  4. Well it arrived on Thursday 6th April 2 days past 3 months from the date of purchase The Canadian Post website said 2 - 3 months so boy have they taken the full use of the time frame Anyway, the main thing is the book arrived with minimal damage (one corner slightly scuffed) Given it's come such a long way I am grateful for its safe arrival
  5. My order is in too And I added a Dodge one seeing the garage is full of the older ones So Dodge on the road IH in the paddock
  6. Still no sign of the book so I have gone back to the seller's to see if they can chase the Canadian Post for more shipping information Time will tell!

  11. Oh how many times have I heard that "We'll keep it till we find it a new home" or "DAD, can we just look after it till its better" Next thing you now it's smooching your legs first off in the morning and you're feeding it and the children have left home Ask me how I know x 15 or so times one way or another.
  12. I agree with those above who say "ring the doorbell" or visit them in person - nothing conveys sincerity more than standing in front of a person and being honest. Brett
  13. I went online and bought a copy through the Canadian site so will wait patiently and see how long it takes to make it to NZ. I've got the Aussie and British books and their content is interesting and invaluable I have bought some items off plough booksales 're an Aussie A554 and their response was good. Regards Brett
