So I had mentioned in another thread that I thought it would be cool to start a tobacco tin collection of some sort. Ol' Dawg (Jim) emailed and said he might be able to send me a couple. I thought that was pretty awesome of him. I got home today from a few days on the road and my neighbor gave us our mail. Here is what was in the package Jim had sent me:



That's a great Rocheleau 65A pipe (John Rochelau - great pipe maker, think he is somewhat retired) along with several tins, a number of pipe tobaccos to sample in and out of the tins, and a great pipe cloth.

I probably said, "Oh, wow," numbly to myself 8-9 times before my wife finally said, "Yes, dear. No need to say 'oh, wow' again."

The next words from my mouth were, "Oh, wow."

Just when I was thinking stories like this never get old to hear I get to tell one.

Thanks, Jim!
