The jolly old elf, Santa, was past here today also. Forgive the cluttered photo. I just shoved things around on my reloading bench to get a decent pic.

From C&D, Small Batch Sansepolcro & Super Balkan.
Dunhill Nightcap (Always a favorite)
Yummy Peterson Irish Flake, 1792 Flake, and Lakeland Dark.
Generous bags of Gawith Black Irish Twist, Brown Irish X, Dark Flake Unscented, McClelland 2035 Dark Navy Flake, a pouch of Murray's Warrior Plug (which is outstanding).

Goodies,(which I can never seem to find and decide upon myself),
Mandarin Green Tea
Butterfields' Peach Buds candy
Gillespie's Peanuts
Two bags of Salted peanuts from Georgia
Two different dark chocolate bars of a type unknown to me.
Moravian Sugar Cookies
Two "Durn Good" season
And a bag of fluffly, tapered, bristle, BJ Long pipe cleaners.

WOW! Thanks Santa! sunny

Keep those eyes peeled. It was so windy here packages could have been blown down the street. I know that some have been delivered. Some are on the way. Some have not yet been sent. We still have a few days for mailing. And there may even be a few sneaky types taking advantage of the chaos cherry .


Ho Ho Ho! santa

My secret Santa delivery ended up being a two parter - one arrived this past Saturday (with no confirmation from target), and the second half got sent away today, with a hopeful delivery of Friday...

My poor recipient is gonna get buried! I can't wait to see the results.

*G.L Pease union square
G.L Pease Haddos Delight
*Captain Earls Ten Russians
C&D Old Joe Krantz

*3.5 oz of McClelland Dark Star

Those aren't just stocking stuffers, they're stocking busters--great work, everyone! Warms my cockles to to see so much holiday cheer up in this thread...even as I fear for those of us not yet visited as Krampusnacht draws down around us. If I don't post for a while y'all will know it's cause I ended up stuffed in a sack, beaten with sticks, and thrown in the river.

Again.

Santa arrived over the weekend. Not sure if he got here Saturday or Sunday, lol. I just got around to opening the box and it is full of pipemaking supplies! I haven't had time to take pics yet. Heath had sinus surgery on Monday and I have been taking care of him since. For those of you who know him you know just how hard it is to get him to sit still for more than 3 minutes. I'll get some pics as soon as I can and get a list together of all the goodies!

Thanks Santa!!! I love you I love you I love you

Well my fellow North Carolinian Santa decided to blow up my mail box yesterday with a rich assortment of goodies. Let me say that i'm humbled by the generosity that's been shown, and very much appreciative for everything that was included. Here's a picture of the damage:



Secret Santa 2017 - BOB's Tenth (Wow!) - Page 6 20171210

A delicious assortment of chocolates & candy canes that will be eaten up shortly! Some excellent Eastern Carolina BBQ sauce that'll fuel some state wide rivalries on proper pulled pork. And some most appreciated tobacco:

PS Luxury Bullseye Flake '13
PS Luxury Twist Flake ''15
McC Dark Navy Flake '15
Wessex Campaign Dark Flake '15
Orlik Golden Sliced '16
SG BBF '15
SG SJF '14
SG FVF '07 (!)
McC Rich Virginia Ribbon '09
McC Stave-Aged VA 35 Ribbon '14
Rattray's Marlin Flake '14

And the icing on the cake was this sweet straight grained plateau top pipe. So way over the top!

Many thanks to my not-so-Secret-Santa...may you have a wonderful Christmas and maybe a little paybacks along the way. And Happy Holidays to all playing along and taking such good care of one another!

Seconding the curiosity about the pipe's provenance, and the admiration for it! Really great haul even not taking that beauty into account, and that definitely takes it to the next level. You must've been awfully good...or awfully careful not to get caught!

Santa has to use some two wheeled dollies to haul around some of those boxes! Just amazing! Very generous of you folks!

Santa still has some pickups and drops to make. The expected mailing date is tomorrow. I know one Santa who better get a move on.

Ho Ho hO! santa

Uh, oh! That Jolly Old Elf got sneaky. He is a day early... someone is about to get bombed! Check those porches, a double-portion of holiday joy is fixin' to descend on you!!!


Checking this out further, Santa got confused... he somehow got the boxes separated, so it looks like one will be delivered today and then you'll get hit with a second wave tomorrow. No more peppermint schnapps for Santa! drunken santa
