sorry, had a funeral to attend and some other things come up this week, so haven't had much of a chance to post this week . . . and now I just did my nails so have to be careful typing . . .
seller got back to me and apologized for the delay. i decided to take a chance and did the $40 transaction via paypal only - we've been chatting a lot and seem to have become friends, I even chatted with her DH. the keychain should be here Monday, but we both decided for all future transactions to use ebay as it will help both of our feedback, she is going to figure out how to try to keep the price low enough that we both benefit.
thanks for the replies and the interest and sorry for the bad typing due to wet nails!!
