186th Temporal Tuesday - 29 January

‏@mrrustymonkey: * a car radio turns on, somewhere in the #TemporalTues twitterverse * Y107.9 ;-) ‏

@mrrustymonkey: * a monkey doll listens, even though his mind seems to be elsewhere - lost in his #TemporalTues thoughts *

‏@mrrustymonkey: * a familiar tune is playing. his #TemporalTues mind slides back to a sobering moment from his once upon a time *

‏@mrrustymonkey: * there's just the radio #TemporalTues or dead silence. his hands grip hard on the car seat...

‏@mrrustymonkey: ... his seat on the #TemporalTues time machine * ;-)

‏@mrrustymonkey: Today on this #TemporalTues, everything's gonna be fine. We'll survive. It's 1995.

‏@mrrustymonkey: It's a mighty long car ride #TemporalTues, sitting in silence you see. We just heard the results from our biopsy.

‏@mrrustymonkey: And the news isn't as hoped #TemporalTues, so there's nothing else to be said. Right now, all I want is to just clear my head.

@mrrustymonkey: I'll make it an adventure #TemporalTues - something not done before? Something different. Something new to explore!

‏@mrrustymonkey: Chemotherapy #TemporalTues. There, I said it you see. It's just a word, & so is malignancy.

‏@mrrustymonkey: And radiation #TemporalTues. Maybe we won't loose our hair? Am I really this vain? Do I really care?

‏@mrrustymonkey: Oh, snap out it #TemporalTues! At least we're alive. During these upcoming months, we really must strive...

@mrrustymonkey: ...to stay positive #TemporalTues. I trust in the power of prayer, & my guardian angels who really do care.

‏@mrrustymonkey: And what a relief #TemporalTues, to have my parents with me. Support of family is today's necessity.

‏@mrrustymonkey: Here's my point #TemporalTues, whenever my chips have been down. Family is the answer that I've always found.

@mrrustymonkey: What it all comes down to #TemporalTues, is unconditional love. It's a comfortable bond that fits like a glove.

‏@mrrustymonkey: Yes, we'll be fine #TemporalTues. Together, we can weather any storm - jump hurdles as tall as the Matterhorn!

‏@mrrustymonkey: * turns on his #TemporalTues radio, from that past time, & sings along to its upbeat song & :-) *

‏@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, "I'm sad but I'm laughing. I'm here but I'm really gone. I'm lost but I'm hopeful, baby."

@mrrustymonkey: "And what it all boils down to #TemporalTues, is that everything's gonna be fine, fine, fine..."

@mrrustymonkey: "...Cause I've got one hand in my pocket ..." #TemporalTues, it's time to sing... view song


185th Temporal Tuesday - 22 January

@vonHogflume: #TemporalTues 1927 – I listened to Teddy Wakelam give the first live radio commentary of a football match anywhere in the world, between Arsenal F.C. and Sheffield United at Highbury. The match was terrible, but the commentary fascinating with no clich├ęs

************************************************************************************ @mousewords: I'm holding a 102-year-old postcard (written on a Tuesday) & looking at its destination address from a satellite view. #TemporalTues

************************************************************************************ @SplinteredMind: Was just discussing terraforming w my cat. She's very keen on turning Mars into a catnip resort for kitties. Even has backers #TemporalTues

183rd Temporal Tuesday - 8 January

@vonHogflume: #TemporalTues I fancied an adventurous sea cruise so I visited 1492 and sailed with Cristoforo Colombo across the Atlantic Ocean.

@Captain_Zaphod: Hubble captured the deepest view yet of the very early universe today. To 1 up the ape descendants I went there & waved. #TemporalTues

@mrrustymonkey: * a cell phone rings, somewhere in the #TemporalTues twitterverse. the monkey doll chooses to ignore it *

@mrrustymonkey: * it keeps ringing, but on this #TemporalTues, he's being his stubborn self & continues to ignore it *

@mrrustymonkey: * his imaginary eyes are open #TemporalTues, but only darkness encircles him. he might as well just dream.... *

@mrrustymonkey: * ... or take his seat on the #TemporalTues time machine *

@mrrustymonkey: Today on this #TemporalTues, I'm playing hide & seek! It's a cold, gray day, sometime last week.

@mrrustymonkey: I'm tucked in this purse #TemporalTues, missing every single thing - except when her cell phone rings!

@mrrustymonkey: It's so loud #TemporalTues! And it vibrates, tickling my toes. Should I answer it? Nope, I don't think so.

@mrrustymonkey: You see #TemporalTues, I can't move by myself. But I am here & I can hear. On my own, without her, is my only fear.

@mrrustymonkey: Oh, who's that calling #TemporalTues, why won't they leave us alone! Go way you intrusive telephone!

@mrrustymonkey: * the ringing sound faintly reminds him of music from another #TemporalTues era. he strains to listen *

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, I think I'm beginning to like this odd ring? Now, it sounds so familiar... like old big band swing!

@mrrustymonkey: If I could just pop my head out... What if I like it out there - outside in the magical #TemporalTues air?

@mrrustymonkey: But it's warm in here #TemporalTues & sometimes, you see, she'll stick her hand in just to hold hands with me!

@mrrustymonkey: Nothing to do #TemporalTues, but take another nap. It's all I ever do in this old Speedy trap.

‏@mrrustymonkey: * he drifts off into a deep sleep & finds himself in a vintage, smoke filled #TemporalTues restaurant *

@mrrustymonkey: * he notices that the #TemporalTues dining booths are neatly cloistered around a wooden dance floor *

@mrrustymonkey: * he slides into #TemporalTues booth #11, to wait for his friend *

@mrrustymonkey: * then, a #TemporalTues piano begins to play. couples quickly make their way onto the dance floor. he grins *

@mrrustymonkey: This is lovely #TemporalTues - this old time, way back when. We're young & on top - it's our place of Begin.

@mrrustymonkey: * as the couples drift round & round the #TemporalTues dance floor, he recalls another time...*

@mrrustymonkey: Now, I'm @ a track, #TemporalTues! Look @ all those race cars! This day sparkles for me like a million little stars!

@mrrustymonkey: * as he looks up @ the #TemporalTues stars, he finds himself on a giant, floating city - a ship on the ocean *

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, now here's an opportunity that I just can't refuse - to float forever on a heavenly cruise!

@mrrustymonkey: * the #TemporalTues cell phone rings one last time. this time, he puts his tiny gloved hand out towards the phone *

@mrrustymonkey: * he whispers, "Goodnight my friend. Cruise on. I'll meet you @ a future #TemporalTues stop. "snore...snore" *

@mrrustymonkey: Oh #TemporalTues time machine, play us a song Mr. Gene. And the angels sing. … View media

@Wendell_Howe: 2660 Petersburg - If only I could give Pushkin modern body armor some #TemporalTues. View media He died too young in a silly duel.
