Del, in all his glory (and his Workman's Utilikilt).

Couldn't get the high-contrast image of Gabe, so Pipeson will have to suffice.

I don't think I will make it.

I had a wonderful time all day friday night and most of Saturday! The pre show was packed, the actual show had more tables than I recall being there last year. Squeezing past the plethora of man purses was tough with the tighter aisles, but I think it was worth it to see more exhibitors there. I left with some briar, bamboo, a couple tins of tobacco, and an estate pipe I liked. I regretfully have no photos to share as my phone allows for no better quality than the grainy images of UFO and Bigfoot sightings.

I don't think it's the beginning of the end. Things just didn't work out for some folks this year. I was glad to see the people I did and am sorry for the ones I missed. I do have to nominate Skip for the best excuse of 2017 award. Digitally scrubbing acne from a kid's face...

Winton stops by. Has on tie. Seriously. A tie. Nerd.

What's wrong with wearing a tie at the Pipe Show? It matched both my dress shirt and the fishing vest.

If you belted that fishing vest around your waist then it could be a Utilikilt.

...with some very poorly placed not-so-random openings. Don't do it.

I missed the entourage. Unless you're referring to Quincy "Danger" Worthington the jiu jitsu Presbyterian Minister and Dr. Charlie the deputy sheriff and college professor. Friday night they were following me around to make sure Hank the Tank didn't get out of control.

As for the vibe of the show, I think FredS is right that there seemed to be a sense of impending doom that no one wanted to admit to but had struck fear into the hearts of pipe men in attendance. It was somber. No one getting wild and crazy like years past....except for Hank. Hank the Tank was grossly under appreciated this year. Sad.

We sat in the tent for hours, late into the night.... Pipeson & Bigwill & Myself.... just waiting for a taste of that 2017 Hooch Special.

It was so wonderful seeing everyone.

I know I'm not around as much anymore. Or ever. But the bonds are still there, and seeing old friends was such a great experience. It made me miss this place. Then I checked in again. And I read a few threads. And. And. And... :wink: :lol: :bacon:

Okay, so BigWill bought that at the silent auction? It's purdy.

Ima guess he paid at least $750 for it. Maybe even $752.

Make sure you put it in a sock, and forget about it until next year

Already done. But you've ruined it. You already reminded me. So now it's etched in there.
