Hello ,

Thank you for the mail, i am buying this for my Dad ,i am a petroleum engineer currently on a rig offshore i really want this to be a surprise gift for my Dad so i wont let him know anything about this until it gets delivered to him , i am sure he will be more than happy with it.I can only pay with PayPal here, i will need you to give me your PayPal email address so i can make the payments asap and please if you don\'t have PayPal account yet, it is very easy to set up, go to and get it set up , after you have set it up i will only need the e-mail address you use for registration with PayPal so as to put the money through.....

Note well:
Pick up agent will come for the pick up as soon as i have made the payment,as a petroleum engineer I work mainly offshore, our phone is down on the rig right now due to bad weather, we can only communicate with our base for now. But if the deal is sealed, then i can look for a means to call you.
