    Had a great thanksgiving, and found
    out that my father's father-in-law is
    a pipe smoker, and has been for many
    years! This 'old timer' has been through
    WWII, and has smoked since he was 19.
    He has several pipes, but only smokes
    SWR. He even uses his finger as a tamper!
    He'll be 90 this year, so I'll be putting in
    a TAD order for him for several pouches
    of SWR. Here we are (I'm on the left :rolleyes:)

    and a smoker for 71 years, any one else thinks quite a lot of this anti smoking lark might be over hyped or just made up?

    lol his father was how would you say it......quite a fiery individual when he wanted to be :P , if i caught my kid taking a few draws off my pipe (aslong he or she was old enough of course), i think i would be more intrigued that they took interest in my hobby lol.

    Grade school teachers please teach your students it's World War II. It is not World War Eleven!

    No, the anti's in the family would
    freak out!

    Seems most of his pipes are no name
    briars. To my knowledge, he doesn't
    own a cob, meer, or *gasp* Falcon!!

    Thanks for your post title. Now I have the Ramones song "Sheena Is A Punk Rocker" in my head, but using your title as lyrics. :confused:

    Cool story! And speaking of stories, I'll bet he has a ton of them. :th1:
