    At age 102, she found one. I bet the tea and whiskey are next. :puffy:

    "... she finally stopped the habit because her family was worried that falling ash would set her house on fire."

    Sounds like a reasonable age to contemplate giving up at least one bad habit.....but good Lord, not smoking!

    She should take up the pipe. Harder for the ash to fall and do some damage.....

    I'm not sure that's accurate. Am I the only one that occasionally talks with the pipe clinched and end up blowing ash out of the bowl? Never did that with a cigarette.
