I just found out that both of my grandfathers had been pipe smokers. I didn't think anyone in my family had dabbled in pipery. The cool thing is there is a possibility that I may even be able to track down one of the pipes they smoked. My mother's mother likes to hang on to old things (nicer than saying pack rat, but I could say that cuz I r one) and I've just written her and asked if she happened to know anything about his pipe or if she could find it. My grandfather died when I was a teenager and he must have quit smoking way before my time, because I never saw or heard anything about it. I do however, know what it looks like from an old photo that my mom sent me. It was taken when my grandfather was an undergrad at Clemson in the 40's. Don't suppose anyone has magical powers and recognizes the type of pipe that is do you? B) My guess is maybe a Grabow starfire apple. I just think it's cool to see my grandfather with a pipe in his teeth.
