Kevin,

I'm wondering if Ray shipped after New Years, as allof the packages I'm waiting for were shipped after Christmas on 12/27 prior to New Years.

Some items were purchased prior to Christmas from Ray Etherton, and Ray asked if I minded he postponed shipment to after Christmas as he felt it would actually make for a more timely delivery than including it in the deluge of Holiday packages.  I happily agreed, and he was right, the package arrived quickly post-Christmas.

The weather, holiday season, and security checks all seem to be the reason why we are experiencing arrival delays.

Truly appreciate Ray's suggestion in delaying the shipment, as my purchases arrived safe-and-sound.

I just checked on an item purchased from a UK seller on 12/28/10 (small item able to ship in an envelope), and he immediately reported back that weather in the form of snow has been delaying delivery times to the USA.

Also purchased a saddle from a French seller on 12/10/10 that never arrived, so the seller refunded my purchase price, but I really was looking forward to receiving the saddle.  Who knows, it may show up, but not holding my breath.

WIth all the snow delays/shutdowns at NY/NJ airports, suspect that is playing a big part in the slow delivery also.

Would recommend checking directly with the seller first to check the shipment status.  Both sellers I contacted provided prompt and courteous replies.
