Hi, I just joined and I have learned a lot already from reading around in the forum. I was just wondering if there are any other women smokers represented here. I have only been smoking a pipe for about a month and a half after a lo-o-o-ong time smoking cigarettes. Boy, is there a lot to learn. But I love it. I am currently just smoking a Missouri Meerschaum until I find a pipe I really like. But it does the job ok for now. I have been looking at estate pipes on ebay. There are some really nice ones but they always seem to jump out of my price range. I think patience is the key here! Well, it's really nice to be here and I hope to learn a whole lot more.
