Oh what an exciting day. Daddy and his co-directors decided to hold a Garden Party on the lawn, all the Home Owners were invited plus one or two outside guests. Daddy and I checked the two marquees were correctly positioned. The big marquee was for the Home Owners and the small marquee was for the ‘The Blackburn and Darwen’ Jazz Band, who were attending the Aberdeen International Youth Festival. It was a nice day at Inchmarlo but unfortunately as the day went on the weather changed.
The band were going to play outside but because of the spitting rain, they had to move all their equipment back into the marquee. It went very well, especially when the jazz band played music by Glenn Miller and quite a number of the Home Owners joined in the singing.
And after they had finished playing I took Daddy across and I went and spoke to a number of the players. I got on very well with the lead singer who I heard Daddy say to her that she reminded him of Dyan Cannon who at one point was married to Cary Grant.
