You're very welcome.

I will continue to do more reinforcement with some shadow swings while waiting for the next point to start. I'm usually good for most of 2 sets. Usually toward the end of the 2nd set or the beginning of the 3rd, as I start to fatigue mentally, the old teaching habit creeps into play and I am looking up too early again. It takes me a while to realize what is happening -- but I get the ship to right itself within the next half set.
If I ever play you, I'll remember to ask for tips on my forehand during the changeovers.
