Just wondering... Does anyone else have that one pipe in their collection that teeters on the edge of being excommunicated from the club, for whatever reason, poor design, aesthetics, slurppy, etc. One that, when you look at your collection, sticks out like some distant relative who shows up uninvited to your backyard bbq, all smelly and disheveled.... I have an unmarked Italian pipe, that I'm sure at one time was a beautiful pipe, and I can't even remember how I obtained it. I'm certain it was part of a lot, purchase. I've taken it out of my collection and threw it into a drawer several times only to return it. It was almost to the point where I was going to dig up an old REM cd, the one with the *everybody hurts* trak, and drive to the bridge in the middle of the night to toss it to its end... But still...I hang on to it. I did a salt treatment to it last night. At least now it smells better.
