Halloween Night

Interesting day today – had to fast, then give about a beaker full of blood to the evil doctor guy.  The poor tech was a little nonplussed that I watched the vials fill up….guess he isn’t used to that.  I don’t mind the sight of my blood, not that I see it that often.  I think the last significant time was when Gus bit the crap out of me a couple of years back.

So I took a bit of a nap instead of dinner.  There aren’t a lot of trick or treaters here anyway, the only knock on the door was at 9 pm which is a bit late.  I didn’t answer, since I had no candy.  It was enough to scare Gus for a while anyhow.

Those Kids should Get OFFA MY LAWN!

When I took it, I thought that the first pic was a bit spoiled since the flash was blocked some by the vertical banister supports.  But it turns out I like the way it looks.  Sue me.

I took a good picture of her on the landing if you prefer too.

When I was napping, I did see that Calla has found a new place to hang out some times.  The trunk of the tree – cat tree is hollow and can fit a cat, and she has been hanging out in the stump like a squirrel.  It’s seriously cute, and I even got a little play time in there with a  wand toy before I read some H. P. Lovecraft on the Kindle – The Case of Charles Dexter Ward.

Well,  it is Halloween!

  1. We hope you’re ok! It never matters how much or little blood they take from me, I always have to nap..
    I like that first picture of Calla, the shadow is interesting! Of course, she can’t take a bad picture.
    MOL, ol’ man Gus, get offa my lawn!


  2. I hope you are alright. I’m not one who likes the site of blood or anything. Would have made a terrible doctor.
    I think the photos came out brilliantly.

      It was just a semi-routine visit, but on Halloween so I was thinking of vampires. The guy taking blood was new, and dropped the needle thing on the floor, so he had to get a new one. Then there are four test vials to fill up, Female nurses tend to chat more so maybe they don’t notice, or don’t mind me watching.

      I’m on a diet that is supposed to improve some blood levels that the doc has been watching for a while. Doc is happy with progress, so time to see if the levels move too.

    You are amazing for watching the blood. I’m a great one for being real, in the moment — but not that real. I hope your blood stays inside you from now on. And that first photo of Calla has atmosphere — her peeking around the shadow. I basically love it. The other one lacks the mystery, for me.

    Calla and her pretty big eyes as usual! 🙂
    hope the nap made you feel better!

    The first photo of Calla is great! The flash makes her look all mysterious and exotic. Plus it cuts down on the overexposure from that lovely white chest/tummy so you see other details.

    I’m with Gus about the kids.
