    The other day, I got a private message from a forum member saying he had a Peterson 03 Silver Capped that he wanted me to have. I asked if I could send him some tobacco or something else, he replied "no thanks". I was speechless.

    I open the box that arrived yesterday and was totally blown away, not only was it in great shape, it just needed a cleaning, but it was a Peterson Hinged Lid. This forum member knows I like Peterson pipes, and I have a decent sized Hinged Lid collection.

    I got it cleaned and polished.

    Thank You, Ashdigger, I'm am blown away by your generosity.

    Before cleaning.

    After cleaning.



    So you say you can drink? Well, I'm from Wisconsin. Try to keep up.

    That looks great. I often thought about getting one with that kind of cap, but never did. You'll be enjoying that for years! Congrats to you and Ashdigger.

    Nicely done, Tim. And glad you have such a beauty, 'yoda. Makes me feel warm all over.

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Nice looking pipe and what a nice gift!

    As I do all of my smoking outside I find capped pipes like this particularly appealing although I don't own one yet.

    Is it ever going to stop ashdigger? I mean you have to be running low on stock by now bud. Very kind person to say the least. What a nice pipe as well. Enjoy! I agree that we have a great community here.
