I was just looking at my pipe and contemplatig about it. I really hope it is not seen too far and wide. Otherwise I will have to put up with people like Pince Charles,for instance, trying to trade me them worthless crown jewels for it.
Ok, I now have the pipe in my possesion. First observation, How the heckydern did he do it? The pics do not even come close to doing this masterpiece ( and I use that word very judiciously) any kind of justice. There is so much more here that cannot be seen in the photos. One thing that if you look closely are little gripper bars on the lid at each corner, They are a very nice extra. The inlays of the antler pieces is flawless. I have fnished my first tank with it now. This is absolutely not vapeing like a sir, this is vapeing like a Your Highness. Ken I don't think you will ever surpass this. It is a sight to behold................Aw heck just what the thunder am I saying........This is THE PIPE SMITH...........of coures he will surpass this. But as for me & mine, I am one very happy camper.
bookbear: It's rare for someone to stay at a job more than five years these days, I am told. Aside from my first job with Disneyland (3 years), I was with the same employer for 35 years and retired from them. Good luck in the new position!
