RIP Niki Lauda 

A legend. Self funded his entry into F1 by taking out loans because his banking elite family blackballed him with local sponsors. Went from last rights to 6 weeks later winning an F1 race still swaddled in bandages making a mockery of anyone that would call Tiger Wood's win this year "the biggest sports comeback ever". Also had his own airline which just makes him a cooler individual than he already was.

Key "finish fetish" artist Tony Delap.

Frank Lucas, you know, from American Gangster.

I knew Tony DeLap was struggling. We own some of his sculpture  and his gallery in Santa Fe advise us he would no longer be visiting.

R.I.P.

Dr. John (Malcolm John Rebennack Jr.)

Was about to post this

Such a unique sound, what a bummer.  My kids are young and a few years ago we had a family night and watched the Disney movie, The Princess and the Frog.  I’m not too into the whole genre but man, when I realized Dr. John was writing and singing songs in it, it brought it to another level. RIP.

Our cat, Tommy, today. He made it 17 years. That's a small hole in the heart that's hard to repair.

Sorry to hear.

Sorry for your loss.  Its always hard to lose a four legged family member.  Sounds like he had a good long life

A fishing trip last weekend with no news or internet meant I missed the passing of Roky Erickson, leader of The Thirteenth Floor Elevators on May 31 at 71.

RIP to him and Dr. John.

Rouge-Matawin. Fishing wasn't bad but the weather wasn't great. Cold and mostly wet. On the bright side there were no bugs. There are more in my backyard.

Lee Iacocca

The father of the Mustang. Really enjoyed his autobiography when I read it way back when.

He should have a major role in the film, Ford v Ferrari to be released this fall.
