    My daughter just turned 20 yesterday. She came over to the house, she moved out young like I did, free spirit. She didn't know I had started smoking a pipe, so I was showing her my pipe collection and my modest cellar of tobacco. She went through the jars curiously, removing the lids and smelling them, informing me of which ones she liked and didn't. Finally after going through my collection she says "let's smoke one". I said you want to smoke one? She said "yeah". So, I let her pick out which blend she wanted and she chose a local B&M house blend, named Black and Blue, which is a very mild rum aro. I went through my pipes and found the Savinelli Bulldog that I normally smoke that blend in and handed it to her. I got out my trusty Peterson 302 system and grabbed some Dark Rum from the same B&M. We went out on the porch and I taught her how to fill the pipe and how to light it with a kitchen match, explaining to her this is the best way for proper taste. We then sat on the porch for an hour and a half smoking and talking about life. It was really a wonderful time. It was also the first time I had ever smoked a pipe with someone else. She smoked the whole bowl and did very well. It was quite an unusual and very rewarding time spent with her. I told her all the ins and outs of pipe smoking that I know, which is very limited. We had a wonderful time.

    Very cool, David! Maybe your daughter will pick up the hobby, and you two will have many good times smoking together.:bing:

    Awesome. I am gonna try to convince my daughter. heh

    Come to think of it, I never smoked a pie with another pipe smoker.
    Going to change that this weekend when a fellow cigar smoker comes over. Getting him a MM cob and going to convert him.

    Lol. Now that you mention it, neither have I. Maybe some Boswells' Berry Cobbler would suffice......:ohyh:

    Very Cool....
    I look forward to the day that I can smoke with my son but he is only eleven and hates the smell which is good for now. I can wait, it will be fun to share the time and experience together when he's 20ish.

    Pipe smoking with girls that age is cool. My 20 yr old daughter smokes a small Nording and digs it when it's "relax time". Of course, I load her up with leaf...... :whis:

    Cool! So, I bet you know something to stuff her stocking with later on......

    Wonderful! I hope that when my young ones are of age, they will join me (away from their mother's dissaproving glare).

    That is so awesome, spending quality time with your daughter and enjoying a smoke together. I'm trying to convince my gf to try pipe smoking. Not having much luck with it though.
