I hope you know I was just wooing you regarding the shape name. But let check my stash later... I think I have a tin with that name on it. If so, I might know a little more.

Are there any stampings on the pipe? It looks like an estate...might just be the photo though. And yet the sock is brand new. I'm thinking they might not be a match.

You might check on 'Pipedia' for the anchor stamp.

Hmmm.

Moazjo...Is it possible that the name you can't make out very well is, "Svendborg"?

See if you can count the letters on the pipe, or make out any part of it.

Ho Ho Ho! santa Ok ladies and gents, by my count, there is four BoB's yet to receive their package. Everyone else has received something. Of those four, one is scheduled for tomorrow delivery. Odd that. Another, arrangements have been made, and I could call that one delivered. Another tracks in an odd way, like it should have been delivered. Or is maybe sitting in a package receiving area, as yet undelivered because no one is there to accept it. Laughing (That's not our fault, of course.) The last one I have asked for tracking info, but I suspect it could have been delivered today, or maybe tomorrow. Just from the timing.

So get out and scrape the ice off the porch and have a look around. Ho Ho Ho!

Carlos santa

Hi Guys. My package arrived yesterday but internet service at Casa Johnson has left a great deal to be desired. In fact I've lost service while trying to do this post.
Santa was very kind to me (sorta puts the whole naughty and nice thing in doubt). He obviously has been reading my mail because everything I got was straight off my favorites list. Well, one exception and that's because I never heard of it before.
Here's the list:
1 50g tin of my all time favorite S. G. Squadron Leader
1 2 oz tin of G. L. Pease Westminster
1 2 oz tin of C & D Haunted Bookshop (also a favorite as well as the book)
1 tin of Ten Russians. If you love a good cup of coffee and a pipe, this is the tobacco for you. It's like it was specially blended to go with a hot cup of joe.
1 heavy plastic baggie of Chief Catoonah Princess St. Mixture (2012 Chicago Winner) This is the new one to me.
And finaly an F & T Canadian pipe.

I couldn't be more pleased. I'm smoking the Princess St Mixture in the new pipe right now. Excellent!

Will try to post a pic here in a few.

Fine job Santa. Something I remember from my first Secret Santa. The Knox Board forum, 2003. I received a tin of Squadron Leader. Along with several other items. That tin hit me at the right time as I was improving my technique, and introduced me to the wondrous world of English style blends. santa

Nicely done BH!! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy I fell for it!

It didn't occur to me that the bag and pipe don't match. The only other markings in the pipe are Danish Handmade and a first and last name. I can't make out the first name, but the last is either Ulsted or Tlsted. I will get a pic of the markings asap. Thanks for the help.

Tao & Ilstead

Also, a little reading in the Pipedia Danish section of makers provides snippets of information that provide support to that pretty solid suggestion.

Centurian, great haul. I take it you like Latakia. Laughing Ten Russians I take with me hiking in the woods, really balanced "Lat Bomb" if there ever was one.

Curious about that Chief Catoonah Princess St. Mixture! Thoughts?

Cool

Ladies and gents, Good Morning to all!

We still have a few packages in the system. So some of the BoB's are going to end up waiting till after Christmas day itself. I wish I could change that, but there just isn't time. I understood from a posting at our Post Office that they would be open a half-day tomorrow. That may not now be accurate and they may have the day off. Lets' see what shakes out over the next few days as the big package rush gets cleaned up. Keep checking for USPS and UPS packages. Yes, at least one of these is probably coming UPS. So if you have a special place a UPS driver puts things, check there.

Everyone will get a package, just give it a little time.

Enjoy the company of those you are with this Merry Christmas.

Carlos santa

10-4 that, Cent.

Also, fingers crossed my Santa gets there on time, but it's looking pretty grim at this point. However, provided bad luck didn't befall the box, it'll be worth it. I figured two week's time would have been plenty! Neutral Worked okay last year.

Cool

I got my secret Santa gift a few days back. Sorry for such a late post. My secret Santa sent me a very appropriately chosen book called "The Pipe Book, Alfred Dunhill". I'm guessing several of you have read it, but I have not, so thanks Santa. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

Okay so I thought I had gotten my SS gift a while back but I was wrong. I got my SS gift today and man am I blown away. This month's bombing mission and Secret Santa have me floored.



Now I just have to get one more and I will have my Peterson pipe rack full. This is freaking awesome. Thank you very very much to my SS you are freaking awesome.

Between Secret Santa and the monthly bombing, you're gonna be busy for quite a while. Both of the pipes are beauties, but that 2010 is REALLY something. Congrats to you!

WooHoo! Way to go Santa's!

Our Post Office was open today. The few that are still waiting, be sure to check the weeds. I am still waiting to hear on one tracking number and I am going to track the other now. Ok, Santa says that there is a package sitting in the Post Office at Boulder, CO. So that one is almost delivered.

The one coming from Santa's etailer could be anywhere. I am not sure I can get any more info on that one. It will just suddenly appear. I suspect via UPS. But they are usually good to me.

So the sooner I can get that last tracking number and see what's up with that one, the better.

Have a Merry Christmas everyone! santa

I think my Santa's shop is a little busy this year, and I think there's another elf being made, too... non-traditional Santa for a non-traditional guy--I'm cool with that. My post may be a little late. Mostly because I'm a pain.

Cool
