Hi Ho Ian!

My paternal Grandfather (Pop) was a pipe smoker as was my Dad (Wally) and they both had quite a collection. I love the smell of that cherry blend!

If you could attend and take pictures at the Loch Norman Games that would be AWESOME! Send them to me or post them here and I'll save the images, and add them to the spring Newsletter. Roberto and I will not be at the Loch Norman Games this year,  :'( first time since 2009.  Have a Scotch Egg for me.  ;D

Yours aye,
Sherry

If I get the pipe by then I will bring it. And of course I will be happy to help in any way I can. Possibly both days. If we get a good view of the field it may be my place to hang out and watch the games lol.

Right now I am trying to get a pricing for it, but they haven't responded back yet. I will let everyone know when I do.

I wonder how many if any of my cousins are pipe smokers? I am one and love the hobby. Recently I came across a pipe maker who does laser etching on their pipes and I think the crest would look cool on one. I wonder if it would be alright for me to get one and bring it to the games. The company is http://www.boswellpipes.com/boswelllaserart1.html

Sure! New ideas are always good - ask about pricing for us and if we can just order if/when we get an order and have him drop ship.

Hey Ian - any chance you could take it to the Loch Norman games? Tom and I won't be there this year, but Sharon and Jim will be and surely one of you three could get us some pictures! Tom used to smoke a pipe - I really liked it - but when I quit cigarettes, he quit smoking too. Guess he thought it would bother me.  I will be at the Maryville, TN games in May with Sherry Anderson. It's a nice games if you haven't been there - a bit of a drive for you, but Sherry comes in from Ashevillet. We could get some pics then.......

Whatever!

Another thing - would you be able to help out at the tent for a few hours Saturday or Sunday? With only two in the tent, they won't get to see much of the games or vendors, so if you could relieve them for an hour or two, it would help.

It applies to BOTH........Burberry does the camel and the grey now! Their camel/grey thread counts are the same except for the color.....Our camel is a thread or two off our grey, so the images really apply to both colors.

Clear as mud?

Okay, I'm confused here.   ???  Are we talking about the brown tartan or the gray tartan?  I thought the Burberry was brown and our Thompson camel is brown and similar to the Burberry.....

The thread counts are really quite different, but with stripes and stripes....it can get confusing!

Our tartan has a wide center black  stripe with the red stripe going through it and 2 smaller black stripes on either side, and a red strip going through the grey area.

Burberry has 3 equal width stripes and their red stripe ONLY goes through the grey, not through the black stripe also.
