197th Temporal Tuesday - 12 June

‏@Captain_Zaphod: #temporaltues Flintstones ... Meet the Flintstones they say. So, I went back and traded with Wilma - Marvin for Dino.

‏@ZAmmi: Today is #temporaltues. I've been asked to do a very special assignment by a group of historians from the 95th Century.

‏@ZAmmi: #temporaltues Time Travel Institute had to halt all temporal anthropology in the 82nd C following a war they feared would seep into the past

‏@ZAmmi: #temporaltues They're permitted to communicate with select individuals from the past who were exposed to time travel & thus know it exists

‏@ZAmmi: #temporaltues They have a curious request for me. It seems a certain @Wendell_Howe -whom I am acquainted with, is a figure of great interest

‏@ZAmmi: #temporaltues Their records on him are limited. It seems, some time after he disappeared, maybe a long time after, most records were erased

‏@ZAmmi: #temporaltues When they found out that I had actually met @Wendell_Howe they asked me if I could go back to the 19th Century

‏@ZAmmi: #temporaltues to a time when he was working in the field, studying the people of Victorian England, to meet with him and make a recording.

‏@ZAmmi: So, today, for #temporaltues, I am going back to the 19th Century to sit and have tea with an old friend.

‏@ZAmmi: #temporaltues usually it was @Wendell_Howe who had to be careful not to reveal anything to those he was talking to, this time, I must.

‏@ZAmmi: #temporaltues he has no idea that he will disappear. And I cannot warn him, or act as if anything is strange. It will be hard.

‏@ZAmmi: #temporaltues bc I fear I will be so relieved to see him after all this time that I'll break down in tears when he offers me the darjeeling



196th Temporal Tuesday - 4 June

@mrrustymonkey: * somewhere in the #TemporalTues twitterverse, the door to a very fancy motorcar opens. psst... it's a Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost ;-) *

‏@mrrustymonkey: * a dapper little monkey doll ( wearing linen suit & straw hat ) emerges. he hands his keys to the nice #TemporalTues valet & grins *

@mrrustymonkey: * forgetting all #TemporalTues propriety, he dashes past the old snowbirds - hoping to grab his own wicker perch before they're all taken *

@mrrustymonkey: * success! he closes his eyes, as he takes his seat on the #TemporalTues time machine *

@mrrustymonkey: Today on this #TemporalTues, we're on vacation... but we're not far away. ;-) It's two months ago & maybe a day?

@mrrustymonkey: We're visiting an island #TemporalTues - "Splendid Isolation" they say. It's mommy's 46th birthday.

@mrrustymonkey: And it's their anniversary #TemporalTues, so we'll do the "touristy" thing. I wonder what adventures this weekend will bring?

@mrrustymonkey: We're staying at The Club #TemporalTues, in a luxury suite! psst... all the chocolate covered strawberries a monkey can eat! ;-)

@mrrustymonkey: We'll tour the island #TemporalTues & we'll stop off for a drink. "Something tropical... something fruity & frozen I think?"

@mrrustymonkey: Then it's shopping #TemporalTues, for local artisan wares. This day's completely stress free - without any cares.

@mrrustymonkey: Later #TemporalTues, with the remains of the day, we'll change into all white to play a game of croquet.

@mrrustymonkey: At sunset #TemporalTues, we'll stroll out on the pier. Yes, there's no place that I'd rather be than right here!

@mrrustymonkey: Then it's a kiss #TemporalTues under the oaks & the stars, before heading inside to a fine gentlemen's bar.

@mrrustymonkey: I'll have a Pimm's Cup #TemporalTues. And Daddy will smoke a cigar. All of this... as predictable as the North Star! ;-)

@mrrustymonkey: Then #TemporalTues, we'll don our finest attire. We'll be seated, at table, with a romantic fire.

@mrrustymonkey: For dessert #TemporalTues ( Oh, it's quite special you see! ) ... an exquisite, buttercream confectionary ... for three!

@mrrustymonkey: The next day #TemporalTues, it's brunch with caviar. Mimosas, crepes & ... ( goodness' sake! )... a dessert bar!

@mrrustymonkey: Oh, & one more thing #TemporalTues... it really is quite grand ... we'll visit Aunt Betsy's Villa that was named for Marianne. ;-)

@mrrustymonkey: * packs up his extremely "vintage" #TemporalTues luggage & rings the porter *

@mrrustymonkey: *as he steps outside, into the natural light, he rubs his #TemporalTues eyes. his Rolls is now a gray, unassuming Lincoln. he :-) *

@mrrustymonkey: * he leaps into his comfortable, leather sleeping purse & settles down for the short #TemporalTues ride home *

‏@mrrustymonkey: On the way home #TemporalTues, I'll fall asleep in the car. And I'll dream of a jeweled island that isn't so far.

@mrrustymonkey: Yes, this is home #TemporalTues. I know you can see. :-) My compass always stops here. I'm a lowcountry monkey!

@mrrustymonkey: " So I beat on #TemporalTues, a tiny skiff against the current ..."

@mrrustymonkey: Oh #TemporalTues time machine, listen to the spanish moss sway & sing... View video
