The vibration of hooves pounding on the earth makes you realize the time. Your dusty bottle of sarsaparilla soda starts to shake. You grab it and take one last draw before walking out of the saloon. Tin containers on a shelf labeled with things like clove, nutmeg and black tea catch your eye as you saunter past the general store. The clerk isn’t looking so you grab a handful of nuts from a barrel and put them in you pocket for later. Patting your horse as you near, you’re entertained by the scent of the new saddle. Before riding off, you tip your hat to the children playing at the ice cream shoppe and smirk at their fudge and whipped cream smeared grins.
