A Halloween Tale... of Horror!

My sister thought it was going to be a special day ... [cue ominous music] but she did not realize just how "special" it would be.

The morning bore great promise for my sister.

She received her white coat and posed for pictures with her class.

Seriously, you guys, I am such a great photographer. I don't know why the school didn't pay me for these shots. Look how artfully I captured this guy's right shoulder.



She posed for happy family pictures.

First with my mom (and me).

Then with my dad (and uncle and cousin and me).

We drove safely past some really boring stuff.


And past the dangerous farm implements.



She thought she was safe.

But then we got to our destination, and my sister realized what was in store for her.



She fought a brave fight.



For a moment, she thought she might even win.



But in the epic struggle of cat versus eyeballs, the cat always wins.


HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Good god; that cat is enormous! What are you feeding that thing??

And nice disclaimer. You don't know any lawyers, do you? ;-)

Hee! I LOVE the kitty! And your disclaimer cracked me up - especially the "no cats or eyeballs" bit.

The lawyer in you just had to come out on this fine Halloween Tale... Cute!

Nice legal mumbo jumbo (that's what we lay (wo)men call it).

Cats claws and eyeballs are never a good mix. (sounds like a lyric from a country song...)

Does commenting an hour after 2 gin & tonics constitute drunk comments? Um...I don't think so. Just in case, though - wahoo for cats and eyeballs!

"Cat vs. eyeball."

Awesome. HA. (Although secretly, I was hoping for more pics of the Halloweenified House, too. BAH!)
