    Good Morning, fellow readers!

    Well, I certainly had a feeling that ram would be a (if you’ll pardon the pun) pain on Alley’s backside.

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 20 “The Coup in Moo Falls Mainly on Oop”(50) 10/2/2013 Wednesday

    When Dinny is calm his skin color is a light lavender, when he is angry it becomes a bilious reddish-orange. Right now he is of two colors since he looked back and saw one of the xooloos not only on his back but crawling toward his head! So the red-orange color started flaring on his face and upper back legs as he continues to run but not so hard as before. Alley is there to take care of it.

    “I’m gonna have fun belting you out the park ugly!” Alley said as he was deciding where to hit the thing as it made those ear hurting whooping screams and gurgling yells.

    The long second pair of legs after the crab-claw ones helps to maneuver the beast as it struck with those claws on those long legs-turned-into-arms slashes at him. He bats with his club at each one.

    Frustrated, Alley didn’t want to dilly dally with the smelly musty beast but the xooloos are fast despite their unlikely collection of hairy legs.

    Wish this had been a surprise instead of a slow obvious set up.

    It was foreshadowing — one of the basics of good storytelling. If it weren’t there, some people would be complaining that the goat just came out of nowhere.

    Well …this does not look good. He needs
    to climb down to the ledge where the little
    plant is at. Not sure about the logistics..
    I.e. exactly how close is this ledge, is
    it safe..(but then, none of this is…)weight
    bearing, etc..will uprooting the plant from
    the ledge cause it to slip (is
    it stable, etc..)

    Meanwhile back at the ranch. this is just to reach the plant. The goat is another story; Alley does not know
    he is there.

    Looks Like Billy Goat Gruff is preparing to help Alley cross the bridge about how to get down off that ledge sooner than Alley expected.

    A lesson here: never butt into the business of other eras.

    Kasper… right on, I too have never heard a billy OR a ram (as some called it) growl… lots of other threatening sounds do emanate but both the goat and sheep males depend more on action than warnings… in my rural experience.

    Nah, The surprise will come next month when the goat charges, misses Oop, and goes over the cliff.

    If a goat is introduced in Act 1, it will butt someone (or eat a tin can) by Act 3.
