Queen's Birthday choristers whispered Bonzaview awake to the sound of blessed rain. We thanked you M'am as we opened the blinds to heavy fog. The first of the official party - a Heraldic Supporter mind you - was sighted already in the grounds by 10am recumbent on the crest beneath the mulberry. As preparations continued I passed by him several times. We acknowledged each other and wished the Queen long life.
The Official Party arrived early afternoon, by which time H.M.Supporter had taken his leave. The rain looked like setting in. Miss Hazel aged 7, accompanied by R & S and her canine companion Toby aged 3 months, when told of that sage local insisted upon the immediate production of a Commemoration.
