Born in Winnipeg I moved with my family to Montreal when I was 13, making me a natural Montreal Canadians fan. In Montreal I met my wife, Espe, visiting from Mexico and attending English classes at a local college. I had traveled extensively through Mexico and Central America, and spoke some Spanish, so one thing led to another and we were married. That led to two fine daughters, Vanessa (1978) and Jennifer (1982). I’ve lived in PoCo since 1980, and have been gardening (or trying) for as long. I think I`m finally getting the hang of it.
