Margaret EdwardsI can aimagine how happy that child was to stroll with this creature. What fun!

Elizabeth TaylorAnd proud to say she is a part of our wonderful team at Carleton Place Carleton Place Terrace

Laurissa AnneSaw that this morning! My son loved it! He was like “omg mom! It’s a dinosaur!” Absolutely made his day!

Courtney is one of the good people of Carleton Place and she loves to make people smile. She works at the Carleton Place Terrace and the seniors enjoy her costumes and especially her. She is one of the folks that has a wonderful way to show us really what matters. Thank you Courtney!

So why were you photographed walking down the street with your dinosaur costumes? We would love to know.

My daughter was bored and restless because of the lock down. I put it on to play outside and she wanted to go for a walk. People started honking she was so happy and I have another costume on order so we can do it again. At work (Carleton Place Terrace) the residents are depressed missing their family’s so I thought it would make then smile. Whether they were laughing at me or with me they were happy. 


 They always ask me what I’ll be next! Liz and I organized a dance flash mob for nurses week for the residence in the dining room I have more pictures of you interested …. keep a eye out Alexis and I will be walking around soon with a new costume making people smile. In a time like this is important mental health sometimes needs a little extra help hope that helps.

Thank you Courtney!!!

About lindaseccaspina

Linda Knight Seccaspina was born in Cowansville, Quebec about the same time as the wheel was invented and the first time she realized she could tell a tale was when she got caught passing her smutty stories around in Grade 7 at CHS by Mrs. Blinn. When Derek "Wheels" Wheeler from Degrassi Jr. High died in 2010, Linda wrote her own obituary. Some people said she should think about a career in writing obituaries. Before she laid her fingers to a keyboard, Linda owned the eclectic store Flash Cadilac and Savannah Devilles in Ottawa from 1976-1996. After writing for years about things that she cared about or pissed her off she finally found her calling. Is it sex drugs and rock n' roll you might ask? No, it is history. Seeing that her very first boyfriend in Grade 5 (who she won a Twist contest with in the 60s) is the head of the Brome Misissiquoi Historical Society and also specializes in local history back in Quebec, she finds that quite funny. She writes every single day and is also a columnist for Hometown News and Screamin's Mamas. She is a volunteer for the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum, an admin for the Lanark County Genealogical Society Facebook page, and a local guest speaker. She has been now labelled an historian by the locals which in her mind is wrong. You see she will never be like the iconic local Lanark County historian Howard Morton Brown, nor like famed local writer Mary Cook. She proudly calls herself The National Enquirer Historical writer of Lanark County, and that she can live with. Linda has been called the most stubborn woman in Lanark County, and has requested her ashes to be distributed in any Casino parking lot as close to any Wheel of Fortune machine as you can get. But since she wrote her obituary, most people assume she's already dead. Linda has published six books, "Menopausal Woman From the Corn," "Cowansville High Misremembered," "Naked Yoga, Twinkies and Celebrities," "Cancer Calls Collect," "The Tilted Kilt-Vintage Whispers of Carleton Place," and "Flashbacks of Little Miss Flash Cadilac." All are available at Amazon in paperback and Kindle. Linda's books are for sale on Amazon or at Wisteria · 62 Bridge Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada, and at the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum · 267 Edmund Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada--Appleton Museum-Mississippi Textile Mill and Mill Street Books and Heritage House Museum and The Artists Loft in Smith Falls.
