I actually walked a mile with the wife tonight. I had a rough time with getting bones to stretch out after laying up for a couple of weeks. The rib is doing much better. But, I still cough on the charring light, so it may be a while before I smoke. But, I've been thinking about popping a tin of Carter Hall open.
You can send me the loaded pipe and I'll do the charring light and return via UPS 1 day delivery. I'll handle the costs if you can figure out the logistics of keeping simmering in route.
Perhaps a neighbor or the dog could handle that.
Ask your spouse for a smoking helper monkey.
'Hate that feeling and hope you mend your rib and your lungs soon. Supposedly, tobacco smoke somewhat restricts the capillaries (smallest blood vessels) so it's good to let your body heal a day or two after the symptoms stop before smoking again. No pipe isn't much fun either. Speeding healing.
