Anybody seen the ship?
'Well we could still turn around!' suggested Norma.
'Nonsense!' replied Captain Bill, 'it's only a light dusting!'
'But you can't see the deck anymore!' replied Norma, 'or the wheel......or Geraldine!'
'She's over there!' said Captain Bill and he pointed at Geraldine's upturned feet.
Norma pulled Geraldine from out of the snow are set her up straight.
'I've told Cyril to be more careful,' she said, 'but he still insists on skiing everywhere.'
'Look,' said Captain Bill,'I'm sure we'll soon be home, just so long as we keep on going in this direction.'
'Which direction would that be?' asked Norma, who knew full well which direction it was.
'North?' said Norma as she finished Captain Bill's sentence.
'Well it's never let us down in the past,' replied Captain Bill. 'Anyway, I'm off to my cabin for a while...........actually where is my cabin?'
And so Norma helped him look for it.
