Back from the Pipe Show

Mark and I made it back home after a great time at the Chicago pipe Show. It's always a pleasure to catch up with old friends and spend a weekend immersed  in the world of pipes. We added a couple of days to the trip this year and that made the event much more enjoyable. We weren't totally worn out the whole time.
I didn't take many photos this year but here's a couple to prove we really went. -T

Cleaning Pipes

Getting ready for the trip to Chicago.

I saw a post on Facebook by Fumeurs de Pipe today about Martin Hansen (KiltedPiper). He lives in Germany and makes some unique pipes. I am so tempted by this one, but I don't know... -T

New David Enrique Pipe On the Way!

David sent photos of the new pipe he has made for me and I'm pretty sure I'm going to love it. I asked him to take a Pipe Dan shape and make his version. I think he did a great super cool job. I can wait to get it. -T

Nice ring blast

Burning Scrap

We end up with mounds of scrap wood and fortunately this is a good time of the year to enjoy a fire. -T

Wow! Just One Month!

Until The Chicago Pipe Show! This event is always a highlight in my year. So many friends I only see once a year not to mention all the pipes! Mark and I will be there with bells on or at least beards. Hope to see you. -T
