The Editor's Bit

My good friends Gregorio and Elisa took the plunge and got married last month. They held the wedding party in their back garden and I was there, along with a lot of familiar faces from the local music and bar scene. I took loads of photos, so it wasn’t easy picking the ones you can see on pages 20 & 21.

No Cover Competition again this month; it’s Paula (Café Remember) outside Molly Malone’s, where she won the prize for best costume at their Halloween Party last year. She knows it’s going to be a hard act to follow.

I collected Elly’s ashes from the crematorium last month and took her on a final pub crawl. Molly’s was just one of the bars we visited.

On Page Three, I mention that we used to have photos of scantily dressed barmaids in the Stun. Coincidentally, I saw Miranda for the first time in years and we went for a drink in the Magpie, where she reminded me that Elly plied her with vodka jelly before stripping off and becoming our first Stunner, 21 years ago.

That’s it from me, enjoy your Stun.
