Cool stuff I have (that you don't have) that enriches life

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

But an Amazon pic of a telescope? Really, this is sad. How about a pic with Bob using the telescope. That would be better. Now if you had taken a pic of your entire pipe collection covering every horizontal surface I would have been enthralled.

This is a do-over. Wanna try again?
Gotta back Rusty on this one. Worst picture post ever.
I've seen worse.
Sorry. Gotta side with Rusty on this one.
Sounds like Rusty needs to attend a hootenanny. UB wore a fancy telescope lookin' hat last one I attended.

And it has a drawer too. Definitely not a generic Amazon pic. Much better. What's in the drawer? And there's that horn again... what's that about? And the Phil's something or other bottle has been replaced with booze... which booze? And you wear glasses. That pic is a winner.

Jocose is going to pull his hair out trying to equal that. he probably has some commercial pipe rack, no drawer, and all the pipes in the rack have been written on with a green Sharpie. No contest.

I see a lot of hidden messages in the pic.

One example:If you add the pens in the cup and divide the number of pipes shown, you get his phone number.

The drawer is composed of lacewood and in it lives pipe cleaners. The horn is a hand-carved mead horn and the bottle is one of my meads.

I was holding out for a drawer full of fancy tampers, pipe tools, and lighters - enough to wake up MrPiper.

What? Is this briefcase and wife or some other strange arrangement? And without pictures of your wives and/or briefcases we probably can't sort this out... hint hint.

Why is a briefcase a big deal? I can understand if it really is your wife but otherwise... it seems somehow reminiscent of work.

It's the briefcase that gets you and not the rocks or obsidian posted above? It's carrying something given to you by a loving wife, for me. A reminder of why I work.

Your wife? That's so cool. There has to be a romantic story here. Just a sec... I need milk and cookies.

I pity you both. You don't know any better tho, so it's not your fault. Nonetheless, I pity you both.
