PostSubject: It's Over But I still Can't Believe It Just Yet...   Sun Aug 22, 2010 9:54 pm

As you guys saw today, the market for pipes is VERY strong. I sold close to 150 pipes in two days. I have a dealer looking to buy the four that remain and I suspect them sold too now. Folks are very passionate about the hobby even though our economy sucks! Good news indeed.

Personally, I'm feeling optomistic about things but still sad about the friends with whom I'll likely see a whole lot less of now. Bittersweet sums it up. I actually shed a tear today when boxing up the very last lot. It was like saying goodbye to family members. Hmmm..... Twelve years of eating, drinking, breathing and being broke from my pipes/tobacco purchases and boom, now it's all over but a trip to the post office in the morning Shocked

Still though, I've changed in dramatic ways. I no longer spend my days and nights in front of a computer screen. I'm out meeting new folks and living life. When I was fat and listless I wanted to hide from the world, now I wanna go take a big bit out of it. I actually feel alive.

Thanks for letting me share this letter and a big part of my 20's with you all and a special thank you for all of the letters of support from my closest friends here. When you leave anything, you learn most who your truest buddies are. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE! Laughing

Ok, I've rambled enough and am actually signing off for the last time now. No more dramatic B.S. from me Smile If anyone ever needs or wants to get ahold of me do so here: dock_perry@yahoo.com

Love to you all. Wish me luck!

All the best Dock and a good time to do it... Very Happy

Many, like me, will remain as Cliff Claven and hang out at Cheers with our pipe and beer and shout "Norm !!" when he comes through the door.
