    I just want to wish all the father's on PM a Happy Father's Day! I hope you all enjoy time with your kids, time with your father, sharing fond memories of your father or maybe it's time to pick up the phone and give the old man a call. This pipe is for you, fathers

    Ditto !

    I have good memories of my dad. I pray I am leaving mine with the same as well.

    Have a relaxing day all you dads out there ! And especially remember those single moms out there that play the role of dad.

    "The fact is, squire, the moment a man takes to a pipe, he becomes a philosopher. It's the poor man's friend; it calms the mind, soothes the temper, and makes a man patient under difficulties. It has made more good men, good husbands, kind masters, indulgent fathers, than any other blessed thing on this universal earth."

    Happy Father's Day to all. My Dad passed away in February and my brother sent me a picture of his new marker. Semper Fi, Pop.

    My dad quit smoking a pipe many years ago. Every time I am smoking around him he longs for a pipe. I think I will offer him one today.

    If you can't pack it, light it, and smoke it then why do it. It's a dieing art that must be rekindled in all of us as fortold by our forefathers.

    Words to live by for all pipe smokers.

    Happy Father's Day, gents.
    Papipepguy - I know how tough that first Father's Day without your dad is. Smoke a bowl for him, and enjoy the good memories.

    Peace in the hush of the twilight, balm ere my eyelids close

    @papipeguy: My first smoke, in my new fathers day pipe today, will be in honor of your father, John.

    A good pipe to all of you fathers out there!

    I'm fortunate, my Pap is still around. He'll be 93 in August. Here's a shot of us from last years Fathers Day. He's coming over for ribs & chicken this afternoon, along with one of my two daughters. I miss the one in New Orleans, so if your kids or dad is close by - give them a hug and don't take them for granted.

    Here is a picture of the most important man I ever had in my life. J. Willis Eisenhuth, my maternal Grandfather was born in 1899 and lived until 1981. He taught me many things as a young boy that I am quite fortunate to have learned. Jake as he was affectionately called is missed by sisters and me. I think fondly of him everyday. My father was not around so Grampa took over. this is a picture of him working at the Saint Clair Coal Company in PA. He was the Weighmaster and Head Clerk. Oh, the stories he told!!!!

    My dad is still around, his birthday is also today, he doesn't smoke pipes anymore unfortunately but he has taught me so much and still is about love life respect right from wrong, he has taught me to shoot straight, how to drive and build with my hands. I thank god everyday I get to spend with him. Everyone says I look like him. Smoked a bowl in honor of my grandfather who passed away in 2002,
    God bless,
    Gunnar

    Happy Father's Day to the Marine that knew exactly what a Senior Drill Instructors belt was for... (lessons I'll never forget.)
    Who taught me to finish a fight but never to start one, to fish, to smoke my pipe, to be a good father and grand father and husband.
    "The Old Guns" has never smiled in a photo, but knows how to bring tears of laughter to everyone while remaining just as obstinate as ever.
    And loves babies.

    Happy Pappy's Day Great Grand Daddy!

    Great Grand Daddy and Vincent on his birthday.

    Happy Father's Day to all.

    That's my dad. He's an old pipester!

    Here is three generations of us. Pictures taken Memorial Day 2012 at my dad's place in Lorain, Ohio. That's Lake Erie in the background.

    I got up this morning and there wasn't a thread so I thought I'd take the initiative. That's my dad with me in my profile pic. I saw my mom's dad for breakfast today and went to the cemetery after to visit with my dad's dad, and my dad's grandfathers. Busy day. We're grilling now that my dad is home from work. Happy father's day again to everyone!

    Happy Fathers Day to all. My dad passed in 1998 and he is missed. I had my 4 kids with me so it was a great day.

    Happy Father’s Day. I am sitting with coffee and Stanwell HCA churchwarden and enjoying a bowl of Frogmorton On The Town. Froggie jarred in 2018 when as a new pipe smoker I almost got rid of it because I didn’t like English blends. Omg! The horror of almost making that mistake! Lucky for me my tobacconists told me by a few of these and I did!

    What’s your special reserve smoke for these occasions?

    Have a fantastic day!
