First...on a personal note...I am kinda irked. Looks like the furlough is being extended another 30 days. I think it is just time to look for a new line of work.
The Cougar line is closed. I just got the last few from the caster and it seems some of the molds are starting to die. I hope you bought them when you could, 'cause they are no more.
I have not heard from the caster since sending the Daishi...but that is not out of the ordinary. Their casts are great...communication, not so much. I will probably e-mail next week to see how things are going.
