I meant to get my entry in right away this week, but two weeks past due, my daughter finally delivered a gorgeous, 7lb 6oz baby boy. Our hearts are full. I’m always thankful to Rochelle for her commitment to Friday Fictioneers, and grateful to the wonderful writing crowd who welcomed me back so kindly last week. As always, I welcome honest, constructive feedback. Please leave a comment.

“Ruthie, where are you going? It’s dark out there.”
“I’ve got to go to the bathroom; I’ll be right back.”
“Again? You just went a half hour ago.” Jeff set his book down. “At least take a head lamp, there are critters out there.”
Unzipping the tent, Ruth grabbed the toilet paper and a flashlight.
“I swear, tomorrow I’m not drinking anything after six. I hate going out at night.”
“A hot drink definitely warms you when you’re camping, but then you gotta teapee!” Jeff guffawed as Ruth hid behind a sagebrush, sighing with relief.
