Well guys, I just wrote up a HELLO! post talking about myself and my Uncle who smoked a pipe, carrying it thru the Normandy invasion up till 11 years ago when he passed, but I hit the darn backwards somehow and lost it all. I ain't typing it all again. Mad Embarassed

I''ll sum it up, if that's ok with you guys... My Uncle Teddy was a great guy. He lived next door to us and always had his pipe with him. I have fond memories of sitting in his backyard while he smoked, talking about anything or nothing Smile or him helping me work on my car or around the house or yard. I guess that's why I want to smoke a pipe now. He seemed so calm and comfortable and whether that had anything to do with the pipe, I don't know, but maybe it did. So I just picked up my first pipe, a Savinelli Chamgpagne 606KS estate. I posted a little writeup in the Pipe Techniques forum about its cleaning adventure. Maybe I can help a fellow newbie out the way you guys helped me when I was looking for cleaning information here. Gotta go eat now. Lunch is burning. BTW, I don't have a tobacco picked yet but I'm leaning towards a local Smoker's Haven blend called "Ave's Fave" named after the owner, Ave. We shall see. See you all on the boards.

Welcome to BoB. It is very cool that you have pipe smoking memories down through your lineage. It definitely is a relaxing thing to do, allows one to sit back and just sip at the tobacco instead of puffing incessantly at a cig. Enjoy your time here.
