    There was a friend of mine who wanted to quit cigarettes and switch to pipe smoking. I informed Dave about this and he was kind enough to send 2 pipes and some tobacco samples. Unfortunately, forwarding company couldn't ship tobacco due to new regulations in Azerbaijan. I received the pipes, added some Aromatics to the box (I gave him some samples of every genre before with an MM Country Gentleman cob, he liked the aromatics most) and gave it to my friend. He said one pipe would be enough for him so asked me to give the second pipe to another friend. You may remember the friend of mine who was a one pipe man (I took pictures of his pipe before for this thread). So I called the other friend, arranged a pipe smoking night with him and gave him his new pipe as well as some Aromatic samples (he is also an Aro smoker). I swear to God, he was about to cry. Here are the pictures:

    Dave thank you very much for your kindness and concern. You are one of those guys who make this community great.

    Very cool! Glad they arrived. We are all about making peoples days. And mine was made seeing those guys smoking them.

    I know what I need, smoke, I can't recall the last time I tasted it....Gandalf in the mines of Moria.

    "we shall have to share pipes, as good friends must at a pinch'....'I keep a treasure or two near my skin, as precious as rings to me. Here's one: my old wooden pipe. And here's another an unused one...He held up a small pipe with a wide flattened bowl, and handed it to Gimli. 'Does that settle the score between us', said Merry. 'Most noble hobbit, it leaves me deep in your debt."

    Well played

    Nowhere in the world will such a brotherly feeling of confidence be experienced as amongst those who sit together smoking their pipes
