Me: There seems to be a lot happening in the field this morning. The puppies are fascinated.
Nell: Sunday Songs is going international.
Me: Any particular reason?
Nell: It’s Canadian Thanksgiving tomorrow so the Welsh Corgi Choir are dressed as Mounties.
Me: Are they riding in on the llamas?
Nell: Don’t be silly. Llamas can’t be trusted with anything on their backs. They fall over.
Me: Not always.
Nell: Often enough and with no warning. I know corgis bounce but it’s far too risky.
Me: Corgis don’t bounce.
Nell: They’re good at tumbling but not from any height.
Me: Knitwear Wolf must be pleased.
Nell: About tumbling corgis? Why?
Me: About celebrating Canada. He’s Canadian.
Nell: I see. Yes, Rupert is delighted.
Me: Is he wearing a Canadian cardigan?
Nell: Of course.
Me: Are we having a Canadian breakfast?
Nell: We are. Herr Hoffmann has made pancakes with maple syrup and bacon on the side.
Nell: And we’re having roast turkey for lunch.
Me: I just had a Poppy moment then.
Nell: It’s understandable. Roasts were Poppy’s speciality.
Me: Are they using her recipe book?
Me: So, she’s still involved.
Nell: She’s extremely involved. She keeps shouting in my ear about basting the turkey.
Me: Talking of turkeys, is Timothy quite safe?
Nell: Yes, he’s gone on a painting retreat in Tuscany.
Me: Wise decision.
Nell: Herr Hoffmann is making pumpkin pie for dessert.
Me: I’d rather have apple pie.
Nell: You need to keep an open mind.
Me: Shel says I would love his pumpkin pie.
Nell: He’ll be visiting us again soon.
Me: It will be good to see him again.
Nell: We can discuss the animation.
Me: I’m still hoping we can make it happen.
Nell: We will. Trust me.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
