w00t! You hit that nail on the head. I have two 789's and they are really great pipes. It is a shorter pot and very nice for being out and about, etc. It was due to an experience with a 789, that I am a lot more cautious about pipes that "travel" and pipes that stay at home these days. I had a 789 that went AWOL. I was pretty sure it had fallen out of my jacket pocket climbing in or out of the Suburban. I retraced steps. I looked in places it might have been pushed by snow plows. I finally gave up.
Four months later, I hit a pothole and it jumped out from under the seat of the Suburban. You can hardly imagine how happy I was to see it again.
I was tempted to use it as an illustration the next time I preached Luke 15:8–10, but I decided against it.
