Goodbye 2020

Me: That photo says it all.

Nell: What do you mean?

Me: Harriet is worried. You are a secret Cheeky Animal and my Big Brave Beautiful Boy is just chilling.

Nell: What about Poppy?

Me: Poppy is luxuriating on a pillow like the queen she is.

Nell: I’m not a secret Cheeky Animal and Harriet’s not worried.

Me: She is. She knows she did her early barking as well as her middle of the night barking.

Nell: Yes, that was annoying. No wonder David is tired.

Me: We are all tired. It’s New Year’s Eve, Nell. The way I’m feeling I shall be in bed before midnight.

Nell: We all will.

Me: What about the barbecue?

Nell: The barbecue is during the day. We can’t have animals trying to get home in the dark. Not in this cold weather.

Me: You are right.

Nell: The Whippets Institute minibus will provide a shuttle service.

Me: How many guests are we expecting?

Nell: Goodness only knows. Word has spread about the Game of Bones Barbecue so everyone is coming in costume.

Me: Gosh.

Nell: I’m just glad the trampoline has gone.

Me: Yes.

Nell: There’s been far too much bouncing lately.

Me: I’m very glad to be saying goodbye to 2020, What a truly dreadful year.

Nell: Yes. The important thing now is to look forward not back. As I told you before, there is light at the end of the kennel.

Me: I don’t like kennels.

Nell: Nobody does but it’s not for much longer.

Me: No.

Nell: Tonight we are closing the door on the 2020 kennel and moving into 2021.

Me: But it’s still a kennel, Nell.

Nell: With an open door just waiting for you to leave as soon as it’s safe to do so.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
