Sad Days and Sunday Songs

Nell: It was a difficult day yesterday.

Me: Yes.

Nell: Five years since we lost your darling mother.

Me: Yes.

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.

Me: Yes.

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’.

Nell: Why?

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.
