Pub news.

As you are aware, I recently took up residence in the Hollybush after the demise of the Merrie Monk. I have used the Hollybush for years, and, in 2007 posted a blog from my youth, The photos are from 1983 (I was 21!).

This has been prompted by a request from an old friend of mine who came in last week with her husband. We reminisced about the old times, and she mentioned that they hadn't seen the photos. So, Marion, here they are!

Mark "cockeye" Conway. Don't ask!

Johnnie, Charlie and Cockeye.

Me and Marion.

Roger, Marion's then boyfriend, sadly no longer with us.

Marion, me, Paul and, ??

Me,(being an idiot) and Nikki(Charlie's girlfriend).

I hope you enjoyed this blast from the past!

I'm a straight male of nearly 60 years old, but I could easily fancy your mate Mark Conway!
