Santa dropped by for a smoke this morning Smile

A fine zippo lighter, pipecleaners and sweetner, some tasty cigars, a cutter and several packages of tobaccos that I have not yet tried Smile

Yes Virginia, there is a Santa - and he smokes a pipe.

I hope whoevers send the box that shows up last remembers the long standing tradition of buying the administrator of this mess a new pipe.. Hey I didn't make the rule, it was in place long before I started running this, honest, pinky swear, and all that.. ( disclosure: just in case anyone thinks I'm serious, I'm not).


Gandalf, does the zippo have a pipe insert? AND we gotta know what blends ya got.. Its in the rules, page 1182 paragraph 7, subsection C.

Egads - didn't mean to trash the rules...

blends:

1) Yes Virginia - Thomas Hinds Tobacconist - Canada
2) Sea Breeze - Abenaki Tobacco - New Hampshire
3) Club Blend - Pipes Ltd. - not sure of the location
4) W.O. Larson Signature Vintage Mixture
5) McClelland 2015
6) unknown blend - but I have hopes of playing "name that blend" and figuring it out Smile

Cigars are Quorum Little Q - Nicaragua

Zippo is a nice brushed silver, classic flip variety - as reliable as the daily mail Smile

Despite rumors of my naughtiness, Santa apparently thought otherwise! I opened a tremendous parcel to find my favorites represented:

Solani ABF
Reiner LGF
SHPC Great Hiatus and VR
McC Beacon
DH Nightcap (Santa must have a connection)
A few bunches of pipe cleaners
A card of good cheer from the jolly old elf hisself
And 45 Swans a-swimming: a box of Swan Vestas, the Cadillac of matches.

I'm touched by the generosity of the Brotherhood as usual--both giving and considerate. Santa read me like a book.

Thanks, Santa!

I kinda figured it was something like that...
But I admit I was a bit worried about your whereabouts, mostly because of your job and I've grown accustomed to seeing you on everyday.

I think the board secret santa is one of my favorite things I do every year... Really is fun. Thanks again PB for setting it up.

Holy Cow!!! Today has been one of those God awful days where everything goes wrong. Had to be out shopping - unbelievable crowds of rude and obnoxious people - pouring down rain mixed with sleet and snow. Finally got to go home and there to my great pleasure was a box from Santa himself. Since I'm a great believer in delayed gratification (and I had about a gabillion things to do) I waited until just a few minutes ago to open it.
First thing I noticed was a wonderful spicy aroma that made my mouth water (as a matter of fact it still is watering). I knew it couldn't be the Styrofoam pnuts (more shielding for the unlicensed nuclear reactor in the basement) so I fished around and pulled out a plastic ziplock bag with a HUGE sampling of McClelland #2015. I'm talking HUGE!!!
Then there was a 100g tin of McClelland's Christmas Cheer (something I've wanted to try) and a 50g tin of Dunhill NightCap (never thought I'd get to try this).
Santa included a bag of organic coffee from Maine - his note said that "a good pipe is nothing without a proper pairing of a great cup of joe." A sentiment with which I am in absolute agreement!
And last of all a beautiful Peterson 80S Smooth Shannon!!! Ever since some of the brothers have been posting about this shape Pete and how much they love it I've been trying to figure out how to fit one into the budget. It's like Santa can read your mind! When you think of it that's kinda scary!!!
Also in the package was a very nice card and a very thoughtful letter.
Thank you SS. You have made my day - and probably my month!!!

Good deal...

Once again my job is done. Thank you fellows for participating, this really is nothing without you guys.
Dover, I hope you are as happy with your package as everyone else seemed to be with theirs, your Santa is a great guy and I suspect he went big...

You guys have a Merry Christmas and a Wonderful New Year..

Glad you stuff made it to you Centurian. Sounds like about the best end to a bad day possible.

Well, I made it home and opened my santa B.O.B. SS 2009 santa box and much to my surprise, NO COAL!!!!!
My Washington State Santa sent me the following (pictured below also):

2 50g tins of PCCA Beacon (My all time FAVORITE VaPer!!!!)
2 100g tins of McClelland Christmas Cheer (2005 & 2007)
1 50g tin of McClelland's Blending Perique (To blend into the Christmas Cheer!!! mmmmmm)

A large bag of HIGH GRADE Lapsang Souchong loose tea leaves & a Yixing teapot to brew it in.
A copy of the "Pipe Book" by Alfred Dunhill (NICE!)
A bag of Danmore Fluffy Pipe Cleaners

and last but not least!
A ridiculously nice pipe by B.O.B.'s own MIKE BRISSETT!!!! (SANTA YOU DA MAN!!!!!! WOO HOO!!!!!)

Without getting mushy and all that, I genuinely say I was touched by the generosity of my Santa.
I owe you one St. Nick!!!!! It was a pleasure to be a part of such a wonderful event and I hope to be in it for many years to come.

A special round of applause goes out to Puros_Bran for organizing this event. CHEERS TO YOU, SIR!!!
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to all of my new found "Brothers of Briar" -----Sean N. aka DoverPipes
