The Conversation

"This is me, Violet . . .

"Listen Randy, I found the body of Clive this morning . . no I didn't report it to the police... I think they've found him now in any case . . . what? No, I bloody well didn't . . . what do you take me for? Look, will you listen to me and stop getting in a flap . . . I found a key next to his body . . . . . I'm sure it's the key to the security box that we buried in the copse behind The Neptune bar and Tea rooms . . . SHUT UP, for crying out loud . . . will you let me finish . . . okay, okay I'll let you get back to 'Deal or No Deal' in a minute . . . you are obsessed with that programme . . . what I want to know is how Clive got that key. It's important. I thought it was in Joe's father's safe or something . . . really . . . why am I always the last to know?? Oh, and another thing . . . have you ever heard of a bloke called Gideon Stone . . . yes, that's right he's a Dwarf agent . . . really. . . well that explains everything. Have you seen Joe? I think he's up at his mother's place dusting her gin bottle and being morbid . . . police swarming all over the place . . . yes, best to keep a low profile but I'm going up there later . . . you know how I can always twist Joe round my little finger . . . look everything will be fine . . . have you got clean pants for tomorrow? Good . . . yes and you. And don't forget . . . meet me in the copse tomorrow night . . . you know where . . . bring a spade, a pick axe and . . . "

The insertion of Deal or No Deal into Randy's personal habits. Wonderful.

Tacked on a paragraph at the end of the icy-clue segment to segue, roughly, to this one.

P.S. have you got clean pants for tomorrow?

Lord only knows what THAT'S about. Are you trying to steer us back into Mills and Boone territory?!?

'Deal or no deal'? Nostalgic dusting of the gin bottle ... welcome to Christmas (past hopefully for Violet and Joe) x

Well, you people really get off to a running start. I'm spending the morning reading this and loving it. And I'm only half way through. And my dogs are nosing around me, begging for their morning walk. Hopefully, when I get back from the walk, I can read faster than new posts get written.
