A quick update from Sweden. Have gotten my act together and managed to find some some flights to get to Sydney
town in time for the reunion. Needless to say I have to risk
life and limb to fly Air Egypt or Garuda etc via Atens, Cairo, Jakarta etc etc. Am still trying
to get leave from the company (compassion for my old dying mother). Will send my
confirmation and credit card info for the event. Have also just gotten time to look at the
Website and some of the Bio-Blow from old old frieds like Alan Johnson, Paddy Dawson,
even Ross Nicoll and Barry Siverton ( We all played that game for pussies called basketball)
For your info and AL J's, I think 2 of the 3 guys in the car trunk are Paul Hohnen and John
Harkness (also had the misfortune to become a Chartered Accountant like Bill Scott and
myself). If you check with John I guess we can identify the third.
Ps my only regret is that after all the hullabaloo, I must confess that, at first I couldn't place
this teacher Jeanette Spies. I unfortunately never had Jeanette S´pies for anything´(she was that
gorgeous French teacher all the guys masturbated over no?). Oddly enough the name is Danish
and in Sweden is famous (the founder of a travel agent company who then romped off with a
Swedish model called Jannie). My French is now superb (compared to what it was then) after 5
years of romantic adventure in Quebec and a half-house in France, so I look forward to catching
up on my lecons.
Was also greatly distressed to see Robin Winkler and Murray Sime listed as deceased. Does
anyone have any details? Chris Tennant was with Robin W a lot? Who knew Murray Sime well?
John Ball became a Dentist. He was in my class and as I recall, lived at Northbridge. He was well
off even then. Any k-news. As for that old shag artist a & dope smoker Paddy Dawson, I was
how his Clarinette is ?? Do you all remember that musical "review" at end of year. Paddy was
also making kids at 48, unbelievable!!
