You gotta make friends

Sometimes you cross paths with folk that you don't have much in common with but just instantly like.

That was the case for me when I met Hissy here when I was hiking out of Eno River Park last night around twilight. I don't think my admiration for him was returned and soon we departed and went off in different directions.

I'd like to think that both our lives were enriched by the experience but in the end I think Hissy just learned to stay away from hiking paths.

You might note that I was very sweaty. For some reason, even on relatively cool days, I just shed water like it's going out of style. It's a wonder I don't just melt away.

BTW, in case you're wondering what in 'ell that is around my neck, that's the keyless do-hicky for getting back into my car. I don't like the noise that car keys make jingling around in my pocket so I wear my "keys" around my neck while hiking.
