Fyn.K-Thank you so much!! Orange and black?!! No, I didn't know that. I've found them in gray or in buttercup yellow but never orange. The hunt is on to see if I can find one before Halloween. "-)

Uday-Thank you so much!! I'd uploaded one previously so put "unknown" until I could pull up the other one and copy the info. I'm a bit name challenged; sorry for the confusion! :-)
