The day after Lucas shows Duster a book about the Runaway Five, Duster wakes up in the afternoon. It's not unusual for him, but he has to talk to Lucas. He spent the rest of his waking hours looking over a newspaper he received from the bar after asking for something specifically written about Porky in the era before Tazmily.

He skips breakfast and heads straight to the gardens, where he's sure Lucas is, carrying the newspaper with him.

The gardener is indeed out at work, watering the plants (and himself!) in these dog days of summer. He doesn't stay wet for long, the sun making quick work of his sogginess.

Lucas doesn't hear him approach, but he does catch his friend when he turns his head.

"Hey Duster!" he greets, waving a free, gloved hand.

"Didja find something?" he asks, pointing to the newspaper.

Lucas puts his gardening stuff down and takes off his gloves. He steps closer to look at the photo.

"Wow. That's him, isn't it?"

He looks it over, fixated on the picture.

"Wow. He looks like he's my age in this."

"There were the Porkybots," Lucas points out. "They really do look like him."

He leans closer to the picture, trying to see the people on the roof.

Lucas has had a few months to stew on it, as well as friends in Milliways to hash things out.

"I wonder how this picture was taken."

"Or maybe they had their own flyin' gizmo. Wonder how hard it was to get a helicopter or something like it back then."

Lucas shrugs. "I dunno." He sighs softly. "And I wonder who those people on the roof are. Can you tell if the same person in those pictures from the cinema is there?"

"I bet he's on there. But we can't really tell, I guess. Were there any other papers?"

"Oh hey!" he goes, leaning closer to read. "Looks like they had another singer with 'em for this one."

"It says her name's Venus," Lucas points out, putting a finger to the article.

"Maybe we should look her up, too. I mean, who knows what we'd find?"

If nothing else, Duster seems to like this trail of investigation.

"Ah! But we do have more names to look up now, don't we? We can add 'em to my list and look 'em up later."

He'll scan the article for that later.

Lucas chuckles a little. Some things never change.

"Okay," he says, bending down to gather his gardening things. "I'm just about finished here."

"Any luck on the photo?" Lucas asks once he's finished up his chores.

Meanwhile, Lucas looks through his pockets for his list. Once he does, he smooths it out and adds the names Venus and Monotoli.
