I do understand and was excited when it first started (even though I was low on the list, I did sign up quite quickly) and very "pissy" when it disappeared ... Sorry to all for the crabbing. Not to make excuses but some of us have been patiently waiting a LONG time and suddenly, it seemed like my chance was gone, again. I am sorry.

As long as "longevity" is also put into consideration when looking at number of posts, I'm fine with whatever the group decides.

Shipping wasn't the worry, Elf, the worry was the person who took off with it and left.

I'll be putting up a list within this week.

Yep, shipping wasn't an issue. I sent it out FedEx and it was about $7 if I recall. I never even really looked at the money in the pocket, since I just just paid it's way (On to it's apparent final resting place ).

I'll have to sign up for the new one later. Spring and summer are getting here and it appears I am once again going to be busy, busy, busy...
