Very enjoyable Steve, top notch. Perfect in every way.
This needs to be the title of an album, with this one as the last track on the CD, with a v..e..r..y long fade!

John,

Thanks so much! I hadn't thought about a slow fade out ending, but that does sound like a good idea. Very much appreciate your input!

Greg,

Thank you very much for your kind words! Glad you enjoyed it.

Malcolm,

Thanks for taking the time to listen and post your kind words!

Alyn,

Once again, thanks very much!

Superbron,

Thank you so much!

Steve
