Some Good News

Me: You dogs are so lovely with each other. I saw Harriet comforting you.

Nell: She’s a sweet and caring niece.

Me: Alice said little Faye wanted to jump on a plane and fly over to be with us all.

Nell: Bless her.

Me: Poppy was such a big personality. I keep thinking she’s still here.

Nell: She is. In a way.

Me: I could even smell fresh bread this morning. As if someone was baking.

Nell: They were.

Me: Has Dave been trying to make bread? That’s very ambitious.

Nell: It wasn’t David.

Me: Who was it?

Nell: Herr Hoffmann.

Me: Is he back?

Nell: Yes, Henry and Horst finally managed to track him down with the help of Owl Pacino.

Me: Where was he?

Nell: The Beefies weren’t lying when they said they saw a seal and a bear out at sea. Herr Hoffmann went on a spontaneous fishing trip with Sir Roger Blubbery.

Me: Why didn’t he tell us?

Nell: Herr Hoffmann wrote a message in the sand.

Me: What did it say?

Nell: ‘Gone Fishing.’

Me: Nobody saw that.

Nell: I know. The sea must have washed it away.

Me: I’m glad he’s back and safe.

Nell: He’s a completely new bear. As soon as he heard about Poppy he took over the kitchen and started baking.

Me: Does he know how?

Nell: Yes. It turns out that Herr Hoffmann trained as a baker. When you saw him with a bag of bread rolls in Germany he had made them himself.

Me: Gosh.

Nell: He’s been retired for a while but he still loves to bake.

Me: This is wonderful. Can I smell bacon?

Nell: You can. Bacon sandwiches all round this morning.

Me: If Dave leaves us any.

Nell: You’d better hurry.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
