PostSubject: Secret Santa Mistake 2015   Fri Dec 11, 2015 9:59 am

Santa swung by my place yesterday and screwed up! He got me mixed up with somebody on the Nice side of his list and left me am impressive package.

5 Tins of Tobacco I have never tried and all appear to fit into my sweet spot.
Dan Tobacco - Old Ironsides
Sillems Commodore Flake
McClelland Three Oaks Syrian
Mac Baren Old HH Old Kentucky
Petersons Irish Flake

Sweets - Reeses Holiday PB Cups
Candy Canes
Dark Chocolate Expresso Beans

Italian Sausage Roll (Santa likes us Dagos)

AND an Impressive Missouri Meerschaum Macarthur Classic Cob (which I will inaugurate with one of the above blends as soon as I can find time for 'eenie, meenie, miney, mo')

All wrapped nicely and with a (made me giggle) creative Christmas Card!

Thanks Brother!

(ALERT! ALERT un PC) Merry Christmas to you and All BoB Brothers with special thanks to Carlos for managing this again this year!

Santa really laid the big one on me this year.

I just shoved things out of the way on the reloading bench to get a picture.

A pipe from Rick Black
Pipe shaped tamper tool
Couple of very funny cartoon books called "Tundra".
A coffee mug from Kobuk Coffee shop and a bag of speciality tea.
A carved birch tree ornament and a shallow bowl.
Three different kinds of sausage all containing some reindeer meat.
The Alaska Ulu knife
Couple tins each of Old Dark Fired and McClelland's Red and Black
That huge pile of bagged tobacco in the middle has a pound of Dunhill Nightcap, generous bags of Bob's Chocolate Flake, Bob's Square Cut Unscented, and #7 Broken Flake.
A nice Christmas card!

I am set for the winter! Thank you Santa!

Some of you guys live in such amazing places. I look around the flat ground where I live and wonder what interesting things can be found in Illinois that I could send to people. All we have is lots of corn and politicians that are crooks.

I have scanned all my messages and the entire thread.  Brought my spreadsheet up to date.  I need to hear from five of you players about shipping.  We are still within the comfortable shipping window, so I expect some of you will finish tomorrow.  A few others may still be waiting on etailers.  I know how that is! 

So keep checking those bushes next to the porch for packages.

Ho Ho ho!!!   santa rendeer rendeer rendeer rendeer rendeer rendeer rendeer rendeer rendeer

I couldn't get my phone to upload my pictures.  I finally got them emailed to me....so here you go.

From Santa:

I opened the box to find a stocking stuffed full of presents and a book of some sort all wrapped and waiting to be torn into.


The book turned out to be a one year subscription to Food and Wine Magazine!  I am very very excited!


An Ardor Christmas 2003 Straight Billiard with a handmade leather pipe bag.



3 tins of Dunhill Flake.  
A box of mini Moon Pies (my girls loved these  Very Happy  )
A package of Lil' Goos (I kept these for myself!)
An assortment of candy shaped glass ornaments.  These now reside on our tree and will be put out every year.


Thank you Santa!!!

Got mine today.  Great tobacco, (including one I've never tried, much less heard of), great chocolate and an interesting book on cities.  I'm teaching Urban and Regional Planning this spring, so this translation from Italian looks to be applicable to our world urban perspectives and land-use chapters.  Thanks GG, (not so secret Santa).

Looks like the Postal Service has let me down some Sad

Delayed package! Was supposed to be out for delivery on Saturday, instead got lost in a major metropolitan area. Updated tracking shows that it's made it to another metropolitan area, and will be delivered... sometime.

Fingers crossed it actually makes it, and in one piece.

I may need to send my Secret Santa package back. I'm afraid somebody accidently sent me the box they keep their entire cellar in. Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy

The box arrived Saturday but was hidden on the front porch until Sunday. I was shocked how heavy the box was when I picked it up. I actually felt a little sorry for the delivery elves' back muscles. I opened it up and was just wowed with the amount of tobacco inside and how much of it has a good amount of age on it.  Today I finally had time to go through and inventory it all. It looks like there is about 5.5lbs of tobacco here.

Thank you to my Secret Santa for a generous gift!!! Merry Christmas !!  santa  santa  santa  santa  santa  santa

WOOHOO Santa!! I keep a two wheel hand truck around just for when an order arrives from Smoking Pipes, or MARS, or Cup O' Joes. That would have been handy for that box.


(Mental note: Dang! I forgot to include pipe cleaners!)


Keep an eye out in them bushes next to the porch! We got winds here today that could blow ya' into next week.

What a great day to work from home. Santa made a visit.
Thanks so much Santa, you hit the nail on the head with these selections. I'm pleased as punch.

The elves made a stop in northeast Ohio this afternoon...pictures will follow later this evening, but suffice it to say that it was a doozy.

Santa - you really went to town this year, and I appreciate it a million times more than a forum post could express.
