Been a very long time since I posted here, nice to see a few familiar faces still around the place.
I heard from my mother today that Mrs Maureen McDonald aka Mrs Green Shop to a gang us up in our secondary school days passed away. Doubly sad to hear that her husband Joe passed at the start of December.
I had very fond memories of both of them and they always had a great welcome when we went into the shop to get a daily supply of Jelly Beans. Maureen even came to our band's (we were called Blue Apple if anyone remembers) first ever gig in the Town Hall way back in '96 or '97 before we even knew how to play a note :) Joe used to love talking music with me when I'd go in and told me I should listen to more Glen Miller.
Thoughts are with their family - RIP.
