Tobacco being an expense and not having gotten any unemployment for the last five weeks.
This morning I was reduced to digging out a relic, my dad’s pipe and a bag of tobacco.
Fortunate for me my son-in-law has better taste in pipe tobacco then dad did and the bag was left by my son-in-law.
The pipe really is a relic, twenty years ago my dad had broken his pipe and I was smoking a pipe then.
So I had given him one of mine, since I had about ten different pipes I was really into smoking a pipe!
Well this morning I load the pipe and started to light it when I noticed I was having trouble.
The bowl seemed out of line and turning away from me.
I finally took it from my mouth and looked it over, dad had done his remodel on it!
He liked straight stem and I like to have a downward bend, he had done some craving and then taped it to suit him. The problem was he was right handed and I am left handed.
Being in my right mind often sets me at the mirror image of how everyone else does things.
Left justified instead of right justified, once I moved the pipe to the other side of my mouth everything seem to line up just fine.
Does that ever happen to you, something that once belonged to a parent and it was passed down.
But it brings out a difference between you and them?
