Wont be any trouble, honest...
Welcome aboard, Malcolm, but judging by the leacherous leer on your Smiley Face, I'm not too sure that you won't be any trouble ---- but maybe you can teach us a thing or two? Putting you in charge of our next going ashore party.

About the Diving tender, surely Tmac transferred over the cloaking device?? We can then take Red for the ride she was looking forward to -- if she keeps her bikini on that will draw everyone's attention away from what we are doing anyway.
Oh Goodie, Rolls Royce here I come. I think with top off would draw more attention!

Empty? yeah right, I've heard that one before.

I've got form for scrounging stuff out of an 'empty' room...

Dammit, you locked it didn't you.

Lordy, you are a brave man, I would not attempt any access to Tmacs interstices without some trepidation.

Them knuckles aren't just mechanical blight, check his physiognomy.

Damn, I know I shouldn't have had Alphabet Soup for tea.

Farmer John, I am having problems with my SH account and have emailed admin and sent a private message to Steve. I realise that with the time difference I may not have a reply or solution until much later today. I have lost all private messages, in and out and don't seem to be receiving notifications

For everyone's protection I will off the GD till the problem is resolved. We don't want any cross contamination.

You mustn't meddle with his interstices. His trousesr might fall down.

With you being a nurse, and also with sister Eleff around, any cross contamination should be resolved with the usual injection of penecillin. (In the case of exterior contamination a bunch of cotton waste soaked in paraffin liberally applied should solve the problem.

Salvage job is a third party enterprise -- after contacting the chief assistant to the assistand chief on Varleys Satellite set-up -- we are required to meet with a Polish submarine in the channel between Moorea and Tahiti. We will know it is a Polish submarine because it will have it's screen door open. We will load 2 pallets of gold bullion from the sub during the night and then put into Pape'ete during the day. Berth arranged. All crew expected to go ashore for a complete pish-up. Sir William -- perhaps you could lend your Titanium credit card to Red as she's been such a good girl. (Well that's probably not what her mother would think, But!) That operation will be the best cover for the undertaking at hand. Absolutely no-one would think that such a bunch of drunken sailors would be sufficiently nefarious to engage in bullion laundering.

Destination for the "special" cargo is Taipei, Taiwan. Pay is in American dollars. Hopefully by the time we get there the Yankee Dollar will still be worth something?

Looking forward to a trip to the bars with all and sundried. There should be plenty of unaware maidens in Pape'ete as I don't think we've been there before.

Hi Tom, All seems now fixed with my glitch in the system so, HERE I AM. Now, Tom, I am a bit concerned about going to Tahiti Remember what happened to the crew of the Bounty when they went there. However I would be more than happy to be able to go ashore with a Titanium credit card. Happy days.

Sorry billyboy, it was when I sent the second message that I realised I had a problem with the system. I promise I will try not to repeat myself again, repeat myself.

Worked with a young lady years ago and the subject of holidaying in Tahiti came up.

I said that I could 'see' her in a couple of coconuts and a grass skirt. Couldn't get away with it these days of PC.
