NOTE: Please be aware that I have a small child. I am generally very prompt about answering questions and making contact with auction winners. However, she keeps me VERY busy, which may delay things a little bit. ) I am also out of town on business on the weekends, occasionally. If you write me and I don't respond right away, please have patience. :)
