This will be a few days after my next appointment with the urologist but I think anything he wants to do will be further away than the 10th. So I'm going to say that date will work.
This is brilliant. I'm writing it down to use next time I need an excuse to get out of something. I think I'm old enough to make it sound plausible.

I could be there as early as 9am we could go grab breakfast someplace...
Is this the plan?

Although 9am is about 3 hours later than usual breakfast time, but I can adapt.
Has anyone contacted the tobacco shop to make sure they are not closed for National Blueberry Popover day or something?

When JB shows up, make sure somebody carries around his pipe gear for him. He doesn't like to be bothered with such trivial things.

That works fine for me, I wouldn't have been able to get there by 9 anyway. I'm a little uncertain at this point whether or not I'll make it - sneezing, coughing, blowing, that type of thing - but you guys have all had your shots, right? Hope to see you around 11 or later.

Special thanks to William Alexander Tobacconist for their hospitality

Johnny McPiperson arrived first and greeted me at the door

His buddy, and sometime CPSer Kartharsis was great company

Steverino is commended for making the long drive from Lexington, NC

We had quite the buffet to chose from for a few hours of smokes

We posed for the obligatory CPS Meetup group photo

I was attracted to a nearby courthouse afterwards, Appomattox

A LARGE TIME WAS HAD BY ALL!
