    Yes, it's that time of year again.

    Get out your favorite cap, stand in front of your favorite tree and show us how you keep it smoky, fishnbanjo style.

    Let's outdo ourselves from last year.

    Keepin' it smoky with some GLP Westminster in the Baraccini beater pipe.

    Where's the pics, gentlemen?

    Fishnbanjo Day without "keeping it smoky" pics is like Independence Day without fireworks...

    A fine selection of pipes, hats and mugs!

    Don't let the party end. Keep 'em coming through the weekend!

    I'll leave you with this for the night.

    It's fun to smoke at the Y.M.C.A.!

    Anthony, I could clench it, but it is heavy enough I would worry about a toothmark in that stem. I paid waaaaaay too much for that pipe to harm the stem. lol

    My problem is that although I do have a good jaw, my acrylic teeth aren't permanently attached to it, hench no clench.

    Teeth are acrylic now? Shoot. You could get a set with a pipe bit molded in permanently!

    But not Cumberland teeth. Eeeww!

    Keeping it smoky today with some of Russ O's SV-23 Perique Blend in my prized foggymountain Hilson Vintage Panel pipe. Sporting my favorite "welder's" cap. It stays on at 75mph and softens the blow of junebugs to the forehead.

    Ha ha, Jay you are a hat man for the ages! Here's one taken of me and a cob.

    After some time he felt for his pipe. It was not broken, and that was something. Then he felt for his pouch, and there was some tobacco in it, and that was something more. Then he felt for matches and he could not find any at all, and that shattered his hopes completely.

    This is fish

    This is banjo

    This is fishnbanjo, a respected elder on our forum with an incredible collection of smokers and an invaluable source of pipe lore and knowledge. He's also, at least virtually, a really nice guy. He may be a crazy man in real life, but we are uncertain...

    Here's my second attempt. Actually wearing a hat with a tree in the background.

    Smoking C&D Mad Fiddler Flake in a Savinelli Clark's Favorite.

    Do you check your image size and resolution? I uploaded my picture above as a 5" wide @ 72dpi. If I don't reduce the image size my pics would be monsters.

    Also, if using Windows, right click on the pic file and select edit from the menu.

    If MS Paint is on your system, it will open the file. Along one of the top rows, you should see a "Resize" button. Select that and you should be able to adjust size by entering a percentage in a box. Then save.

    Make sure the edit screen is maximized. You might not see the full array of buttons if the window is not full sized.

    Unfortunately I'm on both droid & vacation....

    This droid he is on, is this some new type of cleaning fluid? Anthony??

    Nice variety of pipes in here!

    Wrapped in my favorite "do-rag", a scarf from the ladies' section of the thrift store.
