I am truly sorry. You are NOT getting ripped off, I had a family disaster blow up about a week ago. I will spare you the details, but suffice it to say that I was majorly circling the drain for several days and let EVERYTHING including shipping items slide. I avoided all forms of communication for about a week trying to get my head on straight. Sorry to put you through this stress. I have removed my head from my tail and am joining the living again today. I will send you pics and tracking info this afternoon, and I am packing in a token of my appreciation for your understanding. Truly sorry. Not welching, I just let lady problems get my super sideways.
Very well. I understand where you're coming from. Lady problems can be a bear. I hope you can understand my concern as well. It appears there are several folks trying to get in touch with you on ARF. Please ship by express or priority mail at your earliest convenience and update with a tracker. I'm going to copy this message to the thread on ARF so everybody knows you're still alive. Sorry for all the messages but I'm sure you would do the same in my shoes. Thanks!
