Handsome has a lead

Me: My darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy looks awfully tired.

Nell: Waiting can be extremely exhausting you know.

Me: Who is Dave waiting for?

Nell: You, of course. What a silly question. We don’t like it when you are away.

Me: So when were you going to tell me Henry was hiding in my scarf?

Nell: Was he?

Me: Don’t play the innocent.

Nell: We thought you would like the company. I hope you’re looking after him.

Me: Yes, he’s on the balcony. He loves the sea views, especially the sunsets.

Nell: He can’t stay out there too long. He’s a house woodlouse.

Me: I know.

Nell: Just keep him warm and safe.

Me: I will. How are things?

Nell: We have had a development.

Me: Tell me more.

Nell: Handsome has a lead and it’s all because of Cornish Yarg.

Me: That’s a cheese wrapped in nettles.

Nell: I know. May I continue?

Me: Yes.

Nell: So Gary was delivering the cheeses as usual and he got talking with Handsome who was admiring his Somerset Brie.

Me: Who is Gary?

Nell: You must know Gary the Goat. Long hair and a beard. He runs the farm shop near the Garden Centre. He is one of Poppy’s suppliers.

Me: I don’t think I know him.

Nell: Anyway it turns out that a Beefy wearing a sporran bought a piece of Cornish Yarg from Gary’s shop yesterday so Handsome is following it up.

Me: Was it Scottish?

Nell: No, it said ‘Thanks, Buddy’ so it’s clearly a local.

Me: Very interesting.

Nell: Funnily enough Gary is convinced that Cornish Yarg is named after him.

Me: Why?

Nell: He thinks it’s Gary spelt backwards.

Me: It isn’t.

Nell: I know but Gary is dyslexic. Don’t be so judgemental.

Me: I see. Sorry.
