Outside the wind is howling and trying to blow every tree off of it’s roots. It has already claimed a few small branches in my yard. Luckily I am high up on a hill so at least I won’t flood.
My dog was growling so I looked outside the front window to see what was out there. My neighbor had a telescope out in his driveway. I don’t know if he was moving it or looking at some unidentified object bouncing around in the sky. I know for sure the eagles aren’t flying around today. The hawks were out early this morning but have now taken refuge in the larger trees, or in holes in the cliffs overlooking the lake.
Maybe it is just the full moon.
Speaking of full moons and Werewolves…I started reading “Werewolf” by Jonathan Maberry. I didn’t realize the book was based on a movie. I didn’t see the movie and suspect the book will be the better of the two. I’d heard of Jonathan Maberry through the HWA and knew writes short stories. I definitely need to check out the short stories. He also supports other authors. For that reason I decided to check out one of his books. So far so good. The book starts out fast and continues to hold my interest.
My favorite Werewolf book is “Wolf’s Hour” by Robert R. McCammon. Check it out when you get a chance. It is in my top 10, if not top 5 favorite books.
The wind just picked up again. Oranges and lemons are flying off of the trees in my back yard. With any luck they’ll roll down the hill, making for easy pick-up later.
Yes, I’m reading about Werewolves and watching fruit fly off of trees. All the while my dog is now at my feet snoring. She is no Werewolf. Despite her large size, and regal fierce look, my German Shepard Dog is a sweetheart with no desire to shift her shape.
By the way, if you didn’t already know (and most Vampires do know), Werewolf blood has an undertone of Bourbon taste to it. I don’t know why. I just know that is the way it is. No, I do not recommend anyone try to taste it on purpose. It is just best to leave Werewolves alone. They have enough to deal with as it is. Plus, if you bug them they’ll rip your throat out.
That is enough weirdness for today.
Stay safe. Check in on those who might need extra help or are alone. Talk to your kids. Hug your dogs, cats, or other critters. And kiss a Vampire. You’ll thank me for it later.

Another one I like!! Thanks for the information about Werewolf blood. *grin* Not, that I’d ever taste it… but good to know anyway.
I hope you never have to taste it. Yikes. Hope there aren’t any up north in your neck of the woods. I’ll send Max to protect you if they do show up.
OMG… I have a huge crush on Max… better be careful… I might say there were Werewolf sightings just to have them here to PROTECT me!
