Yar, yar, ya got that right, Cap’n,” returned his faithful and once jocund first mate, Rummy, now hunkered down as he, too, braved the ceaseless wrath of the oncoming tempest. Just then yet another mountain-size wave, black ......
The Florida manatee has fooled us all for ages. We thought it was as slow to cogitate as its sweet potato” body is to move. Never did the clever “sea cow” let on that it’s actually as brainy as, or perhaps even brainier than, a somersaulting dolphin.
