Does anybody know if Mr. Lucas responds to all fulls? He's had mine for 10 months and I nudged about five months ago asking if he was still interested - he said he was. A couple days ago I nudged because I'd revised based on an R&R and got no response. Just wondering if I should close it out because his last response was incredibly prompt - within a few minutes.
