48th Temporal Tuesday - 1 June

Sunday, 30 May
@ZAmmi: Most of my training involved merely perfecting an American accent, & standard firstaid, of course. Then I was ready to go back in time. #TemporalTues

@ZAmmi: They could have sent an American to New Jersey, but the inflection was different in those days, something a native might get lazy about #TemporalTues

@ZAmmi: Temporal Anthropology was in its infancy & they were terrified about fieldagents being recognised; even on forays into so recent a past #TemporalTues

@ZAmmi: It was like slipping on an old familiar coat, emerging into 1955. Living memory, and not so different to life back home. #TemporalTues

@ZAmmi: I parked my machine, disguised as a Harley-Davidson, beside a soda shop. Bill Hayes was pumping out Davey Crockett on the jukebox. #TemporalTues

@ZAmmi: Wonder if I have time to 'discover' Elvis? I look at the display on the bike's temporal dial-9months too late. Dang. On to the Hospital #TemporalTues

@ZAmmi: A young doctor on a break leans, smoking against the hospital wall. He flashes me an appreciative smile, and I blush, tugging my skirt. #TemporalTues

@ZAmmi: I'm suddenly thankful none of my family lived in the US in the 50s-No chance via dabr of flirting with an uncle! The young gallant gets the door #TemporalTues

@ZAmmi: Confronted by the sting of ether & iodine, I wrinkle my nose. There's little time. I hurry past a laundry, bandages steaming on racks.. #TemporalTues

@ZAmmi: I knock on the door to the private ward. The sister sniffs contemptuously through her aquiline nose as she spots my student uniform. #TemporalTues

@ZAmmi: "Can you speak German?" she asks. My heart yammers "No, why?" "He said something funny just now." Oh no! Am I too late? "Is he still.." #TemporalTues

@ZAmmi: "Asleep? He slips in & out" "Alive!" "Yes, why wouldn't he be?" My breath puffs in relief. "You're not a fan are you?"she scowls "N-no" #TemporalTues

@ZAmmi: "I'm just.. It's my first.. He's so important, I.." The nurse rolls here eyes at my stammers. "This way." She escorts me into the ward #TemporalTues

@ZAmmi: White whispy hair frames a wrinkled face; almost infant-like. Quick mobile eyebrows mark an intelligence not swayed by second childhood #TemporalTues

@ZAmmi: 10 years of preparation, temporal training, a physics pHD; & seventy plus years of speculation shoulder into the room as she leaves it. #TemporalTues

@ZAmmi: I bend over him, to check his breathing. Brilliant eyes flash open, and he grips my arm compulsively. My heart stops in my chest. #TemporalTues

@ZAmmi: I'm touching history! My mind does summersaults. No. History's touching me! No temporal lessons could ever prepare me for this shock #TemporalTues

@ZAmmi: "Mr Einstein?" I ask, breathless. He looks at me, eyes full of revelation. "Gott zeigte mir die Lösung! Sie war schön!" Then he is gone #TemporalTues

@ZAmmi: Unification theory..the holy grail of physics.Did he solve it?Yes.Will we ever know how?Not in this dimension.I sigh &kickstart my bike #TemporalTues

@mrrustymonkey: *the door to the twitterverse opens & a monkey head sticks through* Yes, this seems like a good time to take the #TemporalTues time machine!

@mrrustymonkey: Today on this #TemporalTues, there's a problem that maybe a child's prayer can fix? It's 1976.

@mrrustymonkey: Our bug collection #TemporalTues, needs just one more to pin. And it has to be extraordinary to win!

@mrrustymonkey: We wonder #TemporalTues, if God actually heard? So far... He hasn't said a word.

@mrrustymonkey: Tomorrow, #TemporalTues, I'll look up to see... 2 big praying mantis eyes staring @ me!

@mrrustymonkey: Oh #TemporalTues time machine, let the lesson of God's love & patience sing. Love Is Like A Butterfly

@mrrustymonkey: @marleyterrier, you can take @Wendell_Howe's #TemporalTues time machine back to any time of your choosing. Come along for a ride!

@familytreeuk: Been in 1792 in Coveney, Cambridgeshire - trying to find those MODEN or MORDEN ancestors. *sigh* where ARE you? #genealogy #temporaltues

@Virgilante: #TemporalTues Inspired by Wendell's visit to India, I want to visit Jim Corbett the tiger hunter.

@Captain_Zaphod: #TemporalTues Seeking only person in 1885 that's Tweeting (ie: @Wendell_Howe ) should be easy but Bombay's HUGE & full of ape decedents.

LaMinang: @Wendell_Howe been meqning to ask. How do I do temporal tuesday?

Wendell_Howe: @LaMinang To do Temporal Tuesday just type in #TemporalTues & where you are off to in your time machine. Temporal Tuesday Blog

Wendell_Howe: @LaMinang You can cheat & do #TemporalTues on any day. It IS time travel after all.

SarahEGlenn: @Wendell_Howe One day, I may travel on #TemporalTues. Unfortunately, too many eras suck for women. And have no plumbing. Minoan Age?
NoeticSpark: 1835 Brushing up on paradiddles for snare, joining PT Barnum in NYC to kick off his 1st circus tour in the morn~Drum roll plz! #temporaltues
