MIA....Have you seen this boy?

Last seen in the early morning hours of 9/23/06, sitting in a fishing boat eagerly awaiting JunkFest shoppers. "Sambo" was wearing chippy red pants, a dirty yellow shirt, no shoes and a painted on smile. While Sambo never spoke much, he was our rock. As our mascot, he pointed the way for those out-of-towners looking for great junk treasures. His disappearance remains an unsolved mystery. Unfortunately, computerized images showing what he might look like today indicate that he probably has not aged in appearance; however, our fears are concrete: that his life has been shattered, crumbled beyond recognition. If you have any information regarding the where-abouts of our beloved friend, please contact local law enforcement or call 1-800-SAVE-SAMBO. Won't you please help bring Sambo back to JunkFest?

  1. Ummm.... I have bad news. I think I might have seen in the back of a cement recycler. Alas, I did not know he was missing or I would have called the cement police. You are all in my prayers at this pulverizing time.

  2. Jenny, I greatly appreciate your condolences. I only hope that the culprits accidentally dropped Sambo on their toes! He was quite heavy....
