Strip 696

MADRID (Past)     So what is it you want me to do?

RICHARD (Past)    There’s a person in the village who I suspect of being a rebel spy.


RICHARD (Past)    I want you to follow him and find any possibility of treasonous activity.

MADRID (Past)     You can count on me.


(Nick leans in wearing his “kiss the cook” apron, waving a pair of barbeque tongs.)

NICK (Past)    Hey kids, the hot dogs are ready!

MADRID (Past)         Excellent, I’m starving.


NICK (Past)    It just wouldn’t be the 4th of July without a good barbeque.

RICHARD (Past)    And I have fireworks for later.
