Woohoo!  Another great Secret Santa package dropped on someone.


Navyflake, I sent you a PM.  I'll help with the pic.  (Done!  Go back a page and check it out.)


I have an address to pass on.  Will do so once I am in the Hamshack to double-check my spreadsheet.  I am in the office watching an auction of ourdoors stuff at the moment.  Can't be in two places at once.  I try, of course. (PM sent to the Secret Santa. Thanks so much for waiting!)


Ho Ho Ho!

This is a testament to the quality of our members here. Per capita, we must have some of the "nicest" members of any forum. With all of these Santa deliveries, I've yet to see coal delivered to any of us.

Thanks for that. Couldn't figure out how to resize it on my phone. Rolling Eyes

I'm enjoying some stroopwafels and jersey creams with my coffee this morning. I'm going to have to find them both locally...I'm addicted.

Thanks again, Santa!

And a big Thank You to Carlos for putting this together again this year.

Just to let my Secret Santa know their crate of goodies arrived yesterday. I have gotten as far as taking a photo of the Christmas paper wrapped packages but have not had the chance to unwrap them and take a photo as I’ve been busy with medical stuff and exhausted as well, I have my ivIG infusion tomorrow but will try to have photos and a real thank you posted shortly, regards.

I post processed the wrapped packages as a tease since I’ll be heading out for another appointment shortly, if I don’t run out of gas I will try to get them unwrapped, take a photo and let everyone know what the stash is, regards.

Well I got home and my neighbor who receives all my stuff due to medical needs, appointments etc. was having a problem with his PC so of course even if my right leg was falling off I’d go over to help for all he does for me.

Get there and thankful it ends up a very easy fix so we hung around for a bit and he brought me home with some Exhausted Rooster I’d had shipped to him.

Catching my second wind I decided to brew a cup Sumatra Coffee, strong and black, open the presents and document them.

So here goes:

Aside from the outstanding card of Santa Clause and this delicious Sumatra Coffee there is:

A jar of Kobuk Samovar Tea

50 grams jars of the following

Marlin Flake dated 8/18

IRC Slices dated 9/18

Pebble Castle dated 10/8

BBQ Blend dated 11/16

A tin of C&D Small Batch Carolina (which I’ve been dying to try!)

A pack of 6” pipe cleaners and a bundle of 12” for a Churchwarden

So to ensure I could use the 12” a Churchwarden was included

A nicely turned piece of wood with bark still on it, not an ash tray but a pipe rest, I plan to stage my day’s rotation in it.

So thank you very much to my Secret Santa, warmest regards and keep it smokey, mm, that’s good coffee!

No kidding, I was looking at my email when the available alert came in and clicked the link to find it sold out already! Then I got another email alert from a local that had 100 tins, clicked that and sold out.

Well done Santa's everywhere!!!

I was slogging through the mire of my day to day, when my oldest decided to go check the mail.  She came back with an alabaster colored package of suspicious dimensions and alarming heft. With the recent images of Briar Beagle's yard, and home (or whats left of it) in mind, it was with no small amount of trepidation that I carefully opened the ominous looking parcel.  Inside I found the following: 100g tin of HH Vintage Syrian, 1.5 oz tin of Sutliff Great Outdoors, 50g tin of St. James Flake, 50g tin of Cult Blood Red Moon, 1.5oz pouch of Sutliff 516 RVL-1, some Edwards tobacco bulk Maple Supreme and Honey Cavendish, some Chapel Hill Toffee, a can of Birdsong Brewing Co's Mexicali Stout, 1 pound of Ritual Monte Alban coffee, a pack of Longs pipe cleaners, a cherry wood dice tray (for rolling your dice in style), a signed, autographed and super spiffified copy of "A Crown for Cold Silver" by Alex Marshall, and last (but certainly not least) a very VERY cool HS Studios straight billiard pipe with melting wax finish.  And all of this was accompanied by an awesome hand written note with artwork.  I've never tried the Vintage Syrian before, but the description sounds very exciting and it smells absolutely wonderful.  Great outdoors and Blood Red Moon have long been on my list of blends I wanted to try, but been unable to due to being so financially challenged lately.  I'm finding that I like Virginias and the description for the St. James Flake sounds like it should be right in my wheel house.  Heck, who am I kidding? They all sound like they're in my wheel house!  The only problem with this embarrassment of riches is trying to decide which one to smoke first (at the moment, I'm leaning pretty heavily towards the Vintage Syrian).  As for the dice tray, that was a truly insightful gift, and having had Chapel Hill toffee once before, I will be guarding that like Smeagol with the ring "PRECIOUS! MY PRECIOUS!! STAY AWAY NASTY TEENAGE NIBBLY THINGS!  MY TOFFEE! MY PRECIOUS!!" Hiss Hiss.
Ever since I first heard about "A Crown for Cold Silver" and the Crimson Empire trilogy, I've been wanting to read it, as it's written in one of my favorite genres and rumor has it, some of the characters smoke pipes. The fact that it's an autographed copy makes it even more special.

With as rough as things have been lately (and I know I certainly don't have a corner on that market), the timing of this package couldn't have been better.  An absolute blessing.  I know it's been said before, but this group of folks we have here is something very very special.  So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you secret Santa, and thank you Carlos for putting this all together.  afro

Well, it's finally on its way and will be to its destination by or on Monday! I am so sorry for the delay. I am actually awaiting one or two final pieces for Secret Santa that I will have to ship when they arrive. So Mr Recipient, expect another package to come later...

Carlos, thank you for your patience and for putting this together, it is a heck of a lot of fun. I will already be looking forward to next season. I pray all of us will be here and be in good health. cheers
