Lost "Bob" Our Friend and Dummy

Post by playawifey » Fri Sep 27, 2013 10:09 am

Hi Folks...

We are looking for our friend and dummy, "Bob" (see photo at https://scontent-a-sjc.xx.fbcdn.net/hph ... 1180_n.jpg). You may have seen "Bob" at our camp at 6:15 and G. "Bob" was "Praying for a Miracle" for 10 days at our camp and made many new friends. He went "missing" really "taken" on Saturday. We know this is a late report for a lost item, but everyone said "Bob" was very unlikely to be found or returned. But, I'm hoping and I guess "Praying for a Miracle" now, that our friend "Bob" will come home. "Bob" had really become part of our family. He was hangin' out in our yard at home, welcoming visitors and enjoying the easy life. People really looked forward to seeing "Bob" when they came over. Friends and family knew "Bob" was going to Burning Man and they looked forward to hearing of his adventures. They were sad like we are to hear "Bob" didn't make it back. It just isn't right, folks. We had some fun plans for the holidays and "Bob" was going to be dressed for the occasions. If you have "Bob" or know where he might be, please help us get him back home. We miss "Bob" and really hope our fellow Burners will help us get him home. We have posted on the Burning Man Facebook and if you can help us spread the word we would truly appreciate the help. Let's get a Burner home folks! I have faith that "Bob" is out there and with your help we can get him home.

Thank you very much!

He may have been cremated in the "church"

Its entirely possible he went walkabout trying to get to BobFest 2014. :mrgreen: Might look for him there?

We camped a few doors down on G. I saw Bob sitting in the shade structure and said hello several times while biking by on Friday pre-open.
He never responded and I just figured he was the quiet type till I walked over on Saturday to visit :oops:

i think he ran out to playa in his escape - then ripped down our Darth Vader head from our art, so that he could escape incognito

Well thats is what i'd prefer to think happened to our vader head. Rather than being stolen by self-entitled hippies!

He's probably earning some good cash for some entrepreneurial (I can't believe I just spelled that correctly the first try) burner.
