  • HI Brian,
    Neat discussion on briar and Comoy pipes. But then again, it was from the Comoy point of view.
    I don’t think I know James Foster. His road to pipes is like so many others. The NOLA pipe show sounds like it will be fun. The pipetool app sounds like it is way much too organized to be used by a fuddy duddy like me.
    Music – BB King all evening was great. The Thrill is Gone is the best.
    Good show.

  • Brian, Congrats to your daughter.
    Good to hear about the upcoming New Orleans pipe show. I have already booked a room and in the planning stages for the trip. I’m stoked as this will be my first “big time” show.
    James aka(pylorns) interview was interesting and his family pipe smoking history is something I wished I’d had coming into the hobby.
    RIP BB we shall miss you.

  • I recently visited NOLA and met some wonderful people at the New Orleans Pipe Club meeting last tuesday (May 19th). I don’t know if it was the humidity, but tobacco tasted extra special in New Orleans. I enjoyed walking around the streets of the French Quarter while smoking my pipe. I am definitely going to try to fit the New Orleans Pipe Show into my plans for October.
    The Pipe Tool sounds like a great idea! Will be signing up for it today.
    I enjoyed the BB King music. I listened to your pipe show with my early morning pipe. It was a great start to my day. Thanks Brian!

  • Great discussion on the old briar and Comoy pipes in particular.
    I have met James a couple of times and he is a doer. He is moving the Austin Pipe Club in a good direction. I can’t figure out whether he is just helping the NOLA guys or is one of the main guys behind that show. Whichever it is he will be a great help to that show.
    The music was pleasant. The story behind Lucille was simply wonderful. We do lament the passing of B.B. King.
