    Oh dash it! Just my luck, if I fell into a barrel of tits I'd come out sucking my thumb. Why can't we have a pipe show somewhere nice (sorry Nottingham) like on a beach in Ibiza, plenty of birds there lol.

    I think 'Toking Tommy' from Halifax in the back of the group, sadly I don't think he's a contributor here. Apart from him I don't know anyone, although there is a gentleman in the foreground facing away from the camera whose pipe I recognise....it has a very distinctive shape.

    I was actually considering going last year and even the wife was encouraging me to go. I pussy footed around over it, never made a commitment and in a short while after it was cancelled. I've never been to a pipe show either. I would bet good money that I would get the prize for being the first out on the pipe smoking contest.
    The best teachers tell you where to look but not what to see.

    That was 2015, Bill; the stupid regulations about display of tobaccos and indoor smoking means there is now no longer a smoking competition or displays of tobacco - just pipes and accessories for sale. There is of course a lot of outdoor smoking and tobacco sharing and a chance to meet, and make, friends.
