My two meers did see a lot of action this month but, I didn't commit to them exclusively. Riteaid up the road has two carded cobs hanging up on the rack, I think I'll buy one and save it for July. Then there is the ABC in August. My schedular is filling up.

I've thoroughly enjoyed working my meers exclusively this month. I am looking forward to getting back into the mix with just grabbing whatever pipe tickles my fancy though

Here's a meer wannabe, a briar with an identity crisis. It didn't appear at all this month though. Maybe it sould have self identified as a meerschaum. :lol:

The most maddening part of March Meer Madness for me has been smoking one lonely bowl all month...

Tonight will feature an in depth video review of Daughters and Ryan's offering, English Hoopla, courtesy of @BamaRick.

Now that it's in writing, I can follow through without tweaking SotH too much.

Since there seems to be a month for every kind of pipe, are we going to also have a Pipe Divot December? Smoke your clay once a day! Then like with meerschaums, we can take pictures of our teeth where we clench, and show our gradual tooth wear?

In a bid to get more involved in MMM, late as it may be, I attempted to pickup a lightly smoked Kiko meer - that nice rusticated(?) look with a darkened bowl top from eBay. I was winning with a $20.50 bid with 30 seconds left, when I refreshed the page - I had been outbid by $1. Knew I should've placed a slightly higher bid than an even $30. Damn... Anyways I still have the no-name apple that has a gnarly cigarette ghost, so I'm resorting to stronger means to clean it out. Can't smoke for at least another week, so I guess I have a year to get it ready for MMM... or just buy another meer? hahaha

My goal for the month was all meer every day except for a MM to leave the house. WAYS tells the tale. I have missed the briars, and that is no lie...

I bet you do..! Your first bowl back in the briar will be fantastic. Only a few more days, hang in there!

Today is the first time I really want to load up a briar but like yourself, I'm not going to
