Another case of not realizing how much you'll miss something until it's gone.

    I was walking through the living room, and my 8 yr old had Legos all over the floor. In trying to avoid them, I lost my balance, fell, and broke the stem on my old CAO meerschaum. A very clean break. This is a simple, but nice bent 6 paneled affair. I love smoking Virginias and VaPers through it. I ordered some "Weld-On 4" Acrylic Adhesive, and plan on repairing the stem. This is an excellent adhesive, water thin (i.e., no big glue joint) no blushing, fairly fast setting (few minutes) with excellent strength.

    I was not happy without my Meer. I hadn't ralized how much I relied on that pipe, and I have also been on major VA/VaPer kick.

    Not to be caught with my pants down again, I thoroughly scoured the Bay of E, and bought 3 Meerchaums. One really decent looking Meers. 1 pricier CAO, and 2 $30.00 pipes, a CAO Lattice Freehand looking job (possibly CAO), and an SMS that I might classify as a bent prince. I figure that with a triple redundancy, next time I'm pretty set. Now I just have to avoid the dreaded PAD. Also have to avoid those Fred Bass threads!

    Everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will go through life thinking it is stupid.

    And stay away from those pipe killing legos!

    Don't put the 3 Meers together. If you fall on em you have a chance to decapitate all three lol.

    On a serious note, glad to hear you fixed up the wounded pipe. Ease our mind with some pics of the new beauties when possible!

    I know it's not funny and it sucks majorly a pipe was harmed in the process, but yeah... I recall how much stepping on a Lego in the dark hurts ! I believe they are the cause of more cussing than anything else in the world

    Glad to hear the pipe is fixable though.

    "The fact is, squire, the moment a man takes to a pipe, he becomes a philosopher. It's the poor man's friend; it calms the mind, soothes the temper, and makes a man patient under difficulties. It has made more good men, good husbands, kind masters, indulgent fathers, than any other blessed thing on this universal earth."

    And yes, Mick. That is quite a profound profundity.
