    The man from Maurice once again showed his generous spirit with the gift depicted below.

    It's a Bill Sargent 7" plus Canadian made here in Topeka when Bill co-owned Rex's Pipe Shop over thirty years ago. I've always been fascinated by his pipes and Bradley was kind enough to share one with me.

    Mr. Simmons, I am honored to have you as a friend. I treasure our correspondence and look forward to the day when we can finally shake hands. I try to emulate you and that just might be the finest way I can pay my respect. You've befriended so many people on this board and helped new pipers fill out a rotation plus been so giving with your tobacco selection.

    I want to be just like you, my friend.

    Fnord

    It ain't the way I wanted it! I can handle things! I'm smart! Not like everybody says - like dumb - I'm smart and I want respect!

    What a fine holiday gesture --- and response! It's a great story of mutual friendship and respect. Good goin' guys.

    Cool pipe Jim! I only recently learned of Bill Sargent when a gent who lives just west of Topeka sent me a couple of his pipes to shine up.
    Bradley is the man!!

    Just another example of how Bradley sets the tone for the generosity on this site. It could not have gone to a better guy, congrats on your new pipe Jim.

    I live not far from Maurice, which is just south of Grand Coteau, La.

    Would really enjoy meeting The Old Cajun. Maybe over a bowl at Piper's Haven in Lafayette.

    Really nice pipe Fnord. And very kind words. Bradley is certainly the man. I love it when he posts and my wife enjoys the ones I read out to her. The way people act towards each other in this community of pipe smokers makes me proud to admit to being a member.
