Nell: I am going to need a quiet day.
Me: Yesterday was full of surprises, wasn’t it?
Nell: Of all the things I expected to see at Widecombe Fair it wasn’t Alejandro and several random alpacas in a pen.
Me: I was delighted.
Nell: Or Knitwear Wolf with his own Alpaca Knitwear stall come to that.
Me: He was very popular.
Nell: Yes. People obviously love a smiling wolf in a cardigan.
Me: They do.
Nell: And then the Welsh corgi choir entered the arena dressed as Morris Dancers.
Me: They were awfully good. Those little legs with bells and waving scarves.
Nell: And then Gladys and David started dancing the Pasa Doble.
Me: They got a standing ovation.
Nell: It was a country fair. We were in a field. What were they thinking?
Me: People cheered.
Nell: And just when I hoped it was over the Terrier Racing started and Poppy was leading the field.
Me: She nearly won. That Jack Russell just pipped her at the post.
Nell: I was past caring by then.
Me: How did they all get there?
Nell: The Whippets Institute minibus.
Me: I see.
Nell: I think Alejandro and the Alpacas may have travelled in a Land Rover but I’m just guessing.
Me: Harriet said Jim was involved in the planning.
Nell: Those farm dogs were certainly enjoying the cider. I found Mutley in the middle of them all with a Hog Roast bap and a pint in his paw.
Me: Everyone had a wonderful time. Same time next year?
Nell: Not if I have to share my seat on the bus with a large Bulldog and a greedy Spaniel again.
Me: It was Bark and Ride.
Nell: They were eating pasties. I was covered in crumbs and they didn’t share.
