    I have a buddy I work with, who although not leaving the company is moving to a different department. He's my fathers age, 65, and enjoys a good cigar and a glass of wine out in his garage watching hockey on the big screen after a day of work. Well, the generosity bug of this forum has infected me, and as a parting gift I thought I'd buy him a nice cigar and perhaps a pipe. So I'm about to purchase myself a Nording freehand, and one for himself as well, along with a Camacho Pre-Embargo cigar, and perhaps some pipe tobacco. Maybe I'll just give him a good portion of my Black House and perhaps some Captain Black White for when his wife is around. He's a great all around guy. Helped me out a few times when I was in a real financial pinch, and even gave away some of his work hours for me a few times. And although, in his mind, I don't owe him anything in return, I think I owe him this as a show of respect and gratitude. Not only for the help, but for being a stand up guy. Just wanted to share.


    Cut me... I bleed black.

    Sounds great, I'm sure he will be moved

    I know what I need, smoke, I can't recall the last time I tasted it....Gandalf in the mines of Moria.

    "we shall have to share pipes, as good friends must at a pinch'....'I keep a treasure or two near my skin, as precious as rings to me. Here's one: my old wooden pipe. And here's another an unused one...He held up a small pipe with a wide flattened bowl, and handed it to Gimli. 'Does that settle the score between us', said Merry. 'Most noble hobbit, it leaves me deep in your debt."

    Heck... I may buy myself a Camacho as well and catch a hockey game with him. (I just want to watch the game on his huge screen )

    Thanks all I'll get my tax check in a few weeks, and will order it then. I've written it down and put it where i'll see it everyday to keep me motivated to do so. I think it's going to be a lot of fun and I can't wait to see the look on his face when I present it. I know for a fact his eyes are going to light up like a kid in a candy store.

    Isn't it great when you can achieve that response in someone you respect? Sounds like a great idea...very good playing it forward.

    It is, chakaraka. I'm really looking forward to it. I'll let everyone know how it all pans out when it happens.
