The One That Got Away

It's no secret that I am a HUGE fan of David Enrique's pipes. I have several and want more. Recently David formed an "Alliance" with renowned French pipe maker Pierre Morel. Together they are creating a very affordable line of pipes. So far they have focused their attention on shapes based on pipes from the early days of great Danish pipe making. They are beautiful and I want one. I had hopes of getting my first one a couple of weeks ago. I found the pipe shown above on David's website and I fired off an email sure that it would soon be mine. Alas- it was already sold. Apparently I am not the only one jonesing for one of these pipes. I will try to be quicker next time ... and keep my fingers crossed ... and maybe live a more righteous life (?). I'll let you know if anything works. -T

Update- It must have been the crossed fingers, I certainly haven't even begun to attempt the "righteous life" idea - or maybe the pipe god's just smiled on me. A sort of heavenly whim. Anyway, the pipe will soon be winging it's way from France to my old Tennessee home. :)

You, sir, are a low-down dirty dog.

The local cops will be requesting your assistance in the investigation of Two Cousins in re. Jester's Budget [armed assault, battery], which, after viewing David Enrique's site, was found bludgeoned and stabbed near a dumpster adjacent to his bank.

As soon as Mrs. Jester finishes wiping the blood from her cast-iron skillets she wants to talk with you also.

I'd speak with you myself, but the matter of Commonwealth vs. Jester [robbery, assault] is limiting me somewhat.

Great looking pipe racks, thanks for the link.
