After a couple of calls, (that took all morning and part of the afternoon) the problem is initially solved, once "My new baby's replacement arrives within 7-10 days. I had so looked forward to playing with "My new baby" and had many idea's on how she could be such a good partner to have in my "Homesteading endeavors" I wasn't pleased with the color of her dress, but figured "what the heck" I got a bargain! Have to give up something! If I have to wait a week, why shouldn't you!, I want somebody to be frustrated right along with me :o(.... At least I did have one thing go right today! It was time to take my Grav lox out of it's brine.
I had a slithering of cream cheese and Rye bread with it and a little onion...WOW! Delicious, I think it's the best one I've made yet!
Stay tuned and I'll let you know when "My new baby" arrives.
