Whilst the average marriage nowadays lasts way
under 10 years, some couples are fortunate enough to enjoy a far longer time
together. Last Sunday was the auspicious occasion of the 25th
wedding anniversary of Audrey and Jeremy Dootson, and the expat community
turned out in full force to celebrate with them, and wish them well. Audrey and
Jeremy set up a huge spread of heavenly food and more down-to-earth drinks in
the cozy gardens of their Pie Sabai home bakery, and the afternoon went by like
lightening. Congratulations again, Audrey and Jeremy, from all of us here at

very much appreciated by all, and the mood was simply great.
