Oct. 30 — Now Come On!

I do take out the Fire Brigade fire boat from time to time, to practice steering and using it.




And, I must admit, I’ll often take it on a swing near Dr. Obolensky’s observatory–not close enough to get into trouble (I think), but close enough to see if there’s anything going on.  And sure enough, this evening I spotted something new.




Just beyond the boat moored there, I saw a large sign.  I grabbed my binoculars and took a closer look…




Ooooooo!  I will *show* him harmless!

    This woman is clearly obsessed with Dr. O.   She deserves everything she gets.

      Don’t waste your time. He only has flavorless wheat biscuits, Wiggyfish and prune juice in his cupboard. And lard (which, I believe, he eats straight from the can as the wicked are wont to do).

    Thinks these trips out to Doc O’s lab are getting a little too suspicious.  I think something is in the air and it isn’t the smell of Tesla fried urchin.

        All this proves is how very little children know about matters of the heart.

          Not only that, it also provides yet more support for the theory that the heart knows no common sense.

    Well it’s nice, that means Miss Book can go and trash/sabotage the Dr O’s observatory without being bothered. Yay! Go Miss Book!

    Mr. Baroque – get in the City archives and find out if there is a precedent for this action!

        o, remember when we urchins thought we ought to secede, rather?.. there was much chatter about soporific cake to put the grownups to sleep, and then exploding things and such… tho’ then rather many of the urchin revolutionaries grew bored and we all went to the pub instead and had an awful lot of absynthe..

        i wonder if doctor obolenski ever tried his cake? perhaps it is why he is rather fed up and crabby after a long sleep, and then he put that sign there
