    My Fellow Pipe Smokers

    I officially have a new favourite pipe! My mother and father decided to bless me with an 8 inch churchwarden forever stem. I now fully understand why nobody's ever said a disparaging word about a forever stem. Thank you all for pointing me in the direction of them.

    Happy Smoking

    Lucky you Arty! I wish my parents showed interest in my hobby to where they would buy me a forever stem, unfortunately they don't even know what a forever stem is!

    Happy smoking!

    I will tomorrow. I didn't feel like getting out my camera and going though all that jazz tonight.

    Wow, what a nice combo! What do you think of the smoke? do you find that it is cooler?

    Yes! It's much cooler! I brought in several big puffs last night and thought my pipe had almost gone out because there was so little heat, only to be surprised when I puffed out and there was a HUGE cloud of smoke! :) I'm excited about it. I would recommend it to anybody. :)

    So I've discovered a problem. Because this General is straight and not bent, and my churchwarden stem is curved, if I hold the pipe straight out the stem angles slightly downward to where it meets my mouth. Today, while I was smoking, enjoying International Pipe Smoking Day with my cousin, I puffed, and much to my dismay got a mouthful of tar tasting spit. BLECH! I was not happy about this. I'll probably order a bent General here soon, or maybe a bent diplomat as the General is somewhat of a giant to smoke.

    Lessons still to learn
    Arty

    PstScrpt I hope everybody is enjoying International Pipe Smoking Day! :D
