I must say, I have the coolest Mom ever! Going through economic down times, my mom was sorry to see me prep about a half dozen or so pipes to be listed on ebay in the near future. Seeing I didn't have any particular attachment to any, not that big of a deal, but I got a sympathy gift that should be arriving Monday!

And bringing up the rear of the Boswell Collection is (and the second time I managed to grab a pipe from the Thursday Boswell "lottery" lol:

Your mom sure thinks highly of ya Paul. Of course, that's what moms do (-:

Most of the Boswell "swirls" have always struck me as ugly, no other way to say it. But this particular one is really nice.

Um... you did remember your mother on Mother's Day.... riiight?

hahaha, sorry Mark. Ironically when I posted that, my first though was "Mark's gonna be jealous". Though once things settle down a bit for me, there is one Boswell that may leave the collection...sorry, tis not the poker. If/when it's time to go, I'll let you be the first to know, since if I sell it, it'll only be sold to be replaced by another one.

A lot of the ones I have seen, I didn't like...unlike OTD, I didn't think they were ugly, but at the time, they were something I would've never have seen myself purchasing...saw a few in the store, I was swayed a lil' bit...but ya'll know how a pipe can scream your name and this one was. And heck, if my mom likes it, it's good enough for me :) !

But heck, even if you don't like the swirls, he's an immensely talented carver to make up these swirls :) !

I'm with you Brian, there were several in the store when we all met there a while back...none of which really caught my eye at the time. I mean they looked good, but I didn't like the way the felt in the hand. But ironically I'm becoming more of a "clencher" as of late

I don't know if this is one of the swirls that was in the store when I was there or if it's new, but as I was shopping this one and and another one really caught my eye.

And oh-yeah, I remembered mom's day...heck around here it's mom's day everyday :) !


Very nice Paul, good on Paul's Mom!

Thanks Pat :) !! I hate the waiting..grrrr. Something about being only 90 minutes away and having to wait till Monday for it to arrive...lol.
