    hey fellas hope your well.

    So after yesterdays jaunt to the emergency room, my PAD and TAD order arrived today :D
    so here it is......
    [​IMG]

    I havent smoked it yet but it feels a little lighter than the falcon, and im sure its going to be just as good as the falcon.

    The bowls in front of the box are the ones i was given by a good friend, all seven are completely unsmoked.
    from left to right....
    smooth bull dog, rusticated bull dog, rusticated dublin, smooth dublin, rusticated genoa, smooth dover, rusticated billiard.
    an the bowl on the pipe is a rusticated algiers.

    the tobacco i forgot to add it to the picture, but it is stokkebyes irish slices, its aroma is kind of something like st bruno, and the flakes are HUGE, they were about an inch across and 6 inches in length, but ive rubbed them all out as im useless at smoking flakes by the fold and stuff method.

    So thats me happy now :D although still in pain.

    happy days and happy smoking guys.

    yup sure is rusty, alco universal, got given the bowls in front of the box had my eye on one on ebay and got sniped with seconds to go.
    So i ordered one off james barbers tobacconists as it seems to be the only place in the uk that actually sells them.

    i was putting something back in my cupboard and knocked something out i jerked quick and when i went to bend down to pick it up i got a propperly bad pain in my shoulder and could hardly breathe, went to emergency room and turns out i tore a muscle in my shoulder.

    odd thing is i was lugging an oil filled radiator into my fiancees attic on saturday and no problem

    Ahh... probably strained the muscle lugging around the radiator, and the quick jerk was the straw that broke the camel's back, so to speak.

    Well, glad you're OK and now you have a new toy to play with while you recuperate. Plus those spiders hidden in the packaging should keep you on your toes...
