    Good morning, Alleygators and Oopsters!

    Now THAT’s what I call a denouement!

    …. more of the same … more leaves … etc… .. . etc… and the 3-stooge trialogue continues (as predicted days ago) ….
    ..
    Let’s see, today is yesterday’s tomorrow, so tomorrow I guess the Benders will have Wizer rehash what everyone saw the day after yesterday?

    I like the way the leaves are drawn. They look much more realistic than the way trees are drawn in most comic strips.

    How much longer will this conversation continue, for goodness sake?

    Yeah, I especially liked the separate story arcs for weekdays and Sundays.

    Wizzer is telling the truth as he remembers it. Sometimes, we unknowingly color a story because we do not wnant to admit our poor motives or errors.

    A silly story that went way too long followed by way too long dialogue repeating the story that went on way too long.

    Good Morning to the Benders and readers of Alley Oop.
    The Wizer is still too proud to admit that he had lost control of the dino pack way before the potion had it’s effectiveness.
    Guz in the first panel has lost his anger and is now joking
    with the Wizer. I just hope Guz doesn’t do a typical liberal
    response and give the Wizer a get out of the pits pardon
    before he is held responsible for what he has done.

    I’m re-reading Alley Oop from back when it started in 1934. Wow! You talk about an awesome comic strip!

    In line with something Night-Gaunt49 said a while back, Wizer has the power to become an always troublesome foe.
    -
    Better to keep him close, where he might be a sometimes helpful friend.
    -
    Not sure who said it but, “Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.”

    The oldest credits seem to go to Sun-tzu, a Chinese general & military strategist who lived around 400 BC. He is one of the oldest authors of a NY Times Best Seller (2001).
