PostSubject: The Kind of Folks We Have Here!   Thu May 14, 2009 11:44 am

A couple of weeks ago I asked our own Winslow & Carlos to bring me back some literature and stuff from the Chicago show which they both attended. Earlier this week an envelope from Winslow and a box from Carlos arrived. The box was loaded up with cards, a Sam Gawith hat, assorted literature and a sampler pack from Altadis. The envelope was filled with more cards and literature. Both of these men spent considerable time at the show gathering ephemera for a fellow board member. It's one of many "only in this hobby" stories that I've heard and been a part of over the years. For whatever reason though the brotherhood seems to run a little deeper here than on other forums...

Thanks for hooking me up guys!

I won't say whom, I respect their privacy, however, I've been gifted 3 pipes and baccy not available in the USA since joining here. This all came about unsolicited, and is evidence that BoB is NOT just a term, it's a community! I've even been given a copy (though dated) of AutoCAD software!

Without a doubt very BEST forum and collection of humans I've ever been privileged to be a part of! cheers cheers cheers
