Walks and Thoughts

Me: I was thinking on our walk today.

Nell: Oh dear.

Me: We are very lucky to be able to walk through Buttercup Meadow.

Nell: Yes, we are.

Me: I know I grumble sometimes about missing the sea but at least I know it’s just over the hill.

Nell: Exactly.

Me: Although so near and yet so far can almost be worse.

Nell: Here we go.

Me: I was thinking about Tony and Sue and their children and grandchildren who live close by but can’t visit them.

Nell: That must be hard.

Me: My children and grandchildren live abroad so I know I can’t see them that often. I’m used to it.

Nell: You are.

Me: On the other hand, if social distancing can be maintained, people can at least wave to each other. Like Harriet and Jim the Farm Dog, or Knitwear Wolf and Myfanwy.

Nell: Knitwear Wolf received a letter from Myfanwy this morning.

Me: A letter?

Nell: Yes. We thought it was for me at first,from The Queen, because of the seal.

Me: Did Princess deliver it then?

Nell: Don’t be silly. A different seal. Myfanwy is related to Lady Anwen so she is a royal corgi, I suppose.

Me: As long as it wasn’t the actual royal seal. The one that went missing.

Nell: You don’t think Myfanwy could have taken it when we visited The Queen, do you?

Me: I don’t know.

Nell: Knitwear Wolf turned rather pale when he saw it.

Me: Can wolves turn pale?

Nell: You know what I mean and that’s not the point. I think I may have to investigate this. You’ve put the rat among the pigeons now.

Me: Don’t you mean cat?

Nell: No. Everybody knows rats and pigeons cause havoc. Cats are discreet.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
