Me: At least the sun came out for a while yesterday.
Nell: Yes, we were able to have a picnic by the river.
Me: And the children went down to the sea.
Nell: Rupert is thinking of running a paddle boarding safety class, by the way.
Me: Any particular reason why?
Nell: When the sea mists came down nobody could see, or be seen, but some people were still out on their boards until the lifeguards called them in.
Me: Oh dear.
Nell: As a seasoned paddle boarder himself Rupert feels he could be of help to others.
Me: We first saw Knitwear Wolf on a paddle board down at Hope Cove, didn’t we? He waved at us. Do you remember?
Nell: Of course I remember.
Me: I suppose you would. It’s not every day a wolf in knitted garments waves at you from a paddle board.
Nell: True. It’s not an everyday occurrence.
Me: Little did we know he would become such an important part of our lives.
Nell: Snoopy wants him to audition for Indy’s father.
Me: That’s a wonderful idea. He’d be perfect, wouldn’t he?
Nell: Yes. I rather think he would.
Me: But hang on a minute. Does that mean Indy has to be a wolf?
Nell: Of course not.
Me: But if his father is a wolf then he must be a bit of a wolf too.
Nell: This is a movie. Indy can be whoever he needs to be.
Me: Even a fierce female terrier?
Nell: Did Poppy tell you to ask that?
Nell: Personally, I don’t see Indy as a female but the decision does not lie with me alone.
Me: Fair enough.
Nell: I draw the line at llamas and seals, however. So, don’t start suggesting that.
Me: Right. Sorry.
