Talks with Tony

Me: Is Tony still with Dave?

Nell: Yes. You know Talks with Tony are an important part of David’s day.

Me: Are they discussing Morris Dancing?

Nell: No.

Me: Sea shanties?

Nell: No, although I believe David may be auditioning for Tony’s crew soon.

Me: Is it about Sally then? I know Tony has given Dave good advice in the past.

Nell: No, it’s about flower costumes for the Easter Parade. David is going as a sunflower by popular demand and Harriet is a tulip.

Me: I wonder what flower I would be? You would be a rose. Beautiful, but with thorns.

Nell: I beg your pardon?

Me: You can be quite sharp at times, you know. Especially with me.

Nell: Sometimes tough love is the only way. Gladys is going to be a sequinned daisy.

Me: Yes, The Cat says the sequins are like morning dew on the petals.

Nell: Good grief. Malcolm is a pink gladioli and Susan is an Iris Florentina in soft grey seagull colours.

Me: What about Poppy?

Nell: She is still going as the Easter Terrier with Mutley as Father Time.

Me: This is getting a little random.

Nell: Timothy is steering clear of proceedings.

Me: Probably for the best. Will Charlie be joining you?

Nell: No. He has his iBone and I will send photos.

Me: My mother always said I was a pansy because of my eyes.

Nell: You are missing her, aren’t you?

Me: Yes. She loved this time of year.

Nell: How about a walk in the meadow? Just you and I?

Me: I would love that. I know Dave has his Talks with Tony but Conversations with you, Nell, make my day.

Nell: Mine too. Always.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
