I've only met two members and sweetandsour is the only one of those still here. Darned if we didn't forget to take a pic.






By the way, Photobucket's changes have taken a terrible toll on this thread.

Those numb skulls at Photobucket ruined a lot of forums. I've copied all my photos from photobucket and uploaded them to imagur. I now keep a local folder backup as well. Live and learn, I guess. Still doesn't help with the existing links though.

We need to remedy the lack of a pic. BTW, where is the "strong irish" guy now, I wonder.

ID, I was thinking that one of our wives took a pic, but darned if I can locate it.

I think Bloodhound brings my real-life meet-up count to 18. And I've never been to the Chicago pipe show. Of course a good number of those guys are no longer active here. I'm sure that has nothing to do with meeting me.
That's an interesting stat I've never figured out...
Chip, Andrew, B-Rad, Gregor, Gregor's friend (I can't remember his screen name), Crosby, Chuck (chksrks?), Jeff (J-Alan), Slowtoke, N8, 7formy1911, Dennisthemenace, Steverino, twoxseven, jonno, JMG, dLibbon, Del, Nos, Spyderweb, SweetandSour, coco, Piper, Joshooooooooowah, Skip, Jroooooooog, DepartedLight, ...

So that's 27, but I'm absolutely certain I'm forgetting someone or someones.
I think mine is around 12-13, but I must admit I've forgotten a few of their CPS names and only remember their real names. Go figure.

I just checked my phone and I found it! I haven't solved the Photobucket thing yet so I don't have a way to post it. Someday.

Or send it to me and I'll throw it up on my site for you. Or don't, if you don't really want anyone to see it. That's cool too.

Pretty sure S&S nor I has anything to hide. Except maybe that we are fake smoking in the picture. I mean, it was for CPS so we had to at least pretend.

The real issue is I'm just too lazy to have set up a new photo-sharing account yet.

You’re in Holland? My son lives there. My sympathies for having George’s Smoke Shop.

Yeah, George's is disappointing. The only redeeming factor is one of the local breweries has a delicious tobacconist porter which is brewed with black cavendish they buy from George.

HA! :rotfl:

Mentioning how disappointing George's is, below a picture of JMG made my LOL. Mrs JMG has evidently become used to it.

Please pray for Thoth. As you may know he is being considered for the priesthood.

Hey I think Thoth is smoking a former JMcP Pipe, either that or he has an Ardor that looks just like one I used to have haha!
