    I just "pulled the trigger" on a new pouch of Granger (the old one is running low and I don't know if I'll find it in my new town) and a pouch of Kentucky Club (never tried it, always wanted to, don't know if I'll find it in the new place)

    All things considered I got two pouches of tobacco and a pack of matches for about $7.50 :th1:

    I smoked them for several year back in my cowboy days. Of course, they were the white pack with red bullseye. (IOW, I ain't that old.) I gave 'em up (with a couple of relapses) 43 years ago when I got married. What really sealed the deal was watching my dad suffer for several years with emphysema and lung cancer and die at age 59.

    For several years, I'd have dreams about Lucky's. I really liked them. If I smoked one now, it would knock me on my rear.

    That's an unopened pack. Probably turned to dust by now.

    My grandfather smoked Lucky Strikes. I remember the smell of them well.

    I still smoke Lucky Strike. Before that I used to smoke Dunhill, but Lucky Strike kind of got stuck to me for the last 7 - 8 years.
    It is not the same taste as it was before 2002, when they reinvented Lucky Strike, but still tastes pretty sweet.

    My father smoked Lucky Strike and back when I started smoking, it was what I smoked because they were easily obtainable :whis:

    Bought a brass tamper.

    As for Lucky Strikes....and cigarettes in general....when they started making them fire safe they tasted bad and hurt my lungs.

    My last pipe related purchase was half a dozen boxes of Diamond kitchen strike anywhere matches. I am going to pick up tubs of SWR and PA this weekend.

    I've been enjoying some of the Newminster line and have been wanting to try so more. Well, stopped by the nearest B&M. Looks like they didn't care to actually stock the tobacco so they took some samples from a vendor or pipe show, slapped a price tag on, and put them on the shelf.

    Based on a few visits I'll never stop by that shop again, but I've at least added the Imperial Nougat and Denmark Pipe Cut to the stash to try.
