Shopmom noticed that I have been longing for an Hermes whip.(for equestrian use, please note!) She has found me one in San Francisco. Not only that, she has offered to help arrange to get it sent to me. Is there nothing this gal cannot enable?! Where would we be without her, and others like her. What a forum! May I say a very public "Thank You!" to her,before I shuffle off to bed, very emotionally I might tell you. It's heading for 1.30 a.m. here in South Africa. Thank you everyone for making this such a great, friendly, supportive forum.
