Dennis' Charatan - All's Well That Ends Well Thank Goodness!!!
From Dennis:
My dear friends,
Well, this is a first and I am a bit embarrassed about raising an alarm now, but I did not know the following. This is the strangest things to ever happen to me with pipes.
I received a box in the mail today with a POB return address. I opened it and to my utter astonishment, there was the pipe that I thought was stolen. There was a note that said that this person had picked up the pipe to further examine it and to show it to a friend. He got into some conversations and laid the pipe on his table and then forgot about it. He discovered it when he packed up but saw that I had already left the show. He said that he was too embarrassed to tell anyone but his friend so on Monday, 3/14 he packed up the pipe and mailed it to me. I just received it today, Thursday, 3/17. He said in an enclosed note that he wants to remain anonymous to “forgo humiliation and ridicule from others for being an idiot”, his words. I was in such a hurry to catch my plane that I scooped up my pipes and descriptor cards and did not notice the pipe was missing until I got home. You can imagine how stupid I feel about not being fore careful when I pack up my pipes.
I apologize for the inconvenience I put my dear pipe smoking friends to on this matter but if the pipe was truly stolen, I wanted to make it risky for anyone to dispose of the pipe. I want to thank my pipe friends for any effort exerted in my behalf. I have been touched by the support I received from my fellow briar friars. They are a cadre of truly honorable men and women.

Yeah, boy. I'm with Anthony.
There's larceny everywhere and pipe shows are not immune. But, I'm so glad this ended well for Dennis, and that the alleged perp merely had a red faced, senior moment with the integrity to own up.

I figured there was a mixup somewhere. Not that theft can't happen in the community, but it is a mistake as often as it is deceit.

You guys are overlooking the possibility that the thief is actually a James Bond Villain class baddie, and highjacked Dennis's accounts across the Net to put everyone off his trail while he escapes to his secret island fortress in a convertible jet plane/submarine.
Much more likely than an end-of-show packing mix-up if you ask me.
