It had been a long day of walking through the auburn jungle for Billy Bob and the other young ‘uns.

Thanks for playing my story. Just one point, a word obviously got dropped across emails, it is actually called “A Long Time ‘Til Spring” 🙂
A nice post-apocalypse story, Dennis Lane.
Personally, I enjoyed the transition from hearing stories you narrated to hearing one you both wrote and read aloud.
