Who’s dis bloke?

I’m Ron, a good-natured guy who’s happily married for more than three decades to a very special woman I call the Bos Lady. June 28 will mark 32 years — where indeed does the time go?

We have one happily married daughter, Kristen. She is married to Jason, and they have given us a wonderful granddaughter named Jamie and a cool-as-cucumber grandson, Matthew.

Our middle child, Brad, is married to a lovely young lady named Amanda, and they have a beautiful daughter: Katelynn.

Our youngest, Kevin, invariably keeps us laughing and is probably the funniest person we know. Kevin moved out not so long ago, leaving us as Empty Nesters.We didn’t know whether to laugh or cry at that milestone…

I’m a fan of the Edmonton Oilers and the Minnesota Vikings. Post-season celebrations have been few and far between in the past 10 years or so, but it looks like things are changing for the better for both franchises. And each team boasts an incredible new place to play: Roger’s Arena, the jewel in Edmonton’s new Ice District; and US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

River City, Alberta, Canada — Edmonton — is my hometown. Like any place, it’s got its highlights and it’s got its warts. RiverCityAlberta, the blog, was conceived to give readers a taste of my city, but it’s grown into a broader existence of posts beyond River City.

I hope you find your time well spent here. Thanks for visiting!
