Brother Oliver is back at The Bad Place this morning for a recheck on his eye. His eye was cloudy and irritated on Friday morning when the Guardians first took him to The Bad Place. The Guardians didn’t know what had happened, and I overheard them saying that the good people at The Bad Place people didn’t know either, but that the meds Brother O has been since Friday seem to be clearing up the problem. I also heard them say that so far all of the tests on Brother Oliver’s blood had come back negative, which seemed to be good news. I expect that his recheck today won’t be too traumatizing.
Anyway, Brother Oliver had planned to release the next image in his Whiskered Gallantry series today, so he was crestfallen when he realized he was going to The Bad Place instead. When I told him I would post it for him, he cheered up and said, “Thanks Leader O! Please be sure to post my description of the photo too, so everyone understands what I was going for!” I told him I would. So, without further ado, here is Brother Oliver’s description of his latest work, followed by the work itself.
Statement from Brother Oliver
In a recent photo session with Sir Thomas, the subject of my Whiskered Gallantry series, my eyes were drawn upward to his ears. Once I focused on them, I couldn’t look away. They looked like they had a full set of whiskers of their own! It was a challenge to get Sir Thomas to keep his ears still long enough to capture the image I envisioned. He kept thinking every small sound he heard might be a wiener dog trying to sneak up on him, and his ears would swing this way and that to better listen to the possible threat. But after a grueling 9 hour shooting session, I finally got it. I give you Ears of the Knight!
There you have it, My Disciples. I don’t know about you, but I am absolutely blown away by that stunning ear foliage! I wonder how Sir Thomas gets it all to stick out like that. Hmmm… perhaps those hissing noises I sometimes hear coming from Kitty Valhalla are actually the sound of a can of hairspray!
