**Forgive us our vagaries, but we want to give personal service to all our customers, so your online order, made at 11:30pm or 3:14am or even 1:02pm, will not be automatically fulfilled, but will be reviewed by us personally as soon as we can by the next business day and we may need to get in touch with additional questions to clarify and ensure you are getting exactly what you are looking for.  Thank you for your patience and continued patronage.
