Is it too late to share Secret Santa stuff?

I hope not.  

Scotties pulled my name some time ago, but due to life doing what life does best, she labored :snerk: to get something out to me eventually.  I tried to tell her I owed BoB an the group more than she realized overall, and to simply skip sending me anything if she needed to.   I have enough pipes, really.  Besides the random cheap basket pipe or a cob, I have smoking performance enviable by anyone in a skimpy financial situation.

No, she wouldn't have any of that.   Being a talented pipemaker herself, and generous as all getup, no amount of my ignoring the situation or talking it down worked.

And here it is, a gorgeous blast poker with angled just-right-capacity bowl, and sterling band.  Light as a feather, wonderful grain and complete with a custom pipe bag:



I've pretty much given up on insisting you all stop sending me stuff.  Laughing  Save it for another brother or sister.   Send it to Scotties, en masse, for example.  Very Happy

Scotties, thank you Sister, this is more than I expected by a long shot.   I love you You made my day (and my Christmas)! santa 

Cool

That women has no taste -- in men anyway.

Here I sit like a well aged cheese without such a kind thought.

Do you think the well aged cheese people mention about me as being Limburger has any thing to do with it?

Laughing  I was hoping you'd find your way in here, Carlos.   Yep, it worked out.  I had no doubt...seriously, I tried my best to evade, avoid and pretend like nothing was happening.  Scotties, on the other hand, has a heck of a memory.   Laughing  My last resort was going to be, "...but you already sent me something," but I wasn't about to screw with a woman-with-child.  Bad idea.  pale   tongue

For the rest of you, thank you for admiring the new beauty.  I ran some Semois through it, but that leaf is a bit tricky, especially in a new pipe.  Truthfully, I got the BEST flavor out of the Semois through it, but the lack of cake caused a little heat, and I was worried about singeing the uncoated bowl (and thank GOODNESS she's not a "bowl coating" kind of carver!!!).  cheers

The briar's tasty.  Probably going to run a bunch of Union Square through it for the next month until it starts settling in to its new life.   I love you 

Cool

(PS--Lady Luck has never been on my side, the irony of living in a gambling town [or, that totally makes sense].  No powerball, lotto or MegaBucks for me--I'll take Lady Pipe Maker any day.  I love you )
