I just bought a Tilshead bent billiard on eBay. Probably shouldn't have. Now, I have to pick another pipe to add to the "sell" pile. But I swear, dollar for dollar (I have paid around fifty bucks for each of mine), these things are just remarkable.
I don't always choose sig lines just to tick someone off, but when I do, it's on CPS.

Yep, the prize is a turd that can be refurbished to look beautiful again...

I was hoping the prize would be a tin of McClellands from John-Boy.
I might have 1 or 2 more tins around. I'll have to check.
A tin for most accurate prediction and a tin for most pipes purchased.

Well I'm at 2 for January and 3 for 2019. Does that mean I win?

I tend to find the doctrinal books often more helpful in devotion than the devotional books.... I believe that many who find that "nothing happens" when they sit down, or kneel down, to a book of devotion, would find that the heart sings unbidden while they are working their way through a rough bit of theology with a pipe in their teeth and a pencil in their hand.

Well I didn't make it very long...not even through the 2nd month of the year and I have a new/estate pipe headed my way. I made a lowball offer and they accepted it...so I have a Wally Frank Billiard winging its way to Colorado.

I mean, when they accept a low ball offer it's kinda like they're paying you to take it. You'd be silly not to, right?

I have examined this year's St Patrick pipes by Peterson. My fast is not at risk.

I got a Mark Twain cob as my first serious cob-mod.

I have accidentally destroyed the shank.

I've tried a few DOZEN fix actions to no avail.

I'm a Project Manager; not a cob-moder, Jim.

This showed up 3 days early, opened it last night. It is in fantastic condition. It took about 10 min to clean up and I will give it a smoke tonight.
