The CHAFF meeting today had a few new faces. The food was great.
Finns Jukka Kokko and Tero Haaraniemi with his Thai wife "Monday-cats", plus Ashesh Kumar's wife, Indu and their 3 year old son, Karthik, were our new attendees.
Benjamin (Australia), Kasia (Poland), Ashesh (India), Tony (Finland) and Lauri (Finland) were also in attendance with Unnop, Pailin, Soda, Yut (all Thai) and myself. Tero was late and hence missed all of us!
Next week we will have some new attendees. The meeting on Sunday 4th February 2007 will start at the Pailin Restaurant, Kenttätie 9, Kasarmi Area, at 13:00 hours.
It was 40 years ago that in a small but picturesque town of Shrewsbury in Shropshire, England, that we were joined together in "Holy Matrimony".
Today we celebrated our 40th Wedding Anniversary. Pailin and Unnop carved us a beautiful honey melon.
We received greetings from all corners of the globe which made us feel so humbled that so many of you remembered us on this very auspicious day.
Next target - our 50 years anniversary.
I refer you to my tribute to my dearest girlfriend, wife, mother of our children and a great grandmother of our grandchildren, which I created for her 60th birthday.
