It's before 4am. I've been up an hour.
It's foggy out and pitch black and dogs are barking. The fog amplifies the sound and there are more dogs starting up across the canyon.
So I'm thinking, I wonder how I could shut them up?
I open the flap on Hoggie's door (it's about chest high) and I let it slap at the end of it's travel.
That got their attention. SILENCE
Then I let out a very low pitched extended mantra like Ahhh.
It was an almost inhuman sound a la foghorn.
Guess What? It shut them up.
Trying new things keeps life interesting. :-)
And the point of this post is:
Try new things after you've quit. New things make it easier to embrace change, and, try the things we suggest when you get a craving.
