Hi Ladies, it has been a while since I have been able to post. I have been away on vacation...BUT not before I placed a bid on a Grey / Gray (depending on how you like the word spelled) 2005 Reissue, size 226. I placed my bid and left town...just hoping that when I returned I had placed a high enough bid to get the bag. And yes, I check with the tpf experts to make sure I was not being scammed...so with a positive review from the tpf expert (thanks Michele) and my max bid in place - I left town. Upon returning home - I was the highest bidder but the bids were competitive. The reissue arrived and I love it, well worth the money. Very nice condition - now, I so understand the hype on the 05 gray reissue - it is beautiful! Looks like I have a lot of reading to catch up on...you ladies have been busy chatting away.
