Got a proper spanking today......
......no, not a physical one as in the "thank you sir may I have another"
sense. Just a right good spanking with respect to pipe weed!
One of our esteemed members saw that I was interested in a certain blend(s) from a certain blender, and took it upon himself to see that I had a proper introduction to them.
So today what arrived was 4 very generous baggies of blends from this tobacconist that I had shown interest in from some thread I posted in. This member did his homework, and all are right in my wheel house based on the reviews.
It wasn't a total surprise, as he had pm'd me about this. Yet he went above and beyond the original one blend I was most interested in and sent me 3 more!
If I know this poster as I believe I do, he doesn't seek the limelight nor does he do this for public display. He's simply a fellow piper that enjoys sharing. And that's what this hobby is all about. For all that, I'm very grateful my friend.
A big HAIL
to folks like him that keep this hobby alive.
