Sunday Visitors

Me: We have to start with an apology.

Nell: We do.

Me; I’m afraid Kev was feeling unwell again and so The Growl on Sunday couldn’t go out today.

Nell: I’m sure everyone understands.

Me: We’re hoping to get it out to you next Sunday.

Nell: On another note, we had a surprise visit.

Me: Yes. Naughty Nigel and Boo arrived at the house in the back of an open top sports car. They were like a couple of celebrities. It was very exciting.

Nell: There was no need for the llamas to come over all unnecessary.

Me: Everyone wanted to sit in the car.

Nell: Until that tiger got in.

Me: Beauregard looked quite at home. Imagine driving around Devon with a tiger in the back of your car?

Nell: No, thank you. It’s enough trouble having one in our tree house.

Me: Well, I thought it was kind of Nigel and Boo to visit. They knew Kev wasn’t well and they had heard about the roaring on Burgh Island.

Nell: You are wrong.

Me: Am I?

Nell: They actually heard the roaring on Burgh Island.

Me: Really?

Nell: Yes, they were having dinner at the hotel.

Me: How on earth could they afford that? Maybe they are celebrities.

Nell: That’s not the point. During dinner there was a distinct sound of roaring.

Me: How disconcerting.

Nell: Boo thought it was Nigel’s tummy rumbling at first but then they realised it was coming from outside.

Me: Very strange. Maybe they should tell Detective Inspector King?

Nell: No need. Lionel knows all about it. They saw him on the sea tractor the same evening. So he must have heard it too.

Me: Sea tractor?

Nell: Yes. The one that takes people to and from the island.

Me: Oh yes. Sorry.
