Well lads, after a long, long, long hiatus from the heaven-on-earth we call pipe smoking, and an even longer hiatus from these hallowed forums...I have returned.
I won't bore you with the details unless pressed, but suffice it to say, "life happened" and it is extremely good to be back!
Posting here because it has been so long, I expect I am an utter noob once again instead of the rank novice I was upon disappearing back in...what was it, '10? Ah well, it doesn't matter. Wondering if any gents I chatted with back then are still around!
