For a car filled with four teenagers and a middle-aged couple headed north, it was remarkably quiet.
I don't know how you girls do it," a voice said, and I turned around and saw him, sitting by the wall in a metal chair, a worn, green hat in his hands. He wore khaki pants and a working man's boots and his shirt was blue. Once a farmer, maybe, I didn't know, but something told me he was somebody who liked being outdoors. A woman came up beside me and asked to go around. I was in the way. I sat down.
