I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here.

I don't do photos. I'm an 84-year -old man living in a retirement community, and barely computer literate. I asked about the item because a neighbor brought over the item in question and wondered if i had any idea what it it. I am not interested in "membership" in Just Ask or pursuing the query further. Just take the $5, send me your best guess and then lets drop the whole thing. OK??
