      Oh goodness sakes, don’t ask!

      *starts having nightmares of every last limb on Babbagers being artificial*

      • Avariel Falcon Avariel Falcon December 6, 2010

        Its not so bad, all my limbs are artificial!

    Sounds like we need an operating theatre in New Babbage.

  8. Lans Starsider Lans Starsider December 6, 2010

    I think the new hospital in the Vernian has/will have one.

    • Blackberry Harvey Blackberry Harvey December 7, 2010

      It does indeed, and it is open to Drs. Watson, Kaligawa, and Sonnerstein, and Miss Artful is a registered nurse.  That is, she is listed in the register as a nurse.


      • LoPxie Artful LoPxie Artful December 7, 2010

        i do hope i know what i am doing, at least some of the time…    and i am quite convinced of the healing properties of cake…

        o! …and i helped the scientist perform an operation on doctor beck in steelhead, too!… before he died, that is

      • Naveen Bovarro Naveen Bovarro December 7, 2010

        How might I get myself on the register as a nurse, as well?

  9. Jimmy Branagh Jimmy Branagh December 6, 2010

    Oy ‘ope ‘ee got the roight leg …


    • Zaida Gearbox Zaida Gearbox December 6, 2010

      *looks horrified at that thought*

      • Mara Razor Mara Razor December 6, 2010

        Enough out of you two.  We’re talking about Dr. Watson not Hengest Whitfield (anyone seen him lately?).  I have complete confidence in his abilities.

        /me – hands Zaida  a handkercheif to stop her from wiping her nose on her skirt again.

      • Kristos Sonnerstein Kristos Sonnerstein December 6, 2010

        Don’t worry, Zaida. It went quite well. And I imagine Gadget could easily make a rather impressive artificial leg to replace it, or else we can all pitch in to get him one and I will gladly attach it for him. Dr. Kaligawa and Dr. Watson are very competent. Nat is well taken care of in Dr. Kaligawa’s clinic. ::pats the dear little girl on the head::

      ((Nah, it was the left… *badum tsch* … oh come on, somebody had to!))

  10. Zaida Gearbox Zaida Gearbox December 6, 2010

    *looks at the small piece of cloth curiously*  What dis for?  To make a dress for mah dolly?

  11. LoPxie Artful LoPxie Artful December 6, 2010

    do get well soon, nat…

    (leaves nat a card while he sleeps, with rather a lot of tinsel glued on it and some chocolate cake, to make him feel quite better)

    *sneaks in and places a plate of cookies by the poor ‘un’s bed*


  13. Avariel Falcon Avariel Falcon December 7, 2010

    *goes to visit Nat but gets lost and falls down a hole someone left open in the road. After extracting herself ends up sending a clockwork postman with a jar of tasty humbugs*
