Savinelli natural 316 at sunrise.

I thought it was appropriate for my birthday to start a pipe in it's "birthday suit". Aside from a couple of cobs and a p.o.s. basket pipe that I'm not counting, this is actually my first brand new pipe in just over a decade! I'm liking it so far. Let's see how it looks in another 42 years!

Some REALLY NICE grain on that one ! I think you'll find that one will work well! That's one BIG house you live in there Razz How many rooms? You must have enough to dedicate one for inside smoking Razz

Very Happy How many rooms? Well, let's see.... There's my Virginia room, the perique room, the VaPer room, the LatPer room, the English and Balkan rooms (I usually can't tell those two apart), a bunch of aromatic rooms...Of course, for flakes I use the rooms across the hall from these. They're a little smaller with higher ceilings. There's one room tiled in meershaum, but I rarely go in there in the winter for fear of breaking it. Razz Razz Razz
Actually, that's the original 1905 State Normal School building, now part of Western Michigan University. It sits atop Prospect Hill, overlooking the city of Kalamazoo. I live at the bottom of the hill. Most mornings you'll find me climbing the 151 steps up here to enjoy the view with my first pipe of the day.
And yes, I think this new Sav and I are gonna get along just fine!

Before taking this picture, I could only find ONE shot of myself with a pipe, and judging by the young lady at my side (i.e. not my ex-wife), the photo's at least 12 years old! I might post that shot later in the "hats" thread. Until then, it looks like I'll have to take some more autobiographical pics. Would you guys prefer tasteful semi-nudes or the full monty?

Count me in for the latter less tasteful ones. They tend to get and hold my attention better.
