    I was working across the lake from New Orleans today and stumbled across this wonderful old B&M hidden away in Covington, La...name of the place is Jewels Cigar and Tobacco...they have a wonderful collection of estate pipes...most are not cleaned or polished...but I didn't care..I picked up two gems for next to nothing...can't wait to get home and ream and clean them...1st was a nice Sav. Autograph and the 2nd a Tim West freehand ...they had a nice selection of custom blended tobacco...no tins that I saw...I highly recommend stopping in if anyone is around New Orleans...

    NOLA, is it located in downtown Covington? My daughter lives just outside of town in Abita Springs. Probably be in that area in the next few weeks when the trout start biting near the twin spans.

    I have family in Mandeville, and we are visiting in late April for a wedding. We are staying at a hotel in Covington, so thanks for the tip; I will definitely visit Jewels!

    Is that a stampede I hear in the distance? Has everyone revised their summer vacation plans just now?
    Move fast, Louisiana people, the outlanders are all off getting oil changes as you read this post.
