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)

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)
