Home Country

by Slim Randles   This is going to be good, Dud thought, bringing his new tarp out to the car. There it was on that computer site. How to camp out with just a single tarp.

Then, when it was time for bed, Dud smiled to himself and rolled up in a corner of it. The guys at the Mule Barn were a bit surprised to see him back so early in the morning, as he’d told them he’d be camping out. “You look disgruntled, Dud,” said Doc, kindly. “I lost every gruntle...
