HEARTBROKEN OVER MY LOST NECKLACE
Have you ever lost something special and after searching and searching, it’s no where to be found? That’s what happened to me a few weeks ago and I was heartbroken over my lost necklace that I thought was lost forever.
Saturday morning reunion plans were a tour of our high school and Saturday evening was a wonderful dinner at the Edison Club, the same place we had our Junior Prom back in 1966. When we got back to the hotel Friday evening, I took my necklace off and wanted to put someplace where I wouldn’t forget to wear to dinner Saturday evening. I thought I put it on the desk and didn’t think about it until we were getting ready to leave for dinner. My necklace wasn’t on the desk so I checked on the floor thinking maybe it fell off the desk. Hubby and I looked everywhere, all the drawers, the bathroom, the floor and even the trash can under the desk. Now my mine was totally blank as to where I put it, maybe I didn’t even put it on the desk. So we opened all our luggage, the toiletry bag and my tote bag. I was excited when I found the little gold box I keep the necklace in when I’m not wearing it in the suitcase…..but it was empty!
By now it was time to head to dinner so we headed out to the car. Once there I scoured the glove box just in case I had brain fade and I removed it before we got back to the hotel room. Nope, not there, my beautiful necklace from my sweetie was gone forever.
The reunion was great, the hotel stay was fabulous but we left knowing I would never see my necklace again. We got back home to South Carolina on Monday and I decided to call the hotel front desk just to see if by chance someone found it. Nothing had been turned in but the young woman took my phone number in case it showed up. As I was preparing dinner on Tuesday evening, the phone rang at as soon as I saw the caller ID, “Landing Hotel”, my heart raced wondering if they were calling to let me know they didn’t find it….or did they find it. The young woman I spoke with previously said housekeeping found it in the room but didn’t know where! I was SO EXCITED that my necklace had been found and returned to the hotel office. I asked if I sent a returned addressed envelope could they send it to me but she told me they don’t send valuables, but they would keep it until we went back for a visit. After I told her we were 1000 miles away, and that it really wasn’t valuable to anyone except me, she agreed to me sending it up. The very next day we went to the Post Office, I got a small padded envelope, had the PO put Priority postage on it and I stuck it in another envelope to send to the Landing Hotel.
So whoever it was at the Landing Hotel that found my necklace in room 323, THANK YOU SO MUCH! For Nina at the front desk, THANK YOU for keeping my necklace secured in the safe until it was mailed to me. Not only is the Landing Hotel a magnificent place to stay but their staff is top-notch also.
If any of my readers are planning a trip to upstate New York, you need to check out the Landing Hotel with beautiful views of the Mohawk River from the rooms. Everything is over the top and I can’t wait until we make our next trip to Schenectady, The Landing Hotel will be our home away from home every time we visit. When we returned home, I wrote a review of the MAGNIFICENT LANDING HOTEL, check out how beautiful the rooms are, the amenities and the food!2 people have liked this post!
