Does anyone want to help with a little web-based hunt?
A few years ago, I got some used comics for my own kids. I got the comics (I think) at the Granite State Comicon in New Hampshire in 2013.
Anyway, one of the comics has a note inscribed in it, and I thought it might be fun to try to reunite the comic with the person who got the note. The internet and social media seems to be a good tool for this type of thing. So here are the facts, please feel free to help me out and to solve this little mystery.
1- The comic was published in the 1973, Walt Disney Comics Digest Special. The comic features Donald Duck and his family. (Scrooge McDuck, Huey, Dewey, and Louie, etc.)
2- Inside the front page, the note reads: “Michael- Scott + I have gone to Hockey. Go in the house next door- do NOT cut the pumpkin until Dad gets home- Mom.”. So the clues are that the the person (boy) who received the note was Michael. He had a brother (probably a brother) named Scott, and that he lived with his parents.
3- Probably (but we are not sure) the note was written in the 1970’s when the comic book was published. There is a good chance that it was a family living in the North-East. Although neither of these are confirmed.
4- Mom’s handwriting is bold and neat.
5- Other clues: The note was probably written around Halloween or Thanksgiving (with the reference to a pumpkin and hockey).
So feel free to forward this, either through your own blog or social media and let’s see if we can find Michael! The comic is sitting at my desk in a ziplock bag and I will mail it to him if we can ever figure out who he is.
ps: I realize that there are a lot of Michaels and Scotts in this world and that many families have hockey practice and buy pumpkins, so I realize that this might all be unresolvable, and that’s fine. If nothing else, it’s something fun to consider for a few minutes.
thanks all- Armand
