    Taking a step back

    Gentlemen -

    I am going to be taking a step back from the puff forums for a while, for personal reasons. Please know that it has nothing to do with any of the outstanding gentlemen of the pipe forums. My reasons for doing this are not a secret, but I will not discuss them on puff.

    Note that I said I'm taking a step back, not leaving. I anticipate that I'll be in and out periodically, but I won't be here nearly as frequently as I once was.

    Anyway - I wouldn't have posted this at all, except for the Tobacco of the Month. I didn't start it, but it fell in my lap, and it has become my "baby" over the last several months that I've been running it. It has been an honor and a priviledge to administer it for the last few months, but I will not be doing so any more as of now.

    The Tobacco of the Month is a lot of fun for everyone, and is a great resource for newbies and FOGs alike, and I would hate for it to fall by the wayside just because I wasn't able to run it anymore.

    I don't feel that I have the authority to choose someone to carry the torch, and I don't want the responsibility of making that choice anyway. So, rather than clutter up the TOTM thread, I started this thread so that you guys would have a place to discuss things if needed, and hash out plans to continue it or whatever.

    Good luck, gentlemen.

    Not much, really. Post the poll thread, look up descriptions and post them on the poll thread, keep track of nominations, etc. There's nothing involved other than what you've seen me post on the threads.

    sorry to see you taking some time off cliff. You were always good for sending me a #10 envelope full of lakeland blends that tasted too much like grandmother soap

    Clifford, life comes first & always should. Do what you need to do, take all the time you require. Come back to us my friend when you are at peace.

    Again, I'm not leaving, I'm just not going to be here as often. I hate it when members post 'goodbye' threads, and I didn't intend for this to be one. I genuinely just wanted to let everyone know that I won't be fulfilling my role as keeper of the TotM anymore.

    I hesitate to reply to this at all for fear of inciting even more drama. But you're implying that I've got some sort of issues in my life, so I feel it necessary to let the rest of the gentlemen here know - no, it's not life. I and my family are a-okay.

    Warren, if you are being genuine then I'll thank you for the sentiment, and apologize in advance for the rest of my reply. But I suspect that you do know that it's not my life that is leading me away from here, it's the recent drama that is pushing me away from here. Frankly, I'm a bit insulted that you would come to this thread and imply otherwise.

    It's early, and I haven't had my coffee. If I read too much into your post, then I do sincerely apologize, Warren.

    I implied nothing but my best wishes for you.

    You said this in your original post.
    I am going to be taking a step back from the puff forums for a while, for personal reasons.
    I assumed that there was an issue in your life and nothing more. I am sorry you saw it otherwise as I have nothing but the best wishes for you & yours. I'll just take my misunderstood ass back to silence again.

    You read too much.

    Apparently I don't get to the other side of puff often enough............ Anyway I really did like the way you ran the totm. And I think I speak for all pipers here that you have done a bang up job on it and have created some pretty big shoes to fill on this job.

    1792 Flake was first produced in 1830, exactly 139 years before man walked on the moon. Coincidence?
