    Well said Bill, reading these various threads sums it up for me you just can't rush the pipe.

    Yes the pipe helps me relax and brings back memories of past times spent beside a camp/bothy fire during weekends away in the hills with my old hiking/cycling mate Alex....he was a Condor and Falcon pipe man during the 35 years I knew him. I suspect if Alex had been a non smoker I wouldn't be a pipe smoker. I look forward to later this year when I return to Glasgow and meet Alistair - Alex's son - who has kept his dads pipe collection to give to me. They're not of any monetary value - mostly Falcons/Alcos but to me they are priceless.

    Aye Lads, a Pypeman... Hmmmmm.... I njoy a pipe after work, in the morning, afternoon, evenin, anytime fer that matter... The choice o baccy & pipe be like sailin to a new port o call or ship to take on the high seas.... Sittin whilst checki in here in the forums with me mates... settin on me quarterdeck wit a splash o the Capt's Rum havin a relaxin time wit friends ar family spinning a yarn... I find the pipe will relax and take the pressure o the day away or just the right amount o envigoratin to get a bit o mischief started... And like Mr Billy said, tis me next best friend to share me time wit...

    Thanks for replying to my thread fellas. It seems that relaxing is the most common answer. Which if more people did it, it would probably make this world a much easier place to live in

    Just for fun, being a pipe man means...

    ...Keeping spare matches in the car.
    ...Keeping a pipe and tobacco in the car along with the spare matches.
    ...Having clothes with burn holes.
    ...Having breath so bad that it's visible.
    ...Finding any time or excuse (however inappropriate) to light up and smoke a bowl.
    ...Finding the money (however much needed elsewhere) to buy that pipe before it's sold.

    And I'm sure there's more. Feel free to add to the list!

    After all of the statistics and reports are finished with, I've come to the conclusion that the only real danger of smoking a pipe is being interrupted.

    I just noticed this thread, and I have to say it was a great read; I cannot add anything of eloquence since it has been very well said by all!

    Examining the cutlery for tooth marks when you're dining out.
    Finding out that the price of a much-needed set of new underpants or socks cost the same as a tin of your favourite tobacco.
    So you buy the tobacco.

    The relaxation from all of life's vexations....and reading through the postings on forums for pipe-smokers.
