    I just a little peek at my shopping cart/wishlist on smokingpipes and I've amassed a nice little virtual collection of pipes. Could this be a new outlet for PAD? I don't know but the grand total is wayyyyyy out of my price range, so for now I will enjoy my image only pipes.

    LOL. I do the same thing, Mike. I am even sad when the pipes sell and become unavailable in my wish list.

    Not with pipes. I currently am in the market for an acoustic guitar. My shopping cart at Guitar Center has about 10 guitars in it. Funny thing is...I don't know how to play the guitar. I'm going to take lessons. Never too old to learn something new.

    Now put like that, I do have lots of barbering supplies in carts.

    Nope. Just say it, "Hi, my name is Mike & I suffer from PPD" (Pipe Porn Disorder)

    I am afflicted as well with TPD (tobaccos sitting in several online in-baskets) & PPD (pipes in eBay & ETSY Wish Lists).

    I always have about a half dozen pipes in my smoking pipes cart
    Not to mention about a dozen different blends I’m just waiting to pull the trigger on
    It’s funny though when I decide it’s time to order I some how manage to find different blends I would like to try and therefore keep bumping things into my wishlist
    Are they destined to stay there forever ? Not sure, such a shame.

    Keep calm...smoke a pipe.

    Look at the screen images while you smoke your Dr. Grabow; it could be a savings plan!

    Neal this just happened to me! A nice estate Stanwell was only in my cart for a day before someone stole it from me.

    I keep a couple examples around, mostly because I tell myself I'm going to splurge on a relatively expensive pipe one day (I'm lying to myself; I'm a huge cheapskate).

    I also keep a tin of Dunhill Elizabethan in my wishlist on smokingpipes, even though it's out of stock. It's a little shrine to Dunhill.

    I thought it was just me who did this I didn't realize how many pipes and tobacco I had virtually had accumulated until I looked at my wish list one day.

    The only practical solution...you must eventually unite with your virtual collection:

    fishnbanjo is the virtual collection to end all. HIs collection could stream for hours. Maybe there could be a cable channel, also with peck, sable, foggymountain's Dunnys, etc.

    I did Pinterest for exactly two days. Then I realized that you get nothing whatsoever out of the whole endeavor. You just make groups of pictures for nothing and no reason. I am amazed that some of these social media ideas actually work.

    Give me a few days at least to drool over it at least, right?
