Was in a closet in a back bedroom and found a shoe box on the top shelf. Pulled it down to see what shoes were in it and WOW ! wasn't shoes but 10 pipes and three un-opened tins of 'baccy.!! The three tins were 50g Royal Yacht I'd bought back in 2000! And the pipes were 5 Charatan Specials, 1 Mountbatten Tanshell and 4 Edward's ! All bought in the '70s and put on the shelf when I moved into the house back in 2000 !! Gonna open one of those 17 yo tins tonight after dinner and load up one of my Charatan Specials, a big 4148DC pot! Should put a smile on my face for sure !! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

I checked my closets. Found a pair of spiked golf shoes and a sweater that seems to have shrunk quite a bit. Congratulations!

Seems to me you also had another surprise quite like this a few years ago Michael.

So do you also hide cash in books or clothing?

How does one just happen to forget about owning half a dozen Charatans?

PD, you're 53, right?? Give yourself about 15 more years and you'll figure out how do it, lose a few pipes among other things!! Not to mention tins of tobacco!! It comes naturally!! Razz Razz cheers FTRPLT
