Summer, 2016.  Kathryne R observes

                 dark clouds gathering.

        Instantly, The Storm Chaser is on full alert. 

                                             Lightning bolts split the sky


                    but Kathryne is unfazed.

  The Calgary Cowboy listens to her story.

Adults smile, but The Calgary Princesses sense imminent danger.
They know from scary!

They contact THE LAREDO KID.

At first, he is confused.
Laredo Kid: Where's my sword? I need to fight!

N: You only fight bad guys right?

Laredo Kid: I need to fight Daddy! Bring him to me!

But common sense prevails.  He calls the Vancouver Talons.

They're in.

The Laredo Kid catches a serious ride . . .

Weaponizes . . .

 As does the Calgary Cowboy.

Oh, oh!


"Fear not, little one," soothes Princess Serenity. 

Meanwhile, in a briefing session with :

Laredo Kid:  We have to sneak up!

N: Ok. What are we sneaking up on?

Laredo Kid: the bad guys!

N: well what are we going to do once we have them?

Laredo Kid: tape them up!

N: so what did the bad guys do?

Laredo Kid: they fight!

N : who do they fight?

Laredo: the tapers! 

Okay then! and the chase is on.

the Quarry!

Of course, the Good Guys win . . .  

 You just don’t mess with the Calgary Cowboy!

or the Princesses.

Ditto the Talons!

And the Laredo Kid!
