Brother, I keep waiting for Dear Sweetie to threaten my life! But she's just smiled and said, "Very nice!" I won a Grabow last night, and I don't think she knows about that yet. That might be the last straw. :D
How would she know if you don't tell her?? Lol...I lost a Grabow on Saturday from a snipe app by a dollar! I retreat to my bathroom come closing time on listings, my wife heard me using fowl language and came to the door and said, "I know what your doing" lol I can't get away from her at home.
She keeps a weather eye on the bank account! Plus, I swear she pulls vibes out of the ether!
Ahh, I was thinking your poker face needs some work. Lol

My darlin' loves this finish, as do I.
It shouted buy me!
Image does not do it justice.

Strange that all these pipes arrived today, some much earlier than estimated ETAs.

On a roll! 👍

When I had that (Pipe) (A)quistion) (S)yndrome, I turned off all notifications and used a different browser. I felt like an alcoholic hiding booze and pain pills. All I can say is that it's a lot better than drugs, but my behavior was worse. Of course I wasn't buying Grabows.

I see nothing wrong with buying pipes if that's what you like to do with your money. It's when people start considering it a disorder or a syndrome is when it's all down hill. You have a nice collection to be happy about...👍

I have more pipes than I'll ever smoke or need, and probably it's ridiculous. But I've had friends that built model trains, or that rebuilt cars, did woodworking, some that built and flew RC planes. I buy pipes and smoke'em. When I need a little distraction or a pick-me-up, I'll go through them. I spend far less money than colleagues spend on golf or pro-sports tickets. The pipes are more expensive than puzzles, but cheaper than most model car kits. So, Dear Sweetie is actually pretty cool with it...though sometimes she rolls her eyes. :D

The rolling of the eyes is harmless, your lucky. I used to get lamps and other blunt objects thrown at me. Lol... everything has a price tag unless we are all happy to just sit and stare at the wall in our spare time which can get boring i imagine. Just think of the thrill your going to get come the next bank statement. Exciting times! Lol

My wife and I are both clergy, and so we do a lot of the non-anxious presence when people are processing marital issues. Sometimes we are doing counseling.

I have a day job and a work ethic. My "vices" are pretty benign and don't involve interns at work. I have more pipes than I need, but as a thing to collect, this is a lot better than restraining orders or misconduct investigations. My long-suffering wife has an appreciation of all this.
