Subject: [CR]Slow shipment from Europe arrives

After giving up a shipment of goodies from Baron for lost, a box from the Netherlands showed up Friday. Everything was intact and as ordered back at the beginning of December. Interestingly, it came in with another box that held an NOS '73 Brooks Pro that I purchased on January 20th, also shipped from the Netherlands. Baron did indeed ship my order in early December, so there must have been a major delay in shipping, or maybe it took awhile to fill a container for the boat ride over. Neither box appeared to have been opened en route. All the stuff from Baron was of excellent quality and at least as nice as I expected.

So, if you are waiting for something from Europe, be patient. Your day will come soon (saw this is a Chinese fortune cookie today).
