James Crawford Thom is an artist, a few branches up in our family tree. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Crawford_Thom We also have some nuts in the tree but we're not discussing them right now. My Dad discovered some old photos of him a while ago and I loved them, mostly because they look old and cool and they are playing acoustic instruments. I eventually got a copy of one and hung it in my office at work. It recently dawned on me that he is smoking a pipe in the picture. I took a picture of the picture, pretty bad quality, but here are some of my pipe roots. J.C. is in the middle. Any other pipe roots caught on camera out there?
