I recently joined this group a couple months back. Since then my experience here has been amazing. I would have to consider myself a new piper. In the past month or so I have received a couple packages of samples from a member on here. Each time I received a heads up they were coming so needless to say I was expecting them. But yesterday I got a surprise in the mail. (The duck tape was a nice touch ) 7 Different kinds a baccy and 2 briars!!!!!! To top it off I also got a real nice letter warning me 1 of the baccys will kick my butt What a great holiday gift. I am floored by all the nice people on here! I pray that one day when my knowledge and collection of pipes build that I will be able to share with y'all and return the kindness. You guys have really become a blessing in my life, thank you.
