Not long ago I found myself on the boardwalk at Bossier City, La. There are lots of trendy shops there and lots of people. It was a beautiful day. You're allowed to smoke there so I fired up my pipe. I took a seat on one of the park benches and proceeded to 'watch the world go by'.I was pleasantly surprised at many of the reactions of the people who noticed my pipe. Several little children saw my pipe and smiled at me. Smiled at me! One couple closer to my age asked me to take a picture of them with their camera. There was a hundred people there, but they picked me! There were no glares no looks of disapproval. So, at 61 I'm not trying to impress anyone. When children smile at what you're doing it can't be all bad. Let us always conduct ourselves as ladies and gentlemen. Yes,I felt special! Be well.
