Happy Thanksgiving Canada

Nell: Could you stop sighing, please?

Me: It’s a grey Monday morning thing.

Nell: When I feel low I think of my finest retrieving moments. Dashing into the sea with David and Harriet and getting to the ball first.

Me: I don’t think I have any finest moments.

Nell: Everyone does. Stop being self indulgent and wish the people of Canada a Happy Thanksgiving.

Me: Happy Thanksgiving Canada! Look after son Chris.

Nell: You see, you just couldn’t resist adding that, could you?

Me: Chris is far away in Toronto.

Nell: Do stop. He is absolutely fine and he is coming home for Christmas.

Me: Yes. He is.

Nell: There will be a Christmas tree and crackers and a turkey.

Me: The Canadians are eating turkey right now.

Nell: Good grief. It’s the middle of the night over there. Give them a chance.

Me: I always forget the time difference.

Nell: Poppy just called out from the kitchen. She wants some pumpkin pie recipes for the cafe, please.

Me: Good idea. Actually we have a lot to be thankful for, don’t we?

Nell: We certainly do. Our family and friends. Our lovely home. The sea.

Me: Happy Thanksgiving Nell.

Nell: Happy Thanksgiving. Enough of that, we have a lot to do today. Poppy wants the opening of the cafe to be a Halloween theme and pumpkins need hollowing out.

Me: I know it sounds silly but that pumpkin over there is looking at me.

Nell: It’s only Gladys. She fell in and decided to stay. Makes a change from my handbag.

Me: I see. Sorry.
