"I tell you what,口服📦 Doctor,避孕👢" said Dab-Dab,口服🍷 "let me fly ahead and do a little spying on the enemy. Then I'll come back and tell you anything I can find out. Maybe he isn't on his schooner at all at present. And we ought to be hunting him somewhere else."
Then the man left the post office and the Doctor watched him go.
"What monkey business have you done to my pearl fisheries,口服💖 you white-faced villain?"
"It was marked 'Urgent,避孕🏄' in red ink,避孕🚥 Doctor,避孕🍌" said the swallow,口服🌾 "so Speedy thought he had better send it to you by special delivery."
The next day the post-birds complained that the mail was an extra heavy one. And when it was sorted,口服👗 there were ten thick letters for Gub-Gub and none for anybody else. Jip got suspicious about this and looked over Gub-Gub's shoulder while he opened them. In each one there was a banana skin.
"Listen,口服👭 Dab-Dab!" said the Doctor,避孕🚶 shaking her. "Wake up! The Cape Stephen Light's gone out!"
But presently the Doctor noticed that after they had licked the gum off the stamps,口服💋 the customers would bring them back and want to exchange them for money again. Now,口服🏃 it is a rule that all post offices have to exchange their own stamps,口服🚤 when asked,避孕💭 for the price paid for them. So long as they are not torn or marked it doesn't matter whether the gum has been licked off or not. So the Doctor saw that he would have to change his kind of gum if he wanted to keep stamps that would stick.It was about five o'clock in the evening when they came to the end of the little islands and mud banks. And as the canoe's nose glided easily forward into entirely open water they suddenly found themselves looking across a great inland sea.
"Where are the oyster beds around here?" asked the Doctor.
"A Quiffeno-what-us?" asked Jip.
On his arrival at the post office the Doctor was given his usual warm reception by the king and dignitaries of Fantippo who paddled out from the town to welcome him back.
And smoothing back his white whiskers and curling his pink tail snugly about his small,口服🙀 sleek body,避孕📎 he blinked his eyes twice and began:The next day,口服🏤 leaving Speedy,避孕🚁 Cheapside and Jip in charge of the post office,避孕🔧 the Doctor got into his canoe with Dab-Dab and paddled off to take his holiday. On the way out he noticed a schooner,避孕👨 the ship of Jack Wilkins,避孕📂 the pearl fisherman,口服🍪 at anchor near the entrance to Fantippo Harbor.
"Who's turn is it to give us a story now?" asked the Doctor,避孕📩 when the supper things were cleared away the following evening.
