    One of my more rambling posts- I'm sitting here on Thursday trying to figure out why I'm totally worn out...Tracking back to the weekend, I spent most of my time smoking ribs and starting a couple of pipes. Then, the usual office madness on Monday while trying to finish the pipes in between phone calls...Then it was a 4 hour drive to the coast to inspect a 57' Riviera that we are financing for a client in Puerto Rico (all in Spanish of course)...and driving back yesterday...and here I am today finishing the last of the pipes...with a glass of wine in hand thinking what a great week! Can't wait to do it again...:)
    So first- the ribs- Smoked for 4 hours in the Big Green Egg

    Next the pipes- One I call "Diablito"- little devil... a takeoff on a very small Devil Anse with Fossil Walrus tooth. The other pipe was a request for a Canadian measuring only 5.25"...Thought they came out rather nice...






    ...and finally the boat...accompanied by my lovely wife Greta who most of you have met at pipe shows...

    Holy hay! Sounds like a great bunch of reasons to be tired.

    I like this part the best:

    Really a beautiful boat- this one's headed south to Fajardo, PR... We usually spend a week every month working in Puerto Rico- one of our favorite places...

    Wow Zack those pipes, boat and wife all look amazing.

    I'd be afraid to ask what a boat like that runs. Lol

    Don, the ribs run $5.99 a pound, the boat runs $2.1m and 28 knots, and Greta is PRICELESS!!

    Amazing week, nice pix

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

    I love the beveled, polished bowl top.
    2.1m??? Wow. That's a nice commission!
    Can that sail the open water to Puerto Rico? Who delivers it?

    "I spent most of my time smoking ribs..."

    Do they require drying, and are they hard to keep lit?

    Love Me, Love My Pipe

    We get a small slice of that pie...but it's very nice...delivery on the Riviera is usually a run down to PR at 20 knots- They stop for fuel and run slower at night. Figure 3 days total. I have a Captains license and always offer to fill in as crew...This one has a nice option- a $88,000 Seakeeper gyro stabilizer...makes for a nice ride...

    I keep them wet and smoky...:)

    Hilarious!

    The fossilized walrus tooth is a superb touch.
