If you would kindly let me know the security code on the back of that Visa card, then I will have a very merry Christmas indeed.
I edited the original photo to remove the card.
Good call, I did not catch that, although it’s an old card anyway, we no longer have that account and the card is expired, we let our daughter keep old cards in her play wallet, I’m pretty sure that’s where that came from...

A little surprise awaited me when I got home Friday!

If it's any indication of how generous the giver was, I could smell the fully sealed box before I saw it...

I'm at work right now so I can't upload any pics (or recall right off hand what exactly I received) but it's a box-o-latakia goodness. The letter said I've been a good boy so the gifter must have been drunk because there ain't no way I've been this good...

Seven tins. You heard me. Seven tins of tobacco. Two sample bags. Two brand spankin' new pipes. And a sweet vintage pipe advertisement. If I'm forgetting anything it's only because I'm still shocked at how generous my secret santa is. I'll try to upload a picture later.

Thanks Santa!

I think I know who my Secret Santa is... Bloodhound! If it’s you then thank you very much for all the awesome presents! If it’s not you I’ll keep guessing...

Indeed. Awesome indeed.

BTW, Pez is a great idea for some grandkid stocking stuffers. I was looking for some sort of special jerky that I can't find, but Pez will do nicely.

Evidently I've been naughty because I got a c0b. Mrs FredS said I should just re-gift it next year. I said I can't because the SSSOB used a sharpie to write "Christmas 2018" on it.

Hello FredS
That's my plan. I'll cross out the '8' and scribble on a '9'. Who knows, it may turn in to a perpetual CPS gag to pass it around. Although now that I've written it down, it probably won't. You can't force that sort of thing.

Hello FredS
Yes, of course. I just took me a while to get around to taking and uploading the picture.

Besides the wonderful, distinctive, hand-painted, one-of-a-kind corn c0b pipe, my package included some wonderful arromatics and burleys. A sample of Lanes BLWB which I've been wanting to try, a tin of C&D Jolly Old St Nicholas (reminds me of our own Brother Nick, and sounds intriguing with orange flavoring), a tin of Ashton Guilty Pleasure, and a tin of Two Timer Gold (burley and Va). Some cool matches from a historic grocer, some Pina Colada lollipops, and a couple tampers round out the deal.

Thanks so much Johnny Mac.

If it did work out and a person got the pipe...it would be an easy guess that year about the ID of their SS. I hope it works out even though it has been jinxed

I am a bit tardy with my public gratitude to Secret Santa (got reasons but no excuses).

My overflowing package arrived last week from Winton who apparently is also known as "Sir Daddy" according to the return address.

I will have an extended good time enjoying the large samples of:
C&D Oak Alley
Newminster Danish Gold
Edgeworth Ready Rubbed
World Tobac
Lane Hazelnut
C&D Popular Camp
CAO Cherrybomb
P&C Egg Nog
Seven Seas Royal
Ed Burak's Scottish Ribbon

I also received full tins of Dunhill Flake, Orlik Racing Green and Viprati. He included a hand turned crab apple wood tamper, a Savinelli sticker, a Chesterton compilation book, a Kiseru and a package of Kizami.
Image

Definitely a Christmas bounty!----Thanks again Winton.
