Smiles and Fluff

Me: Look at those smiling faces. What’s Dave doing on my computer?

Nell: Zooming with Naughty Nigel and Boo. It’s the Devon Boys Club.

Me: They look so happy.

Nell: They love living in Devon and now there is light at the end of the kennel we will be able to visit them soon.

Me: Yes. I can’t wait until it is safe to do that. Having two sisters living near by and not being able to see them has been very hard.

Nell: When is your first vaccine?

Me: Kev and I are going down to Plymouth on Thursday. I am so excited.

Nell: I am very relieved.

Me: Has Terry gone back to work, by the way?

Nell: Yes. He says he prefers to keep busy. Terry doesn’t like to dwell on things. He is an active kind of seagull.

Me: I saw him delivering a huge parcel to Susan just now.

Nell: That will be her new nest, I expect.

Me: From Fifi La Beefy?

Nell: Exactly.

Me: Anyway, you didn’t tell me what happened when Poppy and Terry confronted Squawk.

Nell: Didn’t I?

Me: No.

Nell: That’s probably because I don’t know much about it, except that Poppy seems much happier since then.

Me: Well, she’s not happy now, Nell.

Nell: Why?

Me: She just ran into the garden waving her sword.

Nell: What’s happening?

Me: She’s attacking Susan’s new nest. She’s cutting it to pieces.

Nell: Sally said this might happen.

Me: There is fluff everywhere.

Nell: I’m afraid it isn’t fluff.

Me: No, it isn’t. You’re going to think I’m silly, but it looks like Poppy’s hair to me just after she’s been clipped.

Nell: I’m not going to think you are silly at all. It is Poppy’s hair.

Me: Oh my goodness. Sorry.
