A Unique Birthday Gift
I celebrated my birthday this week and was surprised by my 15 year old nephew with the following poem. I also received a pipe (a Caminetto, rusticated,full bent) but the poem trumps it all.
Has many pipes
Every day a different type
So many that you have to wonder if they are all real
Enough to smoke for a year straight
Some may say it is his fate
Knows all there is to know about them
From the bowl to the stem
Each one has a different scent
Tobacco of the past
Smoked until the last
Each with a history of its own
Keeps most at his home
Each unique in its own special way
Especially the ones he buys used, on eBay
It's hard to soar like an eagle when you work with pigeons.
That is great!! Loves his unkle
Good one. Happy birthday, uncle Mike!
Vary good! Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday, Mike
Your nephew must be a great and thoughtful kid.
Congrats to you
That is an awesome poem and a great gesture. Happy birthday by the way.
Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.
Wow, great poem. Perhaps a good starter pipe & tobacco would be just the gift for him on his 18th.

Touching how your nephew made such astute observations and loves his uncle.
Happy Birthday, Mike!
Enjoy the poem, your nephew and your new pipe!

Memories are made of this. Happy Birthday!
Happy Birthday Uncle Mike!
Happy Birthday Mike! Your nephew knows you pretty well, that should be pretty flattering.
Kids got skills! Happy birthday!
As long as I got a pipe full of baccy and a nose full of snuff, I'm a happy camper
Cigarettes are an addiction, cigars are a hobby, pipes are a religion
Happy Birthday! What a great kid!
A smile will always keep them guessing.

Great idea. Thanks for all your good wishes, gents.
15 year old genius, Happy birthday
