Mo and John at Convention Inn

We have a combined 90 YEARS working in the Hospitality Industry! John has worked 47 years, I've worked 43 years.

We met when in our 20’s, when we both worked at Convention Inn Hotel (now Delta Edmonton South), Edmonton, Alberta

We bought The Northern Lights Motel when we were 40 years old. (We wanted to be our own Boss, and move closer to family.)

Now we are in our 60’s, and looking to RETIRE! 👵🏻🧓🏻

Time for Blackjack! Bay Mills Casino 2018

Hospitality is our passion, but so is Blackjack! We’ve been playing together for 35 years. We’ve driven through 46 States & 9 Provinces collecting chips.  (Some chips were free, and some cost a fortune. lol) Gambled in approximately 250 Casinos.

We were open Year Round in the early 2000’s. My dear Mom & Dad would take care of the Motel for us and we’d get to drive all over the continent and add to our collection! Thank you Mom & Dad!

I’ve designed this website for 21 YEARS. 😯 Posted a million photos & stories. But now photos from all those years are on Facebook (Not on the website.)

Here’s some random pics, cartoons & “stuff”

It’s been a crazy fun life! You can follow us on Facebook to see what we are up to.
