Well baby #2 is due a week later. I could pull this off, right?!

Yup!
Maybe, but remember your wife definitely can.
I've held things in for a couple days past their due date that were comparable to a baby. Weekend winter campouts with nothing but a freezing cold stainless steel seat in a pit pot coupled with the very real possibility of being stuck in place until the next guy came along to save you makes just about anything possible.
This post forms the basis for a whole new thread. A "masculinity" thread, even.
Yes! We all want debate the merits of "holding it in" v. "pulling it off"!
So, I take it you're saying this type of masculinity thread is a bad idea. And I had a good poem in mind, too.
I would like to indicate that you could always PM me....
This thread is headed to the youth room fast... I feel at fault for this. I'll go sit in the corner. As I walk away with my head hung low, I'll glace back at the rest of the class with a grin and chuckle to myself.

Just made my reservations for Thursday through Sunday. Doubt I'll have any pipes this year but I'm going anyway.

Remember that time you said you would buy me a round trip ticket from PNG to Chicago and back for the same dates that you mentioned? You're a good guy. Oh, I'd like that first class. Please and thank you.

JMG, If you can get to Aurora, IL, I would be glad to give you a ride to Pheasant Run. Picking you up at O'Hare might be a stretch, but perhaps I could do that also.

No worries, mate. It's only $7346 to fly you out of Wewak Airport to Chicago O'Hare with stops at Port Moresby, Singapore, and San Fran. You okay with an 11:35 am departure time on Thursday, May 2nd?

On Thursday, May 2nd, Sutliff will be presenting a seminar on blending tobacco, in the smoking tent. We are still working on the details, but it should be similar to the class from two years ago. Each student used clay pipes to taste each component tobacco, (YES! Straight Perique!) and then combined the components into his preferred blend. They used pressure to mimic the aging / blending process. Thus each student was able to tweak their blend to their liking. They went home with a large quantity of their special blend. (Don't ask how much, since I don't know.)

We are working with Sutliff to iron out the details, like time, # of students, cost, etc. But, if you are interested in this event, please e-mail me at cpccdirector@gmail.com to register. Since this class will be limited to 10 people, (+/- depending on final decision), register soon.

I really wish I had the chance to take a class like this when I first started smoking a pipe. Why buy a blend that you won't smoke?

I doubt I would be able to make it out early for the blending seminar, but it sounds like a good time.

On Sunday, May 5th, the UPCA (United Pipe Clubs of America) Slow Smoke Contest will be held in the Smoking Tent. The link below provides all the details on the contest. There is a picture of the pipe and description of the tobacco that will be used. The cost is $85, unless you belong to a pipe club that is part of the UPCA. Then the cost is only $75.

The tobacco blending seminar will take place in the smoking tent at 10:00 am on Thursday morning. The cost will be $20, payable before we start. We have room for 20 people and six have already confirmed they want to participate. If you want to be part of this, please PM with your name and confirmation you will be able to attend. I will keep track of everyone, in case more than 20 people want to take part in the fun.

What a deal! I doubt I can make it out on Thursday though.
