    I know exactly how you feel, and hopefully others will learn from this by you coming forward. I was taken, 'hook line and sinker' by a scam when I sold a $400 camera lens. I absolutely knew better, but was taken by the friendliness of the person I was selling to, and the fact that they did a great job faking a couple of paypal emails. I absolutley knew better when I shipped the lens, to all places - Nigeria! Yes, stupid, stupid, stupid ... If my kids had done that I would have slapped them on the side of the head (well, not really, but I would have made them feel bad :) It's a shame that we have to be suspicous of everything these days ... but that's reality - too many people trying to take advantage of trusting people - and the down economy is just making things worse.

    Well it is summer, here in VA we've been in a drought, not sure about Michigan but
    in my area most of my yards won't need it for at least a month.

    You've waited two whole weeks, big deal.

    Granted I usually call around to let my customers know.

    But have they come out at all?
