147th Temporal Tuesday - 24 April

@Wendell_Howe: It's #TemporalTues Take a time machine anywhere/anywhen.

@BoArthur: @Wendell_Howe April 6, 1841, Nauvoo, Illinois. That's where I'd go. :)

‏@Wendell_A_Howe: @BoArthur The laying of the cornerstone of the Nauvoo Mormon Temple? Ground breaking ceremonies can be rather dull with all the speeches.

BoArthur @Wendell_A_Howe yes, but being a Mormon, that interests me!

@vonHogflume: #TemporalTues Just back from 1905. I watched the first-class cricket debut of Jack Hobbs, in Surrey v Gentlemen (18 & 28). Excellent.

@mrrustymonkey: * a car alarm sounds off, in the parking lot of the #TemporalTues twitterverse, & a monkey doll sits straight up in bed *

@mrrustymonkey: * he was having a #TemporalTues nightmare about selling art supplies out of his apartment, while impatient customers yelled @ him *

@mrrustymonkey: * his tired, twitching eyes search the #TemporalTues darkness for the clock.It's only 3:33 am. whew! he can still sleep a little longer *

@mrrustymonkey: * he gets up anyway, & steps into his sparse living / dining room & sits down on a bar stool - his seat on the #TemporalTues time machine *

@mrrustymonkey: * he looks @ his tiny Christmas tree. he made those #TemporalTues ornaments, but no one's around to notice. he stares into the darkness *

@mrrustymonkey: Today on this #TemporalTues, we're slaves @ our job. Someone please set us free! It's 1990.

@mrrustymonkey: We're exhausted #TemporalTues, working a 7 day week. As entry level grunts, our pay is minimum wage meek.

@mrrustymonkey: We're going nowhere #TemporalTues, our future's a big question mark "?" We leave our apartment early morning & return way after dark.

@mrrustymonkey: We do the manager's job #TemporalTues, but we don't get her pay. Perhaps the experience itself will be valuable someday?

@mrrustymonkey: But for now #TemporalTues, we'll unbox these supplies. We price 'um & arrange 'um & won't be surprised…

@mrrustymonkey: …if we work a 12 hour shift #TemporalTues, without any help. We haven't eaten today, but we're too scared to yelp.

@mrrustymonkey: We NEED this job #TemporalTues. It's the recession you see. That better gallery position went to a Ph.D.

@mrrustymonkey: Our college diploma #TemporalTues isn't worth diddly squat ... while we're punching this "real world" robotic time clock.

@mrrustymonkey: Now it's Christmas Eve #TemporalTues & it's getting real late. We need to run register totals & close down this mall gate.

@mrrustymonkey: It's almost midnight #TemporalTues & we're facing a 2 hr drive! We want to spend Christmas with our parents. Hope we make it there alive?

@mrrustymonkey: But these customers are screaming #TemporalTues, "I need to buy some more stuff!" We're 2 seconds from yelling, "Enough is enough!"

@mrrustymonkey: * he closes his eyes tightly & skips ahead exactly one #TemporalTues year into the future… then he opens his eyes again & :-) *

@mrrustymonkey: Oh yes #TemporalTues, I really like what I see! Daddy's kissing mommy next to a jeweled Christmas tree…

@mrrustymonkey: … in a large, warm house #TemporalTues - like the ones we'd drive by & say, "Sure hope we have a home like that one someday!"

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, daddy gave us a career / an escape. Our lives changed in a snap! He helped us break from our chains & out of our trap.

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, he saw our potential & our value. He even invested in ME! ;-) And that investment paid multiples in love, you see.

@mrrustymonkey: So what's the lesson #TemporalTues? Things can change? Yep, things can go your way…if you can just hold on, hold on, for one more day.

@mrrustymonkey: Oh #TemporalTues time machine, love & kindness is the key that allows me to sing… View video

@mrrustymonkey: * a #TemporalTues tune plays in his head, as he gives a paycheck to someone with a familiar ? look on her face. hold on Cynthia. hold on. *

@mrrustymonkey: Thanks old chap for the #FF! @Wendell_Howe - well worth following on #FF... & #TemporalTues! ;-) Thanks for creating my favorite day!

@mrrustymonkey: Not troubled @pasikas. Mostly tired. My #TemporalTues travels should be more upbeat though? :-) I shouldn't be so haunted by my memories.



146th Temporal Tuesday - 17 April

‏@Captain_Zaphod: #TemporalTues 17 Apr 1937 to see the debut of Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd and Petunia Pig. Ate 5 bags of popcorn & 2 bags of peanuts to.

@Wendell_Howe: It's #TemporalTues http://temporaltues.blogspot.com/ Join @Captain_Zaphod and sneak into a movie theatre in the past.

@Captain_Zaphod: @Wendell_Howe Gonna be one crowded theatre...

@vonHogflume: #TemporalTues I really enjoyed attending a medieval feast, but found the idea of throwing meat bones to the floor for the dogs a bit odd.

@vonHogflume: #TemporalTues Just back from 1914, where I enjoyed watching "The Photo Drama of Creation" put on by Bible Students. 8 hours of early cinema!

@mrrustymonkey: * somewhere in the #TemporalTues twitterverse, a small piece of luggage tumbles over & an old monkey dolls squeaks out in distress *

@mrrustymonkey: * it feels like someone's given him a swift kick in the head. it's dark, but he can see #TemporalTues stars *! *! *!

@mrrustymonkey: * he hears muffled talking. sounds like Uncle Mark & grandaddy are saying something about football & ordering #TemporalTues beer? *

@mrrustymonkey: * he tries to wiggle himself around in the cramped, pitch black space. is this his seat on the #TemporalTues time machine? *

@mrrustymonkey: * he wonders what has become of his little blue crochet hat? the luggage flops back over again. he squeaks & closes his #TemporalTues eyes *

@mrrustymonkey: Today on this #TemporalTues, I'm feeling all rough & tumble. I'm being tossed to-and-fro! It's a week ago.

@mrrustymonkey: I'm on a plane for Vegas #TemporalTues. It's their anniversary you see. And I was once their ring bearer - yep, little old toy monkey me.

@mrrustymonkey: I should have my own ticket #TemporalTues! Alright, I really shouldn't complain…but this old Vuitton case kinda drives me insane. ;-)

@mrrustymonkey: * the #TemporalTues luggage opens temporarily. oh bother, mommy's just digging around for mints! he spies the back of Aunt Nancy's head *

@mrrustymonkey: I can hear my mammaw #TemporalTues. I'd much rather sit in her lap. Instead, I'm stuck in this old "Speedy" trap. ;-(

@mrrustymonkey: Now they're watching a movie #TemporalTues. They've forgotten about me. I'd like some Biscoff cookies. Will someone please set me free?

@mrrustymonkey: * the #TemporalTues bag opens again & there's his daddy! he says, "You OK in there little buddy?" monkey grins, closing his eyes again *

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, I just heard Uncle Mark say "limo" - we must be on the ground? And I can hear that old bing bonging slot machine sound!

@mrrustymonkey: Where's "The Strip" #TemporalTues? I want to see those bright lights! "Hey mommy, can I pop out & see all the sights?"

@mrrustymonkey: *he looks up to see a beam of #TemporalTues light slicing through the darkness. the zipper slides open & a hand reaches in to pull him out*

@mrrustymonkey: Hooray #TemporalTues! We're unpacked & ready to relax in our room. We're way up in the sky. Did I just hear a loud boom?

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, that fountain outside shoots high up in the air! The water dances to music! Let's just sit here & stare.

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, that building's covered with faces. It that Donny & Marie? Now this looks like a Vegas of my memory?

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, but where's Elvis & Wayne Newton... the Rat Pack @ the Dunes? That fake Eiffel Tower seems a bit "Looney Tunes".

@mrrustymonkey: * he continues to sit, mesmerized by the #TemporalTues entertainment below. everything appears to be spinning. he grins.

@mrrustymonkey: OK #TemporalTues. This is Vegas, so just about anything goes. Tomorrow night, we'll enjoy a cool Broadway-style show!

@mrrustymonkey: But tonight #TemporalTues, we celebrate 15 & 45! It's their anniversary & her birthday… & we're all still alive. ;-)

@mrrustymonkey: Let's order room service #TemporalTues & listen to old standards & jazz. We'll save tomorrow for any wild razzmatazz!

@mrrustymonkey: * he hears a familiar #TemporalTues song playing & suddenly he's back in a 1960's Vegas with his daddy. "How lucky can one monkey be!"

@mrrustymonkey: Oh #TemporalTues time machine, here's a coin to make your slot machine ring... View video

@thisbear: @mrrustymonkey Rusty?! *world suddenly gets brighter, like a whole box of brand new crayons*



145th Temporal Tuesday - 10 April

@vonHogflume: #T:emporalTues 1066 AD: I do wish that King Harold had not replied "Where?" when his men shouted a warning about arrows.

@DL_Thurston @Wendell_Howe I missed #TemporalTues, so I came back from tomorrow to participate. I regret not memorizing tonight's sports scores first.

@Captain_Zaphod: #TemporalTues Unsuccessful hunting trip. Wandered through time/space but unable to find anyone w/ a bigger ego then mine.



144th Temporal Tuesday - 3 April

@mousewords: @ExplodingDragon I made auspicious use of #TemporalTues time travel. You should SEE all the Lorax cosplay at ComicCon 2012! ;)

@Wendell_Howe: Not sure if using a time machine to sneak into ComicCon is cricket, but is one way to get there. @mousewords @ExplodingDragon #TemporalTues

@mousewords: @Wendell_Howe It's not *realllly* sneaking in, since my ticket'd be at will-call..it's just impatience ;D #TemporalTues

@vonHogflume: #TemporalTues Thought about travelling back to buy some British gold in 2002 for $256 an ounce, then selling it in 2012 for $1000.

‏@vonHogflume: #TemporalTues I found that something in British gold affects my #timemachine. I had to leave it in a bank strongbox, but I lost the key.

@vonHogflume: #TemporalTues I also forgot that chip-and-PIN cards do not work before 2006. So I had to pay by cheque! So old fashioned.

@scablander: "Sinking of the Lusitania" - 1918 - Windsor McCay. Probably the first propaganda animated cartoon. View video #TemporalTues

@Captain_Zaphod: #TemporalTues 1974 Went to the opening night of Young Frankenstein. My whirlwind appearance in Heart of Gold Improbably (cont.)

@Captain_Zaphod: #TemporalTues (pt 2) triggered the 148 twisters comprising the Super Tornado Outbreak that struck 13 states. Nobody makes a bigger entrance
