The old settlers would overturn their buggy once the horses been rested, so Grandma said. That way, they'd have some shelter when storms drove over the plains.
I haven't got the bones for that. Besides, if I got to go back to town - wait! What was that?.

No, that crack became a rumble and you can almost see it in the darkness, rolling along the edges of the night, from one side to the other like some giant black beast...
Better stop that: imagining things. No giant black beasts out here.

    Haha I hope she's right! Thanks for all your comments Neville, I really appreciate you sticking with this. It seems to have taken on a life of its own, as they do, but I reckon there's light at the end of the tunnel... Thanks again :)
