Jim (Jimbo on SF) noted that my digital camera got wrecked by our younger daughter and very kindly sent me his old Olympus C-350 camera. Although it is an older camera it is still a dandy bit of kit, me being the plank that I am I couldn't get it to take a close-up photo of a pipe worth a peek at. Jim set me right on that and now I have it taking pretty good pictures, they aren't wonderful as I am possibly the worlds worst camera operator.

Along with the camera Jim also sent me a truly delightful little Barling pipe, and it is absolutely wonderful, Jim sent along with the pipe a rather kindly sample of Esoterica Tilbury to be getting on with the Barling, and the two pair up rather handsomely I must say. I shall in future use the Barling for plug tobacco as it is a perfect size for just that, this is the Barling:



Bowl Height:1 1/2"
Bore: 3/4"
Pipe length: 5"

So very kind of you Jim, thank you so much.

Good show!
I like pics, post more!
And stop apologising, for the things you've never done,
because time is short and life is cruel,
but it's up to us to change this town called malice... Cool

Cheeky rascals, take a piccie of the camera indeed Laughing

In its day it would have looked like this: http://www.itreviews.com/olympus-camedia-c-350-zoom/ but this camera is like 8+ years old and has travelled the Globe with Jim, it has suffered a little wear and tear but still works well enough, I couldn't be more pleased by Jim's amazing kind heartedness. cheers

Jimbo must be a helluva guy! I really like that old Barling Kirk. That is one pipe brand I would love to have in my collection, but as of yet I have not added one. I hear they are fantastic! cheers cheers cheers

Heya 'D',

Jim is one of those guys who you goes that extra mile for folk, we have two and fro'd with exchanging baccy samples with one another for a while now and we have chatted a great deal via PM's and got to know each other pretty well. I have come to consider Jim as a good friend, so much so that we have shared personal stuff with each other I don't tend to like sharing and have come to feel very close to him. Jim has been through the wringer of late with some seriously heavy duty personal stuff and you know what, even in his darkest hours he has always been a caring and considerate chap, a better friend one couldn't wish to have is my feelings.
