    I'm writing this to make you guys jealous, evil man that I am! My wife took a three day vacation with her mom and my mom to Myrtle Beach, SC. On her way home, she stopped by Smoking Pipes and as I just found out, she had an order I had written down, but had not filled, and placed the order at the store. She got them to mail it so I'd avoid sales tax and get free shipping, too. Now, that's a good woman!

    Here's what she ordered for me: One pound bag of Limerick, 3 bags of Dorchester, 2 tins each of C&D Burley Flake 1-3, one pouch of Half and Half, 4 ounces of Three Friars, 2 tins of Dunbar, 1 tin of Wessex Burley Slices, 1 tin of Haunted Bookshop and one tin of JackKnife Plug. Plus an egg shaped MM cob. She remembered me saying I needed another cob, since I only have 2. She even asked them if they had Edgeworth Ready Rubbed, Stonehaven, and Balkan Sobranie, which they didn't, but she remembered hearing me talk about them.

    And it's not even my birthday! I believe I'll keep her around!

    (Hope I didn't scare everyone else off ... apparently my name here is scary to some.)

    You sir, are one lucky piper.
    If I can get my girlfriend to do that, I'll marry her right now. :D

    Only if the marrying part is left out, I feel she might cry if I didn't follow through.;)

    PipeWife said,
    My wife got a kick out of your response. She also appreciated the nice words about her, for which I also thank everyone here. Memo to rlucas: My wife sez she can handle being second place to pipe tobacco, but that dog of yours is a real winner. And I agree!

    Lol I think I started off in the right foot, I started this hobby being single, now to find someone that want to be with me and handle all my odd hobbies.

    Gunslinger,

    I know this probably sounds like bragging, but we've been married 23 years and some people still say we look like newlyweds when we're together. I wanted to joke and say I have to treat her good or ELSE, but in reality, it's very easy to be good to her. I married a really great lady.

    One of the reasons I said this would be entertaining is because hubby has said I pick out the best tobaccos for him when I do a big this-n-that TAD order. The other amusing part was more recent, where he claims I "enabled" a good-sized tobacco order by not telling him "No" or even to wait ... he had a newly-stocked tin of C&D Autumn Evening in the cart for me!
