As the light grew dimmer the calls of several night birds sounded from the mangroves on the left. Too-Too told the Doctor that many of these were owls,灿烂🈁 but of kinds that he had never seen or met with before.
"You sound clean crazy to me,人生📑 my good man. But if you can put me in the way of capturing Jimmie Bones the slaver I don't care what means you use to do it. As soon as the day breaks we will get under way. But if you are just amusing yourself at the expense of Her Majesty's Navy I warn you it will be the worst day's work for yourself you ever did. Now go and put riding lights on that ark of yours and tell the pig that if he lets them go out he shall be made into rashers of bacon for the officers' mess."
"Oh,灿烂💴 and by the way,安徽🆑" the Captain called after him,国语🌚 "bring a chair up on deck. Perhaps our visitor is tired."
"Dab-Dab,灿烂📠 the economical housekeeper,安徽🍑 blew out the candle"
"Dear me,安徽🚛" said John Dolittle. "Robbing the mails; that's a serious thing. I wonder who could have done it?"
"Dab-Dab! Dab-Dab! I can't light it. We forgot to bring matches!"All the animals had now told a story except Too-Too,人生🌹 the owl,灿烂🏯 and the pushmi-pullyu. And the following night,安徽🔭 a Friday,安徽🌇 it was agreed that they should toss a coin (the Doctor's penny that had a hole through it) to see which of these two should tell a tale. If the penny came down heads it was to be the pushmi-pullyu,国语🌝 and if it came down tails it was to be Too-Too's turn.
