221st Temporal Tuesday - 14 October

@mrrustymonkey: * blends the colors together for a marvelous mix of late afternoon mood & memory * Time to swirl together some words for #TemporalTues.

@mrrustymonkey: * the door to a former #TemporalTues monastery opens & a monkey doll skips out into another sunny, sunflower filled day *

@mrrustymonkey: * he skips along cobbled streets, prosciutto sandwich in hand, heading towards the #TemporalTues town square below *

@mrrustymonkey: * he picks that familiar spot, on the old court house steps, to sit & wait & think. what to do #TemporalTues, what to do? *

@mrrustymonkey: * he closes his eyes & the decades pass. now, he's sits on the steps of a very old house - his seat on the #TemporalTues time machine *

@mrrustymonkey: Today on this #TemporalTues...do I need to escape from this beloved routine? It's any month this year. It's still 2014.

@mrrustymonkey: his mind wanders, remembering a long ago time & the #TemporalTues consequences of staying some place perhaps a bit too long *

@mrrustymonkey: It's another #TemporalTues day in this lovely, foreign land... but I've enjoyed as much heaven as I can absolutely stand.

@mrrustymonkey: Why do I stay here #TemporalTues? What was that original quest? If I've forgotten by now, perhaps forgetting is best.

@mrrustymonkey: So I sit here #TemporalTues, on these old & crumbling steps. It's been a place where I've laughed & a place where I've wept.

@mrrustymonkey: Is it finished #TemporalTues? Have I paid too many dues? Now, don't look @ me that way - like it's at all surprising news.

@mrrustymonkey: Nothing lasts forever #TemporalTues, even heaven, on any terms. Change is necessary & sometimes scary & often fraught with concerns.

@mrrustymonkey: So cheer up dear #TemporalTues. There is always "more than this". Perhaps the future holds / unfolds a different kind of bliss?

@mrrustymonkey: smiles, as he imagines a future #TemporalTues heaven where he can be just as happy, or maybe even more so... ;) *

@mrrustymonkey: thinks about returning home, to all things familiar & #TemporalTues. "where is home really?" *

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues "... if I live here much longer, I might live here forever. One would think twice before he accepted heaven on such terms."

@mrrustymonkey: hops up from his perch to join the usual dinner promenade. waves to #TemporalTues as he skips down the street. the discoteca awaits... "

@mrrustymonkey: whispers, "You're a fine counsel #TemporalTues. Now, be a good friend. Let me go off and dance. I'll never be here again."

@mrrustymonkey: Oh #TemporalTues time machine, time to hum a little verse for every parallel universe...(link)  


220th Temporal Tuesday - 7 October

@Mortythemouth: #TemporalTues 2050,In an effort to hold back the ever advancing tide,the Pasadena CC approved a $2B measure to beef up coastal sand berms.

219th Temporal Tuesday - 30 September

@mrrustymonkey: * wonders if @Wendell_Howe is around for #TemporalTues ? He needs to borrow that time machine today. * :)

@mrrustymonkey: * late last night, he was up checking his emails & read a bit of unhappy news. wonders what to do #TemporalTues ??? *

@mrrustymonkey: * a long ago friend is hurting - in need of prayers & kind words & #TemporalTues remembrances from an easier time *

@mrrustymonkey: * so he scurries up to the attic & digs around in an old #TemporalTues trunk, in search of something from his college days *

@mrrustymonkey: * he sits down in a discarded chair, next to a trunk of old photos & record albums. this is his seat on the #TemporalTues time machine *

@mrrustymonkey: Today on this #TemporalTues there's a problem to solve, but it's an easy fix ... if we go back to 1986. ;)

@mrrustymonkey: There we are #TemporalTues, a group of silly college friends. The stress of final exams is how it begins...

@mrrustymonkey: Someone "cracks" #TemporalTues & just can't take it anymore! :) So we'll gather the whole 3rd floor... for a trip to a special store!

@mrrustymonkey: * puts the #TemporalTues convertible top down on his triple white ( Wolfsburg edition no less! ) Volkswagon Cabriolet *

@mrrustymonkey: * but too many try to hop in #TemporalTues. some are sitting dangerously above the back seat, so they have to stay behind *

@mrrustymonkey: * the lucky ones speed off... beyond the gates of the #TemporalTues school... out into the real world of "town" *

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, our store is a unique retail therapy. You see, our favorite store mostly sells candy!!! ;)

@mrrustymonkey: * his eye sparkle, as he snatches a #TemporalTues paper bag & begins filling it to the brim with treasure! *

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, we grab Blow Pops & Lemon Heads & Big League Chew... Smarties & Airheads & even Dum Dums too!

@mrrustymonkey: Gobstoppers, Reeses Pieces, Tart n Tiny #TemporalTues Nerds! Ring pops, Lemon drops & chewy, gooey Gummi Worms!

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues Zooks, Wacky Wafers, Bar None & Gatorgum... Candilicious, Bubbilicious, Hubba Bubba, BubbleYum! :)

@mrrustymonkey: It's sugar... #TemporalTues sugar that helps us smile & stay up late. But it's our break, spent together, that was really really great!

@mrrustymonkey: A time of bonding #TemporalTues, when we were tired to the very core. Just a sweet & simple trip to a candy store.

@mrrustymonkey: * goes onto Facebook & posts a #TemporalTues photo of 3 friends from long ago *

@mrrustymonkey: * #TemporalTues, "Someone is in need of a mid 80's, big frizzy hair :). Just remember my funny dance & trips to the candy store."

@mrrustymonkey: * he carefully holds his old #TemporalTues record album & ( in his mind @ least ) puts some quarters in a jukebox @ Schroeder's & :) *

@mrrustymonkey: Oh #TemporalTues time machine, as we stay up late, it's time to sing...(link)


218thTemporal Tuesday - 16 September

@mrrustymonkey: *a car pulls into the driveway of a 1950's #TemporalTues house, located in the idyllic "Mr. Rogers" style neighborhood of Summerville Park*

@mrrustymonkey: *a monkey doll screams with excitement! he skips down the concrete steps, as the door to the #TemporalTues screened porch slams behind him*

@mrrustymonkey: *he didn't even take the time to look @ the #TemporalTues clock. he doesn't understand clocks anyway, but he knows that it's exactly 5:15pm*

@mrrustymonkey: * he runs just as fast as he can & sits down on the last, round sidewalk paver to wait. this is his seat on the #TemporalTues time machine *

@mrrustymonkey: Today on this #TemporalTues you'll say, "Take my hand & let's run!" Oh boy, this is our kind of fun! It's 1971.

@mrrustymonkey: Late afternoon #TemporalTues - it's my favorite, I'd say! It's that special time of day when just you & I play.

@mrrustymonkey: This is "our" game #TemporalTues, where you help me run fast! I just wish I could make this scene last & last!

@mrrustymonkey: It begins #TemporalTues as you pull into the drive. Then suddenly my world comes completely alive!

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, you'll be "end of work" tired ( & to the 100th degree! ) yet somehow you'll find extra energy...

@mrrustymonkey:... to make my day #TemporalTues completely complete! My world sparkles with fun, yet nothing can compete...

@mrrustymonkey:...with this time #TemporalTues, when I am small & you are tall ... & we run & we run... hand in hand & all.

@mrrustymonkey: * screams as he is lifted up by the strong #TemporalTues hand about to carry him, @ lightning speed, running...running down the sidewalk! *

@mrrustymonkey: * he lifts off @ the driveway & doesn't touch down again until they reach the #TemporalTues screened porch @ the end of the house *

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues Then I'll say, "Oh daddy, let's hurry up & do that again!" We'll run back to the car & once more we'll begin.

@mrrustymonkey: * closes his eyes & skips ahead over four #TemporalTues decades into the present day of now *

@mrrustymonkey: That's what it's about #TemporalTues... a hand that helps me to fly - consistent & loving & never wondering why.

@mrrustymonkey: And so it goes #TemporalTues, now that hand holds a phone. You see... when I'm talking to you I am never alone. :)

@mrrustymonkey: Your advise #TemporalTues is consistently strong. As long as you're here, nothing can go wrong!

@mrrustymonkey: *he talks to his daddy/grandaddy in little #TemporalTues squeaks - the kind that only old & rusty monkey dolls make when their heads bobble*

@mrrustymonkey: * his little glass eyeballs glisten in the late afternoon light from yet another precious #TemporalTues *

@mrrustymonkey: Now I must thank you #TemporalTues for this pleasant rewind. A little rhyme & a song.... it always helps clear my mind. ;)

@mrrustymonkey: Oh #TemporalTues time machine, I'll put my hand in your hand as we run & sing ... (song)


217th Temporal Tuesday - 29 July

@Mortythemouth: He stood with millions but sat alone.

‏@FredPrussia: @Mortythemouth ARE YOU SUBTWEETING MEE?!?!?!?

@Mortythemouth: @FredPrussia No,I got all excited about #TemporalTues & was texting you.


216th Temporal Tuesday - 3 June

@OnlyMartinLewis: Dropped my phone and I've been reset to January 1st 1980, fine by me as I get to nip all that new romantic nonsense in the bud.

@Mortythemouth:  @OnlyMartinLewis #TemporalTues Via @Wendell_Howe



215th Temporal Tuesday - 20 May

@mrrustymonkey: * the monkey doll hears loud noises coming from somewhere outside, so he opens the door to his linen press room on #TemporalTues. *

@mrrustymonkey: * he quickly determines that it's just the #TemporalTues tent cleanup crew, picking up the remnants of yet another celebration *

@mrrustymonkey: * he turns up the volume on his #TemporalTues tv & clicks around to find his favorite old movie channel *

@mrrustymonkey: * then, he settles into one of the pillows on his parent’s big bed. This is his seat on the #TemporalTues time machine. *

@mrrustymonkey: Today on this #TemporalTues, there's a wedding event & it's really quite nice. But sometimes... I tire of sparklers & rice.

@mrrustymonkey: You see #TemporalTues, the tent rental trucks drive all over my yard! Watching their abuse is incredibly hard.

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, the money's never enough. I wish there was some other way, to keep this old house & be able to stay.

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, the caterers always steal spoons & they leave trash behind. We loose precious days off, our only chance to unwind.

@mrrustymonkey: And these bridesmaids #TemporalTues, with their spiked leather heels. My poor heart of pine floors...they are a pretty big deal.

@mrrustymonkey: Lock the display cases #TemporalTues! Hide the heirloom pieces! Remind me to bring them back out when this event finally ceases.

@mrrustymonkey: * paces back & forth along the #TemporalTues mezzanine, occasionally peeking out the window to see what's going on out front *

@mrrustymonkey: * notices that way down beyond the #TemporalTues fence, there is a rather mean looking woman standing on her front porch, hands on hips. *

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, now who is that crazy, scowling old witch? Oh, it's just our neighbor down the street who continues to _itch!

@mrrustymonkey: Why did she build here #TemporalTues, near a commercially zoned home? She should creep on back North or just leave us alone!

@mrrustymonkey: If I had teeth #TemporalTues, she'd be bite #1! I'd run wild up that street & I'd have some REAL fun! ;)

@mrrustymonkey: Just imagine #TemporalTues a wild, crazed chimpanzee... run amok in this gated community! ;-)

@mrrustymonkey: * jumps up & down & lets out his loudest squeak, just for #TemporalTues. *

@mrrustymonkey: * then, he checks his own angry #TemporalTues attitude, remembering all those answers to "why" - answers that span 2 decades! *

@mrrustymonkey: We have a museum now #TemporalTues. It's a museum of our dreams. Those tourists like it too, so it seems. :)

@mrrustymonkey: So please forgive me #TemporalTues. It is once more off my chest. Besides, this event's almost over. Let's enjoy the rest.

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, "This house is too... can't nothing bring me down." @mrrustymonkey: Oh #TemporalTues time machine, & the band still plays on... "Because I'm happy" to sing (link)

@mrrustymonkey: * wraps up in his fuzzy, blue twitterverse blanket & slips off into an almost #TemporalTues sort of dream state, because he's happy *

@mrrustymonkey: Thanks @chalkybear13. I do get stressed sometimes. Please ignore. #TemporalTues & the good Dr. @Wendell_Howe help me work it all out. :)

212th Temporal Tuesday - 12 February

@mrrustymonkey: somewhere in the #TemporalTues twitterverse, the door to a big tour bus opens & a grinning monkey doll hops on board *

@mrrustymonkey: he runs up the aisle to his favorite #TemporalTues row of seats & places his bag of souvenirs in the overhead bin *

@mrrustymonkey: he leaps into his mother's purse & settles down for the excursion - his seat on the #TemporalTues time machine ;) *

@mrrustymonkey: Today on this #TemporalTues, I have the luck of the Irish & a twinkle in my eye! It's last year, last July.

@mrrustymonkey: We're in Ireland #TemporalTues, "The Emerald Isle" as they say. It's my daddy's 68th birthday!

@mrrustymonkey: And my grandparents anniversary #TemporalTues, so we'll do the touristy thing. I wonder what adventures this grand week will bring?

@mrrustymonkey: We'll fly to Dublin #TemporalTues. Are you as jet lagged as me? Oh, who cares! Let's tour that art gallery! :)

@mrrustymonkey: We marvel @ Gainsborough, Fra Angelico & the Caravaggio's quite dear. And there's even a spectacular Vermeer! :)

@mrrustymonkey: whispers to #TemporalTues, "Chiaroscuro illumination... just magical! I had forgotten..." *

@mrrustymonkey: And did I forget #TemporalTues, driving round Dublin town? We were lost & saw it twice, but the cab driver was quite nice.

@mrrustymonkey: There are so many pubs #TemporalTues! I'll never visit every one - with the wildest names under the sun!

@mrrustymonkey: I'm overwhelmed #TemporalTues. It's hard to shutter it all in... like the 1st time I saw Europe all over again!

@mrrustymonkey: There's Trinity College #TemporalTues & famous O'Connell Street! St Patrick's Cathedral's a lovely gothic treat!

@mrrustymonkey: back @ the hotel's restaurant, he enjoys some tasty #TemporalTues salmon, followed by a glass of Guinness Stout*

@mrrustymonkey: *he wakes up @ O'dark thirty the next morning, still jet lagged & tosses back some strong, black tea before boarding the #TemporalTues bus*

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, today it's St. Brigid's sweet grassy air, as we stroll through the National Stud in Kildare.

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, did he say castle or Cashel? And did he also say "rock"? Our bus driver's on a timer with no plan to stop!

@mrrustymonkey: We're off to Limerick #TemporalTues for a rhyme of a song. Now sing along with with me. It won't take too long...

@mrrustymonkey: .... #TemporalTues There once was an old monkey doll. He toured Ireland and had quite a ball...

@mrrustymonkey: ... He awoke in the night with a terrible fright... to find out he had just dreamt it all! ;-) Just kidding #TemporalTues!

@mrrustymonkey: Then we're off #TemporalTues, to the steep Cliffs of Moher. I see seagulls & kittiwakes & puffins galore!

@mrrustymonkey: Tonight, #TemporalTues there's an inn in Ennis ( what !? )... with a little gothic pub where I'll drink ANOTHER Guinness! ;)

@mrrustymonkey: * his monkey head starts to spin from the "on the go" pace of this #TemporalTues trip. he's punchy now & everything's funny *

@mrrustymonkey: * he skips down the street to Dunnes, in search of "picnic" supplies for a simple #TemporalTues dinner in his room *

@mrrustymonkey: * he wakes up the next #TemporalTues morning, ready for another "4 leaf clover" of a day. braves the blood pudding even! *

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, today's a mostly gray & very blustery day. We'll cross a foggy estuary on a fairly rusty ferry...it was most extraordinary!

@mrrustymonkey: Oh bother #TemporalTues, I wish this rain would go away... so I could sail a tiny hooker on the bay of Galway.

@mrrustymonkey: * along a boggy road, he begs the #TemporalTues bus driver to stop, so he can pick some bog cotton for his mammaw ;-)*

@mrrustymonkey: But tomorrow #TemporalTues, I'll sheer a lamb ( well, just a patch ) & eat a scone in a home where the roof's entirely thatch!

@mrrustymonkey: The next day's sunny #TemporalTues & so very, very merry... to take a day long drive around the scenic ring of Kerry!

@mrrustymonkey: * whispers to #TemporalTues, " I met a fairy in a Hawthorn bush & that's no pooka! " ;-) *

@mrrustymonkey: Then we're off #TemporalTues to kiss a magic stone named Blarney & we'll stroll through the gardens of the Muckross in Kilaraney!

@mrrustymonkey: * while kissing the Blarney stone #TemporalTues ( he really did by the way ) he accidentally looses his little blue, crochet hat *

@mrrustymonkey: * he watches as it falls down into the bushes far below. oh dear, this is his very favorite thing #TemporalTues! *

@mrrustymonkey: * a big Irish man, who helps the tourists, shouts out from above - guiding him to the #TemporalTues bush where his hat landed *

@mrrustymonkey: * later that evening, he'll toss back a full pint of Guinness... & then another #TemporalTues, as he tells his Blarney tale *

@mrrustymonkey: The next day #TemporalTues, well... it was all I could afford. I bought a tiny seahorse pin in a store called Waterford.

@mrrustymonkey: Another stop #TemporalTues? We'll tour a mill that weaves by hand, where she'll buy a woven bag that's as tight as I can stand!

@mrrustymonkey: * kicks around inside the new monkey carrier, not sure how he feels about this tighter space #TemporalTues. settles down for the ride *

@mrrustymonkey: One more day #TemporalTues to cross some Mountains called Wicklow, to tour St Kevin's holy church in the town of Glendalough.

@mrrustymonkey: Then it's home #TemporalTues, for Dublin's goodbye pint(s) of beer. We'll lift our glasses to good health & we'll shout it's Irish cheer!

@mrrustymonkey: "Slainte #TemporalTues, slainte my friend!"

@mrrustymonkey * as the plane takes off, he wiggles out of the purse for a final look @ the #TemporalTues landscape below. oh, it's so perfectly green! *

@mrrustymonkey: * whispers to #TemporalTues, " The craic was ninety." ;-) *

@mrrustymonkey: Oh #TemporalTues time machine, I saw 40 shades of green! :-) And now it's time to sing....view video

@mrrustymonkey: many months later, he still cannot forget his much needed #TemporalTues escape, now a beautiful memory from his once upon a time. *

@mrrustymonkey: he skips off humming a magical tune that he can't seem to get out of his #TemporalTues head…view video


211th Temporal Tuesday - 21 January

@mrrustymonkey: * a bell rings somewhere in the #TemporalTues twitterverse. the monkey doll hears a muted trumpet sound ...

@mrrustymonkey: ... the sound of his teacher's voice ( Charles Schulz "Peanuts" style ) calling his class to line up for #TemporalTues homeroom *

@mrrustymonkey: * But he continues to sit there in his cafeteria chair, making monkey faces @ his new #TemporalTues friend. *

@mrrustymonkey: * Just a few more precious moments now before they're in trouble, again. This is his seat on the #TemporalTues time machine *

@mrrustymonkey: Today on this #TemporalTues, I have a best friend! Don't think I've had one before? It's 1974.

@mrrustymonkey: Her name is Charlotte #TemporalTues. She's so friendly & kind. She talks way too much, but I really don't mind.

@mrrustymonkey: She's smart & she's funny #TemporalTues & even speaks a little French. At recess, playing hopscotch... well, she's a cinch!

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, she plays piano & knows most of my classical songs. For the very first time I fit in, I belong...

‏@mrrustymonkey: ...to a group #TemporalTues. I've found someone like me. I have someone to share special times with you see.

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, we always challenge each other. We're a perfectly matched pair. We speak sign language to each other, right through the air!

@mrrustymonkey: We're like... peas & carrots #TemporalTues or 1 + 1 = 2. We're like sparkly glitter all mixed in with glue! :-)

@mrrustymonkey: She makes me smile #TemporalTues. I hope we'll always be friends - the very bestest of friends till the very, very end. :)

@mrrustymonkey: * skips ahead almost 40 #TemporalTues years on into the future, to the present day of now *

@mrrustymonkey: * scrolls through Facebook, stopping on a rather somber #TemporalTues post. reads it again & then again until it fully sinks in. *

@mrrustymonkey: * goes back later to tag his old childhood friend in a very sunny & happy #TemporalTues photo from long, long ago *

@mrrustymonkey: "There you are my old childhood friend. This is how I always think of you #TemporalTues, as you were in 1974."

@mrrustymonkey: "You were that new little girl in our 3rd grade class. You were so smart & so friendly & so very funny #TemporalTues."

@mrrustymonkey: "You challenged me to do better at everything, but mostly you made me smile #TemporalTues."

‏@mrrustymonkey: "You are a good soul Miss Charlotte. You will be missed #TemporalTues."

@mrrustymonkey: Oh #TemporalTues time machine, for my old childhood friend it's time to sing... (song link)
