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.
