    Have you ever tried to fall in love in a split second? I have - twice, the first time was in my wife and the second time was about a month ago! My wife and I had decided to go away for a long weekend and had booked a room at a hotel in a town in the south-west corner of Zeeland (Denmark) called Slagelse. We had done some research and I had found out that there were two pipe-dealers in the town and further more one of them was one of two dealers in Denmark that had Peterson pipes. I was in seventh heaven!
    Saturday I stood outside the pipe and tobacco store. It didn't of much and I was soooo disappointed. But I walked through the door and was relly surpriced. To the left was the counter and behind that the wall was covered of shelves with tobacco. Another wall had sliding walls with pipes, there must have been 200 pipes or more! Half an hour later I purchesed a Peterson Smooth System 313 and two tins of Rattray's ( a Professional Mixture and an Old Gowrie).
    I met with my wife again but she complained that she hadn't found what she was looking fore. I took a chance and sent her off again. Then I went back to the tobacconist. he looked at me, smiled and said that he might have something that would interest me. He took out a small case, said he had a few Søren Refbjerg pipes. I had never heard of Refbjerg!!! But when he opened the case I fell in love. Right there layed 3 pipes of the utmost beauty. The pipe that cought my in a second was a fantastic Bulldog. I was in love!!!!!
    Well back at the hotel I held the pipe in my hand, admiring it beauty. It was like holding hands with a virgin. I filled her with my favourite tobacco ( W.Ø.Larsen's Navy Flake), lit her and drifted of to wonderland, a dream come true. A three-some, me, Larsen and Refbjerg.
    Back home after a very pleasant weekend I find it wonderfull to be in love with two. My wife first of all and then Refbjerg. That's LOVE.

    Good smoke to all of you

    Good deal, but I say cheat on the second love of your life (not the wife, but the pipe) and sneak around behind the Bulli's back and get the Pete! The Bulli will never need to know;)!

    Sounds like a very productive weekend, you had there, Dane. But, I agree with Zfog....don't hide her (the pipe, that is), show us a picture.

    Soren makes nice pipes. I've liked a lot of what I've seen in both his "Soren" brand and ... gosh, who was he carving for... Larsen maybe? Can't remember off the top of my head.

    Anyway, well done!
