I drool over this one, but buying it would be the height of irresponsibility.

Mannnnn. I found this today while perusing, which is never a good thing.

I usually do not like Dunhills, but this one is a birth year and in a shape I kind of dig:

$199 - http://www.ebay.com/itm/1986-Dunhill-31 ... SwwbdWHPfk

Sometimes it doesn't pay to be a missionary.

It would be a very long post if I put pictures of the pipes that I wanted to buy in the last week. It's a dilemma: if one is serious about pipe smoking, then he likes to look at and study pipes. And though pipes bear the looking, it is the looking paired with the possibility of buying that adds that exciting buzz. If one looks and thinks he might buy but is deceiving himself about his available funds, then when he has a pipe in his sights and is about to pull the credit card trigger, he must endure having gone to the brink of the precipice that forced him to abandon the hunt.

Pricy pipes: a tricky business. Very pricy pipes: quite usually massive deception.

We're on different ends of the spectrum. I like to occasionally look at pipes, but I love the ones I have. PAD is dormant. I'm happy with that.

Yeah, this is my thinking. However, when one does catch the eye, I plan on posting it here so JimVH can buy it before I succumb to its siren song.

I have bought all these specimens and are now selling them at ridiculously high prices on the Pan-Asian market. Am making a killing. Shipping is an additional 20% on top of selling price ('cause someone will ask).

Well, while you are waiting, your lovely wife could get you this pipe to proudly display. Then, when you find yer nekkid mermaid, you can hide that in the shop.
