    I wouldn’t know about that, Alley . . .

    “Belo-Rada.” Nice name. You might consider naming the country after Bela Lugosi, the first actor to play Count Dracula on Broadway in 1927 and again on film in 1931.


    (ps) This is quite a story. You really should consider publishing it .

    Yeah, right here at the year end. Let’s hope you’re wrong.

    Good Morning Benders and all. Relaxing strip day. Per
    usual, today is a calm before the storm

    I think Firebrand1 is right and this is a lull before the storm. I certainly hope Night-Gaunt49 is wrong in his guess that the strip might be coming to an end. I’d hate to see a message on the 31st saying, “And this is where we leave our Alley Oop. For now …”

    That the strip may be ending has been worrying me since they talked about time travel messing things up. And now this. Hope it’s just another false alarm.

    Lets see….Lola is still on the wrong planet, O.L. Driller is still in jail, Zud is missing his wife, Wonmug is still in trouble with the FBI, Oscar’s integrity is still at stake….Yep, my work here is done.

    “… all crises are resolved forever” said Alley Oop ?
    What will we see tomorrow ?

    Belo-Rada? Sounds vaguely Slavic. If so, it could mean divine (literally white ) happiness? The “o” in the word Belo is confusing as I think it should be an “a” to agree in gender with the word “Rada” which ends in an “a”. So we would get Bela-Rada!

    Dinny is up to something. I don’t see the strip ending… too many loose ends.

    My comment from yesterday:
    “Reading Alley Oop, onecan understand why Schulz wouldn’t let anybody touch his strip after he died. Hamlin was probably okay with Graue taking over but he had no say in the decision – he didn’t own the strip. I still can’t fathom how either of the Benders were selected to take over for Graue. Jack was only a few years younger than Graue and is now over 80. Carole clearly cannot write. Several posters have said that at least they have kept Oop alive and that nobody would take over the strip if they left. That last statement is debatable but the first is flat out wrong. The real Alley Oop died a long time ago, killed by an uncaring syndicate at the hands of the Benders.”
