Thank you. I though maybe it had a special meaning for the pipers here on the forum.

You are welcome.

There is a list of commonly used acronyms somewhere and my search-fu is inadequate to the task of finding it. Maybe someone else will post a link.

Glad to have you at BoB!

Thank you for the greeting.  New to this forum but not new to pipes.  After I retired I have time to renew my love of pipes.  More time for slow smokes.
Thank you also for the acronyms.

No, I like cats. I got the name when I worked at Caterpillar inc. and was sort of the guy people would come to for gun info or buy, sell and trades.

Hey. As a matter of form, I will bring it to our attention that there's an attribution thing missing: I think a tip o' the hat is due to the creator of that list, Mr. Kyle Weiss, whom some of you may have heard of.

or in my case a tip o' the biretta...

I wonder if the list should be a sticky somewhere with credit to Kyle? I thought it was already and came up empty. I figured I was looking in the wrong place.

I am glad Cart posted it. I remember being a little befuddled with some of the acronyms when I arrived. BoB was my first experience with the online pipe smoking community.

Anyway since he was brought up, There's one more acronymy type do hickey.

Eff you kyle = Kyle crawled out from under his meh rock to come try to rattle cages.

It already is a sticky, and has Kyle's hoof prints all over it. The lad is a legend, who strides the earth like a colossus.

Confident that I had searched "acronym" and "abbreviation" both with no results, I tried it now and got Kyle's guide both times. It is a mystery and maybe I misspelled both words when I searched. It could happen, but I feel like an idiot suggesting my spelling is that bad.

Thanks... Tom
