    It's always a pleasure to give something to someone that does not expect something No repayment, just something I wanted to do. Larry thought that this box was for the box swap and the puzzlement in his face when it was on the table front and center, priceless That was fun for me. Thanks for everything Larry

    Great story to share and a great looking box as well. Good stuff all around.
