Won­der­ful re­turn to Euroa


Glenice Kubeil,Euroa

YOU can take the girl out of the coun­try but you can’t take the coun­try out of the girl (or should I say the older lady).

On Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 19 I rose early and caught the V/Line train to Euroa. I was waited on like a Queen. Couldn’t find any fault with any­thing. Even my break­fast was brought to me. I had come a day early as I was at­tend­ing the funeral of a beau­ti­ful 96 year old lady.

I shouldn’t say funeral as it was a joy­ful cel­e­bra­tion of a long life well lived.

There were many happy re­unions at the Flour Mill and Janet sur­passed her­self with her usual beau­ti­ful food.

When I ar­rived at Euroa, my friend Leanne was wait­ing to take me wher­ever. As usual Euroa was at ‘her best’. Gar­dens full of roses and ev­ery flower imag­in­able. Progress along the street was very slow. Lots of hugs and kisses (sore ribs but a happy heart).

I should have left years ago and had lots of re­turn trips. We left my bag­gage at the Jolly Swagman. What a lovely place to stay. When I come back for my hol­i­days I have a home like place to stay. They even have a beau­ti­ful old dog. After my fam­ily, dos, gar­den­ing and friends are my life. There was so much to see. New shops, new chemist, Lor­raine’s lovely gift shop and many many more things.

After Leanne left to help at the show grounds, Lyn took charge of me.

In the evening, din­ner was at the Euroa Ho­tel.

Great food and my friend Neville from the post of­fice was there.

I will have to come back and stay a few days at the Jolly Swagman for a hol­i­day in the au­tumn. I don’t think that will be long enough. Also the Euroa Show next year. I haven’t been there since Ker­rie and Robyn grew up.

After help­ing with the an­i­mal nurs­ery and get­ting ev­ery­thing there, I needed a break. Some break. Robyn is now 52 and Ker­rie is 48. Both with grown up kids ex­cept for beau­ti­ful Wil­liam Yan­der Ryan, who won’t an­swer to any­thing other than Billy.

Friends who I didn’t get to see, I’ll catch up next time when I come on hol­i­days.
