    My son Nick had their first baby last night...a whopping 9lb, 5 oz boy. I am officially OLD

    Nick with his son

    Me with Grandson

    Already chewing his fingernails off worrying about what kind of world he's gotten himself in to.

    Earth: The Insane Asylum of the Universe. Nowhere else could things be more messed up.

    Does a culture based on separation and competition, of scientific sophistication and mideval religion, offer happiness even as it ravishes the Earth that sustains it?

    Congratulation grandpa!
    Wishing you and your family the best as you bring this new life into our world and teach him how to be the best he can be. My next bowl will go out to the well being of your grandson.
    Congratulations once again!

    "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am The Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you."

    Did you guys light up some cigars?

    One of my friends will be having a child soon. And I'm in charge of the smokes.

    I've narrowed it down to something from Alec Bradley. Either Black Market, or Tempus. They both look/sound so good!

    No cigars yet, but will definitely dedicate a large bowl of Penzance in his honor.

    He's contemplating which blend will be his favorite.

    Yes, that's the one thing I remember about my Grandfather, as he had one chair that he always sat in and leaned over the foot stool where he played countless games of Solitaire while smoking his pipes, and luckily I found his pipes after 50 years.

    You know what ..just buy a great looking dream pipe,preferably a Poul winslow or frank axemacher, to be given to him at his 18th b-day.. and keep it secret until that day..If he is into pipes already when he is 18 just give him that pipe..

    Nice, congrats!

    I know what I need, smoke, I can't recall the last time I tasted it....Gandalf in the mines of Moria.

    "we shall have to share pipes, as good friends must at a pinch'....'I keep a treasure or two near my skin, as precious as rings to me. Here's one: my old wooden pipe. And here's another an unused one...He held up a small pipe with a wide flattened bowl, and handed it to Gimli. 'Does that settle the score between us', said Merry. 'Most noble hobbit, it leaves me deep in your debt."

    Congratulations man !

    Already chewing his fingernails off worrying about what kind of world he's gotten himself in to.

    Or in that pic he's shoving his hand in his mouth to stop from screaming "WHO is this dude holding me !!! Get me away from him"

    In all seriousness... congrats.. it does makes us feel old doesn't it I'm on 5 grandkids by now..

    My grandfather died in 1969, well before I was born. He used to smoke Amphora, from what I've heard.

    I know what you mean whitebriar, I wish someone had to think about saving his pipes...

    I've got his Hohner accordion, though, and it is a wonderful keepsake. I just had it restored this past year.

    You are very lucky to have had them kept in a safe place, hobie! They are looking great.
