Nell: It was a difficult day yesterday.
Nell: Five years since we lost your darling mother.
Nell: We went for a lovely walk by the river and then we took her and your stepfather some flowers.
Me: Yes. I’m glad they are together.
Nell: And you were able to talk to her on your own while Kev and I went for a walk.
Me: I was.
Nell: It’s very beautiful up there. So peaceful.
Me: It is. You weren’t gone long.
Nell: We decided it might be best if we stayed close to you.
Me: Thank you.
Nell: No need for thanks. It’s where Kev and I want to be.
Me: I miss her so much.
Nell: I know you do but as I’ve told you before she’s always with you.
Nell: Someone loved so dearly never really goes away.
Me: You’re right.
Nell: Now, David is performing at Sunday Songs today.
Me: What’s he singing?
Nell: A duet with Gladys. They’re both wearing cowboy boots and hats.
Me: It’s not really the weather for boots.
Nell: That’s what I said.
Me: I wonder if it’s ‘Islands in the Sun’.
Nell: No. It’s nothing gentle like that. It sounded more like an argument in rehearsal.
Me: ‘These Boots are Made for Walking’?
Nell: Obviously, but we’re trying to guess the song.
Me: That is a song.
Nell: It had something to do with Jackson, whoever that might be.
Me: ‘I’m Going to Jackson’.
Me: It’s the name of the song. Jackson is a place.
Nell: Never heard of it but we’d better go now or we’ll miss the llamas line dancing.
Me: I can’t wait.
Nell: Good. We thought it might make you smile. You’re greatly loved, you know.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
