For a while now I have been contemplating
my navel buying a new pipe.
I’m very happy with my day-to-day pipe that I smoke at the moment, but accidents can happen and spares are always handy.
The choice of where I go is already cast in stone, or briar should I say? Elie is the best damn pipe-maker I know of and I wouldn’t go anywhere else.
I mean to say – who wouldn’t be tempted to buy one of the Shire range?
I can just see myself puffing on that down in the pub and making ‘em all jealous?
Or maybe something a bit smaller?
I really fancy that last one, but it’s a tad outside my price range. Bugger!
I suppose I shall end up getting another similar to my present one.
It’s a nice very cool smoke with an ingenious cooling and filtering system built in, and it is also quite good at attracting sidelong and suspicious glances.
Anyhows I have written to Elie asking what’s on offer these days. He commutes between Belgium and France and is probably basking in the Dordogne at the moment. Lucky bastard. Leastwise I don’t expect a reply by return.
And in case anyone is wondering – this is not a sponsored post. He doesn’t even know I’m writing it.
I just believe in giving credit where credit is due.
