Good grief. There is a lady and a girl. It’s on the beach on the weekend. They are going to work to do a certain thing. It is autumn and a sunny day. Their names are Emily and Doreen. She has been that all her life. They met Doreen and she was willing to go along. They met on the beach, a good and faithful servant. They eat for a living while working. They must be office workers. They are because Doreen has been watching. If they have time to sit on the beach they have time to work. They like doing what they do. They feel a little bored at times, a little disappointed. They are trying to get set for work. Doreen told them there is a gentleman here who is going to drive them to work. You would hear the sound of the waves, the things that were said, the waves on the rocks. You would have a drink. “I will always take care of you afterwards.” You would smell the normal things - food, there would be speaking and singing and the smell of people eating and happiness. If you do this properly it will all be right. They dream of getting more of what they wanted. They are dreaming of a man. “They are guys aren’t they?“ They are dreaming of retirement. While they are on a swing they are dreaming that dream came true for Doreen, but not that particular one. Margaret said “their dreams will come true”.
