PostSubject: Hello from Hertfordshire   Tue Nov 22, 2011 7:06 am

Greetings. I've just discovered this forum by chance, while googling. I'm also a member of Smokers Forums. I'm a 60-year-old Brit living in Hemel Hempstead, and came back to pipe-smoking in February 2011 after a 20-odd year gap, having been a piper in the 70s and 80s. Favourite tobaccos at the moment: 'Punchbowle', Rattray's 'High Society', 'Presbyterian', Ashton's 'Rainy Day', Sam Gawith's 'Commonwealth Mixture', and my own blend of Goldleaf Virginia, Cavendish, Latakia, and Perique.

Howdy, Steve. Returner to the pipe after I abandoned it in my early twenties to quit all tobacco...it was easier. Now that I relinquished all smoking habits, I can go back and do it properly. Cool It's much more fun than I remember it--better pipes and tobacco notwithstanding. Laughing

Welcome to the Brotherhood. I too smoked a pipe in the 70's and 80's and then gave it up for some long forgotten reason. I just returned to the pleasures of the pipe this summer and am enjoying it more than ever. Stop by often.

Thanks for the welcomes - I certainly intend to stick around. Yet more recent returners to the pipe here, I see - I'm glad it's not just me!

Hello Steve and welcome. I've an affinity for your green and pleasant country. Been there some dozen or more times. One of my oldest mates was born and raised in the Herts/Worcs area, now living near Halifax (God save us from Hell, Hull, and Halifax)!

Cool



Cheers,

RR

Welcome, Steve,

And yes, there seems to be an increasing number of returning puffers. Perhaps it's the stressful times we live in, and our recalling the peace and refuge a simple bowl of good tobacco can give?

Please join in and share your thoughts and experiences.
