@blanghinrichs: #TemporalTues Last week at this time of day, I was watching the waves on vacation. Sigh! Want to go back

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, I see you there! I didn't forget you! * fastens the time machine seat belt, so he won't fall off *

@mrrustymonkey: Today on this #TemporalTues, I'm face down on the cold, hard floor. :-( It's 1994.

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, it's the 1st night in my brand new house & I'm trying to be as quiet as a mouse...

@mrrustymonkey: ...so I won't be a bother #TemporalTues , you see, cause I want them to love & keep me! ;-)

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, mommy says to daddy, "Best keep him in a case - so he won't get worn - with holes in his face."

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues... Daddy says, "He wants to be loved - he looks like that kind. And anyway, I just bet he won't mind!"

@mrrustymonkey: One minute #TemporalTues, I'm on the night stand - & then... you can guess where I'll land!

@mrrustymonkey: This fall, #TemporalTues, was a good thing ( you'll agree ) cause it made her wake up & hug on me! :-)

@mrrustymonkey: Oh #TemporalTues time machine, mommy's love is the medicine that makes me sing! Can you feel the love tonight Live

@theMentalMob: #TemporalTues T'nk System 20513 Many around a large round screen table followed Weasel to the huge transparent wall. It was the White Owl.

@ontheblob: #temporaltues Heading for the last Ice Age for a break!

@Wendell_Howe: 1885 New Orleans - It is #TemporalTues today. Hmmm, lots of famous people in New Orleans that haven't been born yet I would like to meet.

@Wendell_Howe: I wish I could go back to 8 September, 1954 in New Orleans and watch Ruby Bridges go to her new school. photo

@Wendell_Howe: The first day of school is always scary. It's even scarier when a crowd is throwing things at you and calling you names. #TemporalTues

@Wendell_Howe: (Norman Rockwell's painting of Ruby) Ruby became the first black child to enroll in an all white school in the south, ending segregation. #TemporalTues

@Wendell_Howe: I wish I could be there to cheer her on and throw roses. But Ruby will be brave despite no friendly faces in the crowd. #TemporalTues

@Wendell_Howe: Ruby made William Frantz Elementary a landmark. She will grow up to rebuild it after Hurricane Katrina. (Ruby in 2009) #TemporalTues

@Wendell_Howe: The story of New Orleans’ youngest hero, Ruby Bridges: Ruby in her own words and Ruby Bridges: The Movie #TemporalTues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex step into the past. #temporaltues. ur listenin to Edith Piaf, bombers fly overhead, the swastika flaps on l'Hôtel de Ville.

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex an acerbic old French barfly sits beside u sippin coffee made of acorns,dowsed with rum,moanin about rationing #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex The barmaid tunes into the BBC World Service, flashing a defiant glare at you, daring you to inform on her. #temporaltues

@RyanosaurusRex: @ZAmmi *sighs, fingers tapping idly at the counter, attention only partly on the man's words* Yes, yes, terrible, isn't it... #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex Irish music strains through the speakers, interrupted by a massive explosion that rocks the building.. #temporaltues

@RyanosaurusRex: @ZAmmi *grasps the arm of man next to her* What on earth was ~that? #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex Airraid sirens wail. A man runs in yelling, "M'aidez! M'aidez!!" #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex the barfly shrugs indifferent. he mumbles something that could be 'I don't know' or more likely 'I don't care' #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex The man who ran in has blood trickling from a gash on his head. He's covered with concrete dust. What do u do? #temporaltues

@RyanosaurusRex: @ZAmmi *gets to her feet, hurrying up to the man* Sir, what's happened? Are you okay? *tries to examine the wound* #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex the man hesitates, he seems to be unsure he can trust you. "Heil Hitler" he says warily watching your reaction #temporaltues

@RyanosaurusRex: @ZAmmi The words almost cause a flinch, but the face is still and the words mumbled back, eyes kept steady tho fingers twitch. #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex His handsome eyes study urs.A creepy realisation flushes over u that his accent wasnt QUITE right.Is he a spy? #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex or is he a German SS agent looking to filter out rebels? Your reaction makes his eyes narrow. "A bomb, -" #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex "F***ing British, bombing a cinema! people are buried! We need help!" He beckons for you to follow him #temporaltues

@RyanosaurusRex: @ZAmmi Hesitant, tho deciding not to show it, I follow him. Wondering how wise it really is, but he's moving and so am I. #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex The sun glares down on a scene of heart-rending destruction.Men are passing buckets in a chain to dowse a fire #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex "ur small." he says, lookin u over. "We need someone to crawl thru the basement window,to check for survivors" #temporaltues

@RyanosaurusRex: @ZAmmi Worried frown wrinkles my forehead and I cringe slightly, but nod. "Is there a... rope or something I can hold on to?" #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex He nods and begins to wind it round your waist. Someone hands you a torch. Rubble shifts ominously behind you. #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex "Ready?" he says, pointing to a shattered window in a small portion of wall that's still standing #temporaltues

@RyanosaurusRex: @ZAmmi Taking a deep breath, kneeling down and shining the torch through the window before starting to climb down. #temporaltues

@RyanosaurusRex: @ZAmmi Feet scraping to find support, I make my way down, feet finally touching ground. Looking up at window, I then turn... #temporaltues

@RyanosaurusRex: @ZAmmi ...to look into the basement. Place is dark and full of dust. "Is there anybody here?" Carefully stepping in further. #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex broken glass crinkles under your feet. You THINK you hear a faint cough, followed by a hasty 'shhh!' Odd. #temporaltues

@RyanosaurusRex @ZAmmi Pausing at the sounds, frowning again. "...Anyone? It's okay, I'm... I'm here to help." Looking around, torchlight... #temporaltues

@RyanosaurusRex: @ZAmmi ...flickering, casting odd shadows. A swallow, then advancing further into the darkness that gives way for the fire. #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex The man behind you at the window hisses at you "There's three back rooms, full of old reels of film, & a long" #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex "corridor leadin to the movie theater,u'll come out behind the big screen"*coughs at dust thrown up by ur feet #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex "Should she check the back rooms?"a man flops down beside ur 'friend'. "What for?" he replies a lil TOO quicky #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex They watch you through the window. "Did you hear something??" The new guy says his head snapping to & fro #temporaltues

@RyanosaurusRex: @ZAmmi I glance back towards the window. "Check for what?" Then, "I don't know, if you could be ~quiet for a few seconds..." #temporaltues

@RyanosaurusRex: @ZAmmi "And let up on the rope, you're pulling me off-balance..!" #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex That cry comes again,definitely a child's voice.It distant..too far for the men watchin u to hear.Where is it? #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex Nosey and Nagging halt their typical male commentary on your proceedings with a mumbled "Sorry" #temporaltues

@RyanosaurusRex: @ZAmmi Rolling my eyes, then concentrate on the sound. "Hello? Who's there? Don't be scared, I'm here to help..." Moving on... #temporaltues

@RyanosaurusRex: @ZAmmi ..I stumble forward as foot catches on rubble. Hand flying up to steady against the wall, drop the torch with a curse. #temporaltues

@RyanosaurusRex: @ZAmmi Regaining composure, I bend down to grab the torch again, thankful it didn't go out. #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex the flame ignites on leaking oil used to oil the projection machinery, it catches alight. Your situation just #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex got a little more urgent. Can you stamp it out, before the trail of leaking oil reaches the canister? #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex or ignore it &try &find the frightened kid or kids who don't seem to wanna be found before flame consumes all? #temporaltues

@RyanosaurusRex: @ZAmmi Once again cursing, it takes a second before I tug off my vest and toss it on the fiery trail, stomping furiously on it #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex black acrid smoke billows up from under ur vest. The 2 men wolf-whistle at ur bra. A child coughs at the smoke #temporaltues

@RyanosaurusRex: @ZAmmi Ignoring the whistling best I can, I move towards the cough, dodging a fallen shelf, eyes straining in the dark... #temporaltues

@RyanosaurusRex: @ZAmmi ...hand waving at the foul-smelling smoke. "Anyone here? Please, come out, wherever you are, I'll get you out of here." #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex The sound of scuffling comes from one of the storage rooms, followed by the creak of a heavy wood swinging - #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex closed. It sounds too.. heavy to be a door? More like someone shifting a stack of shelves. Why's he running? #temporaltues

@RyanosaurusRex: @ZAmmi "Wait..!" Sighing I tug at the rope around my waist, untying it. Snatch the burnt vest from the floor, tug it back on.. #temporaltues

@RyanosaurusRex: @ZAmmi ..for all it's worth and continue moving unhindered. Turning into the room the sound came from, I find a dead end. #temporaltues

@RyanosaurusRex: @ZAmmi Shelves, but void of people. I look around, feeling the walls, tugging at shelves. #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex a dead end indeed. Where did he go? Nothing but stacks & stacks of shelving full of film reels covered in dust #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex One of the shelves you tug makes a strange clicking sound, like a bolt being moved back somewhere deep inside #temporaltues

@ZAmmi: @RyanosaurusRex it looks like it might swing open, if you tugged on it very hard... A spider skitters across the dusty shelf. #temporaltues

[continued next week???...Let's hope so]
