Hi Rocky,

How are things? I hope you and yours are all enjoying life to the fullest. And I am absolutely sure you are!

Please update my email address to atlarge@canada.com. And my nutshell update would be: After two years of law school at UBC, even though Vancouver/Kitsilano was great, Michelle and I got tired of the "imposed restriction" lifestyle of commuting between Calgary and Vancouver. So I'm back in cowboy country, doing third year at U of C. Liking it a lot, but there's something strange: I haven't pitted out in a single class. Loved my summer job with the federal Department of Justice, Aboriginal Law Group, in the Vancouver office. And looking forward to my articles with Attorney General of Alberta, starting next July. Stepkids are all out making their own way in life, and life for Michelle and me sometimes seems just too f***ing good to be real. I hope all the buds feel the same.

Hey Rocky,
I hope this e-mail finds you in good health and spirits.  It was great seeing you at last year's OMM ceremony.  Have you had to purchase any new ties since then (ha,ha)??
Since we last spoke, a lot of things have happened in Janet's and my life.  In Aug 2002, we got married here in Ottawa and shortly thereafter (Oct 02), I retired from the CF at the rank of Commodore.  My last position was as the Director General Military Human Resources Policy and Planning.  Dan Murphy has since replaced me in that position.
Since that time, I have been working for my friend's small communications firm here in Ottawa and, Janet & I moved to a beautiful community in Chelsea, Quebec.  Life must have been getting too routine, because we have decided to totally disrupt our lives by moving to Versailles, France for a 3-5 year timeframe.  I will be working for a NATO agency that manages the Central European Fuel Pipeline. We will be moving over towards mid-Nov 03 and I will begin the new job on 1 Dec 03.  We are both very excited at this new opportunity and are looking forward to immersing ourselves into the French culture.
It goes without saying that any buds passing via Paris are strongly encouraged to look us up.  Whether it is just for a glass of wine, a meal or a stayover for a couple of weeks, our door will always be open.
Once we get settled in to our apartment, I will e-mail you our coordinates so that people can get in touch with us.
Great work on the web-page,
