PostSubject: Shock and Awe!   Sat Sep 29, 2012 7:59 pm

Okay... I haven't been bombed all in one day, but I've definitely been devastated over several days!!! This is truly a case of shock and awe! This week every time I've gone to the mailbox there has been one or two packages from BoB brothers and sisters! Today was no exception... I just got home from a twelve hour shift and there was yet another package waiting for me. One of our brothers sent me a brand new Savinelli Florence pipe and a tin of Cupojoes #1, which is an English style blend. I haven't opened the tin, but you can smell the tobacco through it and it smells wonderful!

I'll post pics as soon as I can get to town and buy a battery for my camera... it has gone completely dead.

Anyway, I just want to say thank you once again. YOU GUYS AND LADIES ARE AWESOME! Thank you SO much!

You guys have really set the standard of generosity and I'm going to do my very best to 'do onto others as you have done unto me'.

I really feel humbled by all of this. So often in life I have felt that no one cares about anyone but themselves... Now I know I was wrong! There have been so many wonderful people here that have gone way out of their way to bestow blessings on someone they hardly know. I'm just amazed... Very Happy

I've mostly been going through the Boswell and P&W blends that I bought a couple of weeks ago, out of those, I would have to say my favorites are probably Pennsylvania Dutch Treat and Vermont Maple Cavendish... both are very good aros... honorable mentions include Christmas Cookie and Gramercy Park... in fact, I haven't had one of their blends yet that I don't like.

Also have been smoking the Frogs a bit.

Now I have like 500 different blends of tobacco to try! I can't decide what to smoke next. I think I'm just going to go into my room blindfolded and start grabbing something. lol!

This is really an incredible predicament that y'all have placed me in. Laughing

The people here really are awesome brother, we are damn glad you are back with the family here. Definitely looking forward to seeing pics. Between the monthly bombings, the Shadow and Red Menace, and then random brotherly bombings this is the most generous group of people anyone could hope for.

Here's the pic of the Savinelli Florence pipe and Cupojoes Tobacco that I received... I also found out who this sender was. Very sneaky. Laughing

Thank you again. Very Happy

BTW, That is a really nice lightweight pipe. I haven't smoked it yet, but I'm looking forward to trying it out. Very Happy

Oooh ooh, let me know what you think about that blend in the pic with it. I posted a thread about those blends recently asking about them. I'd love to hear your impression Sir.
