Alas, even with my best attempts to avoid this, I successfully burned a hole in one of my shirts. I thought I had seen an ember fly while sitting on the patio (and a brief gust of wind crossed my face), but couldn't spot anything. When I returned inside however, I found a pencil eraser sized hole in my tee. Guess I need to be more diligent about wind caps if there is a potential breeze. Now this shirt will be relegated to the pj pile until it further deteriorates.

What's the worst you've done?

Hole in a new jacket, near the zipper. It may have been from a pipe or campfire.

Actually just today: Indoors. Shirtless. Directly in front of the fan. I'm missing some chest hair now.

Ouch! affraid

I wear a green vest to conceal my steel from innocent eyes. It has a hole on the right side near the zipper. Bummer. That vest is the only thing I almost look decent in. Sad

Been there, done that. A couple of holes in an old hooded sweatshirt - the one I usually wear in the fall while sitting outside and smoking while enjoying a fire in the fire pit. My wife and daughter roasted S'mores and I got an occasional hot ember (from the pipe) roasting a hold the arm of my sweatshirt.

It does seem like deeper bowls are better at preventing this...

I dropped an ash on the keyboard of my MacBook. It hit the comma key which I use often on AutoCad. I really have to hit the key in the right spot now for it to register. ,,,,,,,,,, <---This darn key requires me to slow down and work it with a rocking motion. I wonder if the Apple Geniuses can repair just one key?

Wool cap. Wind picked up a bunch of embers, set one down right on the lip of one of my nicer driver caps. Neutral I have another shirt, a hack-sleeved western button-up (one with super cool silver threads in it) that's a burn magnet. Campfires, pipes, other people's pipes... Swiss cheese from holes.

And I thought I smelled a brush fire over here near the Flint area. clown

Well I ruined my favorite pair of wranglers. These had been with me for years and like a good pair of wranglers(feedstore not walmart), they had been a good to me and I had been smoking on my couch when I picked some ash right out on to them, the hole didn't burn through, but they were my good wearing around wranglers so it was still a loss.

Since picking back up the pipe several years ago I've burned way many holes in my sweatshirts, sweatpants, carpet, and even have a burn hole in the kitchen counter and linoleum by the front door!

Careless and clumsy, that's me all over.... D'oh!!

Suspect



Cheers,

RR

PINK boxers ? Razz That not withstanding, I have so many holes in jackets, coats, shirts, and pants from all the years of pipe smoking I don't really give it much thought. Sort of goes with the territory so to speak Razz

The only one I can account for so far is a hat.

Unfortunately it's a really nice wool Kangol driver's cap that my sister bought me. One of the risks of smoking outdoors on a breezy brisk January night.

"& the inevitable pin-hole burns, all down the front of my favorite satin shirt."

I think it appropriate for that tee shirt to spend the rest of it's days as a pipe polisher.

My worst was foolishly keeping strike anywhere matches in my front pocket. Sure enough they ignited one day ruining my pants and my leg.

I guess, I have been pretty fortunate. No real casualties to speak of. I'm sure that means I will set myself on fire this evening.
