Got a box in the mail today. Judging from the size, I guessed I'd just gotten some pipe books from my former-pipe-smoker father. I was right, there were some pipe books. There were also these: There's only the one tin of Raven's, but there are six of the Red Ribbon, all 1983. (The Raven's is a 2001.) One of the Ribbons had a dent in the side, so I opened it to make sure it's alright (naturally). You know what? It's just fine. Like, real fine, man. Smoooooooth. So, now I don't know what the heck to do with 'em. I don't remember liking Raven's Wing very much back when a person could easily get it (the price sticker on it says "$7.90," remember those days?), so maybe I should just frame it and hang it on the wall or something. I can envision smoking the Ribbon, but I don't know if I would feel right about depriving my brethren and sistren of the briar by being greedy about it. I'll have to do some careful ethical reflecting, I guess.
