Well, I must apologize - I thought surely you were scamming me. But, all of a sudden, my mailbox overflows. I received one order on Thursday, 8 June, and then another on Saturday, 10 June. Almost 1 month from our first effort, but the postal service must be the culprits. With this double supply, you are now going to have to send me a couple of women, so the meds don't go to waste. How can we make this right? What would you like me to do? Thanks. I hope only good karma comes to you. - Curt
