Meet Mr. Bones

Mr. Bones & Alphonse

 

This is Mr. Bones. For 11 months every year, he sits in my study, always available to ghost-write a blog or two for me if I get too busy, and always a great source of advice and encouragement. Right now, Mary has stripped him of his finery, separated him from Alphonse, his pet rat and familiar sitting on his shoulder, and banished him stark naked to the front porch with instructions to scare the crap out of any little kids he encounters. I'm sure he can't wait for this annual humiliation to be over, so he can get back inside where it's warm.



On the plus side, for the next several days, he gets to star in my profile picture. And just in case you were wondering, that is indeed a Liverpool fan scarf he's proudly wearing. You'll have to translate the family motto from the Latin on your own.

Too funny. You should dress him in the same clothes the man is wearing in the picture behind him!  Now that there would be funny!

Very cool looking dude, and it would scare the crap out of me too if I saw this guy sitting on a porch - or at a desk. That big hairy spider you have in your office also does the trick. Eeeks.

I actually think the rat on the shoulder is pretty scary. Maybe Mary should include that in her annual display.

I had to go back a few posts to find out what happened to Dick Greenberg and now I know! What the heck? Are those night goggles? What exactly is that bag of bones at the computer seeing with those goggles? And I was curious what was perched on the shoulder until I found out via Tammy White. Yikes! What happened to the dog feet in the photo? And why is the dog collar sitting on the desk?  I could find no translation to the inspirational message on the wall, and I was most disturbed by that torture treatment thing on the floor mentioned by Nicole Doty - Gilbert Real Estate Expert - Really? Mr. Bones, can I believe you that it's a Korean deck-mounted foot-operated foghorn? I WANT DICK BACK!!!

What a cleaver thought:)

I like Mr. Bones and I feel so sorry for him to be separate from his loved computer, pet and scarf....:) Few days left and he is happily back.

Some family motto.  Is that for Mr. Bones or the whole family?
