Nell: There’s been A Worrying Development.
Me: What’s happened?
Nell: We were all in the activity field with Kev enjoying a pleasant walk.
Me: I’m so glad you were able to stretch your legs. Only a few more weeks until we can go to the sea again.
Nell: May I continue?
Me: Of course.
Nell: When Kev stopped and looked up at the sky.
Me: He does that. He used to fly helicopters.
Nell: There weren’t any helicopters.
Me: Well, he and Poppy love discussing flying so I expect he was just monitoring the weather, or whatever pilots do.
Nell: This has nothing to do with the weather. Where was I?
Me: Kev was looking at the sky.
Nell: Yes, and then he sat down on a tree trunk and started singing.
Me: Well, that’s not worrying, Nell. It’s sensible. He knows he has to rest.
Nell; What about the singing?
Me: He must be feeling much better to suddenly do that.
Nell: It wasn’t any old song.
Me: What was it?
Nell: ‘Summer Nights’.
Me: A rather unexpected choice.
Nell: Exactly what I thought.
Me: Because you can’t really sing it on your own.
Nell: That’s not what I meant.
Me: I hope you joined in.
Nell: Of course we did. Harriet sang Sandy’s part. Dave sang the boys’ and Poppy and I sang the girls’.
Me: Good. I’m glad he didn’t sing alone. He has a growly sort of voice which really wouldn’t have worked in the Sandy bits.
Nell: That’s not the point. It’s from ‘Grease’.
Me: Oh yes.
Nell: And it happened after he looked at the sky.
Me: What was Lionel King doing in the sky? Does he fly helicopters too?
Nell: This has nothing to do with helicopters, or Lionel King.
Me: Oh. Sorry.
