Well, unfortunately, the rest of the stuff won't arrive until Monday. So it won't be sent out 'til either black Friday, or the following Monday. I'd rather it sit here on my table, than under a 4"x6" box that weighs 80lbs at the post office. Anyone know if the post office is open black Friday?

We have plenty of time.

If Santa does make a pickup, don't forget to let us know. Not to whom, just that Santa has a package. Can you imagine everyone checking the bushes around the mailbox every night for the next few weeks? Laughing I suspect that it may be next weekend before Santa swings by my place to make a pickup. Or the week after. santa

Santa was in my neck of the woods today too. He said something about taking a package to some guy named "BoB" or something like that. Hmmmmm........sounds fishy to me. Question santa

I am told that Santa has started making pick ups! That means everyone needs to start watching their bushes next to the mailbox. Soon Santa will be making deliveries.

Yes, indeed! This is going to be fun! My "Sneaky Santa's Savory Samplings" are still being assembled. I'm one of those squirrely type characters that took out a bank loan and LOADED up on tubs of Edgeworth from JR's just before they went OOS for good. I've got quite a stash of those big 14 oz. tubs lined against the back wall of my "Cave of Wonders" walk-in cellar. So I'll be baging up some of that for my little buddy. Also waiting for my small allottment of a group buy of Tambolaka to arrive...should be here in another day or so. Then a sampling of THAT will go on the pile. And, luckily for my little buddy, I've gone through his past posts and discovered that our tastes in blends are very similar. So it will be easy to round out the booty with sampler type items. Then, maybe I'll add one of my shop crafted artisan pipe tampers (lol) for his amusement. So I'm pretty much set over on this end.

PS: Since I live at the North Pole (ahem) I always seem to be hooked up with guys from Antarctica for deals like this...and this year's festivites are no exception...so I'll be using a flat rate box from the USPS this year instead of firing up the sleigh for an early run...way cheaper than bribing the Reindeer with extra oats and eggnog!


Ho, Ho, Hooooooooooooo!

I have heard, that even though it's just a bit early, Santa has been delivering. Must be going to be a really busy package shipping season. santa

Hey Fellas,

As I was rounding the corner to our front gate I saw a box sticking out of the Mailbox. The signifigant other is always getting horsey packages. Horse this, horse that and I never get anything. But wait a minute, this ones got my name on it. It's from Santa. I know right away this isn't horse related. I drove to the house and self control didn't get the better of me and I opened right away. Santa brought me all kinds of goodies:

A tin of the Darklords Haddo's Delight
A tin of his Fillmore
A tin of McClelland's Beacon
A tin of McClellands St. James Woods
And A tin of Escudo
The only one of these I have smoked is Escudo.

But wait...Theres More:

Wrapped up inside is a Cape Lark Bulldog by Jan Zeman. Now this is my kind of pipe. This pipe is totally industructable and will be great for working in the shop. First Bulldog I have ever owned.
All I can say Santa is I'm overwhelmed and gratefull for all of the goodies and will certainly put all of them to good use.
You have outdone yourself. I'm gonna have a bowlfull in the Zeman after dinner. Thank you again.

Cool Santa! Never know when he's going to sneak by. The way the wind has been blowing, be sure to check those bushes around the mailboxes.

100g of OGS
50g of Dunbar
50g of Arcade
and 1 box of sulphur free matches

I want to thank the sender for a GREAT gift! I've been wanting to try the OGS for a very long time!!!

Dang you guys are really rolling them out already. I'm not even close to sending my box out. I think every year I barely make the deadline. Laughing

Have to let me know what you think of Dunbar, one I've often thought about buying but never did.

Great job, Santas! this particular Santa is cobbling together an extra special package... lots of late nights in the workshop. Those dang elves sure can be persnickety; they're threatening to unionize!

Just made my final purchase. I was getting frustrated because I knew what I wanted and they kept getting bought out from under me so I had to change my plan. Glad I did because I'm much more excited about this. Should have it in my hands within the week then off it all will go.

Santa better check again to make sure you've been a good boy all year...

Well...I know what I'll be doing...got it all planned out. But I won't (repeat) WON'T do anything re: Christmas til December. Not being a grinch...just think that since it's more than a month away I've still got enough time to wrap and mail my 'trove of incalculable wonders' if I wait.

Besides, still in prep and planning mode for our 30th Wedding Anniversary here in the 'ol horse barn. That's on December 6th. And heck...my birthday's between now and then! So, being a happenin' kinda guy...I got places to go, things to do and people to see!

Unto every thing there is a time...yadda, yadda, yadda. Little Billy won't suffer. I gare-own-TEE that much, Cher!

My gift package arrived the other day, I tried to be patient but since I see others are opening theirs I figured why not..? After all, wouldn't my Santa want to know it all arrived ok (I rationalized)...

Thank you so much! There are 5 fantastic tobaccos:

Westminster
Chelsea Morning
Barbary Coast
Charing Cross
Dunhill 965

And there is a very nice Charatan's Special, and given my propensity for dropping pipes from the kayak there is a fantastic Missouri Meerschaum corn cob pipe for outdoorsy stuff (which would also be tragic to drop from the kayak).

Thank you again, that was a great pile of loot! I didn't have many pipes to begin with, so adding TWO is a large increase!
