Turned 74 today. Have come to the conclusion I have leaves I will never get round to in the time remaining to me. Thus, I want to get rid of stuff. Specially since I keep on buying.

Thus, here are two unopened pounds of WLT Dominican Seco. IIRC, they are Cibao Valley. Not a thing wrong with them at all... just I never use them. :

173353

Followed by a pound of WLT Corojo Oscuro wrapper which does not look dark despite its name:
173354

Capped off with three hands of DRY wrapper from FX Smith's Sons. The bag says "Indo" but it looks like CT Shade: It was never properly packaged in mylar the way that WLT does, so it will take some dampening before use.
173355

Which, unfortunately, fills up the box.

Box weighs in at 4lbs and 14 oz.

Someone suggested I should send to an experienced roller this time round, as I always gift newbs. So why not... If you are a roller of some experience and would put this leaf to good use, then I would like to send you a birthday gift. PM me your addy. No recompense required. If I get several PMs, then I will draw one or possibly cook up another box.

Hello there. Happy birthday, man. Wish you all the best. My father turned 67 a few days ago. You know, I’ve never seen him being so happy. When I asked him like dad, why are you so happy today, he answered, son, why shouldn’t I be? That is called happiness, I guess. I bought him a gin gift as a birthday present. He’s a great fan of gin&tonic cocktail, so he was happy about the present. So, I wish to stay happy, man. Only happiness drives us. Best wishes. Hope I’ll hear from you soon. Good luck.

Did you find a taker for your offer? If not, I would be interested.

Am I right that this is not your first charity event? You said you always gift to newbies, and it really sounds like charity. I have met a few people who know how to properly use such good gifts. I have a coffee shop and gave each new barista a package of good coffee. I stopped doing this when I saw one of the new employees accidentally spill coffee beans on the street and didn't hesitate to throw it in the nearest bin, even though there were still beans in it. Since then, if I want to express sympathy to an employee, I prefer to order a printed cup from https://www.giftlab.com/.
