    Top of the Morning, all!

    Foozy playing psychoanalyst ought to be a nice carrer move for him.

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 21 “Dead To Rites” (109) 6/6/2014 Friday

    What cars that are on the road are going out of control or cruising on as their drivers are paralyzed and insensate by the syncopating yellow hued flashes. A cunning weapon devised by a criminal genius. Now in the hands of another criminal genius aka Axel Nasti, now Grand Leader of Luaxana. The three vans with their precious booty, the safe that may contain the diary of Morgan Midas, a 19th century alchemist and criminal. Created a means of distilling diamonds into an elixir that can turn anyone into a real life version of The Flash or other comic book super
    speed powered being.(He used it to create sensational crimes in the 1870’s. Federal Agents James T. West and Artemis Gordon stopped him. Midas burnt to cinders.)

    Unlike the Rumblers, the more ponderous Black Beauty has to weave in and out dodging the vehicles and spend most of their time on the shoulder. The UAV of the Hornet, his eye in the sky, gives him several views including a top down grid and all the vehicles on one of the screens. Kato has a similar one.
    “You see them?” Kato asks.
    “Yes, two more like those war bikes coming up on us fast.” (Alley and Ooola.)

    What does Alley’s dismissive reaction tell us? He is an ingrate. I guess this is the Benders giving us a flaw in our hero.

    Sheldon cannot make himself understood.
    How can he get Kluco to recognize him? And tell him what’s going on?
    Who is this second robot and how did it come to pass that they are burying a Glarb? Sheldon is full of questions, but physically, can only chirp. He thinks about this – there has to be a way.
    “Help me push the dirt back and fill this hole.”

    Tica and Kluco quickly cover Corrigan’s grave and he pats the dirt down with the shovel, then puts some debris and tarp and whatever is around over it.
    “That should buy us some time.”
    “Come on, we better get out of here,” Tica urges.

    Sheldon’s got an idea. He will write the chemical symbol for Beryllium in the dirt. Everyone knows that’s his favorite element. He will write a little “4” next to it designating its atomic number, AND the same month that Sheldon was born in, April! That should be a clear sign that he’s Sheldon inside this Tribble body.

    No, wait…he should write a three dimensional quadratic equation that demonstrates his theory (now proven) of hyperspace. And then off to the side he can write one of his worm-hole equations.

    No, no, no…he should solve the Bose-Einsteinian condensate equation complete with his own take on string theory’s influence on quantum physics where everything is reduced to a unison state harboring identical molecular anagrams at two billionths of a degree above absolute zero! Yes that it!! That’s what he should write in the sand – so there will be no question about it, that it’s him, Sheldon Cooper.

    Wait where are they going?
    Tica and Kluco are leaving, and quickly!
    Gweedin-Sheldon goes after them, chirping like crazy.
    They stop and turn around. What is it with this animal?
    “I guess he’s really fond of you?” Tica suggests.
    “That is strange,” admits Kluco. He bends down to pet the Tribble.
    Sheldon begins solving the Bose-Einstein condensate equation in the sand.
    “Oh, I guess he’s over me. I think he’s going to dig. Come on, we better hurry along.” They start to go.

    Damn – maybe I should just write “I am Sheldon” he finally thinks to himself!

    Gweedin-Sheldon chirps after them.
    “Here he comes again,” says Tica.
    “Listen little fella, we’re on a mission to find our friends, and we have to be careful about being seen. You can tag along with us only if you’re quiet. ” Kluco tries to explain.
    This frustrates Sheldon even more, and they turn to go and he follows them, quietly this time, although it kills him not to chirp and solve equations. Hopefully he’ll get his chance soon.

    I see we’re still treading water here.

    Why am I reposting this stuff?
    To see if anybody is interested in rereading this epic tale! I think the Benders may be retiring soon and I want to put myself out there as a possible replacement.

    I have excellent stories ready to go, and possibly an artist to work with, if given the chance!

    Fantastic stuff, Larry!
    Others who have not read Larry’s story about Alley Oop and the Glarbs are really encouraged to follow it. It will have cliff-hangers galore!

    Thank you for reposting, larry, and I endorse you as the next Alley Oop author. You have the daily suspense that a serial needs to keep readers coming back for more.
    Will you be submitting story samples with artwork ?

    I do hope you have a chance of becoming the new writer. Too bad the Benders don’t seem to have any interest in this.

    Morning, Oopsters.
    How much longer is this stupid conversation going to go on?

    You captured Sheldon’s personality perfectly!
    I’ve always wanted to haul off and slap Sheldon.

    I hope Green Hornet and Kato know that the next 2 war bikes are carrying good guys. Does Alley and Ooola know about G.H. and Kato?
    With the bad guys having such extraordinary powers, how will our good guys ever get them? Also, one of the doctors on the Super Powered RV should have figured out a way to negate the effects of the paralyzing flashing lights. Have they? You’re doing good, Night-Gaunt.
