The Aloha State!
7pm my time, so @jiminks more Birthday shout outs coming your way! ?

Some of us don’t realize, that in order to take care and feed feral cats, we have to also teach them, for the kindness they’ve been shown, they need to learn to give back to the community.

I found another one of your videos online, showing some of the feral cats you’ve trained to be responsible cat citizens and give back to their community, for the love they’ve received. ? ❤️

Well done job Jim training these cats! :col:

Good evening. After a few days without showing up around here, for the death of a relative of my wife. I go back to smoking after a few days of anguish and pain. A first cousin of my wife died of cancer. I was only 43 years old......a lovely woman...God bless his soul......I'm smoking now with. Capstan Blue, in a corn cob General....
My condolences, that’s far too young for anyone to go. ?

Half way through this bowl of Wilke No. 515 in a smooth dark brown medium bend 2021 Peterson POTY 4AB No. 45/500 military mount with a silver cap and an acrylic black tapered AB stem. This was the blend Basil Rathbone smoked.

A belated happy birthday Jim, may you see as many more years as you have pipes. I think that would actually make you immortal though ?.

Hey now, don’t put down the Grabow down, LOL just kidding. :)

I love my 1967-1969, Commodore 65 Zulu with a vulcanite stem, metal screw-in tenon, there was no stinger when I bought it.

This thing is a beast, absolutely amazing, rivaling some of the finest in pipes, not trying to toot my own horn, just saying.

So if you have a thing for Dr. Grabow, not sure what you know, be on the look out for the Estates.

I believe the Commodore was Dr Grabow ‘s finest pipe, I read a interview with a chap that worked for them back in the day and he said they sourced their briar from the same place as all the high end pipe makers. In fact there’s a particular Commodore that I’m dying to find, it’s a rare shape and I won’t mention what it is because I don’t want any extra competition if one shows up on eBay ?
