Hello BoB,

Its been awhile since I've posted anything. My last event on the site was selling my pipes and tobacco so that I can help our financial situation. I even have to turn off Internet for the past few months and spent a couple minutes a day at the library internet looking for work.I'm happy to say that things look like they're turning around. my spouse and I are making reasonable income and the threat of eviction no longer is an issue.

I want to thank everyone on the site who helped us by purchasing my tobacco and pipes. It was extremely hard for me. Though I kept my most treasured pipes I still had to give up many of my favorites.I also sold half of my tobacco which I was saving and probably hurt the most.

Several of the members here have been very kind enough send over some of your aromatic blends. I cannot express my gratitude for brothers of briar enough except to say I'm very proud to be part this community.

I have learned how to make do with the few pipes that i have and plan on getting one more pipe to replace the shape i miss most (vauen g019) and even get my bilbo pipe if it were ever available again and as soon as i save the $$. My rotation has also added more aromatic blends, so the tobacco i have is still up for sale or willing to trade.

Thats all i can say for now. Looking forward to more.

Sounds like rough waters bb. Good to know things are starting to rebound.

Hate to hear about brothers going through tough times. Facing eviction must be awful beyond words.

Hang in there, and post updates when you can. Best wishes in your situation.


Cheers,

RR

Thank you all and I HOPE the tobacco you bought from me was immaculate lol

It feels like a 1 step fwd 2 steps back scenario since getting myself back will require more $$ than when I got in. Sad

If anyone knows anyone who happens to be selling the two pipes I'm looking for, please send them to me.

Hang in there BoB. I've been next door to homeless myself and it is a scary situation. The presure is immense. This group appears to be be extremely supportive. I just joined and am blown away by the talent and knowledge that is shared by the members. Society is best known by its treatment of its fellow citizens. We may as a country, be in trouble but the true concern shown by the brothers makes me feel like there is really hope out there.
My point is...hang in there. You have the right attitude to survive and come out stronger..look at the folks behind you right here!

Rough times happen, sometimes more or less to more or less folks. Don't I know it.

Glad things are looking up, always like seeing the "skies are clearing" posts to offset the impending storm posts.

I'm pretty sure BoB will try and get a few pipes back your direction, some way, some how. Smile
