    As I've moved into my middle ages, more and more I appreciate the wisdom and experience shared to me by those who are older. I wouldn't be the man I am today without all I've learned from folks who've been there and done that and paved the way for me.

    So I want to do a giveaway in honor of all those older folks who've helped me along the way.

    I'm giving away a pretty nice older pipe that I'm confident dates back to one of two or three years. Post your birth year here and the first person who was born in one of those years will win it. No restrictions on where I'll ship this pipe.

    I'll post a photo of the pipe after a winner is found. (There will also be some nice tobacco sent along as well!)

    And this is now officially the fastest contest ever as we have a first post winner! The pipe I have is a Peterson Sterling that has a block Made in Ireland stamp -
    From the Peterson Pipe Connoisseur - Later they stamped their pipes with "Made in Ireland" in a circle format (1945?-1947?) and still later with "Made in Ireland" in a block format (1947?-1949).

    YAPPG, send me your Address and let me know what type of tobacco you like and I'll get this into the mail Monday!

    Grats on that pipe! Very nice. In honor of your birthday, let me offer these words of wisdom from the honorable Jim Carrey:
    "It's true that old people, although slow and dangerous behind the wheel, can still serve a purpose. Now don't you go dying on me!"
