    We all had to start from scratch somewhere at one time....
    I was cleaning out my hard drive of old pics and I stumbled across this pic.
    Brought back some fond memories. My very first pipe purchase.

    Anyone have any pics they'd like to share when they first started out?

    To this day, I still smoke Enrinmore Flake and Mixture as well as Capt. Black Royal from time to time.

    As much as I loathe the taste of Erinmore, you were miles ahead of me when I started. I wish I could remember who made that "southern birch flavor" OTC I was squeaking on. Then again, if I knew, I might be tempted to become nostalgic! :D

    I've posted this before, but here's one of the Bride and me in Florida...1966, when we first got together.
    That's a Carey freehand in my paw, and was pro'lly filled with Borkum Riff Rum or Cap'n Black.

    What's the pipe? Peterson Premier? Pretty nice start, if so.
