If you’ve been reading here for the last week or so you know that I’ve been obsessed with a tombstone I found at a thrift shop and felt bad about leaving in case it was stolen and also felt bad about buying in case it was stolen. So then I started investigating and after several ridiculous blog posts THE MYSTERY HAS BEEN SOLVED.
One of the many people I pestered was Clayton, who owns Sahra’s Find-a-Grave memorial and he went on a hunt and found a cousin who confirmed that the old stone tombstones were replaced after one was broken and that Sahra’s seems to have been salvaged and ended up in a thrift store. So..NOT STOLEN. Whoop!
He also had a great picture of Sahra and her husband and I think we also just solved the mystery of why Sahra’s husband doesn’t have a death date on his tombstone. It’s because he’s still alive and is currently Kurt Russell:
So, that means that it’s totally acceptable for me to buy the tombstone since it wasn’t stolen. Except that Victor says it means that I don’t need to buy the tombstone because it wasn’t stolen so it doesn’t need to be rescued.
So instead I’m just going to wait until the next time we go to that shop and if it’s still there it’s a sign that it needs to be adopted. And if it’s not there it’s a sign that Victor called ahead and asked them to hide it.
I am the Sherlock Holmes of mysteries that aren’t actually mysteries. The end.
