Well this was a first for me. I was walking home from my weekly acupuncture session, swimming trunks in one hand, walking cane in the other and the MM Twain Cob with plum Forever Stem filled with Ashton Brindle Flake puffing away when this black Acura SUV pulled up and stopped. Inside was a mom and perhaps late teen, or just nudging 20, daughter who looks at me and asks "can it take your picture with you smoking your pipe?"

I said "uh, sure" and she whipped out her cellphone and snaps the shot. With the widest grin on her face she says "thank you very much." I told her she was welcome and they drove off. I noticed the plates were from NJ and wondered if they never saw anyone smoking a pipe in NJ.

Anyhow this is what she got.

Cripes! I only hope I don't end up on a T-shirt with my mug plastered on it saying I went to Maine and all I got was this T-shirt with some old fart on it smoking a pipe.

Interesting story Mr. Banjo. At least the Mom didn't start reading you the riot act for corrupting the chillin with your flagrant behaviour. Just think of the influence you might have left on those young and impressionable! Doesn't bear thinking about. Wink

btw that's a helluva nice cob in yer gob!

Cool



Cheers,

RR

Goddamoutastatuhs! At least they didn't ask, "Which way to Millinocket?" 'Course then you could have replied, "You can't get there from here." (Sorry, I couldn't figger out how to spell   h e r e phonetically in a Maine accent.)
