    Can’t believe Alice would do that.

    No matter what, can’t picture Philo relaxed, particularly with Alice in the room.

      Pssst! Just between you and me: The title pages are lies, damn dirty lies! Either that, or they hide a deeper, figurative truth ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Hmmm…. Like the fact that Charlie is in Charge? That’s the most likely reason for Roddy looking so disgusted.

        Who is the person in the top hat?

        • mvandinter says:

          The man in the top hat is Captain Eaton, who you’ll see a great deal of in Chapter 2.

            oh, okay. At least I recognized the piano. Too bad it couldn’t have been a Harpsichord…

            I saw on TV (which therefore makes it true) that ship’s captains are authorized to perform marriage ceremonies. I assume this applies to captains of giant drill ships. In case there’s a need for such things.

              You are correct, Sir… on numerous points, especially about everything on TV being true ๐Ÿ˜‰

              Welcome to the conversation, Number 6!

          We all knew Charlie was piloting this boat from the start. As it should be!

    20000 Leagues Under the English Channel.
    (ยด๏ผ›ะด๏ผ›`) No Kirk Douglas to help Alice sing It’s a Whale of a Tale though?

    But like a man you always bring your little wife along?

    • mvandinter says:

      It’s a metaphor for my own life… including bringing the kids along against my better judgement!
