Pancakes and Snow

Me: It’s Chris and Marvin. How lovely to see them.

Nell: Yes. I was chatting to young Marvin in our WoofsApp group and he sent over these photos from Toronto for us all to see.

Me: It looks really cold there, doesn’t it?

Nell: Yes, it’s very cold in many places. Aphrodite said they were shovelling snow in Athens.

Me: Aphrodite the Goddess of Love?

Nell: No. The Cretan Hound from my Pilates class.

Me: How can that be happening?

Nell: It’s the change in the climate.

Me: I meant is Pilates still allowed?

Nell: It’s all online. Do keep up.

Me: I thought I saw Gladys and the llamas in the field.

Nell: You did. Our Penguin is filming their class outside. Gladys thinks it will lift morale if people can see the countryside and the llamas need space to express themselves.

Me: I see.

Nell: Rupert has provided them all with warm undergarments, so they are perfectly warm.

Me: He is such a kind wolf.

Nell: Yes. I really don’t know what I would have done without Rupert’s support since I lost Charlie. He is a dear friend.

Me: Yes, he is.

Nell: Why are you looking at me like that?

Me: Nothing. Just wondering to myself.

Nell: Well, don’t. Now, today is Pancake Day and this year Manuel is in charge. He has four frying pans on the go and is taking orders. Savoury, or sweet?

Me: Sweetish.

Nell: What do you mean?

Me: Lemon juice with a little sprinkling of sugar.

Nell: David is having his with bacon.

Me: No surprises there. I suppose Manuel will be able to toss several pancakes at once with those tentacles.

Nell: You’d still better get in the queue. The larger animals will be joining us soon.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
