I'm just glad I wasn't the shortest one in the picture for a change.

Looks like a lot of fun was had.
Great looking group.

Indeed. We were lucky to celebrate the beginning of a new work gig with Simeon that day. And he's still making some sweet pipes.

So this morning I had the pleasure of a meet up with sweetandsour and enjoy a smoke and a great conversation. I think we could have spent many hours smoking and talking but we only had a couple of hours. Tim thank you so much. It always amazes me the friendships that start in this place in the inter webs. The visit also allowed me to find a really cool B&M pipe cigar shop not too far from home. Stag Tobacco. Tim have a safe trip and I look forward to meeting up again, hopefully in the near future.

Oops no pics...we got busy talking and smoking and didn't get a pic...next time

Yeah, next time we need Fred here to take a pic or two.

That's a very nice shop, and nice guy running it. I really did enjoy the visit. Ready to get home though, sitting at the gate here now. But hopefully I'll be back soon.

Next time do it in the evening instead of on a weekday morning and I'll be there. We're not all men of leisure you know.

Truth is, I've met you both and you're fine, upstanding gentlemen who I'd love to share another smoke with someday.

I'm jealous. My goal is to get Wosbald to agree to a smoke and a chat. He's only 90 miles away and I'd drive in a heartbeat to meet him.

Good for you both. There was a lot of wisdom in that room today.

I hope someday to meet you both along with about 25 or 30 others.

What we need to do is have 30 guys descend on the tick farm.

I could do a tick farm meet-up. For my part I'd bring up about 100 lbs of crawfish and the seasoning to go with it. Some wild hog sausage too perhaps.
