Peters' Drive-In

Stephen Fitzpatrick first introduced me to the famous Peters' Drive-In in Calgary way back in the mid-80s, the first time we attended the Con-Version science fiction convention. I love a good burger, and Peters' delivers. I made the mistake of ordering the large fries, which of course can feed a family of four with leftovers. Never again!

Pictured above, though, are my friends Jeff and Susan, seen here at Peters' sometime in the 1990s. I'm not sure what we were doing in Calgary, as the other photos on the same strip of negatives don't offer any contextual clues. Such are the hazards of visiting the archives! Hopefully I scrawled an explanatory note on the back of the print, as is my custom.

Sylvia and I will be in Calgary tomorrow to attend Politics Reimagined, the 2011 Alberta Liberal convention and annual general meeting. Maybe I'll see some of you there!

Earl, I recall going to Calgary with you to attend a Star Trek convention once. Would this be the occaision? I don't remember the year, but I do recall that there was a guy dressed up as a horta on the dance floor.

Sadly, I couldn't afford to go to that convention, if you're talking about the one you guys went to during university. I wish I'd been there!
