    I can’t help wondering whether or not that “puddle” which Guz pushed Tunk into really should be a river or a lake – and Guz suddenly realizes that Tunk is right – that the water in Lem – and probably also in Moo – is drying up – and that the two kings have a mutual problem – which they will need to work together in order to resolve. Back in 1998, when the water dried up in both Lem and Moo – and all of the game disappeared – Guz and Tunk discovered that their kingdoms were being targeted by invaders from outer space. The space travelers had scooped up all of the water to power their vehicles and had scooped up all of the game for the zoos on their home planet. Can’t help but wonder if this is going to lead to a similar story. The 1998 story was kind of interesting – up until the point where the space invaders were revealed to be frog-like creatures from a planet of frogs. That would be more interesting then just ending with Guz pushing Tunk into a puddle.

    Maybe Guz will suddenly notice that Tunk is right – and the water in the stream IS dangerously low? Back in 1998, when Lem and Moo suddenly began noticing that their water supply was drying up – it was because visitors from outer space were grabbing up the water to supply their space-traveling vessels. Maybe this is going to turn in to a re-run of the 1998 story about Tunk and Guz working together to defeat an enemy from outer space, who was using ultra-modern technology to take advantage of the prehistoric citizens of Lem and Moo?

    Hopefully, Alley will think of something romantic in time for Valentine’s Day. They sort of missed both Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. Of course, LAST year – they were all still in Hollywood, chasing crooks, for Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day – so it is no wonder Oola is a little bit bent out of shape! Oola DESERVES some romance – and, hopefully, the next couple of weeks will be filled with a bit of romance!

    I remember the days when ALL service stations actually GAVE service to all customers. The last time Go Comics posted a Sunday strip for Mutt and Jeff was in October. It seems odd that Go Comics just doesn’t go back in to their archives and re-post some of the previous Sunday strips. Mutt and Jeff were most famous for their Sunday strips. – and with close to 100 years of strips to draw from – you would think that it would be easy for whomever to find hundreds of new strips which they could have posted at :Go Comics!

    Ideas for a new arc? I think Alley and Oola should end up in 1911, and meet Edgar Rice Burroughs, just as he is beginning to write fiction. Then they should all return to Moo – where Burroughs gets the inspiration for the Lost Land of Paul U Dun – which he eventually wrote about in the Tarzan stories! Then Burroughs returns to 1911, where his creative juices continue to flow!

    Re – Hi, Lois !

    Where in Colo. are you ?

    Ed and I are in Boulder. He is 97 since a couple weeks ago and has macular in the right eye. Ed was in the Euro theater as a combatant in ‘44 and was a P.O.W. toward the end of the war itself. He gets full compensation with VA including new dentures periodically. He is taking Lutein and really not much more that I am aware of. He is a big reader and so the condition gets in his way. He still drives his own car locally and gets to VA by either me or his son as needed.

    If there is an Eyelea in our area I sure would like to know where ?

    Mail is at the profile if you don’t want to talk on the page.

    Thanks, Gordon

    If you are in Boulder – you might consider looking up Dr. Mary Lansing – who has an office in Louisville – in part of the Avista Hospital. Of course, I go to Dr. Lansing because she accepts my insurance – Not sure what the scoop would be for VA – but I DO meet a lot of military veterans when I am waiting for my appointment – so your friend might check with VA. When I am in the Denver area, I use Senior Resource Ride to make it to Dr. appointments. Senior Resource Ride is part of Senior Resource Center. Of course, you need to make your appointments for rides a week or two in advance of when you will need the ride – so they can’t do any last minute appointments. Hope this helps – good luck with your search!

    Hey, Lois, I’m glad that Eyelea is working for you. I hadn’t heard of that product before.

    I have an aunt that is suffering from MD and I wonder if Eyelea might be available in Maple Lake, MN, for her? I’ll have to check it out.

    XXXXXXXXXXXX

    If you Google Eyelea WebMD you will come up with a pretty extensive write-up about Eyelea. I would imagine that it would be possible for your aunt to find a doctor nearby who was expert in administering Eyelea – the Mayo Clinic is in Rochester – and they have some super doctors there. If anyone knows about the latest developments in medicine – it would be doctors associated with the Mayo Clinic!

    A bountiful Sunday to all.

    I hope that everyone is doing well. I am concerned about those getting all the snow and flooding.

    UPDATE: My left eye continues to get better although there is still some inflammation in it.

    My girlfriend and I are spending a lot of time together. (We get along so well that it’s almost scary). If our love continues to grow we may get married later this year.

    Prayers for all my friends. Have a peaceful day.

    Great news that your vision is beginning to improve. I was diagnosed with Macular Degeneration back in the 1990s. My doctor just had me take extra doses of Occuvite with Lutein – plus a multiple vitamin with Lutein. That worked well until about 2014 – when the MD in one of my eyes began to escalate. Fortunately, nowadays, MD is no longer an automatic cause of immediate blindness. My doctor referred me to a specialist, who was able to inject Eyelea in to the affected eye. My doctor also belongs to a foundation called Eyelea For You – and the Eyelea Foundation picked up the lion’s share of the cost of the injections. So my eyesight has been slowly improving over the past couple of years. I am really thankful for the type of advances which medical science has been able to make in the past several years. There is NO cure for MD – but, thankfully, it CAN be slowed down. Of course, when I visit my doctor, I often meet a number of military veterans, who are dealing with vision problems created during their military service – and they are often dealing with other disabilities besides the problems with their vision.

    I have found that it is easier to read Go Comics when using Firefox as a browser – rather than Safari. Safari doesn’t seem to be able to enlarge the pictures enough for me to be able to read the dialog.

    Good Morning Benders and readers of Alley Oop. Prayers for those recovering from the big storm on the east coast. Good summary today in the strip. Hopefully soon we’ll find out a unanswered question. who was the mole who
    told Tunk that Alley Oop hadn’t been in Moo for a extended period of time. Tunk had stated that the mole had been sent in exile with the other Moovians We don’t know if Guz, by accident, betrayed his people stupidly or if someone else did it. Have a good day Be safe.

    By contrast – here in Colorado – we were enjoying 60 degree weather! We have had our 2 and 3 foot snowstorms in the past – and minus 35 degree wind chills – so we hope everyone made it through OK. I got tired of doing without electricity during Colorado snowstorms – so I invested in a Generac back-up generator. It has been well worth the investment.

    It will be interesting to see if the question about the inadvertent (?) spy is eventually answered.

    XXXXXXXXXX

    I still think that Tunk could get away with claiming that they just helped evacuate Moovians away from a perceived threat. If you check back in the archives – to January 1998 – you will find a rather intriguing story about all of the game disappearing in Moo – so Guz gathered up all of his Moovian citizens, and heading to Lem for help. On the way, they met Tunk, followed by all of his Lemian citizens – and discovered that the Lemians were headed to Moo to ask for help – because all of the game in Lem had disappeared. All of the water had ALSO disappeared! When Alley Oop discovered the meeting between the Lemians and Moovians, trying to figure out what had happened to all of the game and water in their respective kingdoms. Alley reported that, on the other side of a deep ravine outside of both Lem and Moo, Alley had discovered both game AND water. So Guz and Tunk sent a hunting party to capture some game, while Alley, Oola, Foozy and some other Moovians headed across the ravine to collect water for the citizens of both Lem and Moo. While they were still trying to figure out what had happened to all of the game and water in Lem and Moo, they discovered that someone was watching them with a robot, made to look like a fluttering bug. They eventually discovered that a visitor from a planet inhabited by frog-like creatures had grabbed all of the game to take back to the zoos on their planet – and had grabbed all of the water to power their space-craft.

    XXXXXXXXXXXX

    So there HAVE been times in the past when Guz and Tunk cooperated for the benefit of the citizens of both their kingdoms. I think that would have been more interesting than having Tunk and Guz fighting with each other for no better reason than to collect crowns!

    XXXXXXXXXXXX

    1998 was a fairly interesting year for Alley. For the Sunday story – the story was about a Moovian father with three marriage-aged daughters, who was desperate to find husbands for his daughters. So he kidnapped Alley and a couple of other Moovian bachelors, then kept all three prisoners near his home – where the daughters waited on the three bachelors – hand and foot. It was actually kind of funny – as Alley tried to find a way to avoid becoming the husband of one of the daughters!
