Harriet can’t Keep Quiet

Me: What’s the matter with Harriet? She was barking again at about 6am.

Nell: She’s missing Jim the Farm Dog.

Me: I understand that it is very hard not to be with your loved ones but she can’t wake everyone up like that.

Nell: I know. We discussed it at Morning Thoughts. There is a time for Sharing Your Feelings and a time for Keeping Quiet.

Me: You would think she would be good at keeping quiet as she’s trained as a spy.

Nell: She says there’s a difference between her professional life and her private one.

Me: Well, the lockdown is driving everyone a little crazy.

Nell: Yes. Knitwear Wolf is having awful problems with Myfanwy. When he took Princess and Our Penguin down to the sea for their usual swim, she refused to wave.

Me: Maybe she didn’t see him.

Nell: No. She definitely saw him because Our Penguin filmed it. He wanted to give it to Rupert as a thank you but she turned away.

Me: Oh dear. Is he very sad?

Nell: Rupert is more disappointed than sad. There is nothing he can do about it.

Me: Poor Knitwear Wolf.

Nell: At least he was able to enjoy a bacon sandwich with Mutley and Joyce afterwards.

Me: What about social distancing?

Nell: They sit on the terrace and he sits on his motorbike outside. David does the serving in a long apron and places a tray by the gate.

Me: Is a long apron necessary?

Nell: Standards must be maintained. What’s that awful noise?

Me: It sounds like a siren.

Nell: Well, I’ve seen it all now.

Me: What’s going on?

Nell: Please tell me there isn’t a large Panda knocking on our door.

Me: I’m afraid there is, and it’s wearing a policeman’s helmet. Sorry.
