(From MMMarmel: "Tali and Millie are having an entertaining evening on
Spontoon taking hula lessons. They sure can shake it!
I rather suspect
Millie is going to be shaking it a bit more when she discovers
she's wandered too close to a tiki torch...
Sure hope that's not one

While on liberty, Millicent T. Mink & T. J. Foxx of the S.S. Athena encounter
Spontoon Island culture at a Casino Island art museum.

Shortly after the S.S. Athena left port and headed out for the Spontoon Islands
in the Pacific, Millie takes a brief break and starts working on
her latest article for a newspaper column she writes.

"During the long sea voyages aboard the S. S. Athena the crew needs to find things to do aside
from their assigned duties, otherwise other "Tasks" would be assigned for them.
(There's an Old Navy saying which goes; "Never volunteer for ANYTHING.")
Take the case of poor "Missy" who had clearing the bilges, painting the warning stanchions
 and swabbing the boat deck added to her daily tasks. Somehow a rumor got started that
the little Mouse Miss didn't like wearing undergarments in the warm confines of the inner spaces
of the ship, and "The Boys," being a fun loving and curious bunch decided to see for themselves
if this observation was true. Just as Missy was finishing up her task on the boat deck,
she paused atop a grate to enjoy the cooler, moving air venting up from below, and that's when
it was decided to purge the compressed air storage tanks using that vent. Missy ended up running
into her cabin, bolting the hatch, and yelling that the Athena was being run more like a three-ring
circus instead of a ship. This made for quite a curious entry into the ship's log that day."

"One pleasant day as the S. S. Athena was steaming towards the Spontoon Islands,
Mr. T. J. Foxx decided to pass the time before his next watch by sketching and doodling
while enjoying the cool breezes from off the No. 3 Cargo Hold hatch. He soon
found himself the center of attention of a small group of Female crew members
who took delight in teasing him, but also complimenting him on his drawing style.
Millie even got the little Vulpine to blush when she asked him if she could pose
for him in the nude, "Like any good Artist's model should." She was only
joking of course, but for awhile there, "Foxy" couldn't help but
let his imagination run away from him."

The Spontoon Island Althing regrets to report the death of
Russell "Rusty" Haller. He did commissioned art for some of the story
contributors, and generously shared some of his adventure art with this website.
He had begun to build stories on his own island in the Spontoon Archepelago.
He will be missed.
There is a tribute page of some of Rusty's Spontoonie art.

More information is here.
