    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 21 “Dead To Rites” (122) 6/19/2014 Thursday

    Brown Cell Leader has a plan. Their aircraft has already been summoned and is flying to the coordinates he gave to pick them up so that they could get to a safe-house and open up that safe. The Green Hornet is gone, but it seems his UAV is lingering. “Do what you can and take out that drone!” He orders. In all three vans the passengers strap on and get their silenced MP-5’s and lean out of the side door or back door and look for it.
    Some distance away the Black Beauty is on the move leaving the vicinity. Watching where the vans go then shadow them via the transmitter.
    “Boss, looks like our Hornet Eye” has been spotted. They have their guns out."
    “Affirmative Kato, scanner is being retrieved.”
    Just in time to as several begin firing 5 shot bursts and one of the bullets nicks the outer ring of the lift fan assembly. It wobbles some but flies up and out of range.
    “I’ ll keep it just above tree top level and just far enough away from their range of fire. I wnat to see where they are going.”
    “So far the transmitter is still sending its signal,” Kato adds.
    The scanner shows that the MH-6M is still following the van convoy.

    ya think maybe he is not only socially inept but about as romantic as a street car?

    The ship arrives at its new destination and once again the crew must recover from the hyperspace skip. Kluco, always the first to recover, scans the instruments and cannot fathom their meaning. This couldn’t be right!!
    “Dr. Cooper, Dr. Cooper!!!”
    Sheldon is a little slower to recover, but is making his way over.
    “Okay, Kluco, I’m here, what is – GOOD LORD!!!”

    Sheldon and Kluco are looking at their current space coordinates with utter amazement.
    “How can this be??”
    “We’ve left the Milky Way?”
    “This can’t be right.”
    “Dr. Cooper, your modifications can’t be trusted to get us anywhere near our target!”
    “Oh, it’s just a little glitch. I can fix it.”
    “But we’ve left our galaxy!!”
    “Yeah, but not by too much. According to these readings we’re in Andromeda, just one galaxy over.”
    “ONLY ONE GALAXY OVER!! BUT THAT’S OVER TWO MILLION LIGHT YEARS!!”
    “I know. Isn’t it grand? Who could have ever envisioned it?”
    “Dr. Cooper we may all spend the rest of our days in space trying to get back. Even me, and my life span is 10,000 years!” exclaims Kluco.
    “Oh, don’t be such a drama queen,” Sheldon scolds him, “We’ve skipped this far I’m sure we can skip back. I just have to make a few adjustments.”

    Just then, the ship’s emergency system flickers on and off. The lights dim for a moment, the instruments spike and then return to normal.

    And in the distance can be seen the tiniest white dots that seem to be getting larger and larger very quickly.

    “Flowers from Dinny? Oh, how nice! Please go back and tell Dinny I’d love to go out with him!”

    As a consolation prize, Dinny has a snack. Alley still looks callous.

    Hyper space travel. Even a little mistake can have huge implications.

    The full-on hilarity reaches a gut-busting pitch in the continuing soap opera of “Ooola and Oop: Can This Relationship Be Saved? With a special guest appearance by the wacky Umpa!”

    wait, just cue the cheesy laugh track.

    Good Morning Benders and readers of Alley Oop around the world. Alley and Umpa haven’t been on good terms with each other for a long time, mostly because of the way he treats Ooola. Alley didn’t make any points when he admitted
    that Dinny picked the flowers (after tasting them) that he gave to Ooola. Blaming Dinny for how bad the flowers just
    digs Alley’s hole deeper and deeper. It’s really a good thing
    that Alley and Ooola didn’t get married a few years ago. No
    man is less ready to make a commitment.
    Thought – Benjamin Franklin gave us the proverb “Honesty
    is the best policy”. Alley would have done better to at least say “Here’s some flowers, Dinny picked them to give to you.
    I was in such a rush to see you I didn’t have time to
    find prettier ones to give to you.” Honesty means truthful disclosure not saying whatever you think you think you can get away with.

    Alley, when a friend gives you help with the opposit sex, 1 take a look at the advice and fine tune it ( in this case cut off the roots or better yet take the idea and cut some flowers neatly, 2 do not give them the credit.

    If you don’t like them, call pterry, fly to Lem, and eat some berries.
