Original photo by Jim McIsaac/Getty Images) On the right side its Brian Boucher #33 looking at the center timer screen during a timeout, again in game five against New Jersey. (Original photo by Andy Marlin/NHLI via Getty Images) On the far right, that’s Rocky’s statue, strong icon of Philadelphia and I personally take it as a symbol of determination. In the middle I inserted the Liberty Bell, the reason is that I found amusing changing some letters and make it more for the occasion. On the original picture the inscription on the Bell reads Pass And Stow, I changed it to Pass And Score. ;) The rest of the image do not need an explanation…

Rihanna in Barbados

Here is another picture that was lost in my desktop folders, the women we see in this picture is the famous singer Rihanna, she sold over twelve million albums in only about 4 years, that is a huge success and lots of money to spend. LOL I have this image in a much larger size and I can see her face very well, she is so cute, I love those multi-mixed genetic features she has, a bit of this, a bit of that and remixed again with this and that… LOL By the way I pixelated the little girl’s face because she is under age and for respect to a very far family member that we never met. That little girl is part of my wife’s step father’s family, seen in the background. Rihanna is from Barbados and my wife’s mother and her family was in Barbados last year in vacation when they snapped this picture with Rihanna, lucky them… for have visited Barbados that is. :)

Goodbye Bernard Pépin

Like all weekends our family gets busy, however usually they are not sad like it started this weekend. Well, in a way I knew it was coming. You see, since the beginning of 2009 it’s the third person I know that passes away, and last week the 30th of Mai, a former co-worker died at the young age of 46. He felt sick on Friday, he felt a bit of numbness on his left leg and hand, he decided to sleep over it, he never woke up, R.I.P. He was always cheerful and funny, always in time and no matter what age the person was he treated him or her the same way, with respect. Even if I don’t have all the experience in the construction world, he made me feel at ease and never said no to a good teaching session, he had lots of experience and I learned a lot with him. He was what we call here in French a “Charpentier”, a Carpenter. He loved what he did, he left his native region of Beauce to come to Montreal at the age of 20 with only 200 dollars in his pocket and his Trans Am, his wish was to work in construction as a carpenter, he got what he came for. I got to know him when I stared to work for the same company only about 1 year ago, but I heard of him years before that. My wife is project manager for the construction company he worked for. Because of this I got to know a great guy, so much that I still refuse to believe he is gone, I still want to talk to him… I spent over 8 hours a day for months, working, talking, having fun, thinking, getting hurt, bitching about the boss and what else happens on a crazy construction site. On Saturday’s often my wife use to bring one of the kids at the job site, so he got to know all my kids very well too. We also spent a few times together outside the job. In all he became known and appreciated by our family. Indeed appreciated by everyone, I never seen so much people for a funeral. It shows he was a star… Bernard, we will miss you so much… In Memory Of Bernard Pépin Un Beauceron Qui A Du Coeur (Best Jarret Noir ever…).
