I'd go to www.smokingpipes.com and buy some McConnell Oriental and Scottish Cake, maybe a couple tins of something JF Germain,some Penzance, and if I have any dough left I'd bulk it out on blackrope.

If it were $100 of "found money", I'd finally cave in and try the Seattle Pipe Club blends on pipesandcigars.com (they're NY-based, so I pay the outrageous tax on it.)

3 each of the small tins of SPC Plum Pudding and MS River, and 1 of Seattle Evening, plus tax comes out to about $100.

I would go out to the truck and cabbage onto any loose change and buy as much good weed as I could.

500g Charles Fairmorn Sterling Balkan $25.59
500g Charles Fairmorn Lancers Slices $31.99
500g G&H #12 $43.29

Total $100.87

(2) 8 oz. tins of GLP Cumberland at $28.89 each.

(2) 12 oz. tubs of John Middleton Walnut at $14.50 each.

(1) 2 oz. tin of C&D Exhausted Rooster at $7.85.

That might leave enough for the shipping and handling costs.

I guess I would stock up on C&D Organic Pipe Dreams from smokingpipes.com ($10.37 * 10 = $103.70- $100.00 = $3.70).
Can I borrow $3.70 till payday? :bounce:

"you know, something better than Walnut,,,"

like wet oak leaves with a top dressing of rubber cement?!?

Just kidding, I rather like the stuff and appreciate its price.

I'd lay the $100 bill out on TJ's back porch and when he scurried out to grab it (no banker could pass it up, it's in their DNA!!) I'd snatch one of his ice chests and make hell for the county line :lol!:

Hopefully it wouldn't be the ice chest full of Erinmore :shock: :x

These days, $100 will buy 5 tubs of ERRd or 7 tubs of PA. Considering that ERRd is to be no more, my first try would be the ERRd. If ERRd was not available, however many tubs of PA and a few Walnut would work nicely. I'm dismayed that 5Bros is up to $3.75-$4.00/pouch. A few of them would also be pleasant to smoke.
