Dear list members, particularly absentee bidders and sellers,
                Please excuse the delay in getting word, specimens and
checks out to everyone. .... We got home Tue afternoon and I ran
off to teach a class. The following day I spent unloading the rig,
doing paperwork, TRYING to read/scan/trash over 200 emails,
return phone messages, etc. It was, however, that evening that
really got busy. Angel, going out to get some remaining items from
the rig accidentally stepped out of the motor home door, falling
about 22 inches, badly spraining her left foot and ankle - and braking
her right foot (5h metatarsal - spiral break). We were not certain
she had broken it that evening, but it was clear the next morning, so,
we spent all of Thursday in the emergency room, then I ran off to class
that evening, coming back to pick her up...then back to teach another
class early Fri. morning.
        To make a very long story short, caring for my wife who cannot even
use crutches (NO pressure allowed on right foot and left foot far to sore to
walk on) has to be cared for 100%, not to mention birds, dogs, food, dishes,
dirty clothes, college classes, etc. etc. etc. Therefore, all post auction
duties are running about 2.5 days late. I hope to be fully caught up by
Monday, but I do know I am a hopeless optimist.
        Everyone's patience with the brief delay is appreciated. Anyone
sending healing, prayers, reiki, positive images, or whatever your personal
belief system supports will also be deeply appreciated.
        Best wishes, Michael
