Good luck and next time, don't drop the glass - it does cause a lot of heartbreak when it happens. ***** Posted by Rick Crockett on February 08, 2000 at 01:58:26:

Hi Doug:

Sorry to hear about the accident. *****

FWIW - I can't take credit for the breakage. We have Airborne Express to thank for that. The mirror arrived at my home smashed to pieces. Want to know the best part? AE is refusing to pay up on the shipping insurance. Looks like the mirror maker is going to have to sue them. The not so subtle message here is BEWARE OF SHIPPING WITH AIRBORNE EXPRESS!
