catching up with an old friend ...

A friend of mine from way back in high school came back to Guam to visit family for about two weeks and we got a chance to meet up a couple of times, eat and catch up with each other and just hang out. It was really nice, as I hadn't seen her since like 1990 or something like that.

She still looks fabulous, even 19 years after she was a bombshell babe in high school, and giving birth to three very adorable children in that span. She credits pilates, so I guess Sass is onto something ... heh.

We had lunch for about an hour and a half the first time, just me and her, and then the next week, on New Year's Day, we got together for dinner with her husband at the Hilton, for their amazing buffet spread (German night, lotsa meat!).

G is one of the people I could always open up to and share pretty much everything; she has that quality about her. We've had some deep, interesting conversations over the years until we kind of drifted apart, as often happens once a friend gets married and starts having a career and kids and that whole shebang. And she was as open with me as I was with her ... I don't really have that level of closeness with any other people right now, outside of one.

Here's us at the hotel's outdoor Tree Bar (yes, there's a giant tree in the middle of the bar) ... ain't she purty? ... (click for the larger version).
