Gentlemen,

Well, what a weekend. In the mountains, snow falling, an idyllic natural hot spring, surrounded by high peaks... It was perfect. I kept it simple and surprised her with the ring/proposal when the timing was just right. Thanks for all the suggestions!

In addition, I stopped at a cool little B&M in Montrose and... bought a pebble grain, 3/4 bent XXX Ashton, which, of course, I had absolutely no business doing, but did anyway. It was the second Ashton I have purchased from the proprietor, and the third pipe overall; he gave me a deal I could not refuse. I bought some Old Gowrie to smoke in the new briar; it was INCREDIBLE! I have never smoked OG before; any of you guys out there fans of this wonderful straight virginia? I am becoming a die hard for this stuff...

At any rate, all is well in my world!

Smoke on,

TB

Congratulations Trout Bum!
We've poked fun at you getting married & all but IMO marriage is a good thing.
It's what adds stability to my life, If not for marriage & children I would probably be in a real mess.

And also, congratulations on the last pipe purchace you'll ever make!! lol!

We are going to focus on the baby for right now. We will probably have a wedding/ceremony next summer. Also, we are both moving back to Alaska, and that means jobs/place to live, etc... So for right now, priorities are basically baby/move/settle in. That's a full plate, if you ask me!

Take care of her and your child Smile

What is her stance on the briar? I've seen relationships, including my own, founder over this.

A most hearty congratulations!!

There are 4 things you must never do: lie, steal, cheat, or drink.
But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love.
If you must steal, steal away from bad company.
If you must cheat, cheat death.
And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away... -old Irish proverb

Crongats on the pipe too!!!

Randy
