I think I'll probably acquire a half dozen pipes in 2019.

One or two.

One, I hope to pick up a Vauen. But I'm happy with what I have, so could be zero.

I predict that I will not buy any tobacco or pipes this year.



Yeah, right.

I’m counting this one, a Jonas estate purchased today. Wrote a longer description in the general forum bc my experience at Iwan Reis was terrific.

I’m going with one more after this. We’ll see if I stick to that. History would suggest it isn’t likely.

I don't plan to get new pipes in 2019.

But the pipes? They might wish to come to my house to stay,

I shouldn't buy any, but really, what kind of piper would I be with that kind of thinking.

The minimum will be two: the POY and a Christmas pipe. As long as 7formy1911 behaves himself and doesn't taunt me I might just get away with only those.
