I grew up in a home where both my parents smoked, my mother started smoking, because my father, wouldn't quit! I was never interested in smoking, and only one of my four sisters, did. I did like the smell of my father's pipe, when he would smoke that on occasion, and when he would blow warm smoke in our ears if we had an ear ache. I don't know if it actually did anything, to help, but it did make it feel better, for awhile. :^) It may have been a Native American(Karuk) remedy, passed down from his mother, or from his fathers side, they were tobacco plantation farmers in Virginia, in the 1650's-1900's, but maybe just a way he had to make us feel better. So, I guess this is where I learned to like different smoking paraphernalia, nicer to look at than to breath!
I started with some pipes that I had(inspired by Bonnie's post), but if some is good more is better, added the Tobacco Tin, then the Cigar Tin, how about an Aluminum Bowl with a Ship, a Boats Bell, oh, an Aluminum Cigarette Box, and Case, and a Bowling Match Safe, a Lighter, got to have Silver Plated Ashtrays, Beer Mug, Poker Cards and Box, and of course a Good Book? Darwin's The Descent Of Man! :^)
Sorry for all the words! Thanks for taking a look, and like always, I'm happy to try to answer your questions, or show more detail, or more information! Please Enjoy!
