The Saga Continues...




Fall is here, but it's still summer in Three Craters Lake, and The Inquiring Minds Big Summer Adventure is in full swing with big changes and big events happening right now!

After all these years, will Iris finally become a full fledged member of The Inquiring Minds, changing the balance of power forever? Will Bobby and Albert ever get this theme park finished and running, especially now that a looming deadline has been imposed?

Don't know what I'm talking about? Read the strips below, and some of your questions will be answered. :0) And if you have no clue whatsoever, then please visit the official home page for The Inquiring Minds Big Summer Adventure for the whole story. :0)

Cheers, JOHN :0)

I have to be honest, I thought she already was.

Brian,

It's been a long running part of the strip that The Inquiring Minds's charter says they cannot do anything without a majority vote.

Given Albert's fearlessness and Bobby's cowardice, anything put to a vote usually goes nowhere. And given that Bobby has always had a crush on Iris, Albert, until now, would never give his consent to making her a full member because he knows that he would become a third wheel in his own club!

It being a free country, Iris has followed them everywhere they go, partly from the fun of it, but also because she isn't going to let some boy tell her what she cannot do. :0)

It's all in the strips, but since many of the strips are no longer online, I guess only I remember all this stuff. :0)

Did I ever send you the full color Inquiring Minds comic book? If so, you might want to read it as a refresher course.

OR... you can wait until the new book comes out, sometime in the unpredictable future!

Thanks, though, for writing. It's good to know someone besides me reads this blog. :0)

Cheers, JOHN :0)

Ahem...you could be right.

Brian,
Noone knows The Inquiring minds like I do. Invariably, I may be assuming that the audience knows as much as I do, and going from there.

I probably should have treated this as a stand alone project, and made a bigger deal of the fact that Iris wasn't actually a full fledged member.

Then again, the comic book is out there. Is it my fault that few have read it. :0)

I got enough problems, but hopefully I will finish the story up soon and all will be forgiven as the excitement is unveiled. :0)

Cheers, JOHN :0)
