Well, well, well.
Naomi (who is dead) stole a set of sheets from Gladys.
Fanny is missing a $25 ice-cream scoop (seriously, like any one of these depression-era residents would spend that kind of money on anything? Not believing it.) She is also missing a nutcracker.*
Joseph reported someone took all the money from his wallet.
And Pearl is missing a skirt, that she knows was in her apartment just an hour before it "went missing." Someone who works here probably took it because it was really expensive and would make a nice gift. Keep in mind that Pearl had several things stolen from her last week, too, including her dead husband's masonic apron. ???
I wonder if it's a coincidence that Gladys, Joseph, and Fanny have been sitting in the lobby with Pearl in the afternoons? I also wonder how many missing item reports in one week would constitute a new record? We just may be on track for that one.
UPDATE: Fanny just came back to tell me she is also missing her hammer. Um, why would....oh nevermind. Nothing here makes much sense this week!
*The word "nutcracker" always makes me snicker. I found it especially amusing when said by a 90-year-old woman. I'm so mature.
