In the forenoon the vessel passed Highland Light, and before night noddy saw the last of the land.
noddy drew a bucket of water at the pier, and carried it into the boat-house.
But noddy was not at homeat least, that is what the maid said who answered Jerrys ring.
"I am going to take care of myself, sir," said noddy, with easy indifference.
They did not belong to the company, and noddy was quite sure he had often seen them in Whitestone.
But she could not expose noddy to any penalty which he did not deserve.

noddy reached the Glen, and no sound of pursuers could be heard.

"I'm at home in that," replied noddy, throwing off his jacket.
/nod'ee/ [UK: from the children's books] 1. Small and un-useful, but demonstrating a point. Noddy programs are often written by people learning a new language or system. The archetypal noddy program is hello, world. Noddy code may be used to demonstrate a feature or bug of a compiler. May be used of real hardware or software to imply that it isn't worth using. "This editor's a bit noddy."
2. A program that is more or less instant to produce. In this use, the term does not necessarily connote uselessness, but describes a hack sufficiently trivial that it can be written and debugged while carrying on (and during the space of) a normal conversation. "I'll just throw together a noddy awk script to dump all the first fields." In North America this might be called a mickey mouse program. See toy program.
3. A simple (hence the name) language to handle text and interaction on the Memotech home computer. Has died with the machine.
