Tony is on board

Nell: I feel better now Tony is on board.

Me: Yes. He can keep a lookout when he is doing his rounds.

Nell: It was good to see him.

Me: He is a kind man.

Nell: Yes. Tony is to be trusted.

Me: I like sunny Sundays.

Nell: Yes. I’ve asked Poppy for boiled eggs for breakfast. David overindulged at the barbecue yesterday so a light breakfast is called for.

Me: He was helping me with the clearing up.

Nell: He was stealing sausages.

Me: Poppy’s sword dance worried me.

Nell: It worried everyone, especially when Mutley joined in. Did you notice that young farm dog trying to get Harriet’s attention over the fence?

Me: No.

Nell: When I asked her about him. She giggled.

Me: She is adorable.

Nell: She is too young and I am not having her seeing a farm dog. By the way, I’m sure the Doberman was behind me in the queue at the delicatessen yesterday morning. I had popped in to get Mutley’s Cornish Yarg. He loves that cheese.

Me: Are you sure?

Nell: Yes. It’s his favourite.

Me: I mean are you sure it was the Doberman?

Nell: Yes. It was in the cooked food section but when I looked around it had gone.

Me: I wonder what it was buying.

Nell: What’s that got to do with it?

Me: It might have revealed something about its situation. A large pork pie would imply there were more of them. A small one that it is working alone.

Nell: I worry about you sometimes.

Me: I wonder what it wants, though. Do you think it’s from the Daily Growl?

Nell: Charlie says it isn’t. He says he has put a stop to it and told them to leave me alone. He was ridiculously concerned when I told him about the Doberman.

Me: I wish you wouldn’t contact him.

Nell: It was just a quick message on Woof’s App. Stop fussing. Soldiers, or triangles with your egg?

Me: Soldiers, please. But Nell…

Nell: Enough. I will be fine.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
