Dinner time!

Chuck made us a dinner gong last weekend in the smithy. I am grateful to have a dinner gong, and even more grateful that we are living the kind of life that makes a dinner gong a useful accessory. We have the freedom to roam out our front door, and a safe natural environment to roam in.

Fiona was really hungry yesterday and wanted to ring the gong to summon supper. Nice try! It's a unidirectional message that summons family members to supper, not the other way around.

I did eventually feed her.

  5. Doesn't look like it'd *GONG* much. How loud does it get?

  6. Oh, it's really loud. Think of the penetrating sound of an orchestral triangle, but at a lower pitch, rife with overtones.
