"So it's agreed, first we try a net, then try the pit and if they fail, we get the cows!" (I wonder what my lance is doing now...)

“So it’s agreed, first we try a net, then try the pit and if they fail, we get the cows!” (I wonder what my lance is doing now…)

"Hey! Where'd it go!?" "AFTER IT!!" (You could make a nice lance with that wood.)

“Hey! Where’d it go!?” “AFTER IT!!” (You could make a nice lance with that wood.)

Aghhhh!

Aghhhh!

Snap!

Aha!

Aha!

oh!

"TRRRRRRRUMPET" "Maybe it is a dragon" "I'm getting my lance!"

“TRRRRRRRUMPET” “Maybe it is a dragon” “I’m getting my lance!”

“The Hunt!” is to be continued! Watch for it!

I am breaking up The Hunt! into 7 manageable parts. I hope you enjoy it and will share it with your friends, relatives, and colleagues. You needn’t do any ear lending if you don’t want to.

“Varever I go it is alvays thee same. I get harassment.”

"Ah knights! We're glad you are here. I would like you to meet..."

“Ah knights! We’re glad you are here. I would like you to meet…”

I thought I would do something special for Halloween. The result was “Vlad!” I’m breaking it up and posting in small instalments. The plan is that it wraps up by the night of the 31st — at least in the Pacific Daylight Time-zone.

Look for part 5, the conclusion, tomorrow!

I hope you enjoy this and share it around!

I hope you enjoy these and I would really appreciate your spreading the word. My stories are spread by word-of-mouth so this is the way that others might also see them.

This strip was published previously as “Wheel Tales of We’ll Make Cents” but we thought it would be better to publish more independently — hence the change in venue and name.

We'll Make CentsWe were originally published in “We’ll Make Cents“. They are an organization that helps support a number of not-for-profit causes which might get overlooked. Why not pop over and give them a look

Donations are actually hard to come by for Charities and other not-for-profit organizations. Consider what you might be able to donate. It might be a good time to clean that closet, attic, cellar, shed, or garage! You might have someone else’s next treasured possession. Perhaps you don’t live near Auckland and We’ll Make Cents, but there are people in need everywhere!
