The Foot of Carlos O'Brien (Halloween)

tinfoilhatOctober 20, 2010

This is a permanent fixture in my yard but I thought Halloween would be a good time to post it.

Here lies the foot of Carlos O'Brien, dynamite fisherman and Sangria wine lover.

All I found of him after a night fishing trip was his foot. I buried it here at the pond he loved and fished. I have seen his ghost wandering the pond at night in search of his missing foot. The next day my wife finds empty Sangria bottles around the pond, gives me the look, and says the ghost of Carlos O'Brien must have paid us a visit last night.

Very cool!! Leave him a note & tell him to leave you some fish! You can make a bottle tree & wall around the area if he keeps leaving bottles! LOL Jan

Gotta love Sangria! A man after my own heart. Love the cowboy boot with flowers in it. Is the fire hydrant a memorial for someone else?
