    I'm not working this week and Jenifer and I went to McCaysville Georgia [ 7 miles away ] to go to a junktique shop we like . I found a cool fisherman dude and 4 pipes that are quite nice

    Here they are as a group before I cleaned them out

    After 10 mis of buffing they look like this

    Why oh why do I live in the middle of the desert and have no opportunity to go to antique/junk shops. I am so jealous.:(

    GREAT FIND......Congratulations.

    Panel pipes are some of my favorites. Can't believe I don't own one yet. Great find, Ruff! :thu:

    I think she has her eye on the smallish one .. which is why I smoked it first before she grabs it :beck:
    The weather here has gotten pretty bad ... it will be a miracle if I don't loose power . Tornado watch in effect .. Lovely

    Nice score Mayor. The cleanup made them look like new pipes.

    I hope you made it through that storm OK. By the time it reached Ohio it was just rain showers. Others in the South have not been so fortunate.

    We did good last night , weather wise . No destruction at the Ruffino Farm , thankfully :th1:The full bent pipe has a clog at he opening at the bottom of the bowl .. once I get it clear it'll be the next one I smoke .. it's very light and the way it's carved makes the smooth part look like a flame around it . I dont own full bents ... but now I do and I'm looking forward to lighting her up ! These pipes were from the same individual and the full bent had the most cake . It's super comfortable to clench
