Sweet Faces

Me: Look at your smiling face. We ended up having a lovely day, didn’t we? Despite having no internet for most of it.

Nell: You certainly enjoyed your dinner out.

Me: It was our friends last evening down here.

Nell: Why is there a photo of Shelagh?

Me; She came to the pub with Terry and Marian.

Nell: So dogs are allowed?

Me: Oh yes. The Sloop even welcomes them.

Nell: May I remind you that part of my senior dog privileges is that I join you on excursions?

Me: I thought you would be tired after our long walk on the beach.

Nell: I am never too tired for dinner.

Me: Also one dog per table is probably enough and Shelagh was ever so well behaved.

Nell: What is that supposed to mean?

Me: You’ve become awfully bossy in your old age Nell, and rather vocal.

Nell: I like to speak my mind.

Me: Shelagh had quite a difficult start to life so it’s wonderful to see how happy she is now.

Nell: I see what you’re doing.

Me: Do you?

Nell: Reminding me of Shelagh‘s past. Well, I’m coming with you next time.

Me: Yes, you definitely are.

Nell: We had a lovely evening without you. In case you’re interested.

Me: I am.

Nell: Poppy made a cottage pie with an extra one for David to cheer him up.

Me: How kind.

Nell: We Skyped with Sally in London and Marvin in Toronto.

Me: Have Chris and Shannon moved into the new apartment?

Nell: Not yet. Chris is unwell. We’re hoping it’s just a bad cold but he is going to test for Covid.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: Stop right now. He isn’t flying until 11th July. He has plenty of time to get well.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
