    The result of a visit to TDPS

    Back from my trip to TDPS, where I just wanted a couple of packs of pipecleaners. Or so I thought, but of course I got carried away.
    A reg. numbered Stanwell shape 49 and two tobaccos I haven't smoked before.

    Did you remember the pipe cleaners Jesper? Handsome pipe that is.

    Thanks very much, Thomas. As a matter of fact, I did, but might just as easily have forgotten them in the excitement, and I can't afford to go back tomorrow to get them. TDPS has other nice Stanwells I want.

    I know the ones you mean, because I want them too!! (Cuttys yes?) but I'm being strong & resisting.
    In fact, I very nearly bought the pipe you got today! Lol but bought my little Danish pipe box instead. Beautiful looking pipe & congratulations Jesper. Commonwealth is a great tobacco as well. It's what I'd call a 'grower'. The first couple of bowls I didn't think much of it, by the time I neared the end of the tin, I absolutely loved it. I think I'm right in saying its one of their oldest blends too. Good show all round I'd say Jesper. You should go there more often.
    St. Bruno simply satisfies!

    Thanks very much, Simon and you are so right... Of course the Cuttys..! and the Lovat (no. 18), the oval-shanked Billard and the no. 176. Blimey, it never stops.
    I could go back there tomorrow but for one small fact. DW will most certainly inflict GBH on my person and that does not facilitate pipesmoking at all.
    You did great with your little Danish pipe box; a bunch of beauties.
    I am really looking forward to 'Commonwealth', I love Latakia and back in the 80s, I smoked it pure and even rolled cigarettes with it. They looked strange but tasted great.

    Thanks very much, Joe. I can understand that. TDPS is a great shop all the way round. Their knowledge of the pipes and tobaccos they sell, is outstanding.

    A very fine indeed, Jesper! I especially like the combination of the finish and shape.

    After all of the statistics and reports are finished with, I've come to the conclusion that the only real danger of smoking a pipe is being interrupted.

    Thanks very much, Dave and Russ.
    As you wrote yourself, Dave: "Gotta love those old Stanwells", and indeed I do.
    You're absolutely right, Russ, the pipe has an elegant flow to it, I think;
    it's very light, comfortable to hold and a very nice sandblasting to look at.
