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?
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.
