It's that day of the week again when I visit a photo from my past. The reason for posting this particular photo started on Sunday at AQC. Bear with me while I tell you the story......it starts like this.....
I had won the Best in Australia award with 'Elenor Jean' and while I away from my stand at AQC on Sunday, Russell told me that Chris from the Victorian Quilters was wanting to speak with me. While there was a lull in the crowd (Sunday is the quietest of the 4 days), I headed off to find Chris up in the Quilt Display area. Chris & I then headed off around the quilts to try and find another quilter to talk to. While I stood by my quilt waiting for Chris, a woman approached me and asked if I was Linda White. I said 'yes' and straight away I knew who it was.....a friend from school that I hadn't seen in about 25 years. There Kerry was standing near my quilt, at the very same moment I had been waiting for Chris. I was so happy to see her and we embraced like old friends. I have fond memories of staying at Kerry's place as she lived on a dairy farm. Another fun memory was when her mum or dad drove us in to Warrnambool to see the first (and best) Star Wars movie at the Capitol Theatre.
Last week Barb, another school friend, had arranged for us all to go out for dinner together, but unfortunately things happened and I couldn't make it last night. I was disappointed but so happy that I bumped into Kerry and her husband Paddy on Sunday. So to honour old friendships, today's photo is of Kerry and I standing in the driveway at home in Timboon. I think we were about 16 or 17.
I don't think we have aged at all ;)
