    I was curious what paying for a more expensive pipe gets you and, hell, my birthday is coming up in a month or so:

    Ardor Urano bent bulldog. I really dig the shape and the rustication. It feels nice to hold. Was also surprised at how light it is for being pretty large. And that is a BIG bowl.

    This is my last order for the year. I promise. If not the kids are really not going to like Santa.

    Bought some small mason jars, and masking tape for labels, to keep my regular tobies in. Finally got sick of plastic bags, cleared out some space for the jars, and everything plays nice now. Jars and tins from here on out!

    I was just looking .... I swear!! I just wanted to see all the beautiful pipes and designs out there and stumbled on this one. I kept going back.... day after day. Finally, about 5 minutes ago, I pulled the trigger. I LOVE the look of this pipe. Absolutely love it. In my newbness I'm not sure of the maker and such but it really doesn't matter to me, I had to have it. *sigh* I already had G.A.S. .... now I have a new acronym to deal with ( and explain to the lovely Grizette :D )If it ships today I'll have it filled and smoked on Sunday.

    I got some goodies today, myself.

    A gourd calabash. I'm not sure if the bowl is press meer or something else. Maybe some sort of porcelain. It has a crack on one side, but it doesn't appear to go all the way through. I had Walker Briar Works make a new stem and it's quite nice.

    I also made a stand for it with a piece of creased strop leather I had (no good for stropping, so why not for this?)

    Then I got this little guy.

    Dunhill Bruyere 32 Group 1 1964
    A perfect size for when it's 15 below! I've included another pipe and the lighter for some size perspective. It's small, but it's really a beauty.

    Solved an ol' case of the TAD. Also, picked up (and cleaned up) a London made Biltmore Sandblast. I'm set for a good while...I think.

    Newb question alert!!!

    That twist baccy, you chop it yourself? So far the 4 tobaccos I've bought have all been from a jar and put into a plastic bag chopped up already ( chiffonade style for lack of proper term knowledge. )

    A friend owns a B&M.
    Since the Vegas show he's been "motivated" to move a few pipes.
    So we did a trade. I gave him a '77 Dunhill billiard and he gave me a 2000 Radice Bark (twin-bore, oil cured, faux bamboo [briar] shank).

    [​IMG]

    With that completed, we had a cigar and chatted for a bit yesterday.
    As I was leaving the shop he handed me this, and said Happy Birthday Dave (*he knew I'd been eyeballing this pipe for some time).

    GG Castello Bulldog (*my dog is bigger than yours):

    Look at it mock my "little" Sas (which is huge):

    Wow, WOw, WOW! That is a beautiful castello, and a bulldog shape to boot! I can see why you've been giving it the eye. Probably should keep that away from JPBerg...

    That's a secksy looking Castello Spill, but I still think your BST is secksier!

    Well, I guess that opinion is biased since I'm not a huge fan of smooth finishes ;)

    I'd call it a tomato, but it's your pipe, so you can call it whatever you want. :D

    Grizette made a rather astute observation about my newest pipe and suggested I might be stuck in a rut. I, however have turned it to my advantage and have come up with a new acronym! I do not have P.A.D. I have B.A.A.D. ( or IT baad ... time will tell :D ) The Stanwell ( I read up on em and feel good about my purchase! WOO HOO although I still would have bought it even if it was crackler jacks material... DAT PIPE! ) is a complete match to my current daily thumper. ( not the complete 19 year old diva that MUST be in every picture ) [​IMG]

    So, it is a bass accessory. I have Bass Accessory Acquisition Disorder.
