Eileen’s in town!

High school friend, Eileen Nery, from Sydney is in town for Christmas with the whole brood! We last saw each other…hmm…some 27 years ago!!! We picked them up at their downtown hotel on Boxing Day evening; drove to Marvin’s in Brampton where we met up with other high school batchmates. Eileen is her usual gregarious self – exactly as I remember her from our high school days. Hubby, Ron, entertained us with some Aussie slang while their 3 well-behaved, good-looking boys (James, Jacob and Joel) busied themselves in Marvin’s basement while we reminisced about our high school days. Their only girl, Jazmine, who is 5, is adorably precocious and tireless! One evening isn’t enough to catch up on 27 years. Sadly, we ended our brief reunion at 3:30 a.m. and drove them back to their hotel and said our goodbyes. I enjoyed seeing you again, Eileen…’til we meet again…
