What a fun story I had the chance to tell today! Since the video is posted, I'm not going to go through all the details, but I do just want to add a couple of quick points.
So, the woman, Christi, lost her diamond 4.5 years ago. Turns out, it was inside the printer by her old desk at the same company she still works for. The same printer she says they opened up to look in all those years ago! The same printer that the technician who eventually found the diamond, had checked 20-30 times BEFORE! Just really crazy!
What if they had replaced the printer sometime since August 2008? What if the tech would have seen this little black thing (it was covered in printer toner) and just thrown it away? What if, what if, what if! I'm so glad Christi was reunited with her stone, though.
I mentioned it quickly on tv, but I also wanted to explain in a little more detail what Christi plans to do with the diamond. She's going to stick with her new ring (bottom), and turn the old (top picture) diamond into a necklace. Then, she's planning to add a new stone to her old wedding band. Why? Well, she has three sons and she wants to give one of those pieces to each of them so they all have part of her wedding set. I love it!
Christi, Wayne (the man who found the diamond) and the others at their companies who I spoke with to help set this story up were all so nice. To think, I called Christi this morning and sprung this whole tv thing on her! Luckily, it all worked out and they did a great job telling the story!! We sent the story on to News Channel, so other stations around the country can play it (or part of it) if they want!
Yay, for happy stories.
Until next time,
