I already have Affaire but, wanted another for a friend. She had
specified a limit price, and when that went over her budget, I stopped.
Your next bid over mine was the final, therefore, I personally paid the
extra amount & went home with Affaire for her.

And yes, I went home with that many. I have always supported my clubs,
and always will. Not only does it help them, but, it also give me irises
that I love.
