Just wondering if some here have stories about pipe smoking they could
could post.I think it would make for interesting reading.....Once when
I was visiting a smoke shop an elderly lady came in and bought a
couple ounces of pipe tobacco.I don't often see elderly ladies buying
pipe tobacco.Being curious I asked the fella behind the counter if he
knew who she bought it for.He explained that her husband smoked that
blend for years before he passed away.Then he said that she buys
tobacco each month.She keeps it in a bowl on the table to remind her
of him.Each month she replaces it with fresh for the smell.That was
years ago.I'm sure that this lady has passed on by now.I've always
remembered the story though.That kind of love is hard to find.
It's odd that you mention the pipe related stories thread idea. I had the very same thought the other day and just forgot to post anything.
Once I was at my local B&M and a middle aged lady came in and inquired about buying some 1Q for her boyfriend who was working in California. She said it was his favorite and she was going to send it to him since he couldn't find it where he was. When the tobacconist asked how much she wanted, she said "how much you got?" She walked away that day with five pounds of 1Q and about $120 poorer, if I recall correctly.
A couple weeks ago I was in Florida for my sister's wedding. The hotel my brother and I were staying at, as well as the wedding location, was in a very cool 'old time' community on the beach. The buildings and shops were very unique and very cool to walk around in. It was like an old village style. I had with me my Murray beach cruiser bike. So during the day before the wedding, I went off riding my bike armed with a Jobey Band bent pipe with orange pearlized lucite stem, some SG BBF, and my blue newsboy hat to hide my greasy hair. I rode my bike to the Starbucks to get a muffin and a water. I kick-standed my bike and headed for the coffee shop. A lady stopped me and said "I noticed you're smoking a pipe. What part of Europe are you from?" A bit stunned, I replied "Louisiana." Much to my dismay, my reply caused her to lose interest very quickly. I got a pretty good kick out of it, though.
Cool thread. I'm looking forward to reading other stories.
