OH! Here's to hoping nothing comes up on the BBB end of things to cause the shipping to be delayed again! Now it looks like all of us who pre-ordered might just get them home in time for Christmas! Depending on how long our local mail takes to get them through. I always get nervous about estimating shipping times this time of year! You just never know when a branch along the shipping line that a package has to go through will be swamped with the start of their Christmas mail, even this early in the month!
