PostSubject: What's up from Virginia!   Sat Oct 24, 2015 1:53 pm

Hey, guys!

My name's Anthony. I'm a former cigarette smoker who traded in his sticks for mallets about a year and half ago and never looked back. Almost no tobacco leaf is safe from my bowl. English or aro. Shag or rope. OTC or boutique blend. Any of it is fair game depending upon the time of day and my mood.

I also started repairing and restoring pipes a little over a year ago. I love the challenge of returning a pipe that would otherwise be destined for the trash bin to something of it's former beauty. I'm really not happier than I am with a dirty, broken pipe in my hands.

I've met a few of you guys elsewhere around the interwebs and I'm looking forward to getting to know those of you that I haven't.

Cheers!

Thanks again for the warm welcome, gents. Nice place you have here. I've driven by it often. I'm glad I finally decided to stop in and look around. Kind of swamped with work at the moment. So, I can't yack as much as I'd like to. Be forewarned though. As soon as I get that under control, you're going to have a hard time getting me to shut up. silent

Yeah. I did time with allyby and Cartaphilus on Rikers back in the 90s. Saw ally shiv another inmate for trying to touch his pipe once. I'm honestly surprised that they let Cart out. Wait,.. they did let you out didn't they, Cart?

Hey, juan! Sorry for the late reply. I'm down south. So, close to the border that if I get up on the wrong side of the bed I have to pay Virginia and North Carolina taxes for the rest of the day.

So, should we divide it lengthwise, or do we have to fight for ownership of the whole thing? Wink

With traffic up here it doesn't make sense for me to claim much below Fredericksburg! My sister lives in Richmond so if you'll allow me free passage there you can have most of it!

Hope it ain't so hard for you to get around down there. It's getting bad up here. And expensive. The wife wants to leave the area at some point. I was born here so I'm a bit hesitant but I have to admit it's not the same place anymore.
