Wow. I sent a friend a couple tins of a tobacco I knew he was looking for.  No big deal; I had several in the cellar and was happy to pass some along.  A few weeks later I received a mystery gift box from said friend. Upon opening it I was surprised to see that it contained a pipe. Barely visible through the wrapping was a white dot. "Nah!" I thought. Then I looked at the stamping on the bottom. Sure enough. It's a beautiful Tanshell saddle bit billiard. Certainly a gift that far outweighs the small gesture I made.  As I said out the outset, "Wow."

What a fine friend you have there. It's an outstanding gesture. Above and beyond you might say!

Cool


Cheers,

RR

That’s an awesome gift. I’m always been blown away by the generosity of piper’s in general. One good deed deserves another.

You're right. A while back I received a very nice Peterson from a member here who no longer smokes; he read about my penchant for them and sent one along to me.  Actually two: a nice bent pot and another, obviously a Peterson "second" the name of which I can't recall.  It's in the truck and it's 32 degrees here right now so you'll have to trust me on this, but it's a nice little 1/2 bent with a p-lip which I love.  Generous indeed.

Actually I don't think I ever publically acknowledged that gift.  Here they are (the pot is shown pre-band polishing), and if you're still here, you know who you are.  Thanks...

Idlefellow, regarding the photos of the Petes, I don't know whether it was intentional or not, but the way you've got them positioned, with the sun hitting the bark of the branch just so it it looks as if a tiny wisp of smoke is coming out of each of their bowls!  Extraordinary!!

Ha! I never notice that; good eye! Not intentional I assure you; I'm not that good!
