Adam Takes a Day Off
This week is very exciting for some people here at Smokingpipes.com. I'm taking a vacation day tomorrow to work on pipes in my shop and it's actually planned around my wife's work schedule. As it happens, Tuesday is also the day when some of the staff begins pipe inventory. New pipes, estate pipes, and maybe even tobacco and cigars are all getting counted, checked, accounted for, and tracked down. I'm really not sure to what extent this is happening, even though I've been here for five years and have tackled inventory extensively before. I look at this almost like being a senior at my fraternity house; which means the newer recruits did the busy work. Pam had to remind me two times about writing this introduction for today, as I was under the false-impression that nothing was supposed to be done this week, and was planning to install a kiddy-pool in my office with a floating lawn chair which would comfortably allow me to sip mojitos while playing Dave Matthews Band on my computer. This is Spring break for many people, right? We are not supposed to get any new pipes to put into the system, so I completely misunderstood that other things were still happening around here. My mistake.
Writing the introduction is often fun, though. Sometimes they are topical to happenings on the site, in the office, or the weather (which is in the upper 30s and raining [yuck] after being around 80 last week). It's supposed to be sunny and warmer tomorrow, though. Thank goodness I'm taking a vacation day (which really ends up meaning I work all day anyway). Hopefully the employees keeping track of everything will get some pizzas and have fun. This is a lot like spring cleaning and everyone will feel better when it is completed.
Today we have pipes from Dunhill, Luciano, Savinelli, Peterson, and Vauen. Please take a look!
