The time travellers hunting party arrived late again.  Late Cretaceous by the look of it.

The Airship headed into the thunderstorm but only ashes flew out the other side.

The nature of the contoversy was down to the age of the specimen in question, which by all accounts could be anywhere between thirty-thousand to a hundred-thousand years old in accordance with the newly discovered pre-historic burial grounds in which it lay. The matter would not usually be worthy of note--dating of specimens, I am told, is often postponed until upon return to facilities better equipped for such determination--were it not for the fact that the chap was still alive.

He looked at his robot creation with joy, for they had thought he couldn't do it, they had thought he was too young, too weak to handle the work of great minds. Suddenly, the robot crashed through the wall and continued down the lane with constant cranking sounds as it went, and that was the last time it was seen.

"No, no, no." Said Professor Jones in a very-high-pitched voice. "You're supposed to fill the airships canopy with helium, not the gondola..."

Our captain isn't familiar with the concept of privacy. It both caused the mutiny and doomed it to failure.

The temporal discontinuity regulator had opened a doorway to extraordinary adventures. But he had not anticipated having to redraft his family tree on a Mobius strip.

After Mr. Higs-Bosun pulled down the heavy Lead & Copper lever there was a flash of blinding, crackling, sparking flash and then two adult humanoid figures apported into the sterile chamber, after being physically tested & questioned (about the future, the two men were sent back to their own time) all information was dispacted to The Home Office to be sealed until Mr. Higs-Buson died...for those, who are interested...Mr Higs-Bosun died at the age of of 175 yrs old.
But Messers Higs & Bosun appeared in an orphanage as 6 month old babies, they were neither separable or related to each other even to Mr. Higs-bosun, but they separately shared his DNA & were the spitting image of him & together continued his work

My apologies to Mr. RD, for using his post.

Borrowing the time machine was going to be an extremely embarrassing mess. Still, for the sake of causality, it had to be done.

He was a bounder after all; what was the top deck of the Airship for if not salacious encounters. It seemed that his mechanical adaptations were proving quite an attraction for those with an adventurous nature...and a head for heights.

The tyrant looked down from the turret of his castle, at all the engine sheds where there once had been fields. His face was long and sad, as he cursed the bookshop which had sold "Raising Steam."

The Captain walked into the pub, his escort around him. "The target must be here," he thought, as he flicked his wrist blades into position.

Wrist-blades are such a delicate devious devices and should be employed only by those trained in such matters. Unfortunately the Captain had failed to appreciate the subtleties of such arcane weapons; as became clear when his head fell neatly to the floor.

"Well played sir, well played!" The genius exclaimed, rubbing his palms together. He slowly pulled out his stave and made the head roll across the floor.

After a second or two, a piece of parchment appeared. After many decades of research the words were finally translated...the message was "Please do not litter, take it all home with you".

Nostalgia isn't what it used to be, then again, it isn't what it will be either.  It's just one of the many adjustments time travellers have to make.

Whilst the rest of the Captain's body lay in an untidy heap, his head was still ruminating over the many adjustments that would have to be made. Clearly his future may be limited to non-operational business but he had no intention of remaining in sport for any longer than absolutely necessary - certainly no longer than the requisite 18 holes.

The mechanical lions abandoned the base of Nelson's column, chasing the people hither and thither. But it was coal they needed for food, and not human flesh.

The mechanised Nelson turned a blind eye to the fate of the pigeons.  To be fair, most statues would.
