I need to again thank my benefactor for this '05 Stonehaven...whoever you are you are a magnificent human being. Had my 3rd bowl of the stuff this morning and it is fantastic.

Lord, what is this glorious creature called "Stonehaven from 2005" that thou hath wrought? Why dost thou tempt me so with it's glorious sweetness only to deny me it's presence on my favorite websites? Verily, 'tis a blessing and a curse entwined.

I am ruined.

I'm very nearly ready to send out as well. I've finished my blacksmithing project (recipients should scan for a box marked: "Acme Anvils") and I'm now making the final 'theme guided' tobacco selections. I've gone back through my target's history of posts quite a ways to learn a little more about him and tried to tailor the items for the man. Thus far all I lack is the C4 and fuses. I think they were on sale down at Walmart the last time I went over there.

Well the C4 should at least ensure a relatively even and thorough burn with whatever tobacco you use it to light.

I'm not sure that is really a good solution for difficult to light tobaccos though. I have a feeling there may be some unforseen consequences.

The fat cargo jet lumbered down the runway straining to be free of the tarmac. Ed, the aging Ground Crew Chief watched from just inside the hanger doorway, quietly proud of the fact that the 'brick' he was in charge of held the reputation for the highest load rating in the fleet. His pride, however, was rapidly being replaced with a growing concern as his brick approached and then passed the point at which it should have been airborn. He started to stumble forward out of the hanger door, mouth agape, eyes wide with fear. My God, he thought, she's not gonna make it! She's...she's...

Just at that moment the engines roared with a scream of added power and the plane just barely cleared the ground, going into a slight yaw to starboard...then corrected and began a turgid climb clearing the windsock at the end of the field my mere inches...continuing on it's way toward the sun rising behind Mt. Hood to the East.

Wiping his hand across his forehead he let out a huge sigh of relief...followed by a growing rumble, then a shouted curse...

"They wouldn't do it again!" he bellowed, "Not to MY PLANE!"

He staggered over to the cargo manifest desk and began tearing through the paperwork that had been sitting there, finally finding what he needed...the flightlist and manifest for today...and there it was, right there in black and white.

"It WAS that damn Balckhorse!", he whispered in dispair, "Another one of those BoB Exchanges! I TOLD them not to take any more boxes of his! I TOLD THEM NOT TO!"



And so, the Ken Collins Appreciation Box wends its way toward its target...be afraid. Be very afraid!

The Ken Collins Appreciation Society dropped a load on me today. WOW! Awstruck! For commies, we are sure a generous sort.

A box of 25 Peterson Gran Reserva Churchill's. An outstanding Dewar's 12 all metal cigar cutter. A handmade set of tools, which looks like a probe for loosing an overpacked bowl, possibly also used for helping to make a tight wrapped cigar breath. A really nice pipe nail formed into a tamper and a knife with a pretty decent edge for it's size. The tools stow inside of a polished copper tube with caps on each end. Not sure my picture do it justice.

A hand carved pipe. The carving looks to tell the story of Lord of the Rings. From when Deagol finds the ring of power while fishing, to Shelob's lair. Very creative.

Tins, 14oz of Edgeworth Ready Rubbed, JackKnife Plug, older The Banker's in a black label, and perhaps MacBaren's finest blend, Stockton. Bags of Tambolaka, nearly 10 yo Dunhill 965, D&R St. James Rimboche, John Patton's Stormfront, & Pipes & Cigar's Virginia Spice.


Oh, let's not forget a sleeve of Dutch chocolates shaped to look like betting chips with dice.

Enough here to keep me busy for quite some time. WOW! Thank you Comrade!!!

I have a fair idea of who sent that shipment that crashed into you, and he's one of the greats at knowing how to gift. Good show, sir.

Got the box off today to my Comrade. I feel like such a cheap, proletariat, capitalist scum; sending gifts to a brother that I'm sure only works for the good of his commune. (But then, sometimes being cheap scum isn't all bad?!?)

Forklift left a crate today. Wow what a selection. Tins: Pete's Irish Flake, Mr. Pease's Hadoo's (old style tin) and JKP, McClelland Christmas Cheer 2003(wow), and 2000 Larsen Old Belt. A great looking carved Sevket meer and a large one at that, nicely colored and ready for years of use. Tons of samples too many to name, and a couple fists of sticks, one of which will see it's demize tonight while at a cookout. Will post pics latter as I am running short on time.

Hey fellas, sorry for not posting sooner. The box shall leave for it's recipient very soon.

I'm a little squeezed for time at the moment, but I'll get a description of the goodies I received ASAP.

Cheers everyone and please forgive the fact I've been so quiet lately.

Oooooh! I very nice and weighty box has been hand delivered to my doorstep! Looks like the evil beast has landed. Running around right now doing prep for Easter, with relatives and others due...as I want to give this the attention it deserves I will wait to post results til Monday.

A happy and blessed Easter to all of you, my brothers.

My box arrived from New Mexico and what a box it was!



Seven tins of great tobacco including Dominican Glory Maduro from 1998! Four huge samples (one being almost a quarter pound, so the term "sample" might not be appropriate) including Cannon Plug, Happy Brown Bogey, Black Irish X, and Peretti Summerset Slice. And on top of all that a beautiful pipe, J. Goldman with very nice grain and birdseye accross the top.

Thanks, Jason, very generous of you. Guess it will be a Happy Brown Bogey kind of night? cheers
