Photos in memory of

Post by Thunktank » Mon Jun 18, 2018 5:48 pm

I'm sure many of us have friends and family members who were pipe smokers that left behind interesting pictures.

Here's one of mine:

Image

Freddy at about 6 years of age, one year before his death. He died of a rare brain cancer. He is standing in the doorway of his home on a ranch in Montana.

If anyone knows what he has in his hand, I would love to know. It looks like a huge trout plug, but can't be.

Looks like a toy airplane. Unless you mean his other hand, in that case, I have no idea! :oops:

Looks like a toy version of a Lockheed L-10 Electra.

A great idea for a thread. I know that my mom had a picture of my Grandfather smoking a pipe in the front yard of their house in Denver, but I don't have access to it so...no pics from me, but I still like the idea of the thread.

Wire antennae.

In those days aircraft communicated via MF and HF (medium wave and shortwave frequencies) radios on both AM voice and CW Morse code.

Great idea indeed. As long as you don't expect anyone to follow the lead and post pictures of dead people with pipes.

Nothing wrong with it. I was just pointing out that nobody has followed your lead. In typical CPS fashion we've taken off on the tangential issue of what, exactly, young Freddy is holding and ignored completely what a cool picture it is and we've not followed up with any of our own.

Not that there's anything wrong with that. See OWS's comment in my sig line.

Sorry I still can't find any photos to post...but here is this;

A couple of years ago, I was on another forum site and a guy posted a picture of his newly passed down Winchester .22 rifle. He also posted a picture of his Grandfather that he said was dated in the 1940s. The picture was of a man wearing a fedora, coat and tie, kneeling down holding a beagle on short lead in one hand and a Winchester .22 rifle in his other hand and a big billiard pipe clinched in his mouth. The OP said that on the back of the photo it gave the date and said "Dad headed out to hunt rabbits on a Sunday afternoon". The rifle in the picture was the same gun that the OP had just been given my his mother.

I remember thinking, I wish I could have met that man in the photo.

No pictures, and not pipe related, but my great grandparents were tobacco farmers and my great grandma chewed tobacco until the day she died at the age of 94 I believe. I was a kid at the time, when she would spit out this black stuff, I just thought she was so old that she was spitting up her innards, black with age lol. Other than that I remember she had an eye patch, glasses, and one time she gave me a bag of lemon drops.

We could just help them along and then you could post without remorse.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.
