    Cheers, Paul! I was wondering about the age myself. Now I know.

    Seen as I'm a nosey bugger I'm wondering how many pipes you have in your collection now?
    Good question! Unfortunately I don't know the answer. I suspect when I get round to counting them, I'll have to take a long hard look at myself! In my defence, they're ALL very nice.

    Do not count them, Simon. When I counted my unsmoked stock I realized that something was wrong with my brain. It is better to live without knowing that.

    Hmmm ….I know how many pipes I have. Must mean I don't have enough.

    Wise words, jorgen! Beautifully put, Shakespearean even. In fact, reminds me of the line from the bard himself.

    Good looking pipes the both of them. That 263 really pops for me. Love Canadians and lumbermans (lumbermen?).

    Merry Christmas, Simon.
