Autumn walks

Nell: It was a wonderful light on our walk yesterday.

Me: Yes, I can see.

Nell: Beautiful colours and unseasonably warm. Kev took a photo.

Me: Lovely.

Nell: Did Malcolm take care of you?

Me: Yes. Kev had made a fire and Malcolm, Mutley and I just relaxed together.

Nell: I think that young flamingo is going to blossom with us. He wasn’t cut out for a soldier’s life.

Me: I agree. Mutley was telling us about his time in the Royal Navy.

Nell: Ah yes. He saw some sights. He trained at Dartmouth, of course.

Me: I didn’t know.

Nell: Well, there’s a lot you don’t know. Life is one big discovery which is just what it should be.

Me: I suppose so.

Nell: Now, David has some homework from Dogs School. They wanted to know if he is still Marvellous.

Me: Yes, he is. Extremely.

Nell: Apparently he needs to work on his anxiety.

Me: He is still afraid of the dark. Harriet always goes out with him if she can. She is fearless.

Nell: I’ve noticed he has taken to carrying Gladys with him in her pumpkin when he goes out at night. She uses her iBone as a light.

Me: Does she?

Nell: Yes, the effect is rather spooky, especially when David wears his tall hat and the cloak The Cat made him.

Me: So that’s what it was. It all makes sense now.

Nell: What do you mean?

Me: I thought I was delirious when I looked out last night. I didn’t tell you because I knew you wouldn’t believe me.

Nell: Can you blame me? The fantasy world you live in.

Me: I know. Sorry.
