Every time I look at a bulldog or a Rhodesian I think of Rusty. Every time. I think of the many times we argued and debated over what defined those styles of pipes. Some might think, "Who cares? It's just a pipe." He cared. A lot.

One of the most passionate rebukes I ever got here came from Rusty in a PM when he thought I was leading a newbie astray with my definitions of the shapes. It was a little unreal at the time, but I ended up taking it for what it really was - Rusty was caring for the newbie. I appreciated that and he was sharpening me.

And Erinmore Flake? I can't even look at that tobacco without hearing Rusty, in my own made up voice, calling it a "tart" of a tobacco.

Thanks, Rusty.

Son of a....

Reading this thread mad me realize how much I have missed you all the last few months. I am saddened, humbled, and touched. I don't know what else to say.
It sounded better when the voices in my head were saying it.

Strange, isn't it? The longer this place goes on the more this is going to happen.

True. It is the natural order of things. It still saddens us though.

I missed this thread when I popped back on (things a re bit different). I found out from CodeMonkey today and looked for the news; I had thought this was about a broken pipe incident involving Rusty's collection or summat!

Blow me down. Although stunned and immenseley saddened, I am privileged to have wandered into this grotto where Rusty held dominion on pipes, tobacco, science and miscellany and will miss our drinks at Beelzebub's bar (Rusty's choice). I am still not sure he didn't believe I was going to paddle down the Hudson and claim you lot back for the Crown; it seemed to tickle him, so I may yet do so in his memory.

Farewell, old erudite, ornery, mental jack-jumper. I'll have a Doombar at the Angel in Wainfleet tonight in your memory, now they have closed Beelzebub's. Feel free to sip over my shoulder, any time you like.
