Invitation

Hi

I have the following sentence, which I am told means inviting a person to a place:

Entonces como anda Paris? Ahora quiero ver si puedo invitar a la vieja para que este un tiempito por aca...

However, what is the exact meaning in English? Is the person inviting a girl or a boy?

Thanks in advance.

Where are you or where is the person talking from?

The person who wrote the sentence is in Berlin, he writes to his friend who lives in Paris (which he visited earlier this year).

"Viejo(a)" might be a way of talking about one's parents.

- Le traje dulces a la vieja por su cumpleaños.
- El viejo me pidió que lo ayude a reparar su coche.
- Mi viejita tiene ochenta y ocho años.
- Mi viejo está fuerte como un roble.
