    I got a few new pipes for my birthday this past Monday. I don't normally post pics of my new pipes, but I'm excited about these two.

    The first is a Milano Churchwarden (a basket of some kind, apparently). I know they're cheesy, but dang it, I like the way they look.

    The other is a Wessex Standard. Both of these are excellent smokers so far, and as I rarely get new pipes other than cobs, I'm ecstatic.

    The bow tie is thrown in there because that's just my thing.

    I personally wish more folks would post pictures of their pipes! Seems many feel as you do that they may not be worthy of posting. Ain't so! Enjoyed see the pipes and reading the story! Picture are always better than words even the Egyptians knew that!:)

    Happy B-Day!:bday:

    Not my Birthday but I just picked up a MM Gentleman. It's the second pipe I've smoked.

    I really didn't understand how much of a difference that Pipes can make. But there is a huge change in smoke, draw, flavor, and most importantly coolness from the Gentleman to the Legend which was my first pipe. My Birthday is September and I plan on getting a MM Freehand. Maybe by Christmas I'll be ready for my first Briar....

    Happy Birthday.
    Were they a gift from you to you or did someone get them for you?

    The pipes are tasteful....the bow tie, uh, not so much! :) (My eyes, my eyes!)

    Nice haul, regardless!

    Strike one: bow tie. Strike two: it's plaid. I think the pipes are your saving grace. Happy Birthday!

    It's okay, guys... not just anyone can pull off a bow tie. Your jealousies are forgiven! :) Especially you, Jeff.

    The 'Warden I bought... the other was a gift from my sister.
