To return to topic, in these past three days I've seen three separate pipe smokers. The first was an elderly, bearded man down by the bus station. He was wearing a leather cowboy hat and smoking some sort of Peterson system looking pipe. He seemed to have selected some sort of pungent aromatic. As I mistrust anybody in a leather hat, I did not speak to or in any way acknowledge him.

The next day I saw a mad dressed as a leprechaun. When I say dressed as a leprechaun, I do not mean that he was wearing a costume or some sort. From the look of his clothes, I assumed that he probably always dressed in this way. In addition to a green bowler hat, a cane, and knee britches, he had a scraggly, red beard and a lazy eye and was no taller than five feet. He was also smoking a pipe. He attempted to speak to me, but, as he spoke in an Irish accent and also spoke what I could only describe as cackling gibberish I did not speak to or in any way acknowledge him.

The day after when I was walking to the tea shop where I like to go I saw a youngish man, about my age or younger, standing on the corner smoking a bent billiard. He had a sandy colored beard and was wearing an Andean sweater. He did not speak to or acknowledge me in any way, nor I him, as it should be.

Whilst in the parking lot of a local shoe outlet, I beheld a man, late twenties, early thirties, with a dark beard and a pony tail, sitting in his station wagon and lighting a shorter, straight stem, diamond shank briar or some sort.

What was playing on the record?

This is a good one. If that happened to me I'd be playing Orff's Carmina Burana...

I watched Lone Wolf McQuade the other night. Two characters were smoking pipes.

I've been playing Dishonored 2. Several of the NPCs smoke pipes.

I've been meaning to mention this for a while now. I'm actually working with another pipe smoker for what I think might be the first time ever. He's a younger actor, younger than me, at least, and he mentioned that he had given up cigarettes and has taken up a pipe. We're scheduled for two different rehearsal blocks, so I don't actually have the opportunity to smoke with him as of yet.

Yesterday I crossed paths with him just when he was coming into the theater while I was going out. He showed me his pipe. It was a very nice Savinelli with a wind cap. I suppose it was nice, though not the sort of pipe I would smoke.

He mentioned that he didn't like "the fruity tobaccos" and said that he was enjoying smoking Virginia/Periques.

He's also cast in the Henry V that I'll be touring with this summer, as Bardolph to my Pistol, no less. I imagine that we'll get the chance to have a few pipes while running some lines.

I was walking downtown a few days ago when I saw a man, late forties, early fifties, with a deeply lined face and flowing, shaggy hair, similar to my own but streaked with grey. He was smoking a straight billiard. When I came up beside him on the sidewalk, I noted from the markings on the stem that it was a Comoy. I was smoking a Peterson Canadian at the time and I gave him a nod. I am sorry that I did so. Damn my impertinence.

The very next day when I was in a different part of the city I stopped alongside a building to light my pipe. I bigger, heavily bearded man about my age walked by and said, "I saw you walking and I thought, 'he's missing something.'"

He held up the pipe that he was smoking, it was lacking a stem and he was smoking it just by the shank.

At Phoenix Comicon I saw a steampunk dressed fellow and he had a pipe. It was a decent one-- looked like a Peterson. I made note to him of it and he said it still has some smell to it.

At rehearsal today, the actor playing Bardolph, who I've already mentioned, was smoking his pipe with me in the section outside to where we are banished. It must be not so ignominious a section considering that the actor playing King Harry goes out there with us, albeit to smoke menthol cigarettes. He mentioned that he had a pipe and that he should bring it, since that appears to be what the senior actors in this Henry V do. I was somewhat bemused by his description of the pipe he said he owned. He said it had a stem of bamboo and the the bowl was a walnut shell. Who am I to question a king?
