On a lighter note

I read this in the Observer this morning - it made me smile - I do hope the last bit is not culled from somewhere else.
Daphne Du Maurier's older sister, Angela, fell in love with Winston Churchill's aunt, Olive Guthrie. Olive lived in a castle on Mull with a pekinese and a parrot. The parrot had previously shared its quarters with the butler and every time it heard a bell ring it squawked 'LET THE OLD BITCH WAIT!'
A virtuous, insurrectionary parrot! I wonder if it had a name.
