My, how your children have grown, Stilly!
I should point out that I know all about Amos and plan to publish a book by that title, "All About Amos." Few know, for example, about his life as the skipper of MV Croesus, a catamaran as large as a skyscraper (on its side). Of how he sailed her to Les Isles Noires and there rescued a very wealthy heiress from A Fate Worse Than Death, or how he defeated the villainous Wilberforce Glovedfinger in s shouting match in a seedy bar on the Ouagadougou waterfront. And who can forget his famous self-introduction to Miss Pennypenny, "Amos. Call me Amos. I forgot my last name. Shaken, not pureed."? I know how he drove Croesus onto a reef in the Barents Sea, greatly annoying the sailors working the sails in Erbus, and was trapped in the ice with Shackleford near Atafu -- Irma Shackleford, known throughout the maritime world as "Cap'n Cruella." Oh, I know all about Amos. My book will be out soon; watch for it on the NYT Best Sellers List.
