    Does anyone know how Jim Lilley is doing? I used to follow his Peterson Blog and this past fall he found he was unable to keep doing it due to Alziemers. I wondered if anyone knew Jim or his family and could give us an update. He is a fine gentleman and did a lot of work for the pipe world.

    Thanks,

    Piper

    I do not think he is doing that well. His family is selling his Peterson's thru eBay.

    Fine gentleman indeed! Jim's Pete collection is mind boggling. Got me interested in Peterson Pipes and history.

    I was pleased to read that Jim Lilley's world renowned Sandpiper Collection of Petersons probably will not be auctioned off as originally expected.

    Apparently, Tom Palmer of Peterson has "enthusiastically accepted" the Lilley family's suggestion that it would seem much more appropriate for the collection to be housed "in perpetuity" at Peterson's shop/museum on Nassau Street in Dublin.

    Great to know. Sorry to hear of his troubles with alzheimer's. My brother-in-law is dealing with that now and it's tough on everyone.

    That is certainly nice of Peterson to accept those pipes. That has to be one awesome Peterson collection.

    I don't believe I know the Gentleman, but I am sad to hear he is not well. I would dearly love to see a site of his collection. Is there one that someone could provide a link to?

    If at first you don't succeed, have another bowl.
