    Lynn’s Notes:
    At this time in the evolution of the strip, I decided to have Mike’s friend, Gordon, be a bit of a negative force. In my mind, all of the auxiliary characters were becoming clear and defined, and it seemed right for Gordon Mayes to have some baggage. Something in his life made him cynical and tougher than the other kids, but I hadn’t yet figured out what it was. It sounds unbelievable, but these characters evolved on their own. In a way, they told me who they were and how they lived.

    That’s good background to know, Lynn. These earlier strips are new to me as I started following it when the kids were a bit older and Gordon had already “evolved” into a more responsible person. Thanks for the info!

    I saw this too and responded at her site;
    " It sounds unbelievable, but these characters evolved on their own. In a way, they told me who they were and how they lived."
    Nothing unbelievable about that to anyone who has written ;-) I’ve lost track of how many of my stories took off in unexpected directions because a character suddenly had a mind of his/her own, and all I could do was hang on for the ride ;-)

    Uh oh… Well time to have a talk with him about what he knows and when it is appropriate or not to use those words.

    You learn more of those bad 4-letter words in school than in a game arcade.
