It was while looking for some more that the accident happened, which put an end to gums, fossil hunting forever. He had climbed a mountain after a particular specimen and he slipped and fell hundreds of feet on. Crushed his leg so badly that he had to have it taken off. You would have thought that a man who lived for nothing but fossils would have felt there was little left to do when he couldn't go and look for them anymore. But gum wasn't that sort of man. I have travelled a lot on land, my dear. He said to Sylvia, but very little. But I see now I shall really see the world. And maybe I'll be finding something interesting to bring back. There's no need to do that, Sir. Nana broken firmly. The house's full enough as it is. We don't want a lot Carved elephants. That's about the place. Carved elephants. Gum gave Nana a scornful look. The world is full of in Trans man's woman. Any of which I might bring home. And you talk to me of carved elephants. Banana held her ground. All right, sir, I'm sure I'm pleased. You should see these entrance mints, as you call them, but you let them bide. We want nothing more in this house. The entrance men that gum actually brought home was bawling. The ship on which he was travelling struck an iceberg and all the passengers had to take to the boats. In the night, one of the boats filled with water and the passengers were thrown into the sea. Gumbs boat went to the rescue, but by the time it got there, everybody was drowned except a baby who was lying cooing happily on a lifebelt.
