hi yes this is a different type of loss.soon after divoce i removed a neclace and I stupidly, passionately, but carefully placed it up inside the flue of the fireplace of the top floor southern front room of the guest house. i know antige chimneys and they have a flot area up inside...there is a good chance the necklace is still there. Please let me look for it when the room is serviced.
After reading this account, our executive housekeeper, Megan Campbell, went to the room he described, and carefully searched where he indicated, and behold, there was the necklace after several years time, hidden away inside an abandoned chimney. We arranged for him to get his necklace back, and life is good.
I love happy endings, and am so glad this one turned out that way.
