    Fallen off the wagon

    Having told Mark Actman recently I had stopped buying pipes I fell off the wagon big time.
    I am now waiting for these to arrive.

    and tonight I got this Comoy,s 331c golden grain.3 piece c on stem .I was the only bidder less than 50 GBP.From what I can find out Golden Grain was discontinued in 1980 but I dont know when it started.I have read it was one of the better grades

    all seem in good condition requiring only slight restoration work

    I wouldn't say you've fallen off the wagon, Paul. Not at all! You've stepped off in style, mate!
    The Canadian & Zulu are beauty's, impossible to resist! Congratulations & enjoy.

    All very impressive pipes, Paul. Congrats! I particularly like the Comoy's.

    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.

    Great pipes, Paul! Congrats!

    One thing that I've learned in my time as a pipe smoker is that as long as you are smoking a pipe you are also buying pipes. No exceptions. Best to accept the reality of it.

    Congratulations on falling off. Those three are beauties; especially the Comoy's.

    your right Simon,the thing was all of the pipes were reasonably priced ,less than 60 GBP each which made them even more tempting.I have a Dunhill ES Canadian which I am finding I am smoking more and more and when I saw the Charatans one I thought why not and that was the beginning of the end.
    I am a lover of old britwood and so I put down a bid on the others and was surprised when I won with only 3 other bids on the Zulu and none on the Comoy,s (what have I missed?)

    I also have come to that conclusion Anthony,I have about 40 pipes only, but think why do I need more.Then I see something I like and bam another one in the rack
