One Wedding And A Mystery Smell

by Russell Turner - 17:12 on 11 July 2016

Sunday was a big day for City Limits – the day singer Jenna married Dean and the band played at their reception  in the Drumossie Hotel with ex-singer Ashley in front of the microphone, still full of bounce despite being noticeably pregnant.

Jenna had planned to sing only one song – Shania Twain's From This Moment which we'd never played together before – but later on, when the guitar riff announced that Sweet Child O' Mine was beginning, she scurried across the dance floor to take possession of the mic and belt it out. When the YouTubes appear of her performance, in full bridal outfit, I expect them to go viral.

The rest of the reception was as you'd expect: small boys sliding on their knees (as well observed by Peter Kay), ceilidh dancing where three-quarters of the dancers don't have a clue, and a dwindling audience as people head home, exhausted by a long day of social interaction.

But the bride was happy, and in the end that's all that matters. The groom was also happy, which is a bonus.

Earlier in the day, I'd left a Rural Retreat suffering from a mysterious aroma brought indoors on the paws and legs of an unhappy black cat (but not so unhappy that she was willing to have them rinsed off). The pong has subsided today, but faint whiffs can still be discerned.

There's a song all about her, but it's unlikely that City Limits will add it to the repertoire.
