Important fact about cigars I learned last night

Post by Winton » Sun Nov 20, 2016 8:41 am

Apparently, cigars should not be put into the washing machine.

True story. At our pipe club meeting, someone gave my son his first cigar. I was planning to show him how to smoke it today. But he accidentally put it in the wash. Later I found soggy tobacco leaves all through our "clean" clothes.

Yet another good reason to stick to pipes.

Good to know.

40 some years ago I left a can of Skoal in a shirt pocket. Mom was not amused about its effect on her laundry.

Is this the young man who met Pipeson at Chicago Pipe Show last year?

Because Pipeson is laughing uproariously right now.

Yes, that is my son. Only one son and one daughter. More than that, and we would have been outnumbered.

I only had two kids as well.... That was the politically correct mistake of our generation.

We need to restore the idea that a normal family should have 3 to 6 kids.

Plus.... having more kids would be a boon to the cigar market.

My sister says kids are like pancakes---the first one is going to turn out funny looking so parents need to make up for this with increased production.

I think my mother would agree. I was #1 of 4.

My sports friend says that after you have two kids, you need to change from playing man to man and switch to a zone defense.

Also, don't lay one on your bumper while you rig your fly rod and then forget to retrieve it before closing the tailgate and heading down to the stream.
