Night

Tired. Brought Houdini into the house yesterday evening because of severe thunderstorms. He stayed in overnight, with a brief sojourn outside around midnight. Side door left ajar with a bungee on it to keep it closed (there's a screen door to the inside); near midnight Smudge sounded off. Mamma Mudge, and Houdini, both bolted out the side door.

Went out to check, Mudge came back but not Houdini. Looked for him for a bit, no response to our calling and whistling. Headed back into the house and bed, Smudge sounded off again about 45 minutes later. Went out to check, here come's Houdini.

Glad he's OK.

Herself tells me there's a new sinkhole over in the cattle paddock. Joy.

Big wheel keep on turning,
Proud Mary keep on burning,
Rolling, rolling, rolling on the river.

I haven't seen it yet. She says it's big enough to hold all our cows out of sight. Makes it pretty big, we've got 10 cows (admitting that a few are heifers).

He disappeared once before for a week and a half. Hasn't done that since, but has chased some things over to our neighbor's side. I expect that's what he did last night.

Still.

It's a possibility. We may need to fence off the hole.

Still, welcome to North Central Baja Jorja, a karsk geological formation (limestone). That means caves, and sinkholes. We've got 'em.

Yah, a lot of caves in North Central Baja Jorja. Thing is, to go explore them? Well, let's just ask How long can you hold your breath?
