sterday was a heckuva day for me in the USPS department. My shipment from House of Calabash got here quite quickly and I'm eager to start trying some of these blends. Everything on Steve's website sounds brilliant, and he was a fantastic guy to chat with on the phone!

1.5 oz Ancient Burley (50 yr)
1 oz For Meerschaums Only
1 oz Young Master

The real highlight of the day, though, was heading to the post office to pick up a big box waiting for me -- A gentleman on another forum decided that he needed to take some time off from pipes because of his family. Rather than boxing them up for a while, he decided to sell the lot and I took him up on it. Out of the 50 pipes, I'll probably keep a half dozen for myself and then work on re-home-ing the rest.

For the moment, though, off to try this 50 yr burley.

Easy enough! I had company most of yesterday and have only unwrapped four pipes so far. Here's everything, though.

Alrighty, here's the most of it at least. Not pictured are six or so pipes in need of some refurb work and six Carey Magic Inch pipes.
