It just wasn't going to happen until the company emerges from bankruptcy protection. And even then, I couldn't get credit insurance, so it just did not give me a whole lot of, um, uh, comfort. So at some point, uh, the buyer got in touch with me, heard that I was the one holding up the orders because of we wanted to get paid prior to the shipments going out. And, uh, so she called and said, we will remember you, Michelle Davey. And, uh, you know, and it's, uh, it was a little nerve wracking.
