    Top of the Morning, all!

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

    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!

    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.

    And, yes, Larry, you can count me in.
    GoComics has been banning Night-Gaunt and Gweedo a few times already this year.
    BTW I’m formerly known as Teresa, but my hubby is paranoid about putting too much info on line.

    Good morning Benders and readers of Alley Oop. Today
    we are seeing a different Alley Oop. Because he wasn’t the one to rescue Ooola, but rather Pterry Ooola’s new friend,
    Alley’s acting out of sorts with the attitude of who cares.
    Thanks for the laugh from larryf77 with the fantasy of
    swooping in and taking over the strip from the Benders. I needed a good Friday laugh.
    Thought for the day
    Some say that hate is the opposite of love. I would say
    cold indifference is the opposite. No longer caring or communicating are the signs leading to the death knell
    of a relationship. Beware Alley the path you are walking.

    I guess the stupid leaves are the permanent background now. 12 days in a row so far.

    Adventures usually begin with somebody getting their feelings hurt. This is the one thing that I just don’t like about the modern Alley Oop.

    It’s cool that the Benders have made Oop such a jackass.
