Please return our pots
Sherley, Knysna Heights:
It is now months since the fires and since my house has been gone. I walk for exercise and continue to search for our pots, by peering over garden walls. A few weeks ago, I was sure I had found them – three pots so like ours – on display in a private garden.
I rushed home to get a camera in order to do a comparison once I had taken a photo. Sadly, they were similar but I could not claim them as ours. Thank heaven I didn’t embarrass myself by knocking on the owners’ front door.
And so the search continues, and I have no doubt that one day we will find them. It’s not about the pots – the drive to find them is that those three pots were the only things that survived the fire and are all we had left from the home we had recently renovated and moved into.
Ed note: This is the second letter Sherley has written to us and she lives in hope that whoever took these pots gives them back as they are hugely sentimental to her. How about this: if you know where these pots are, just put them back on the pavement.
