Some of you may already know me from a couple other forums. I just joined here on the recommendation of a friend.
A bit about me:
I started smoking a pipe a little over 30 years ago and today have a fairly extensive pipe collection and tobacco cellar. Pipe-wise, my favorites are billiards, apples, bulldogs, and freehands with a smooth finish. Tobacco-wise, I mostly smoke Va and English blends. Among my favorite blends are LEO, Stave-Aged 35, Old Dog, Rajah's Court, Chatham Manor, Angler's Dream, Strang, Arrowhead Pipe Club Mixture, and a few others.
I am a member of Arrowhead Pipe Club, Furniture City Pipe Society, and NASPC. I am also on the Board of Directors of IAPSC. I love attending pipe shows and am a regular at the Chicago and Columbus shows. I also greatly enjoy slow smoke contests. I've had a few good results this past year and place 3rd in the 2016 IAPSC World Championship and 8th in the 2017 UPCA US National.
I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone here.

welcome from a novice in WV!
She came in with a smile and a pipe. A study of contradictions, she seemed to understand more than most. Eyes shining with humor and a comforting, easy to talk to demeanor. She was a goddess in mortal skin. She raised a glass and said, "Confusion to the memory of Newton."
