Howdy all. Greetings from wild and wonderful West (by God) Verginny.
I lurked for a while to get to know a few of the posters here, and decided it was about time to come out of hiding and join in with my fellow pipe enthusiasts.
I'm an aspiring Speculative Fiction writer, although I have done a few short stories and provided a bit of web content, as well as an all around joker when the mood takes me.
I've smoked a pipe off and on since the 70s, and I do believe I'm back to a pipe for good.
BTW: Yes, that is me in the pic. Yes, my hair is actually that long. No, I'm not balding; I just like the hat. No, that isn't a fancy straight jacket, (although my wife says I need one), it is a western vest. And YES, I am very happy to make your acquaintance.
Now that you all know I really am off my rocker, I hope to get to know as many of you as I can better.
Have a good one, Gang.
