So I stood there motionlessness, breathless with mouth open gasping for air, and eyes gazing wildly at the package received from knokmdwn... like Vincent Vega staring at the glowing suitcase in Pulp Fiction... but with angelic "aaaahh's" singing in the background. My wife smacks me in the back of the head (like she so often does to bring me back to my senses) and asks "So what are you going to do now???" I gather my strength to mumble quietly, "Take the rest of the day off, have a drink, and enjoy a cigar!!!

aah... that was Friday!

As instructed I sent what I thought to be a basic Cbid 5er based on instructions and the preferred list supplied by the man. I can not accept any kudos for what was sent. Plus I received a tip from Nicar on a smoke the man prefers (yeah thanks for the help there buddy). But obviously I need to take the next Cbid Math 101 class that is available as I don't have a clue as to the new math this FOG uses:

knokmdwn overwhelmed/pummeled then beat me with the following:

• Arturo Fuente Chateau Fuente King T (7.0 x 49)
• Ashton VSG Robusto (5.5 x 50)
• Bolivar Gold Label Lonsdales* (6.5 x 42)
• CAO La Traviata Radiante (6.0 x 52)

• Gurkha Royal Brigade Perfecto (6.0 x 60)
• Gurkha Titan Maduro (6.2 x 56)
• La Aroma De Cuba Immensa (5.5 x 60)
• La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor Robusto (5.0 x 50)
• La Aurora Preferidos Tubos Gold Corojo (5.0 x 54)
• La Aurora Preferidos Tubos Sapphire Connecticut (5.0 x 54)
• La Riqueza by Tatuje Lonsdale (6.5 x 42)
• Liga Privada T52 Toro (6.0 x 52)
• Mi Barrio El Billetero (5.7 x 52)
• My Father No. 2 Belicoso (5.2 x 54)
• Oliva Master Blends III Double Robusto (5.0 x 54)
• Oliva Serie 'G' Torpedo (box-press) (6.5 x 52)
• Oliva Serie 'O' Maduro Perfecto (5.5 x 55)
• Oliva Serie 'V' Double Robusto (5.0 x 54)
• Oliva V Lancero (7.0 x 38)
• Padilla Achilles Edicion Especial 2006 Torpedo (6.0 x 54)
• Padilla Habano Toro (6.0 x 54)
• Padilla Signature 1932 Torpedo (6.5 x 52)
• Ramon Allones Habana Small Club Coronas* (4.3 x 42)
• Rocky Patel Cameroon Especial Torpedo (5.5 x 50) - delicate Cameroon wrapper
• Romeo y Julieta Habana Coronitas en Cedro* (5.0 x 43)
• Taboo Limited Reserve Torpedo Maduro (6.1 x 52)
• Tatuaje 7th Reserva (5.5 x 46)
• Viaje Exclusivo EJS (4.7 x 52) - only 100 jars of 35 made
• Viaje Fifty Fifty Black No 2 (6.0 x 50)
* Those marked should not need any further clarification

PLUS
• Glenfiddich 15 yr old
• Saint Brendan’s Irish Creme (wife loves this with her flavored smokes)
• Maker’s Mark
• Cigar Savor single torch lighter with punch cutter
• Tatuaje guillotine cutter
• Henry Clay Sugar-Free Mint Especial Tin
• Cain Straight Ligero branded 3.1" wooden matches


Sir, as I've said many times, I am completely overwhelmed by your generosity and hospitality to the forum. I can honestly say I have not had any of the smokes provided. I look forward to the adventure of traveling through the entire collection offered and enjoying each and every one of them.

I look forward to the education.
Thank you sincerely again knokmdwn


PS: Another thanks to FGM for coordinating the Vet-to-NOOB Trade. Never thought I would thank a man for wearing a thong... but I'm afraid to say the favor will have to be returned in time in the way of a "Finder’s Fee". It's the least I can do for respecting my concerns about wanting to avoid such a bomb as this. Damn you.



My wife smacks me in the back of the head again and asks "Now what did you get yourself into???"
I mumble quietly through a thick cloud of smoke, "I don't know!!! But it’s fun!!!"

Ray was kinda an unofficial vet to me... When the new system went in place, a bunch of members got deleted, including knokmdwn and muhren and many others...

I still see him on the fb from time to time... He's crazy good with a shotgun!
