Default Pumkin spice mounts

Well it's that time of the year when those of us who have pipes of a certain age that have mounts which have "mellowed" to a soft, orange patina, can be among the hip, stylish ones wit "Pumpkin Spice" mounts.

I think today’s Martha hipsters might refer to them as Butternut Squash

A set of gorgeous, NOS Lawries will
be on offer on the TP soon.

Just in time.

There's nothing like the shriek of a
DE-tuned pipe from the bushes, to
stir the creepy imagination.

Excellent idea. For the next month: pumpkin spice. (The other 11 months of the year they will continue to be referred to as cheddar cheese. Extra sharp.)

Did I miss them?

What does NOS stand for? Not On Sale? Never On Sunday? Nawlins Old School?

I always understood it to mean "New, Old Stock", as in: old but in unused condition.

NOS is "New Old Stock"

These are NEW, as far as I can tell, but not
entirely original (HOW, you ask?) They came
to me with a missing tenor bottom... it was
recently (and brilliantly) replaced by Rick
at Dunbar's. The hide bag had never been
seasoned.

No, you haven't missed the offering. With the
joints now re-done (the very original hemp was
dry and loose) the test drive will be tomorrow.

TP posting to come soon.

Are the Lawries still to be listed on the TP?

Yes, and my apologies, had to
delay again...

Two weeks with a failing and
elderly pet have taken me off
line with several projects.

(Now he's looking up a bit, but
it will be one more "tomorrow"
at least.)

There's a 2nd Lawrie in nearly
as nice shape that's owned by
our Band/Corporation. It may
well go up in the same posting.
