|What was lost, is now found.|
Do you know how much Irish dance shoes cost? No, not the fairy-like soft leather shoes that lace up over white socks (did you know that these socks are actually glued in place, “sock glue”?). They cost a pittance as compared to the “hard shoe”.
The hard shoe is the stuff of “River Dance” shaking the stage, and costing upwards of $350.
So imagine my daughter’s distress when one shoe when missing after a big Irish Dance Competition (called a “Feίs”, Fesh) at the Sheraton Hotel in Anaheim, California. They had called the hotel, who said nothing had turned up. Many sobs were heard that day.
My husband had a conference the following weekend in Anaheim at an exquisite hotel next to the Sheraton. Not one to miss some taste of elegance I went with him. And I popped over to the Sheraton.
Adventures happened, but through the determination of Sheraton’s staff, a house keeper named Maria Luisa recalled finding a shoe last week (huge hotel, hundreds of rooms).
Many thanks go to: Front Desk clerk Anthone, Banquet hall manager Javier, House keeper Maria Luiza, and Lost & Found desk Christine. When she set the box in front of me and pulled out the lone shoe, it was a miracle.
