While in Calgary, I stayed at my brother’s home. I also saw three old high school classmates, Steve, Louise, and Melanie. It was great to see them after so many years. I even cooked jambalaya for Louise and Melanie for dinner. My brother cooked a great turkey dinner one night as he entertained a few friends before he departed for Palm Springs for the fall.

I also hooked up with a cousin and a few of his oil patch friends for dinner. I did three interviews and have at least one more lined up for later.

My visit to Cow Town was much less turbulent than the last time. On that occasion, I was on my way to the airport to fly home from a visit with my brother when some weird news reporting came across the airwaves in the car. It was September 11, 2001. Needless to say, I did not get home that day.

Calgary is a vibrant city, but the day I left and got away from the prairie driving that had accompanied me since entering North Dakota on my way from Minneapolis to Winnipeg is what I will remember most. The mountains provided a welcome relief.
