I was at the Davenport Hotel in Spokane this weekend and saw this:

    Savinelli makes a copy of his pipe. I hear it's a well liked shape

    I have two of the Savinelli copies. They are great.

    Christmas was never Christmas at our house growing up without Big Crosby singing Xmas Classics on the stereo while we setup all the Xmas decorations.

    A copy of that pipe is on my short list

    There is one on order but not for me

    I'm confused. When I follow the link it says deliver to 69022 zip. That can't be right

    Why does it feel like everyone knows what's going on but me?

    Its kind of like 2 + 2 = 4 
    the math is easy

    Ok....I suck....I thought I was way smoother on this.  Thought the tracking number only gave the day it would be delivered.  Chock it up to a very old guy trying to be sly with modern technology.

    I apologize that there are no body guards and I wanted to thank you for your service; both in the Army and on this forum.  

    Thanks @Diver43!

    FROM MY HEART,

    Mark (84 CJ7)

     @84CJ7 it was my privilege to serve with honor.  But now i am the one confused

    This is possibly my most epic fail.

    I screwed this up more than you know

    1) Thought I would have a chance to check a "this is a gift" box so the details would be hidden.
    2) didn't realize the tracking # would show who it was going to
    3) when you posted the 2+2=4 comment, you saw all of that info
    4) writing my last post thinking it was going to you.

    Everything in my previous post about your service was heart felt.

    Enjoy, let me know how it smokes.

    The tracking number didn't show who it was going to. We were all confused because it showed it was delivering to whoever clicked the tracking link. Diver thought it was coming to me until the new tracking update showed it in Orlando.

    It was not an epic fail. I loved how it played out

    I did not receive any details, just the vendor info
    That is why I am unable to return fire.
    I thought it was heading toward @Captain_Call after he posted, then when I clicked on the link it said to me, guess if you have an account it automatically puts your info in it.
    I guarantee you will see me posting about it!!

    Maybe because I'm two years older than dirt, we still listen to his remastered CD's every Christmas.

    Thanks @[email protected]_Call, I was trying to build a little mystery.  I'm glad you enjoyed it.

    @84CJ7 it’s my fault for posting the damn picture in the first place 😀

    Here is a pic of my two Savinelli Bing's Favorite. They are great smokers. Really love the look of the Cumberland stem.

    @jsnake I love how that Cumberland stem looks as well. 

    I have seen a few of the Savinelli Bing’s Favorite on eBay and thought about buying one. I love Savinelli pipes, and this is my go-to style of pipe for non aromatic blends.
