Last night Badger kept barking. After about 30 minutes of listening to him bark, pause, then bark again, I got out of bed and stepped onto the balcony to see what might be the issue. He didn’t sound particularly distressed, just wouldn’t stop barking.
Turns out there was a lot of fog in the deep valley where our house sits. The fog seemed to have an amplifier effect to it – every time Badger barked, he’d pause and then his own bark bounced back in fine acoustic quality. So he’d bark again.
I didn’t get a lot of sleep last night because of his echo.
Sorry I haven’t been posting much here, folks. I’ll try to get back to it, but first I’m going to take everything off this site except the blog. If you’re interested in herbalism, homesteading and survivalism you’ll want to follow the new blog at http://earthelder.wordpress.com. At the ancientearthwisdom blog I’ll just post my usual musings like the one above, pictures of kids and family life, and seasonal or whatever pictures I have for the week. I’ll try to make those posts every Sunday.
