    Thank you very much, Simon.
    I once read a definition of a gentleman: "A gentleman is one who always takes his pipe out of his mouth, before he hits his wife".
    I've never, ever hit a woman and should I ever hit DW, it'll be in self-defense.

    The money is better, but there's a limit as how much we OAPs are allowed to work, before they cut our pension.

    Is a sin they use labels instead of stamps nowdays, otherwise you coudl start a stamps collection as well.
    Thanks very much, Ludwig.
    Don't you get me started on collecting stamps as well. DW will throw a tantrum.

    Thanks very much, Anthony.
    The funny thing is, that the cross grain on the other side, is nothing write home about and some of the bowl-front is covered in strange-looking, beady little bird's eyes.

    It's still nice across the front. Hardcastle was pretty far down the briar food chain. So, you have to take the good with the bad and look for the silver linings.

    That's good point on the insurance. I really don't know if mine are covered by our home policy. It also brings to mind how my estate will deal with them? In any case I look forward to the pics!!

    I always look for the silver linings, but they always turn out to be made from tin foil.

    Good question about the home policy covering. I haven't the faintest idea if our covers collections of any sort, but it must state it somewhere in the papers, we got.
    I do not have any family left; I'm the last one on the bench and so I've arranged for my collection to go to my great pipe-restorer pipe friend. He sold me most of them anyway. One pipe I'll want to take with me; a little Corsica Elite, which was given to my father in 1936.
    I'm going to be cremated, so it'll be our last firing-up together.

    Now I don't have an excuse not to take the pictures, so...
    Be prepared to be bored.

    I like the Jeantet. I like the shape and I have heard good things about Jeantet, without ever seeing one in reality.

    Instead of giving your pipes to your original source, why don't you simply send 10 pipes at random to the first people from this forum who send you a PM shortly before you are cremated??? They would probably be very happy, especially if they have been ogling your pictures for the decades that I hope you will continue to be active.
