    Matched Grain Pipe-Desirabilty

    When I see “matched grain” pipes I think of Kaywoodie.

    Just got a new car! This was the first new car I’ve bought that didn’t come with a permanent dealer badge.

    What Are You Smoking Pages.

    Last smoke of the day is year 2020 Angler's Dream in a 2018 natural smooth medium bend Peterson 03 apple silver spigot military mount with a tapered black acrylic fish tail stem. Just fed cats again, finished reading the box scores, and am reading while this bowl lasts.

    STG to Acquire Mac Baren.

    You’re right book keeping for a shop is a full time job. Every stick and ounce of tobacco has to be accounted for but it’s the distributor that has to deal with importation issues. You’re right again about Sutliff, lots of shops reformulated McClelland components in house mixtures with Sutliff...

    Selling your McClelland's?

    Yeah but with Pipestud he knows the weights and you’re likely to pop a perfect tin. LoL! I could buy 15 pounds of my favorite Balkan for $600. People spend that on a forgettable night out. At least least you’ll have a week of bliss. Either it’s a cheap bucket list check off or couch change.

    Reducing indoor smell/staining

    I have a Rabbit Air with the charcoal smoke filter and it helps but you’ll know a pipe smoker lives here when you walk in the door. I smoke cigars in my car and it’s pretty toxic. We just live with it and the car gets handed down, not traded in.

    I was bobbing in the pool yesterday overhearing a conversation between a surgical tech from Denver and her mom. She said the hospital’s new management team was cut throat in saving money at all costs. She felt semi safe from job loss/time cut because she was knew how to put together the trays...

    Welcome! What Edward’s mixtures do you miss? Many were just renamed bulk blends. I’ll be Zooming with a former Edward’s shop owner tonight. He might know what was what.

    Left handed pipe smokers

    I’ve got a collection of big pipes with plateau tops and a couple are definitely lefties.

    Floods in Texas

    They probably spent more on the skulls than they have in the bank. From my understanding these people are in a cult of personality. Most can’t rub two nickels together that they earned but are dependent on Uncle Sugar for everything.

    Overseas Pipe Ordering Advice...

    They have a DHL account. If you were on the hook (as I’ve been) for the return it would probably cost you $70.00 bucks to send it back securely.

    How light sensitive is jarred tobacco?

    If your storage place it to bright you’ll know it. The exposed jars will steam up.

    The Chicago Show seemed to be successful and I had a great time! The new location was really nice and all the services I used were perfect. Had a nice time hanging with @BriarBeagle for awhile Thursday.

    Very Sad News. RIP I’ve known Craig for a long time. We shared a love for all things Dunhill. Here we are together at the show in 2013.
