		   Pipes Digest #58 - June 7, 1991

Welcome to new member:

	Bill Fischer		(????????????????????)

And, as the next letter shows, we're having problems reaching Elias
Mazur, the fellow who inspired the pipenet! Read on...

To Elias
sorry to use this way but Elias' path looked somewhat strange to me.

In 1986 I was in Augsburg (west of Munich) for a day and decided to
buy me a second pipe. Since my 1st pipe was a present, I never had 
seriously spent time in a pipe shop before. I found s.th. what occured
to me as a pipe store and up to now its still the biggest pipe shop
I have seen. There I got an introduction on pipes which lasted about
 one hour. The only other thing I remember from this shop:
 this introduction was given by a woman. (Before that I never saw a
 woman 'handling' a pipe and since I remember only one more; WHY IS
 this so ?)
As far as I remember from this day the shop was near the eastern
end of the inner cities foot-passengers zone. There are two main
lanes of shops with some places inbetween. The lanes going east-west
but slightly bowed to the south. I recall the shop at the southern
bow about 100 meters from the eastern end.

Err, hope you dont get lost with this description.
And (since it was my 1st and therefor impressive visit of a pipe shop)
you might only find a small kiosk  :)
In the end I came out of the shop with my 2nd pipe:
  Stanwell No. 11 ,  black and 'sand beamed'
It's still my favoured one.

However, I wish you a nice stay in  Garmisch 
and there is still  'my' shop in Bonn; AVOID any shop in the foot passenger
zone here ! But as I see you are not passing here. 


[ Martin, I'm having trouble getting through to Elias too. Neither his
old address (???????????????????????) nor his new one
(??????????????????????????????) works; mail to postmaster at the new
address bounces too. Any ideas, anybody? -S. ]

When were you in CA?  And you didn't even call :-<  You are very right about
the anti-smoking atmosphere here.  We have a larger portion of yuppies here
and most of them expect to live forever so anything that reduces that goal
is a threat and is treated most harshly.  Oh well,  live and let live.  It
is kind of funny that most of them jog, and jogging in this smog filled
area for 20 min. is equivalent of 2 pack of cigarretes.  Go figure, for sure.

Take care,


[ Sorry, Norm - next time I'm there, I'll have my agent call your
agent and we'll do lunch :-) -S. ]

Are Dr. Grabow's pipe's bites getting brittler? 
Are Amphora's tobaccos seeming staler?

I was curious if any one out there lives in Burlington, Vt.?
There is an excellent tobacco shop along the pedrestian mall there.

[ Some .sig, Joshua! Never smoked Dr. Grabow's, but IMHO any tobak in
a roll-up pouch stands a good chance of being stale. I stick to a
couple of local tobacco shops for mine. -S. ]
