I didn't read any more than the caption under Kaz and Mary's picture and the first sentence. They call pipe smoking a hobby. OK, I guess it is for some people.

I'm not going to read the whole thing but I felt like commenting.

ps No offense, but who names their kid Kaz? He turned out ok I suppose, but c'mon. Lots of names out there, people. Get with the program.

pps Hobby, hobby, hobby. I really don't care what they call it as ling as they keep Grand Croupier, Low Country Bulks, and Rossi Vittorias in stock. That's all I need SP for.

The only pipe smoking stuff I care to read about is right here at PSF, I can't be bothered anywhere else, it's all bologna. Watching it on YouTube is even worse.

Actually, you are 100% right.

That old Kaywoodie/Grabow forum has some good information, but that's my only venture away from PSF.

Did anyone else get the feeling that the 23 year old lighting tech had a very punchable face? Not that violence is my MO :lol: . If he sat next to me at a bar, id probably hurt his feelings. At least he has a job

Who knows, maybe they will succeed in "hobbying" their way past the tobacco nazis and they will start selling pipes and tobacco at Hobby Lobby.

I guess it's for me, a bit of a hobby. I enjoy smoking different blends and seeing how they and my tastes change over time. I love the pipes as art which is why I have so many. I mostly enjoy the camaraderie of my pipe smoking friends.

Building model planes is hobby. Smoking is smoking.

Considering the inordinate amount of time a lot of pipe smokers spend obsessing over their pipes and tobaccos, it does seem that there are 'hobby' elements to it for most. I've known a few guys who smoked pipes just for the nicotine, but those are the exceptions nowadays, and not something I aspire to. If pipe smoking wasn't something I could take or leave, like cigarettes, then I would kick it out of my life.
