VE Day

Me: The puppies always enjoy a visit from Tony.

Nell: Yes, but you know he won’t be here today. It’s VE Day and a bank holiday.

Me: Yes, I know. 75 years since the end of the war. People had so many celebrations planned for today.

Nell: There is nothing to be done. It is what it is and celebrations can still be had at home.

Me: Yes. You’re right.

Nell: You realise we are living through historical times now, don’t you?

Me: I suppose we are. I can’t wait to celebrate this pandemic being over.

Nell: I’m afraid that is quite a long time away but we will get through it. Together.

Me: Yes, we will.

Nell: Now, Poppy is absolutely adamant that she isn’t feeling even vaguely Welsh.

Me: I think she is more Australian.

Nell: What are you talking about?

Me: I was chatting to my friend Walt in Australia this morning and he says Poppy is a frustrated cattle dog.

Nell: I know what he means. I could see her herding cattle. Have you heard about the llamas?

Me: No. What’s happened?

Nell: Constable Amanda Panda popped in for his daily scone earlier and told me all about it. You may find this rather shocking.

Me: Have they lost their pyjamas?

Nell: Yes and they’re wearing Welsh hats and bedgowns.

Me: Now, that is surprising.

Nell: And singing in Welsh, too.

Me: Not ‘Cwm Rhondda’?

Nell: How did you know?

Me: I’m half Welsh. I was singing it the other day.

Nell: You should have told me. Any sign of Welshness needs reporting.

Me: It’s ‘Bread of Heaven’, Nell. We all know it. The Welsh corgi choir sing it all the time.

Nell: You mean ‘Bread of Devon’. Get the name right, please.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
