    Earlier this morning I grabbed a rather scarce model made by Missouri Meerschaum called the Monogram. The Monogram came with a nice ebonite stem which was marked with an M with a white outline.

    When I got this pipe it was in sad shape and totally unsmokable. I have restored many pipes in the past and also have customized many but the condition that this pipe was in left me unsure if I could salvage it.

    I took my time and some unorthodox methods to repair it but the real satisfaction came when I hade my first smoke in it post restoration.

    As you can tell by how I’m dressed we’re in the 60’s today. I enjoyed some of nearly the last pipe full of Mac Baren Dark Twist Roll Cake, keeping it smokey and enjoying every minute of it.

    I didn't think polyester pile jacket fabric was common until the late 70's.

    Oh, you mean the TEMP is in the 60's. My bad...

    Sure have been enjoying the cob show!
