The original tune, “Mr. and ...

The original tune, “Mr. and Mrs. McLaughlin of San Diego” and the strathspey tune “Marjorie Easton McLaughlin” were composed as a gift for Marjorie and Richard McLaughlin for their wedding on the 18th of January 1992, at which Muriel was a surprise guest, at the appropriate moment emerging from an automatic dishwasher box.

The lively music seemed to match the nature of the recipients and the dance is written in the same vein, as Richard frequently expresses a preference for fast moving, good going dances!
