Contessa Regina, I would be delighted to help you in any way I can, but I 
have not seen the Rose Tourney info yet, so I do not know if it will 
conflict with my trip back east to pick up my remaining few boxes and 
furniture.  I do not have a firm time commitment so I am thinking we should 
be able to work something out.  Let me check the event info and make sure I 
am not double-booking myself.  If you do not hear from me in a few days, 
pleae remind me because I am so easily distracted right now with all the 
newness of everything, LOL.  rua
