-->> ***Regarding Auction to raise monies for the Hosta Library*** which I 
had launched yesterday; and in response to an email from your Library 
Treasurer, Barbara Jones <see pasted below> therefore, I have decided:
1.)-->> I am withdrawing as of this post!!!
2.)-->> The Auction I started yesterday is ***CANCELLED!!!*** so please do 
not use my Internet Addresses on this Topic (auction) again?

Please accept my sincere apology? ...for the Auction-misunderstandings & 
communication-turmoil, which I started ...AND AM ENDING FORTHWITH ...as of 
this last post!!

Thank U'all for your time, troubles & tribulations in this Auction matter; 
and particularly those, who were already involved in same with donations 
and/or bidding? ...I'm sorry, it went the way it did ...forgive me & goodbye
