    Hi guys happy Father's Day!!!
    I received a Dunhill Bruyere Churchwarden yesterday and just smoked a bowl of Davidoff Sweet Mixture with it. Smoke is so cool and sweet and the aroma becomes so much more complex.
    Still have to get used to it since the bowl is pointing outwards when puffing and I could not see where the lighter flame lands......tobacco was lit a bit unevenly.
    Cheers
    Allan

    Willy, my five year old, woke me up this morning and excitedly told me that I had to come to the living room because "You gots to smoke your pipe for Father's Day." I figured he just couldn't keep a secret and I had a pouch of tobacco. (I would have been happy with a pouch of SWR as a father's day present). But I was wrong. A new smoking chair was awaiting me - a black leather Stratolounger, Tailgater edition, recliner. It's got a back massage feature, a storage container under one of the arm rests, and a beverage cooler under the other. (The beverage cooler is more like a camping cooler, can hold four cans of beer or soda, and uses a freezer pack to keep it cold - came with a coozy, too).

    Willy excitedly explained all the features to me, but for some reason he got it in his head that the massage feature was an "estersize machine." He, of course, had to sit with me and show me how to push the buttons. I've already had my first cup of coffee and finished off the last of the tin of GAF. I'd say this has been a pretty good Father's Day.

    Great gift RTO.

    Mine is a little strange... Joy and I were married on 6/17/1972... Today is our 40th anniversary. I bought her rubys... Lets leave it at that...
    Our daughter and granddaughter brought a strawberry "poke" cake for us. We will enjoy every morsel...
    I think, in this time, 40 years is unheard of...
    May we have 20 more.................. ted
