  • That was fun! I’m sorry I left the ZOOM early. What a great bunch of people.
    I think that this is probably one of the few “up-sides” of the pandemic lock down.
    This virtual “pipe club” meeting, with people who you might get to see for only a brief time at the various Pipe Shows during a normal year, has become a highlight of our weekends. It’s brothers and sisters of the briar (Silver Gray and Mary McNiel often join in) talkin’ pipes, tobacco, a wide range of other stuff, and often, utter bullshit.
    I’m glad you enjoyed Mark Rubin and the Panorama Jazz Band. Phil Keaggy, as always, was terrific.
    I don’t have to worry about my socks, my wife turns them inside out, often with me still in them.

    • I was sorry you left early too, Dino. I think Brian didn’t give us a heads-up for fear we’d all leave. I’m sure you would have had some great stuff to add, Dino. It was really quite fun to have the Zoom moderated for 40 minutes. I probably won’t be there this week as our family Christmas celebration starts at 2:30 Central, although last week the meeting didn’t actually end until past 10 pm! After I had left the meeting for dinner, I had left my laptop plugged-in in the garage so that I didn’t have to transfer the host role to anyone else. So, I padded into the garage in my PJs just before bedtime to bring it inside, knowing the meeting would be over. Nope! Four or five guys were still chatting away.

  • Excellent show! This was most enjoyable. Getting to see more of these guys personalities was most interesting. This would be a great pipe club to be a part of. I would love to hear more of their discussions about tobacco, pipes, the culture, etc. Thank you for allowing us to step into this group for a few minutes.
    I would point out that with all this fine year has brought most of us, any day we wake up and get to light up is a special time for celebration. Bring out those pipes and tabacco. Don’t wait. We can’t imagine how challenging 2021 will be.


  • This week’s show was terrific. I’d be happy to hear this group ramble on anytime. Also enjoyed the music. Never heard that Hanukah song – and I’ve heard plenty – and I think it is right up there with the best (actually doesn’t take much.) The Silent night rendition was also impressive.

    Going back to last week, I wanted to thank you for taking my question to Jeg Gracik. I’m still wondering if there is a verifiable amount of time that the average briar pipe dries out. Just one of the mysteries of pipe smoking, I guess.

  • P.S. – I had the same experience as Fred with Rustica but was lucky enough to stop smoking before it hit the point of no return.

  • The show was extremely good. I enjoyed the pipe parts segment though I don’t have any pipes that consider as “Occasion” pipes. I know or know of most of the people you interviewed. They are a wonderful group of guys. I can understand about Fred’s reaction to HH Rustica. My stomach got a little queasy on the last fourth of the bowl. Set it aside until my stomach calmed down. After that I didn’t try any unless I had a full stomach and then I was okay. I have a habit of not saying much at pipe shows so most of the guys wouldn’t know me. Music was okay but nothing special.
