...of a pipe in public. I know it's crazy but other than an occasional "that smells nice" I've never actually had anyone stop to comment or converse about the pipe. Until yesterday that is! Me and a couple friends were at the Fonda Fair here in NY standing outside of one the buildings there where they had a band playing. First, this wasted looking dude comes up and says; "You want me to pack that for you?", I just gave him a glare and slightly shook my head, he walked away. Is what it is right? Anyway, a bit later in the evening I'm in the same spot smoking a bowl and this guy comes over, smokes a cig and before going back in he stops and strikes up a conversation about how he used to smoke a pipe and how you don't see pipe smokers anymore, (he said that about 3 times), he really liked my Dr. G. Grand Duke and told me so a couple of times. He said that he always imagined when he got old that he would sit on his porch in a nice comfy chair and just smoke a pipe. Pretty cool dude, well, enjoyed quite few bowls at the fair yesterday in that old Dr. G. stuffed full of 1864. Good times, good times. Anyway, I've got some Metal Church to listen to and some more forum to read, so that's my tale!
