Mrs. King and I were in the French Quarter today.

Mrs. King: "I can't believe you walked by so many shops that don't interest you and this is the one where you walked past and then pulled me back to take a picture of this."

WK: "These pipes caught my eye. I can't decide which one of them I want to add to my collection."

Mrs. King: "Don't you have anything better to think about?"

WK: "I've got to take a photo to share on PSF."

Happy smoking and a very merry Christmas to all. I hope you get what you wish for!

I am sure they are well engineered and all.. but I feel like I'd have a hard time clenching one. Can I get the er... mouthpiece(?) in vulcanite?

Get the Meerschaum and the Morta? It's funny but these are kind of disgusting, no? I see a b-hole and it looks functional...

I know some people give their pipes names. Names like 'Jill', for instance....



And I know some people call their yarbles "The Hardy Boys." I'm not here to judge. I was never a big Sean Cassidy fan. He was a little too effete for me, but the 8-year-old girls found him dreamy.

I just tossed the original photo out in the spirit of Christmas as documentary reporting. I'd like these more if they were meerschaum, but even then, I wouldn't like them that much. Mrs. King doesn't approve and I can't blame her for that. Taste is subjective but there is such a thing as bad taste. We're pretty close to the low end of the spectrum with these pipes.

I don't know anything about art, but I know what I like when I see it.

Smoke in good health!!!
