They gave up! Those that remember me, I see a lot of new names, may remember that I was forced to give up the pipe because of invasive insurance practices enforced by my past employer who provides our insurance. Well, this week I got a notice in the mail that we (retirees) no longer have to comply to their nonsense. No more "health coaches", exercise and diet logs, weigh-ins, blood tests, etc.

I can only guess the expense of operating the ridiculous program proved less than beneficial. Whatever the reason, I am SO happy to have them out of my life! I probably will not start back smoking on a daily basis, but at least now I feel free to have a bowl at leisure without having to hide from the gestapo.

I have been so happy... thinking of framing the letter. lol

Hope everyone here is doing well and enjoying good health. I'll have me a look around in a bit.

Jack

The last I knew, you were doing a divestiture thing, getting rid of your pipes, one of which reposes on a bookcase in my living room. Any pipes left to speak of? A friend of mine did the same thing, giving me about four of his Charatans. Later, he wanted them back. Unfortunately I had traded them.  Embarassed 

In any event, welcome back to the fold, Jack.

Oh, I am fine on pipes, I saved back two of my favorite Nordings, and I still have a nice Neerup apple that went un-purchased, so I still have that. Those three pipes will see me through for a good while. I also kept my nice leather pouch from Frank at Sorringowl, I am SO glad I kept that.

But yeah, it feels like I have a load off my shoulders just not being held so accountable every step of the way. Perhaps I will get to experience a bit of freedom before my demise. lol

It is nice to be back and to see all of the old familiar names as well as so many newer members. Thank you so much for the welcome.

Jack

Jack! Great to hear from you. That's good news indeed. There seems to be a growing trickle of the older guys dropping by the forum. Hope it continues.

Glad your back and that the insurance company gave up. My company recently switch providers and my coverage sucks nuts but at least there is not physical / smoking clause in our plan.

Glad to hear that...I've grown VERY fond of the pipe I picked up from your sale, and would hate to think that my enjoyment is coming at your expense!

Congrats on the victory...I'd frame that letter and hang it in a place of honor - right above your favorite smoking chair!
