    Good Morning, Fellow Readers Out There!

    I hadn’t noticed before, but Alley did get the leaf before the ibex hit him.

    Hope Alley survived the fall.

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 20 “The Coup in Moo Falls Mainly on Oop”(62) 10/14/2013 Monday

    Eeny enjoyed another round of fighting and killing with lots of maiming in the arena. But it is beginning to pall. Maybe she needs to think up another way to entertain and maintain control. Or she could stop it for the time being. Maybe go back and spend some time in Lem or Aswalla. But before any of that Alley Oop must be brought to justice. It is the only way, Eeny figures, that Wootietoot will be back to her old self and remove a big problem at the same time. Killing two dinosaurs at the same time! Eeny smiled at the thought.

    Alley was riding Dinny moving now to the way around the other side of occupied Moo. See if he could come across anything that would tell him where the rebels may be. But considering how well they have hidden from Eeny and her hairshirt soldiers it may be harder for him than usual since they will be hiding their tracks.

    Imagine, Alley and Doc could have just walked down hill and found plenty of plant life to sample. But the Benders Alley Oop does things the harder way than needed. Helps to move the plot along it seems.

    I have a feeling Mary will see a defibrillator in action.

    Just Googled “Alpine ibex” – the horns get MUCH larger than the ones that bonked Oop. Ouch!

    Between ornery Alpine ibex and Pamplona, I don’t know which one I’d pick…

    As I stated yesterday — he’s survived several bonkings by (gangs of) Moo-era Hooligans, and considerabe numbers of falls.

    I noticed in his hand he did manage to get a leaf.

    I must have missed something. What obvious problem are you referring too? Why do you call the plan to go down the mountain poorly thought out? I’m not trying to start a big ugly argument. I just want to hear your thoughts on this.

    I don’t know what LoboGrande had in mind and hope he will answer himself. But I’ll hazard a guess that they didn’t want to run into people. Interacting with people might have the effect of influencing history. With this year of no summer, how do we know there’s any more vegetation at the lower altitude?

    Well, you have to admit ‘oblivious to the obvious’ has a nice ring to it. I think El BO just likes to huff and puff.

    So – Alley made it down faster than he had anticipated. And only 17 days left till Hallowe’en. Mary’s inspiration should be right around the corner. The question is – WHICH corner?

    Maybe this is how the Benders end the strip—Oop is dead. Of course, they could carry on another week with Doc taking Oop back to Moo.

    Hey LocoPedo! If Night-Gaunt wants to repeat himself, why is it your business? Are you the official comment guardian?


    And I suppose you are?

    The coffin corner?
    Jack Horner’s corner?
    Bullwinkle’s Corner?

    I have asked several times about your “credentials”
    You have alluded to knowledge of inside information on the creation of this comic strip. I’m just wanting to know what makes you so “special” as to know the background.

    Bud,
    Sometimes The sunday strip is simply a recap of thw previous week and a new panel appears Monday. Other times, the Sunbday Recap will have a “Preview” of Monday’s strip. Today’s case is the latter.

    AKHenderson… The defib has been mentioned ever since Oop climed the cliff. But the Info on the Goat is interesting.
