    Got myself Missouri Meerschaum- American Patriot and Peterson- Wild Atlantic. Haven`t tried any of these before but they are inexpensive so I decided to give it a try.

    Stopped at Straus in Florence Friday evening and picked up tins of Blue Mountain, Arcadia, and St Bruno Flake. Also had some serious PAD acquisitions off Ebay over the weekend.

    Yeah, too much...

    A beautifully grained Andrew Marks Egg with Plateau, Jerry Crawford Dublin with Strawberry wood and Bakelite, rusticated Larrysson Rhodesian... and an AL Pascia Curvy.

    I got lots of tobacco... Doblone d'Oro, 965, RY, Irish Oak and Shortcut to Mushrooms.

    Took the opportunity to shorten my list, at least temporarily, with 15% off and free shipping at Tobaccopipes.com,

    for a designated Latakia smoker. Love the brown rustication.

    P&C's email got me. I had a cart waiting and added to it. Pound each of grasmere, brown flake scented, Glengarry, a replacement MM legend to make up for the one I left in my tractor cup holder, plus some tins. Had to put in another order at SPC ton get the Frog cellar that P&C was out of plus a pound each of Cary Grant and Danny Kaye. Honestly, between a recent estate pipe hunt and these orders, I should be done buying for good. With the way the country is going though, it won't be long before tobacco and other interests of mine are all illegal, so might as well stock up!

    I picked up several Dunhill Tobacco's today. Nothing to exciting, but I had a credit at Smoking Pipes and 10% off helps a little.

    I also had a SPC credit, but that didn't stop me from grabbing some more Dunhill tins too!

    I also got samplers of the Kramer's Pipe Shop tobaccos, curious to see what they are all about.

    I ordered another Stanwell Authentic (unfinished) from Pipesandcigars, as well as a few tins of tobacco. And I finally got around to ordering Cult Blood Red Moon to try for the first time. I've stayed away from cherry blends after trying Captain Black Cherry five years ago and then having to be exorcised by a catholic priest, a rabbi, a shaman, a medicine man, a druid, a hippie, and Bob the street hotdog vendor from Main Street. Of course with a name like Cult Blood Red Moon, that may just happen again.... meh, Bob serves up a good hot dog, so that's a win.

    And I'll be getting the Goodie Bag for the first time ever. Usually I'm strapped for money when the big IPSD sale comes around, but I was able to make it happen this year. I'm actually excited about it

    Ordered some Escudo and a cigar sampler for a friend who is in the hospital. The site wide sales really paid off on that one.

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

    Hey Anthony. It was your email the other day on the other unfinished Stanwell that influenced me to order the same one above that you bought. I love that shape and will be my first unfinished. Thanks a lot enabler. The discount made that a really good deal.

    Haha! I was browsing Pipesandcigars.com having a terrible time deciding what to purchase. I really wanted another pipe, but didn't want to spend a lot on a pipe alone. I like my other Stanwell Authentic so much, that I finally said the heck with it and decided to grab another one. They really are a good deal... especially if you see how much The Danish Pipe Shop is selling them for https://www.danishpipeshop.com/d/Stanwell-Authentic-Raw-139-Slight-Bent-Billard-i3881.html Huge difference! Congrats on your first unfinished pipe. They really are fun to watch as they darken. And besides enabling is what we do here! Such terrible terrible peer pressure! Enjoy yours, David.

    Picked up a box of Bandidos (I have a soft spot for cheroots, watched a lot of westerns growing up) and a pound of Sutliffs Rum & Maple just to try something new. I haven't smoked an aro in a long time, I tend to stick to my Sam Gawaith.

    At this point in my cellaring, I really don't "need" anything, except as Sable says, "to deny my mortality." But, I did stock up on some GLP blends that I had missed being released over the summer. I am still perusing the catalogs online to see if any other companies have released anything I may have missed as well. I've already dove into the new C&D Cthulu and Judaic blends, and they are divine... well, it would probably be more proper to call the Cthulu blends "sublime" ha ha.

    Cosmic now that you pulled the trigger are you going to tell us that you like Stonehenge, or was it a different blend? If it is Stonehenge let it get almost crisp...fantastic finish

    Yep, Stonehenge. By the description, I would have never bought it. But with the graces and generosity of a forum member, I got to try a sample, and just fell in love with it, which is unusual, because even the slightest hint of honey or any other flavorings in my Virginia can set me off of it. But, it has a certain je ne sais quoi that appeals to me. I should have known that anything that Greg makes would appeal to me. Virginia Cream, certainly was not easy for me to acclimate to, but after he came on the forum to set me straight and gave me some suggestions on how best to appreciate it, I now have a stockpile of that one as well.

    Went to P&C to order, but everything I wanted was either back-ordered or out of stock. Guess I was late to the game, next time P&C.

    I did get something from SPC. Big ol tin of Navigator, and a couple of tins of the re-released stuff from C&D. Of course, I threw in a few tins of Gaslight because I want to hug it. I also purchased a tin of McClelland 40th Anniversary.

    Well, I kept PAD in check. No pipes purchased.

    I thought TAD was reigned in fairly well. I ordered a pound of Dark Flake, Unscented from SP.com and called it a day.

    Then P&C came out with the 20% and goodie bag and I was compelled, against my will, back to the keyboard.

    Haunted Bookshop, Irish Whiskey and Irish Flake plowed past my defensive line, dragging a goodie bag with them.

    Oh, and pipe cleaners. ALWAYS more pipe cleaners....
