“Whoa, the actor, Ronald Reagan, was President? I’ve been to the future before, but I never got a chance to figure out who all was President, and so forth. I’m still getting over those tiny call phones, and VCR disks.”
“Actually, they are called cell phones, and VCRs are almost dead now for the most part. It’s DVDs and Blu-rays,” Time-Rider clarified.
“Sure thing, old me. Say, I just realized, I finally started to age. Not sure if I should be happy about that, or worried.”
“Never mind that, Agent Martin. Wait a minute. Of course, Clinton was President in ’95.”
“Bingo, bingo! You’ve just answered the million dollar question!” Max said in a recorded voice that sounded just like the late comedian and game show host, Groucho Marx.

“Yes, and I find that very troubling. The best I can figure is there’s another timeline that I, we, lived in that I’m not even familiar with. The idea that I had yet another whole life that I can’t remember is mind boggling. Tell me, have you met Jill, yet, Agent Martin?”

Just then, Max interrupted once again, “Dum, dum, de dum, dum, dum, dum, dum,” as he hummed the Presidential theme. Max continued, “Boy was that a dum thing to do.”
“What!” Agent Martin yelled. “Spit it out!”
As if Agent Martin’s anger had scared Max into compliance, an image on the computer screen lit up with President Bill Clinton talking to a general next to one of ATTA’s smaller time portals.
