@Serenity. You're one of the lucky ones. You're blessed to have your fathers pipes. I wish now,I could have got my hands on my granddads pipe. He had only one pipe. It was probably a cheap basket pipe. He was the role model for me. He had only one arm due to a farm accident. I remember being absolutely mesmerized as a little kid watching him load his pipe with one hand using just his thumbnail to light a blue tip stick match to set fire to it.
