    I would take you up on that, but if you are in Canada that would be an expensive proposition. Maybe we can do a trade.

    Good on you David. That was fun, wasn't it? I recently had the opportunity to introduce new tobaccos to a fellow who had started the pipe just a few months ago. He was smoking Captain Black and not happy with it. I'm sure I had as much fun with it as he did. Because of the great generosity of some folks from PSF, I was able to give him some samples across a pretty broad spectrum of styles. Convinced him of the importance of cleaning the pipe and showed him how, along with the very basic do's and don'ts Turned him on to a local place where he can get S Gawith blends for a couple of bucks less than he pays for that Captain Black stuff. He went home a happy man but I'm sure I enjoyed the evening as much as he did.

    So many ways to shine the light in an otherwise dark and dying world. Very thoughtful of you Sir! God Bless

    Good story! Also, my neighbors just moved out, you know, if you're looking for a place. If the lights are on, come have a drink. If nobody's here, leave samples under the mat.

    What a Good Neighbor indeed !

    I used to have an Elderly man stop in my shop to visit
    he would always roll his own - he taught me the one handed rolling method

    it was not long after he sold me his 53 Chevy pick-up that he passed away

    :(
