HI Rebecca,

Please take all the time you need. There is no rush. This question will remain open until you return.

I do not do phone calls, because I can't do the research and speak with you at the same time. Also, there is an additional charge for a phone call, and I can answer your question right here.

So, please take your time, and get back to me when you have some pictures for me.
