Any pipe smokers?

    I've taken to sitting in the back porch, in a rocker, smoking a pipe, and watching the girls.

    I have a tobacconist nearby that sells "local" blends, as well cigars, and they've recently started a bar... I've enjoyed a few of their concoctions while watching the sun set and the chooks peck and scratch.

    My favorite pipe is a briar, bent Apple shaped with a coarse finish. Although I do have a straight, smooth with a waxed finish which I also enjoy.

    Any thoughts?

    I haven't yet in my life but I see it in my future...sitting on the porch on a chilly fall day with an aromatic pipe. Sounds like a peaceful experience. My dad was a pipe smoker at an early stage in his life and I have his pipes. Might just give it a try!

    It really is... Kicking back, watching the sun dip below the horizon, enjoying your beverage of choice. For me, some nights it's tea, if it's hot a cold beer, other times a dram of scotch.
    If not, let me know. I'm an estate pipe refinisher in the reeds and would love to expand my collection.

    Void where prohibited.
    There's just nothing like filling your bowl with your favorite smoke, sitting back, and enjoying profound thoughts!
