If you've been checking the original post you'll see that I have broken the $200 mark. Hurray! And I have ordered up one of these little beauties. I was going to have to drive (actually my husband was going to have to drive) all the way to Portland to procure one but I was fortunate to find a fellow in Sequim who will do the job for $200. I should have it in my yard sometime this Sunday. I am sooooo excited to be one step closer to bringing Laverne & Shirley home (and maybe Joanie, too).
UPDATE on my update: As of 6-17-10 this fellow has flaked out and we are now following plan B.
