Tourists welcome



'So, can I put a 9 in here?'

'Er?' Lefty replied. '..........................No, you've already got a 9 up there at the top.'

'Of course!' Flossie sighed. 'I'm rubbish at these things.'

'It's just practice.'

'Possibly? I'll try and finish it later on. I see you've got some more signs going up.'

'Wanted to keep adding in extra details. Makes it look more professional.'

'Fine by me,' Flossie bleated. 'Strange things really, when you think about it.'

'Signs?'

'No, tourists.'

'Mum used to take us on holiday when we were lambs.'

'Really?'

'Well, it was just the far end of the field, but still, we enjoyed it.'

'What did you do?'

'Not much, we'd run around a bit, get our heads stuck in a hedge, that sort of thing.'

'Still, nice to go somewhere different.'

'And yourself?'

Flossie shook his head. 'Never happened. Mum was in a pen. I grew up looking out through bars....I'd rather not talk about it.'

'Of course.'

'................................................So, can I put a 5 in there?'

'Yes, and then you can put a 4 next to it and a 2 below it.'

'Did you work that out while we were talking?'

'Sort of.'

'I'm rubbish at these things.'
