    A friend of mine on the railroad, after hearing that I was a pipe smoker, told me he wanted to start.

    So I made a beginners package for him and will be sending it out today.

    Just something to get him started. With a note that included a few starter tips.

    Though I no longer smoke my Dr Grabows, they are the pipes I started with, and it hooked me for life. I thought about getting him a corncob too, but I'll just let him figure that one out first. The tamper I made myself, and I think he'll like the excaliburley. I created that blend years ago and everyone loves the smell.

    A generous gift. I admire that tamper! Good work.

    I wish someone had turned me on to the Stokkebye Luxury Navy Flake/Bullseye line much earlier in my piping career. It took me far too long to stumble across them and they were the kind of tobacco I could see immediately hooking a new smoker. Good on you for putting that together for a friend.

    Well done!

    Bullseye may hook some, but my experience was different. Burlington Arcade, no longer made. English with Latakia and Perique.

    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.

    Well done! That's how we keep our ranks filled. You got me feeling guilty that I've not done that.

    I figured, that someone like him, wasn't just going to go out and look for a pipe. So I forced him into it. Now he has no choice.
