Orion escaped from the back yard on Tuesday. No wonder -- my mom said she saw him studying his map and compass last time she was here. I knew I shouldn't have bought those for him. Luckily he didn't get very far before the neighbours found him -- just two houses down. He was busy drinking out of their new pond. He was probably fishing in there too for all I know. We think he was able to jimmy open the gate by hitting the latch with his hand, err.. paw. Anyway, I have jimmy-proofed it ("Jimmy's thinking about asking Elaine out!"), so he shouldn't be able to get out anymore unless I leave it open.

In other news, it was wednesday yesterday, and I thought it was Tuesday all day. Weird.

The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.
