Today I get home from work to find a small USPS Priority Mail package in the mailbox.
I did recently order some crap for my RC Planes (parts) but just ordered them Friday, so I knew that was out.

The package came from Alabama, so that limited the choices/suspects even more.

I open the box to find a pipe bag and a beautiful Moretti Rhodesian pipe.
No letter, no note, no packing slip, nothing.

The pipe is great, brand new / unsmoked, and there couldn't have been a better surprise for today.
Needless to say, I was completely shocked and totally speechless!

Now, for the 2 questions that remain:  

1. - Who did it?

2. - What to break it in with?






To the culprit - I now have your address, and vengeance will be mine.  Twisted Evil

Seems to me ikeenum lives in 'bama.

I was completely stunned and initially speechless!

I've never owned a Moretti, and this is a fantastic specimen.

As far as blends, a think that a nice VA is in order for breaking this one in - maybe some FMC 2000.

Many congrats Rob, that's a beauty, and much kudos to the bomber.
It's a mystery isn't it?
I don't know but I wouldn't be suckered by the Alabama postmark, I reckon you may have to look much further North to find the culprit.
Just a 'feeling in my water' - no proof or knowledge involved.

You suspect the bearded fat guy who lives near the North Pole?

And he's not talking about Santa Claus.  
Though this guys gives out much better gifts than Santa - or so i've heard.

Cool


Honestly i'm still blown away by the generosity.
I'd have been happy to receive a good MM Cob.  Very Happy

I'm now on my 2nd bowl of FMC 2000 in my new Moretti Rhodesian.

Man - this thing smokes like a dream and it isn't even broke in.

Rob, I hope she brings you many quality smokes, and turns out to be one of your favorites! If I were you, I would break her in with some Fragrant Matured Cake so she smells like maple syrup when you wake up in the morning. Wink

You son of a gun, I thought that name/addy was you!

Man, that was way too much, but it's greatly appreciated.
Don't worry about the pipe, as she's already in regular rotation.

The FMC smokes great in it, and I have an unopened tin of Erinmore Flake just waiting to be cracked open today.



Hhhmmmmm, pancake sryup and juicy fruit. what a combo of flavors to build up in that pipe.  lol!

Dutch, I've been distracted for a few days so didn't get to see how this unfolded. Your reply really made me laugh, but more importantly that was a brilliant piece of bombing. 2 x very happy chaps. Great work Very Happy
