Might be a little dried out!

Post by Stanley76 » Sun Feb 03, 2019 8:07 am

My Dad died in 1996 and my Mom died in 2016. When we were cleaning out her house I found this in my Dad's dresser drawer. He worked his whole life in the tobacco industry but I think this predates even his youth. I can't tell what brand it is, probably cigarette tobacco. It might by slightly too dry to smoke, ha ha, so I'll just keep it in memory of my Dad. He worked for Export Leaf Tobacco Company which was a division of Brown and Williamson a subsidiary of the British American Tobacco Co. In 1960 he was sent to Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) to help set up tobacco processing plants over there. Just thought I'd share this.

See the bull on the tag in between the sacks? You have some Bull Durham on your hands. Neat.

I rolled some bull Durham just like that in 1998 when I was 17 and had no money for smokes.

Farts are either proof that God is a man or a sign of a fallen world.

Dry bakky just needs to be hydrated.

We haven't had a good throw down on hydrating bakky in a while. My views have changed since last throw down. This should be fun.
