    Some of our best evenings were spent listening to the three musketeers (the two Neils and Jimmy) along with their dear wives talk about old Calgary and their exploits growing up – or at least only the ones they thought were appropriate to share. I think there were many more.

    Jimmy thanks for giving me my first job in the onshore oil patch and helping me get set up in Calgary.
