the virginia muggies
hey! so i've been out there a couple of times since i last wrote - jogging up and down my limited trails. it's been rather humid, hot during the afternoons, and there's been some worry about air quality. with work, the best time for me to get in a quick run is first thing when i get up - about 6 a.m. when it's still cool. i've been delighted to see several of our forrest rascals out there: angry beavers slapping their tails when i've stumbled by, crunching noisily on the gravel trail. foxy loxy has peered at me a few times, and i know i've been excitingly close to mr. skunk, but luckily have not had the pleasure of coming face to face. i had to test my jedi skills the other day when i almost landed a step ontop of a snake hurrying across my path. best to remember we're not alone out there and to stay aware!
