I was re-reading the goofy Washington law about shipping tobacco being a felony and noticed something. It only applies to tobacco that has been "ordered or purchased by mail or through the internet." In other words, I actually can get pipe tobacco shipped as long as it's not a purchase or an order. I may have to start eyeballing box passes a bit closer.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

Two different cars pulled out in front of me this morning. So my wife said there will be crazy drivers all day. Why?, I asked. "Because", she replied, when she worked at a Hallmark store, if the first customer bought balloons, they would sell balloons all day or until they ran out. If a card sold first, they'd sell cards all day. "It's a Hallmark store", I said; they're supposed to sell cards and balloons.
So, later I accidently stood in an ant bed. Before the day was out I had accidently stood in three ant beds. I told my wife to go buy a lottery ticket. Get three quick picks. But she didn't do it.
I'll say this though. Ant bites hurt worse than they used to.
I'm old but I'm happy. (Most of the time.)

No mention of purchasing by phone either. Loophole!

I’ve been to a country music concert every week for the past month. I’m going to a country music festival this Sunday too.

My son is moving to Vail to be a ski lift operator this season. I 'm trying to figure out what he'll need to take with him. :confused:

It was fun and free!

The festival this weekend will have a lot more local artists. I also like those.

Now that the kids are older, my wife and I get to go out a lot again, with friends too!

It's a beautiful cool morning here and a client cutover last night went boobies up. I love the smell of escalation at dawn.

I'm gonna sell my golf clubs, my boat, rods, reels, and guns, and cash in everything I've got, and start over.

Keeping a couple pipes and the McClellands though.

And my dog.

And my wife too I guess.

I had exhibitor's tickets and an employee parking pass so I took my bride to the Fair this morning.
We had lots of fun for not much $$.
