    So I woke up yesterday and found my two very beautiful FLN pipes at my doorstep. As if that wasnt good enough news, my girlfriend and I went out and used her tax money to buy our first, very nice 50' LED TV. On our way home, I got an email saying that my tax money had come in, so what was the first thing that I did? Oh yeah. Pipesandcigars.com just got a good bit of my money. I sprung for a nice new Savinelli EX Billiard and one each of the following tins:

    GL Pease Charring Cross
    GL Pease Navigator
    GL Pease Sextant
    GL Pease Odyssey
    GL Pease Westminster
    Erik Stokkebye 1931
    Erik Stokkebye 1855
    Sam Gawith FVF (They had some in stock! Score!)
    Captain Earles Nightwatch
    Captain Earles Stimulus Package
    Solani 633
    Fribourg and Treyer Vintage

    I have also committed to owning my first Boswell pipe as soon as they update their site on Thursday. I have wanted a Boswell for a long time and finally have the money to own one.

    Combine this with the Wessex Brigade Campaign Dark Flake I have coming from a very generous forum member along with some HH Mature Virginia from Zonomo, I think I've got it made. Time to light up a bowl and watch the big screen. Fellas, life is good

    I almost have my TAD list completely knocked out. The only thing I am missing are four tins of Dan tobacco, none of which I can find in stock at any of the big retailers at the moment.

    Congrats on the new tv, and nice hall. Good luck on getting that Boswell! I hear they sell fast.

    I have heard tell from people on the forums that what they list on their site isnt all that tehy have available in the shop. I am going to look at the website on Thursday and if I find something I like that they have sold already, I have been led to believe they can try to find me something similar, so fingers crossed.

    When my refund arrives I plan on adding to my cellar, but a big chunk is going to purchase a new table saw for the shop. Hopefully it will generate more income to buy more TAD/PAD. A vicious, yet wonderful circle isn't it.

    Great haul! You're going to be in tobacco heaven when it arrives.

    Be sure to let me know what you think of the Fribourg & Treyer Vintage, so far it's my favorite Virginia, mostly because it's the only one I've tried.

    Nice order! Sure you didn't forget anything? You're going to love the TV. This year we're are going 3D, looking forward to that.
