I got the pipes back that @Thelonious monkfish graciously agreed to clean up. I think they look great!

He enclosed a couple of samples - Polish Condor and Dark Plug. I will be sampling them soon. Thanks!

In theory, I have committed to a meer-only month for MMM. The take to work pipe has been the bored-out Rob Roy cob. It may be tough to wait to get these two back in the rotation. I will try to be strong.

Glad they arrived and you approve. I'm sure you'll enjoy the Dark Plug. And we all know you have the will to do so but why deprive yourself, go ahead and load them up if it makes you happy.

It was all stem! Bowl just needed the worn finish stripped and some wax, a shine on the metal and stem changed it's whole look.

Sundays are feast days even during Lent. Maybe tomorrow can be a break from the MMM for me? For now I am staying on program.
