Maybe a blood transfusion will be helpful??? I already have too many on my want list from Keppel. And then there are the Sutton's Intros, and I haven't even looked at Ghio's. Somebody throw me a life line. I think I am downing in my standards and sinking into my falls. Is there any hope for the likes of me??? Crying Sighing! Maybe some group counseling would help. Crossing Fingers!


Tom, I can grab you (kidnap) and take you to a secret hiding spot for a while till the urge passes.

I think the group counseling from this group of enablers iris lovers is probably not the solution for reducing your holdings of irises, unless they suggest that you divest yourself of all your current iris holdings before acquiring any new ones. Of course, there are several new members that could help you out with this project. Whistling nodding
