    Good Morning to everyone reading this strip . . .

    Doc doesn’t know it yet, but he’s about to give Mary one more bit of inspiration.

    I definitely like where this is going.

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 20 “The Coup in Moo Falls Mainly on Oop”(65) 10/17/2013 Thursday

    Alley and Dinny have escaped the Arena of Death where the twin queens Eeny and Wootietoot reign over Moo, Lem, Aswalla,Jerooly and Kam.

    His search for the rebels who aided his escape may have become fruitful when ice beams came out of the sky. It is an Aswalla hairshirt on an ice bird sending cold blasts to freeze him then take him back to Eeny and Wootietoot for bounty and praises.

    “Not happening!” Alley said grimly.

    Ootoo gets her snow bird to dive and fire so she can get Alley frozen in a block of ice to be carried away back to Moo.

    Medical science back then was not much above medicine men, maybe more dangerous. If he came prepared with emergency medical equipment all the better.

    Good Morning Benders, John Wooley, And readers of Alley Oop. A question to ask is why Mary Godwin would lie and
    say that she was married unless it was for convention’s
    sake. Still waiting to see what is in Doc’s bag of tricks.
    It may be tubes of atropine and adrenaline which are injected into the heart. With a heart massage the heart
    can be restarted.

    I wager that this conversation will drag on until Sunday before he defibrillates him.

    Starting the heart doesn’t mean it is over.
    What if he has internal injuries?

    Could it possibly be there is something regarding time travel in the bag?. Something that mysterious might inspire Mary !

    OK. Give me some time. I have to look through the archives to find it. Might take a couple days. I started looking last night and got up to 1940, but I may have been reading too fast. I’ll keep looking, but I even remember one story where Oop was in the Wild West and bad guys would fire their guns point blank at him and for one reason or another, not one bullet would hit him. It was explained that a time traveler simply cannot die outside of their own time frame.

    Not all gunshot wounds are fatal.

    She could probably run down there and back by the time Doc gets his bag open.

    Well, that makes as much sense as time travel.
    I’ll go with it.

    " It was explained that a time traveler simply cannot die outside of their own time frame."

    Interesting notion. So if I step into Doc’s time machine and go five minutes into the future, I’ll be invulnerable for the rest of my li… um, forever?

    We need to check the Dr Who archives for this theory.
