    Welcome, fellas!

    As we saw from Sunday’s preview, Foozy offers pretty good advice.

    Hope Alley takes advantage of it.

    Ooola continues her descent to the bottom of the quicksand pit.
    Nobody had seen her go under. She is fully submerged. There is no hope of being rescued.
    It is black and quiet, as the quicksand has muffled her ears, and will soon fill her lungs for permanent residency.

    In her mind she is saying good-bye to all that she loved, especially Alley Oop. He had asked her to marry him and she had put him on hold. If only…

    She comes to rest gently on the bottom and sinks no more, her eyes and mouth still tightly closed, her last breath waning.
    It is here that she will wait for death, alone with her thoughts, and the corpses of the other creatures that have perished here before her.
    It seems death is imminent. How can anyone hope to escape?
    And then a thought comes to her oxygen-dwindling mind.

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 21 “Dead To Rites” (112) 6/9/2014 Monday

    Spot lights start shining down as first news copters, including John’s own, and the arrival of armed police copters just made things more interesting.
    In the lead van, the Brown Cell Leader isn’t very happy. They are being followed and now by news and armed-to-the-teeth MH-6B police copters! Won’t be long as the special flashers on top freeze them and then they crash. For some reason the Green Hornet, nor those two military motor bikes, “Rumblers” he recalls they call them, are immune to its effects.
    Something must be done to alter the
    frequency to start affecting their adversaries or they will not have a success here. They still need to exit out of here. He radios the end van to use the RPGs.
    The news reports from the helicopter has already stopped. Soon they will crash.

    Morning, Oopsters.
    The creepy floating leaves have color in them now!

    Not so creepy, nor floating in Panel 1.

    Actually, i don’t really regard them as creepy, just an indication that Alley and Foozy are standing beneath a tree branch, just can’t see the wood the leaves are attached to. But we all have our interpretations.

    Good Morning Benders and readers of Alley Oop.
    I was hoping Foozy would confront Alley more and make
    think about his narcissistic attitudes him.
    After the first panel he should have said

    Until you know the pain you cause
    that dig in Ooola like sharpened claws,

    you cannot make it right with her
    when her words to you are just a blur.

    With heart not pride please give thought
    to soothe like salve a soul made distraught.

    Truths then discovered you now can deal
    with a maddened Ooola whose heart must heal.

    (Now Foozies panel 2 advice)
    Try to find a way to show
    The way you feel Just let her know.

    Thought “When wounds are healed by love,
    The scars are beautiful.”

    Worthwhile. The guy always seems to put his foot in it.

    Perfect Present Backfires:
    vacuum cleaner
    the budget busting piece of jewelry
    Homer’s bowling ball
    the sonnet comparing her to last girlfriend
    allergen carrying flowers
    her pix (as taken by DMV)
    his pix as taken by anyone
    last second guests
    guest less picnics
    picnics with plenty of guests
    a hug
    no hug
    ♫ ♪♫OOOOOOO she never gives up,
    and she never gives in,
    she just changes her mind ♪♫

    That’s Jacks idea of putting in some extra effort.

    If only the leaves didn’t randomly appear and disappear whether or not there are any trees around.

    And sometimes float all around the characters heads.

    And resemble maple leaves even when Jack does show them under a tree that has a completely different kind of leaf.

    To each his or her own. Sorry if our stories are too spicy for you. Just enjoy the pap that is the Benders watered down for your delicate condition.
