I hope this message finds you all with a well lit pipe in hand.
Itís been ages since I have been on the forum, but as I lit up my pipe today, I felt a longing to reconnect with some of the amazing men here on the forum who helped get me started on my Pipe Smoking journey, what has now been a number of years ago. Iíve been lurking here for the past hour or so, and what I have gathered is that a lot has happened and changed in my absence, but I am happy to be back. It has been such an honor to get to know many of the BOTL here on the forum, and I cannot wait to reconnect with old friends and meet new Brothers who enjoy the time-honored tradition of The Pipe.
Itís an honor to be back!

Wow, Mycroft, it is great to hear from you! Strangely enough, I just checked in with Puff after a long absence yesterday, and I've bee re-reading the Sherlock Holmes collection you so generously sent to me so you've been in my thoughts as well! Thanks again for that. It was a wonderful gift that has provided me with countless hours of pleasure.
