    I must admit, Alley’s no fool. I mean, who wants to getvin Umpa’s way.

    Guz should be happy he didn’t toss her into the Pit.

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 19 “The Savage Land of Promise”(32) 7/9/2013 Tuesday

    General Mann has set it up for Alley to go to inspect the base and also visit the TexCom facility as well under the guise of an inspection tour. (He does know something about animal life living in prehistoric times. Flimsy but Gen. Mann got it through.)
    In the meantime surveillance is up at the Land of Promise as Bood Alex has increased the remote sensing in the areas around and in the colonist areas. Most of it unobtrusive but still prevalent. Their people pulling long hours even to rigging sensors to register energy pulses outside of the normal ones being used.
    “Now Alley you know this is just something I created to get you there, other than that you will be on your own. You’ll need to contact the colonists and interview them to find out what-is-what and then contact us here on that special scrambled frequency radio we give you. Got it?”
    “Yes sir, sir, tilt’n at windmills, I’m your man.” Alley said grinning and saluting the somber General. (He should have met the real Don Quixote. What a tilter he was!)
    “Right soldier, check your kit and fall in.” Gen. Mann replied returning the salute.

    Alley is now wearing a green armband with a graphic symbol of an eye looking at saluting men to represent an inspector to go with his dark blue BDU. He will be leaving around 07:00 that evening.

    The news that someone is coming to inspect the military base and “visit” them doesn’t sit well with CIO Walsh, but they will just scrutinize this person more closely. Nothing they can do can stop TexCom from legally operating on this alien world now. The legal aspects have been covered by their team of lawyers and everyone here knew what they were doing when they signed binding contracts. There is
    nothing short of an earth quake or volcano can stop them from conquering this planet one patch at a time.

    Outside the perimeter the life of the planet isn’t happy either. Some of them are not ignoring the death then replacement of the forest they live by and in. The furry, spiky Moongaboons who use their radial arms to swing and climb much faster than Terran monkeys having more limbs and eyes and brains to zip about in three dimensions in and around the limbs of the gigantic trees that stud the forests of that Savage Planet. Good eating, even by humans, if you can catch them. Some of the trees are good at catching and eating them too when the brachiating tree predators can’t reach them.

    Women have the same rights as men in Moo. At one time Ooola was Grand Wizer too. And Upmateetle is Queen after all. This whole farce is a good time waster. No important stories to see here.
    However maybe if the women had done this to the men, women would have been liberated in 1776 instead of 1920. 1890 in Wyoming.

    Women are the ‘weaker sex’. Proved here by timid little Oompa…….er…maybe not….

    That’s very true. In fact, there was one story where Ooola actually became ruling monarch.

    Welcome back, Night-Gaunt! We missed ya!

    Re your “alternate” story:

    What happened to “Panel One,” “Panel Two,” and so on?

    It must be remembered that it was Eenie that was such a terror and she even organized all the women against the men of Moo. If it hadn’t have been for a flood that washed her and her sinister influence away who knows what she could have done.
    Females in my eyes are the complementary sex. They complete us and we complete them. But the fit isn’t always the best one possible.

    Oop is Gus’ bodyguard? Does Gus realize his bodyguard beat him up and threw him in the pit? Maybe Gus should consider finding a new bodyguard.

    Ah ha! It is good to see Umpa has the magic ability to have things apear in her hands when she needs them. Yesterday running with a bone to to wack Guz. Today a previous tomatoe is hitting Guz while she is empty handed and then she is about to though a second tomatoe. Or may be there is only one tomatoe and the panels are out of order.

    Any police officer will tell you that the last type of call they want to get is a domestic disturbance call. The are totally unpredictable and get violent in a hurry, and the violence often gets directed at the police officers trying to de-fuse them.
