    Agreed. He needs to eat some bearcat stew and man the heck up. (Bearcats are extinct, like trilobites.)

    Ava is escorting Lola and Ooola around the mall.

    “Girls, you are going to love this store!” Ava exclaims as she leads them to her favorite shoe store.

    Neither of them has ever been in a mall before and they are overwhelmed.

    “So many people,” remarks Lola.

    “And so many wonderful things to get,” says Ooola.

    “Are you sure it’s safe in here?” Lola asks Ava.

    “Of course, Lola! Everybody in here has their mind on shopping, same as us. What could happen in a mall? Come on, there it is!” she points out the store she’s been looking for.
    . .

    Lola looks at the shoe store and off to the right notices another store with a beautiful display window and some cute toy trolls with little black hats at the front door bidding anyone welcome.

    Larry’s Story – Trolls with black hats?
    The Benders’ Story – I do not like this wimpy rendition of Alley Oop’s character by the Benders!

    To reiterate: he can send Lola with Hamid—TWO problems solved permanently!

    Larry, Your story moves along briskly and leaves one wondering what’s going to happen next. Everything the other story doesn’t!

    Larry, Thanks for writing the alternative storyline. I love it! It moves at a great pace and keeps me coming back to this comic. The Benders move too slow

    To All,
    While I am enjoying Larry’s story very much, one cannot compare it to a two or even three panel comic strip. Larry’s stories would consume way more than two panels a day. If the artwork were included the story would have to slow down considerably. Not suggesting you slow down your story Larry, just pointing out to others the comparison isn’t valid.

    Larry has gone from writing like Rod Sterling to Stephen King!

    So, how is sending Lola to a prehistoric Middle Eastern country going to solve the problem of getting her back to her grieving husband on Earth 2?

    Benders make us wonder if anything will ever happen.
