Glad it arrived Rick.  Like John told me, keep it for a while and pass it on when the time is right.  Took me a while to get the feel for it.  The slide was an early one my mom made for me and I felt like I needed to send something else along. Keep it or pass it on as you'd like.  

All the best, 

Todd
