The project is complete and ready to ship. Black foam rubber was added to cushion the glassware.

“Of course, now I am too old to be much of a fisherman, and now of course I usually fish the big waters alone, although some friends think I shouldn’t. Like many fly fishermen in western Montana where the summer days are almost Arctic in length, I often do not start fishing until the cool of the evening.

Then in the Arctic half-light of the canyon, all existence fades to a being with my soul and memories and the sounds of the Big Blackfoot River and a four-count rhythm and the hope that a fish will rise.

Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.

I am haunted by waters.”

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

And which cigar?

Great! Now think PIPE.  Wink Cheesy.........................Joe

I do enjoy a pipe now and then Joe.  A few years back I was on a genealogy search for my southern ancestors.  I discovered a company in Virginia that still grows the same blend that my ancestors grew back in the 1700’s in Virginia, I thought if I smoked some of the same tobacco it might somehow bring them closer to me.  I have to say it was a pleasant smoke, but I knew nothing about the care of fine tobacco products and consequently the leaf went dry as a bone on me. I also knew nothing about the care of a good pipe and now I need a flexible drill bit to clean it!  I’m smarter lately, now I have humidors, dedicated Tupperware, hydration packs, hygrometers, all the fun toys required for the care and keeping of fine tobacco and fine tobacco products.

It's a true art to enjoying a great smoke out of a great pipe. I have several decanters of mixed tobaccos. I often mix my own and like the Virginia Tobaccos, they are very mild and mix well. Some of the Italian pipes are good as well as the English, But they can get expensive.

Great work on the whiskey case (Irish).  I'm another pipe smoker that would appreciate such a case for my Ferndown pipes on the boat.  Great story of finding Virginia tobacco with a link to a family history.
