Me: Happy May Day everyone.
Nell: Thank you, and the same to you.
Me: It was lovely to see Tony again, wasn’t it?
Nell: Yes. Tony is going to keep an eye out for sharp beaked Beefies, by the way.
Me: Good. Is he coming to the Maypole Dance?
Nell: He wouldn’t miss it. He’s bringing Sue and Ollie.
Me: I suppose llamas dancing around a maypole carrying ribbons isn’t something you see every day.
Nell: Neither is Poppy in a full suit of armour brandishing her sword.
Me: She means business then?
Nell: She certainly does. Although Knitwear Wolf made an excellent suggestion at Morning Thoughts that might help avoid any violence.
Me: I know Rupert likes to talk things through but the time for peaceful negotiations might be over.
Nell: No. He suggested the Welsh corgi choir should be issued with pistols.
Me: I don’t think shooting the Beefies is the right way forward, Nell.
Nell: I’m talking about water pistols. Good grief. This isn’t The Godfather you know.
Me: What a relief. You had me worried then.
Nell: On another note, tomorrow is a big day for Kev and his team. David is particularly excited about his Ask Dave column.
Me: Yes, I can’t wait to read it.
Nell: Kev has asked us to pin a link to the World of Nell at the top of our Facebook page which people just need to click on to sign up for The Growl on Sunday.
Me: Good idea. It’s http://www.worldofnell.com/ isn’t it?
Nell: Yes. Can you hear that?
Me: It sounds like a huge flock of Beefies.
Nell: It is and they are heading towards the Maypole. Sound the alert.
Me: How do I do that?
Nell: By shouting ‘May Day! May Day!’ of course.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
