Radio four, we present the archers Carol is worried about her son, Richard, not only is he withdrawn and his social when at home, but his schoolwork is not up to standard as John is in America. She confides in Jack Woolly Jennifer. A message about collecting Anne tomorrow, Jack, I, mustn't waste your time, wasting our time covers it down cattle. Well, if you sure I finished, my office work for to die, believe me, sire after Richards go. First thing tomorrow know that the crack of dawn Richard's house. Masters invited me to lunch. Huh?
We'll do our talking then, and I hope to get back before. Dark means a lot of driving I don't mind that if it helps to sort things out, you don't think I'm making too much of this. Do you jack? Well, I'll just ignore it.
No it'll go away if John were here, of course, it would be quite different. In fact, well that's jumping to a rather doubtful conclusion. I mean, if John hadn't gone away, Richard might not be behaving like this that'd be too easy. Wouldn't. It doesn't.
You think no. I'm sure there's more to it than that could be just a part of growing up. Well, that's, why I'm hoping I'm not making too much of it still I'll know, better when I've seen Mr. Marshall that is our master yes, didn't I say, no, oh, he's, very pleasant. Little, try. But he seems interested in Richard today. There wasn't more time last weekend when he took the boys back to school, oh, well, that was murdered yet boys dashing all over the place cases and trucks.
Arriving parents to be smiled at Mr. Marshall, could. Hardly finish the sentence without interruption, let's hope you get him alone. This John, then he's promised that he knows what a journey I'm making.
Well, let me know what he says, but if it's a fortnight Nora, you must go and see him for your own peace of mind, especially when you never have any trouble of that sort like clockwork there, you are then I taught him appalling set, though, and she may be right, let's hope. So but you're doing no good worrying I could be worrying over nothing jingling up. So you.
Could now mime, dear stand clear your forgiveness are asking Mrs. Archer. But this isn't your usual time for doing your Washington it's missing or taking advantage of my good nature. In fact, I'm having to control myself, these Coolies mustn't have rough treatment. But when I squeeze them I find myself thinking of Laura's neck and what a neck that woman's got you're, not saying all these things are her cousins, no they're for the charity shop. She took advantage of my apologizing for leaving her out of.
Things at Christmas, you don't mean, she agreed to let bygones be bygones. If you do this washing nothing so straightforward, oh, no. She was quicker than I was she must have seen I was having to pocket my pride and led me on to promise more than I really intended. And after all did you hear something not Dan, is it? He said, he was going to make himself scarce, leave well, that's, what I must do, and thanks for listening Mrs. Arch and for well-being so understanding about Holly nonsense.
Dear no point. Preaching at folks, when things are rather good, lord, where's, Aladdin, wish, washy, always just like a Chinese law, well, I'm going to rub the magic lamp and disappear. I let myself out and thanks Mrs. O. That's, all right, dear, make sure you go now. And let me know how you get up I will that's all what about mum where's. She off to just the doctors and don't start putting two and two together sound I'll leave that to you lady.
Anyway, mum Jill's dying to know if you've heard from Kenton, he said, he was writing I. Had a lovely letter card thing. You know, a lot of colored postcards all joined together. He seems to be having a marvelous time.

Do hope she does the same over this Edexcel wind, business, yes, I think she will, it's affected her quite a bit studied. Her up know and got a lot of common sense. Her shoe laughs. Well, look at tonight.
As soon as you know, I had to go to Bohr Chester. She asked me to pick her up at Tech. Oh, did she yeah? Well.

She is waiting for someone no just been and finished Mrs. Torrance is kitchen that she was pleased. Pleased. I couldn't get away I had to I have two cups of tea and two slices of cake.

And just in case, you're thinking, otherwise, young Neal's behave, very well, where you're concerned, what did it have to do with him that's what he said, but he didn't get asked quite a few questions about me, you and your. Friends, and he was very loyal, he even told Martha Woodford, he felt protective told you Neal Dean said, he was very fond of you like a brother and sister, oh, that sort of fondness, yes, that sort of fungus, just thought I'd mention it.
It would be a shame if you didn't realize what a good friend is me, yes, especially the way I've treated him. Thanks for telling me, Dad I'll, give him a bun and a pat on the head. One of these days, that's your glasses. Resealed are you gentlemen, all right now, yes, fine.

So she said in working hours that's, not like Nora any idea what she wanted to see Doris about down, no and - and ask if it's important Doris will tell me. And if it's not, I'm, not Wally, my head, though free her best way I suppose Nora didn't see myself there does she and she made things worse. The other. Day when she went around apologizing for being a bit snappy, early in the week, Laura Accord embarrassing that anyway, Johnny how's, Pat's, hahaha bets yet, going rain, Stacy, sorry for being grumpy, not a style at all don't.
You be so sure Hey, oh don't. Look. So bothered I only meant we've had a bit of a disagreement, and she's changed their mind that's all nothing serious or blood or is it what you mentioned the other day? Yeah, that's. It Hayden and the garage, the other point, you know, I've managed to make. Her realize, it isn't very likely to make himself ill. Now is it Hayden? Hmm, I'm, Tony, that's afraid he might do too much then she's after nursing knows where her duty lies.
You mean, it was me. She was thinking about well, the two of us really married life suits as you know, we'd hate anything to change. It's nursing Hayden could be quite an interruption. Now, I can't, see it happening, and I've convinced Pat to.
So now she is in favor of him running the place issue. Yeah, more or less. And if we see signs that. It's taking too much out of him, we'll say so Prevention's better than cure you mean, exactly he will be taken over yet, a wild or Willie, I know, Ralph and Lillian are off next week, but to be some time before the estate sorted out wounded officially, yes, but Hayden's come to an unofficial arrangement with Ralph he's taking over in a week. Sure you're up early Shula, that's, nothing, new I'd. Never notice been too busy I'm just off to the stables' lot of changes around there. No Mrs. Bellam has given up.

Suppose they must have been worried still that's over isn't. It is it. Yes.

Did you I thought he was a bit pathetic really, but that yeah, when a bloke like that spend all that time at Tech and can only talk on one subject, whew, hey, two subjects, HIFI and jazz?
Yeah, stir a bit limited in it like Pete. Sayers must be something wrong when a bloke stops. Nothing else in his life.
There was more in his life, and he was letting on wasn't there. Yeah, is that what finished it? What really got me was the stupid lies. He told me, as if I was a little girl or. Believed anything anyway, thanks for being so decent, s'alright, and you're always welcome to join the bags, you know, regular, I mean, it's, not just helping out like you did after Christmas, I think I'd like that, not that I have much time. Oh, I, don't matter drift in when you can Bautista action, groups, no different from any other.

Your main I'd like to been able to rent those milking units. I don't mind. Admitting Ralph had very clear ideas how he wanted things disposed of hadn't they and to be fair he's, looked after his men, yes, what about his generosity to the church really putting his hand into his pockets, I couldn't afford that sort of thing. Oh, yes, you could in fact so could I, even though I was a good bit less than you come are selling out Jimmy block Ralph. They have been by the times to do it. Of course, and there will be again, but we were saying then f, you're meeting the other night a lot of us there could do what Ralph's done fell up and live in luxury on the proceeds we're, not in this big away as Ralph.
Of course, why hang it. He must be nearly a millionaire, but we could have a fairly easy life like she down to you. Neither you nor most.

Now that proves my point I sold a good few of my business interests came to Cambridge for severance Armand, and I've never been so busy nor so happy in Malaga it's in your blood. Isn't it. Same as farming's in mind times, couldn't, be harder.
