Sara: The World Traveling Ceratopsian


Recommended Posts

I am quite happy to play what you lot will think is the villain here.

"oh, it's only a toy". "It's not important' "Send another one' "learn a lesson" "emotions running high". 

Toss.

There is a thoughtless person here, and it isn't me. 

Thanks guys for your support.

@dinosaur man I am now particularly interested that we carry on since I just found out that I'm next in line.

Adam, 

 

I am so sorry that this has happened. I can only imagine how this makes you feel. 

I do not see you as a villian.

You were a very good friend to Doren, and the fact that this was his pet project makes this more difficult. 

I am sorry. 

 

Please keep in mind, thoughtlessness does not equate to evil. 

I am sure it was an unintended mistake, that none the less, is terrible for those who knew Doren.  :(

It may help everyone to picture her running free, chomping vegetation with zest; and perhaps even encountering a handsome male of her ilk. Beyond that, there are some excellent insights above. I also believe that under such a circumstance, Doren could be relied upon to supply a perspective of laughter.

I honestly feel like a horrible person!

You are not a horrible person, just a careless oaf! There, I have issued all the recrimination you merit. Now you can forgive yourself and not worry about it from this point on.* Please do not let a slip-up spoil your enjoyment of fossils and this Forum.  

 

*Given an effort at the excellent tips on possible recovery, outlined above.

Dinosaur man has apologised and will amend an honest mistake. Please show some grace and let this go. We will all make mistakes and we must be able to own up to them without being called names. I’m afraid that language like this only makes it more likely that mistakes will go unmentioned in the future.

 

What matters is that this wonderful tradition continues, not whether our travelling friend is a Sara or a Simon.

PLEASE, let's not play the blame game. We are ADULTS here. Instead, how about looking for a solution. Those of you that have had the pleasure of visiting with Sara, maybe search the internet for a replacement just like her. Your knowledge of her size, shape, and texture can hopefully find a likely replacement, allowing this tribute for Doren to continue. Even though I have yet to have the privilege of meeting her, I have begun searching with my limited knowledge. 

 

@dinosaur man, mistakes happen. From my perspective, it could have happen to anyone, not just limited to you. You have my deepest sympathy. Not only was it tough to tell us about the loss. But then to have to endure the reaction by Forum Members. I for one am embarrassed by your treatment.

You're right Mike, let's do it.

I agree!! Maybe we should start a thread "Find a Sara Look Alike" with the approval of the Forum Moderators. I would put up a package of fossils to the person that can most mimic Sara. Give members until the end of April?? Any thoughts? @Tidgy's Dad, Adam, your opinion means a lot and would like to here from you .

Great, i also can help with fossils to help.

Don't worry @dinosaur man, we'll all find a solution and if, meanwhile, you find it back we would be even happier.

I think we need to table this discussion for a bit. 

 

I am locking this topic until we can find some way to continue on. 

In the meantime, lets please work something out via PM. 

 

Thank you.

@Tidgy's DadAdam, Sara has been found back, she's on her way to Ludwigia !

 

@dinosaur man, don't forget to post your photos with Sara, and maybe in stressing or worrying situations you'll remember what i said : in every situation in life, there is a way to find a positive outcome.

Oh my! Haven't they heard of bicycles in Morocco?...or at least camel post? I think that dinosaur man's parcels are on a slow boat to china right now.

The mail service are allowed small scooters in the medina, but nobody else is. All motor vehicles are prohibited and even camels are too big for our streets. Donkeys and horses are possible in about half of them. My rubbish is taken away every morning by a couple of donkeys. 

Dinosaur Man told me the postal service said up to two months! 

I suggested that he posted that info here just to keep everyone informed..............

I'd be quite surprised it would take that long. 

 

Usual transit time: 10 days (economy). Usual transit time: 5 - 7 business days (priority).
