I felt like griping a bit. Many of you already know I'm a new pipe smoker. I just got in the mail a beautiful unsmoked Stanwell 2007 pipe of the year (straight Rhodesian smooth)along with some Mac Barens Navy Flake (will be my first time trying a flake). Unfortunately, just as it arrived I came down with bronchitis. Alas, now all I can do is stare longingly at my beloved beauties, and dream of smoking days past. It has become a double edged sword as well because my lack of smoking has perked up my PAD. Oh well. A week or two and I'll get to puff once again.
