Well done, David.

Nell: David has resumed guard duties and is watching over Poppy.

Me: If that’s what you want to call it.

Nell: He is allowed to lie on the lounger if he remains alert. We need extra security. A long haired Beefy threw a baguette at Mutley early this morning when he was doing his Tai Chi exercises in the garden.

Me: How rude? Long haired?

Nell: Yes. It was wearing a wig. Sally has asked David not to eat the evidence next time but praised his quick reaction in catching it. David said it was a bit hard so we are guessing it wasn’t fresh.

Me: Is that important?

Nell: It could be.

Me: Was Saturday’s meeting with Madame Odile a success?

Nell: Yes. They think Sally is charmed by their delicious French delicacies. She has agreed to talk to Poppy about the French bakery supplying her cafe with baguettes.

Me: That’s never going to happen.

Nell: It might have to if we are to find out the truth. We need to know what’s in the baguettes.

Me: You can have all kinds of fillings. Ham, cheese, fish. They are very versatile.

Nell: We are talking smuggling here.

Me: French Brie, or Camembert?

Nell: Why is David jumping around?

Me: I don’t know.

Nell: Go and get the pooper scooper.

Me: I’d rather not.

Nell: I can see it glinting from here.

Me: What is it?

Nell: If I’m not mistaken that is a diamond. Well done, David.

Me: How did he do that?

Nell: It was in the baguette, of course. Clever.

Me: Health and Safety are going to have something to say about this.

Nell: Stop waving the pooper scooper around and go and get Sally.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
