PostSubject: A Very Generous Stranger!   Mon Feb 10, 2014 3:47 pm

When I went to the post office today I had three packages. I thought that was a little odd as I had only been expecting one. Went to the counter to collect the packages. I discovered that one was something my wife had ordered, another was a batch of Morta I had been expecting, but I had no clue what the third one was. I took it back home and inspected the package for any sort of sign from where it came. There was no return address, only the words "From some old farmer in Alaska, PS I still need to commission a pipe!"

I was shocked when I opened the package.
Included therein:
-8oz H&H Daybreak
-8oz H&H Ambassador's blend
-8oz H&H Larry's Blend
-8oz H&H LJ Heart Virginia
-8oz Esoterica Margate (I thought this stuff was as scarce as hen's teeth!)

This is almost the single largest individual bomb I've ever received, so to whomever this generous individual is: THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!! I do not know why I was targeted for such generosity, but it sure does make my day. I can only hope I follow the example this individual gave and give back to the community in like measure.

THANK YOU!

Whoa... That is a serious bomb.

Obviously the person is familiar with your work, but still...

Was that prepayment for a commission? Very Happy

An excellent bomb for a very deserving individual.

Wow! Nice BOMB!
I can only think of one very generous individual in Alaska that comes to my mind right now but,
I probably shouldn't even mention it.....

Yeah. Same.

Plus he looks and sometimes dresses like St. Nick, and he always seemed to have a endless supply of Esoterica.

It doesn't say farmer Smile
I just received a very similar package of greatness and am blown away by the generosity. I will post a pic later when I get the chance.
