Rufert is the mule I spoke of in my last short and aborted tale. His candy has been a topic I think I ought to address.
Troy, the owner of a Bishop area grocery store, also owns livestock, and one creature among many is Rufert, a Bishop mule. He and the cows are fed and watered daily, and Rufert gets his ‘candy’ as a special, though daily, treat. “Empower” is the name of this special bag of feed, and he gets one coffee can’s worth of it/day.
