Hi Catsamoa79! Thanks for the info. The timelines for some agents do show lengthy response times. Sigh. Waiting is tortuous. Nice to have someone I know here with me in the query trenches! March on!

HI AuthorTeacherkl! Yeah, I queried her in March with no response yet, but her slowest response time was 176 days! There's still hope! Good to see you on here!
