Over the years, we have had several discussions of pipe and pipe smoking in the Members' Lounge. It is clear we have some pipe-philes who know and love their pipes and tobacco.
This morning's WSJ has an article on the surge in pipe smoking on American campuses dispite the universal global repression of the tobacco nazis. I started smoking pipes in college thirty-eight years ago.
A good pipe, some tasty tobacco, a good book, a couple of friendly spaniels snugged up, and some fine music continue to be my evening companions of choice. Pipes, pipe tobacco, and pipe collecting have led me many interesting places and introduced me to several life-long friends.
Below is a shot of the mantle behind my desk with part of my collection.
So sound off, and let's see yours!
