PostSubject: Remembering Pipetongue aka Ken   Fri Dec 14, 2012 10:13 am

Woke up this morning thinking about the old boy.
Decided to smoke a bowl of GH&Co Dark Flake Unscented he had sent me.
Very Happy

Kinda dreamy right now so pardon if I'm less than fluent.
Ken was good people. No, Ken was even better than good people.

You know this Shadow guy running around? He's good people... Ken did the same thing with explicit directions not to tell a soul.

Ken battled some physical, mental, and financial demons daily. He was sick for along time. The medicines he was supposed to be on cost a fortune. Yet every secret Santa, every box pass, every random bombing he joyfully gave. When I was drawing Ken on secret Santa I knew whoever got him was getting a pipe And 6-8-10 year old premium tobacco.

He didn't type much but when he did people listened. I imagine he had the same quality IRL. I miss the old boy. Lol guarantee he'd be busting my ass for some of the stupid shit I've pulled on here.

My heads in the clouds, a tears in my eye.. miss ya old buddy.

Ken would be having a birthday on sunday. He was a good soul and a class act.

Time to crack a jar of Somerset Slices in Ken's honor.

He and TJ were like Siamese Twins. Very different backgrounds & circumstances, but on the same page, always . . . it was neat to see.

I suspect they're continuing where they left off here "up there."

Dang. I think it was about two years ago today that I spoke with him on the phone. He had just got out of the hospital after nearly dying. Had been there for a couple weeks and still the first thing he did when he got home was walk down to the Post Office to mail his Secret Santa package. I called and his wife said he was napping, but he wasn't asleep and insisted he would chat on the phone a bit. You would never have known he was ill by the sound of his voice. Miss him.

Ken was a fine, gentle man. I traded with him several times and always got more than I sent. I still get a chill when someone revives an old thread and I'm reading down the comments and there's his old avatar. His observations seem even wiser now than when I first read them.

For anyone like myself who didn't have the honor, either, go back and read some of his posts and interactions on the forum. I found myself smiling and laughing more than once. What a character he must have been. Smile

Cool

I was the recipient of his generosity on a couple of occassions. He was a man of quality. I sure miss his posts. Tonight I will smoke a bowl and drink a toast to him. Bran, thanks for the reminder.

Ken was as fine a man as anyone would want to meet. He actually talked me into trying Burleys again after many, many years of avoiding them! Hard to realize it's been two years. PB...Thanx for the reminder!!! FTRPLT

I really miss him. I remember the times he was in the Spring Forward passes and the donations he made for the packages sent to the troops. Ken was always a class act and kind gentleman. His only problem was his pick in sports teams. lol! Just kidding.

Nice to see a post from you FTRPLT!!!
I miss ya buddy and I hope all is well! king

I suspect Ken was the culprit when I received a pair of old Ehrlich pipes and a very generous amount of tobacco samples when I first joined BOB a while back. I asked him if he did it and he did the old "Who me?" routine. Doc Perry explained to me that Ken was notorius for sending out stuff to new guys and he would never "cop" to doing it. That was the way he was. Good old soul who passed way too soon. I miss him, as we all do. Sad
