    I finally ran it through Google translator. It means "the duck that lays the golden egg". Now the little duck heads that stick up on most of their pipes make more sense. The reason I like the Ventura line more is because the duck head is embossed on it like a proper stem. Their shapes are whimsical enough as it is. I don't need a silver duck watching me smoke.

    So, last night my wife showed me what I bought her for Christmas. Then, she tells me that I need to spend a little more on "some pipe stuff" to balance the scales, so to speak. I did just that. My max bid was $70.

    Problem is, this was one of those "Well, if I get it for that, it's a steal" bids. My "real" bids are still a few days away from ending. Hopefully at least one of them will be too low. Otherwise, I've tipped the scale back to my side.

    Mike, those are both nice! I was inspired by your self gifting, so ordered a Pete last night.

    Both are great looking pipes, congrats. I have and Autograph 4 that is from the 70's and it smokes like a champ. I think they are one of the best values on the estate market.

    Congrats. All I ever get from my wife is a swift kick in the rump. I gotta admit part of the reason for her attitude might be the farm tractor I got her for our anniversary.
