Nice shine.

I'm pretty sure you get enough meer smokes in to fulfill MMM that you can smoke the new out of those two.

It's kind of like Octoberfest... you have to take a break from beer sometime. Mmmmm, no you don't. Nevermind. That was probably a bad example. 8-)

I dunno.. I have always admired the state of his pipes. You can tell they are well loved, sort of like an old pair of jeans or worn boots. The feel like they were made just for you.
I always find immediately after I clean and polish stems, that I am sort of frustrated with the bite for a week or two until the sheen wears a bit and I get my grip back. If Fr_Tom level oxidation didn't make my lips stingy, I would probably just let them go.

I have pondered putting them back in the rotation or maybe just having a day when I go off the meers and smoke these again. I have decided that I am going to wait until April 1. I want to be committed to MMM. The pipes I am smoking now are good smokes. There will be time to smoke these two pipes again now that they are all clean and shiny.

If you want, you can consider this a form of DGT.

I am tempted of course, but I preached temptation today. I need to be able to take my own counsel.

Just waiting for it to be finished and then I'll make my final decision. If I pull the trigger you can bet that I'll post pictures
