Carter Gets Dressed


The last time I went to Hawaii – back in 2011 – our house got broken into. One of the reasons was because they could look in the back door and see my laptop..

After that we bought a screening device so people could not see where I usually sit – well, most of where I usually sit. If you are standing at the back door you can see my legs and feet.

So we thought why not let them see legs and feet, even though we are not here? We dressed Carter up in the other half’s ugly bogan jeans and an awesome Carter themed tee.

We sat him in my chair. There was only one minor problem – my parents were going to be dropping in to feed the cats. So I had to put notes up on the door to remind them of Carter, because he can seriously freak you out – even when you do know he is there but accidentally forget.

I have been known to do the little jump and scream.

Carter had a great time, hanging out, watching teevee – of course we left the teevee on for the cats, plus to have sound in case anyone was checking out if people were in the house.

Carter, travel

Meet Carter

So I bought me a little friend at Costco.

This is Carter, my skeleton friend.


Back when I was getting along with everyone at work, and when I was doing the overnight shift, Carter spent a few over-nights sitting out in my car. It was hilarious because people would suddenly notice him as they were walking past my car, and let out bloodcurdling screams, or perhaps do a little freak out jump.

Carter, funny, work
