What's the big deal about Penzance? It's utterly nicotine free. Objectively a thoroughly overrated tobacco. It's the 3 noggin somebody ought to get in on.
The google machine is your friend. Go there. Search for something like penzance on eBay.
Talk about covering shipping!
Lord, you people are weird. I paid 25 bucks for it. The membership are gentlemen and will smoke it. Thus, it's only value is in the enjoyment someone else will get out of a baccy I don't care for. Besides, in my mind it covered the lovely, graceful Cavalier Joe put in that box and I took out of it.
Who's Joe? :)

Heh. Didn't realize it was you that put it in. Sorry about that. Will the pipe survive being smoked unironically, do you think? :clown:

And you're kinda overgrowed for a kid. Also, as a point of order, you have far more gray hairs. :lol:

True, I don't actually know how old you are, I just thought it was funny that you alluded to me being a millennial hipster type. I have been accused of that before and I still don't get it, I just do what I like... granted I prefer many things old versus modern, but I never thought that made me a hipster... what is a hipster anyway? Also I don't think I'm a millennial... not sure where the cut off is for that...

Who said anything about being a millenial? :D. There's always that guy, smoking the unobtanium in an exclusive pipe. You're that guy. Nothing the matter with it and you're certainly not an elitist that I can tell. Sorry if I pinked you at all--that pipe was so far out of your norm I didn't associate it with you and, when I learned, figured you got as a gag.

I'm 39 by the way. I'm really old to TNLP. I'm a kid to FredS. We're all of us just plain wrong according to Rusty.

Hehe, I get it now, you know it's funny, I am that guy aren't I? When I first started smoking, I thought that guy was crazy, I also had a thing for weird pipes, then I went nuts buying pipes and tobacco and then came down on the other side and I've slowly been getting rid of the pipes that I don't care for. I got lucky on some awesome pipes that I Way underpaid for or were gifted to me, so it's worth passing along the ones I don't love, my favorite pipes are the ones friends made and beat up old Dunhills and Ashtons. As for the tobacco, I know what I like, but I love trying new things especially from Pease and C&D, and I have so much tobacco from my college years that I don't buy anything new unless I really want it. And since you can't tell from a message, it doesn't bother me at all that you picked up on my tendencies to go after the rare tobaccos and all that, it's kinda funny lol since I didn't really realize that myself, although I do the same thing with beer... so it makes sense.

I logged on to CPS with one purpose today, and that was to see if our Texas friends were okay. As the next person in line I can tell you with 100% honesty that I could give a crap about the box (or much of anything else either) if any of my friends are hurting.

Ding, ding, ding, give that man a cheroot.

There's only one PO I could get to today and it's out of service. I'll get everything posted as soon as I get to go home (between now and Wednesday morning). The box will go out as soon as I can. Sorry, fellas.

Ok, fellas, after tomorrow I'm back on regular duty. USPS announced they plan to resume services by Friday evening. I'll try to get the box out Saturday.

Thanks for your patience.

Indeed, at the time of my original comment I did not realize that it was with Jim, I was just trying to switch the thread away from Hugo and I's banter and back to it's original content, but in light of the circumstances I'm glad that the end result was Jim's affirmation of wellbeing. After all, what would the world be like without the bow tie king?
