Okay, here's the deal. Miz Anne and I have a fairly extensive seashell
collection numbering in the thousands. Some are fairly rare, some are
common, some are never seen in the US because they come from a restricted
area of the Middle East.  Ship me a ton of your non-descript grey rocks and
I will ship you 10 lbs of rare seashells. <BSEG> Sound fair? If so, would
you like to buy a bridge with a railing on both sides that depicts paired
flintlock pistols?
