I've been wanting a morta for a long time, I was looking for a Rhodesian, but then I ran across this one, and...wow. I love the shape, the grain, everything! Except the price. LOL. My pipe budget can't afford a used cob right now. Oh well, I can drool and dream!
:pipe3: Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
The old pipe gives the sweetest smoke.

What would life be without drooling and dreaming? A man's reach should exceed his grasp or what's a heaven for?
fixed it for you
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal

That's far more eloquent. Not to mention, less messy.

I'll just remind you that it is PAD that you're ennobling. JudgeRusty just won entrance to Beelzebub's.

You had it right the first time. Hint: Refrain from comparing avarice to heaven.

I'll just remind you that it is PAD that you're ennobling. JudgeRusty just won entrance to Beelzebub's.

You had it right the first time. Hint: Refrain from comparing avarice to heaven.

If you get simple beauty and naught else, you get about the best thing God invents. (Also, Robert Browning)

Avarice?
Avarice!

We're talking about the love of art!
Divine madness!
The Sistine Chapel, The Last Supper, the Pieta, Bach--the pipes of man's desiring.
If one has the means to be surrounded by art, one has the moral obligation to be so surrounded.

[Cue The Pope's Choir singing Palestrina, softly, in the background. . . ]

The gift of rationalization is the PAD sufferer's best friend. (Durangopipe)

LOL! That last sentence is a killer. When you need big art, you're probably in trouble.

There is a reason why they're called the seven deadly sins. And I'm certainly guilty.

ImageIt's a bit off topic, but rarely had I seen a tamper of man's desiring, until now. I mean, it's carved to look like Sir Walter Raleigh.
