"Food really tastes good cooked over an open fire," Lloyd remarked as he took another bite of his hot dog.
"It sure does," replied Fred. "I wish this weren't the last night of our camping trip, but school starts next week. "
A couple of days after returning home, Lloyd and Fred took the exposed film out of their camera and took it to the camera shop to be developed. They were told that the pictures would be ready Thursday. Thursday was just two days away. Fred and Lloyd could hardly wait to see how their pictures came out.
