    Good Morning, everyone!

    Well, as I stated yesterday, this whole “Year without a Summer” thing sounds intriguing.

    We’ll see tomorrow.

    I’m pretty sure Dr. Wonmug is a descendant of Foozy’s.

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 19 “The Savage Land of Promise”(38) 7/15/2013 Monday

    CIO Walsh is unhappy at the news that his teams didn’t find the colonists or the intruders. Even Drexler hasn’t punched the button. What is going on here? He can’t for a moment let this go on. Commander Til is desperate to get this job done right, he doesn’t need Walsh to be breathing down his neck. His secretary alerts him to the impending arrival of some military inspector NOW. What a pain he thinks,
    just while they are homing in on the intruders!Alley in the mean time comes out of his theta state as the muzak stops and the chime accompanied by a lilting female voice telling him he has “arrived at your destination, have a nice day.”

    Looks like what passes for a PFC in the corporate military stood at attention and saluted. Alley returned it, putting on his hat so that his differences might not startle. He doesn’t need them agitated,however as he found out it is too late for that. Milling around like zat bugs with a cave bear in their hive. Buzzing angry and looking to shock anything near.

    So to look officious, Alley took a stern look, and started barking questions to get action. “What is going on here? Is there some sort of emergency I need to be told about?” He groused. The noncoms jumped to it and told their boss who told their boss till it reached CIO Walsh, and maybe Dr. Trask as well.

    Zats are a type of prehistoric insect with a kind-of-stinger but it gives an electric jolt instead of a puncture. Their bodies would light up as well, part of their communications method. Zats will zap is well known because of Doc Wonmug’s time-travel devices and so many who have used them to see the prehistoric times for themselves. At least one functioning colony is in the living archaeological wing of
    the Chicago Natural History Museum being studied. Fossils are known but incomplete, living specimens are better at revealing their secrets. Zats are distantly related to the Stone flies.

    Ok, I got my migrations mixed up, a couple of days I stated the Irish Potato Famine, and migration was caused the 1816 lack of summer, oops, Wrong migration.
    .
    It was the American Western Migration that was started by Eighteen Hundred and Froze to Death.

    I need to check my brain files.

    A great summer morning to the Benders and readers of Alley Oop. It’s Monday and a great day to ponders the effects
    of the year without a summer (1816). Consider Thomas
    Jefferson, the second president of the United States
    (1801-1809) At the end of his presidency, he retired to his
    beloved Monticello in Virginia to live out the rest of his days.
    Unfortunately, because of lavish spending, he was beset
    by financial woes for the rest of his life (Died 1826). 1816
    didn’t help. Mr Jefferson’s cash crops of wheat and
    tobacco failed that year because of the lack of sunlight sending him further into debt. The food crops to feed his
    plantation of slaves failed also.

    The Little Prince cleaned his volcanos daily,… ours are too big to clean and cause us no end of trouble

    The effect wasn’t just the USA and western Yerp. It was worldwide.

    Doc Wonmug should be happy that he isn’t asked to go back in time to look at Mount Toba, also in the Indonesian archipelago, now a lake 30 mi long, 10 mi wide and about a mile deep. It was part of a caldera (like Yellowstone) and exploded about 70,000 years ago. It covered the Earth in a thick pall of debris that killed off plant life and animal life. Humans who had spread already from Africa about 30,000 years before began to die out too. It is estimated that maybe 6,000 individuals of the original stock survived in mother Africa. Tigers too reached a “bottleneck” and nearly died out.

    It could happen again at any time. When it does the USA will be finished. Yellowstone monitors measure tremors, surface temperatures etc.

    Reminds me of the old saw about the lecturer who predicted that the world would end in about 6 billion years. An tremulous voice queried from that back, “HOW many years?” "6 billion years., he repeated. “Oh, thank God! I thought you said MILLION!”

    Dr. Wonmug could also be an antecedent of the Wizer. Maybe, even his father.

    Look at your own hand. See all the lines on it? That’s what’s on Wooley’s hand.

    Good morning Benders and all. Today is another slow Monday with a repeat of yesterday’s action. But at least we are going to have a time travel story since the time machine was fixed last Christmas.

    Okay, you got your (bleep)ing time-travel story. Happy. now? Gonna stop b*tching now?
