Married with two sons and two grandchildren.
Retired NY State psychologist now living in California.
Pipe smoker/collector since 1962.
Co-founder of Fine Olde Briars.
An active eBay buyer and seller.

Retired 3 years after 30+ years as a psychologist with the NY State Office of Mental Retardation.

Now living in California, enjoying my collection of pipes and old tobacco, cooking, birding, drawing and pottery. It's GOOD to be retired. Wish I'd started 30 years ago!

I have a large collection of Ed Burak Connoisseurs. Also have a few each from various makers, my favorites being Rolando Negoita and Petersons (especially the 9BC, originals, not POY's).
