He didn't bite, of course. But I've got him a little worried and/or irritated. I can't play this game much longer though, it gets tiresome. I've got till Wednesday or Thursday till Paypal releases the funds, so maybe I'll hold on till then at least. Playin' it by ear.

Are you kidding? Check cashing places take too much percentage. I'll mail you back the money order, that way you don't have to cancel it, and you can WU the money to me. You can afford the fees, I can't.

How about cancelling the money order and sending it by Western Union instead? I spent $7 on that trip to San Diego. I can't afford to go back and have the same thing happen.
I ate the rest of the mussels this afternoon, and I'm still alive. As predicted, the deep-water mollusks are apparently safe from whatever ills those in shallow water develop at times. But I was hungry today, and spent about $7 on food (4 tacos, 3 tamales, and a donut) besides the mussels. Luckily, I got a few customers late today (two are still here), but my outgo is still greater than my income for the 24-hour period. I've gotta watch that.
