    Good Morning, fellas!

    Well, it looks like Mary’s getting ideas . . .

    . . . even if she doesn’t realize it.

    Not bad!

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 20 “The Coup in Moo Falls Mainly on Oop”(30) 9/13/2013 Friday

    Bosc is on his knees holding his shattered hand. He did not scream, he just looks stunned. Ubar is ready to make mincemeat out of Alley. (Alley had some mincemeat pie in Mississippi back in 1857.)≠

    Alley takes the boat hook part he has in his hand and throws it at Ubar who bats it away. Unfortunately some of his Sharkacon teeth are broken off his club in doing so.

    In the mean time Dinny in his orange-red mode is snapping at the tentacles the fellasaur lashes out at him with and trying to position himself to swipe with his own tail.
    “Good boy Dinny, will be there soon boy.” Alley said under his breath.

    Up the river with Alley Oop
    V. T. Hamlin’s Alley Oop goes back to the South before the Civil War, meets and runs afoul of gambler Texas Jack East, wins a riverboat and loses it in this time travel sequence from 1957. As I’ve mentioned before, Alley Oop is one of my favorite comic strips. Strips shown are from February 13, 1957 to May 2, 1957.

    Morning, Oopsters.
    Alley doesn’t get it. Plants don’t bloom because the calendar says that it’s time to bloom. Plants don’t read calendars. Plants bloom when the climatic conditions are right for them to bloom.

    So Oop digs up a small amount of dirt to fill that little vial and Mary thinks they buried a body. What kind of body? A Barbie doll?

    Can this plot move any slower?

    Good Morning Benders, John Wooley, and readers of Alley
    Oop. So, per Alley, they will walk until they find a plant.
    Right now they are on a plateau of a mountain. If it encircles
    the mountain, they will eventually get back to where they started. I hope there are signs pointing to paths, whether
    they are going up or down the mountain, or they might end up on the top of the mountain. Doc is a walking encyclopedia but worthless in suggesting where to
    walk to next. Alley just remembers, walk until find plant.

    Now that the Barbie Doll is burried and the calander still says, “Summer”, don’t you think it would be a good idea to move down the hill and fine leafs and life on a lower altitude ?

    @Fuddy Duddy

    I don’t know why it changed because it worked correctly before. But then they have been mucking me up. Did you use the URL I left?
    I just tried it again and it works for me. I don’t understand why it is being this difficult today.

    I suspect that Fuddy Duddy simply failed to use the ENTIRE URL … probably didn’t use the part on the second line
