…I Would Gladly Give It To Anyone Willing To Take It From Me.

My name is Bill (William) and I was recently diagnosed with early-onset Parkinson's disease (eoPd), after ignoring~denying the symptoms for as long as possible. The disease caused me to lose my job~career as a structural welder and the diagnosis caused my fiancé to realize that "our lives are diverging toward differing paths."

I started smoking at the repeated suggestions (not advice) of a doctor, who informed me of mounting evidence that indicates smoking tobacco can delay~subdue the effects of Parkinson's. With that, I went to the only convenience store in town and purchased the only type of pipe~tobacco available.

I have been smoking 8-10 times a day, which isn't as much as it probably sounds like considering my pipe's bowl size.

BTW, get rid of that Chinese pipe and get a Dr Grabow for ~40 bucks. American made, briar, and leaves plastic pipes in the dust. Good choice on the tobacco!

Keyboards should have the mathematical sign for approximately in there somewhere.

Get rid of THE REAL MAN pipe?

Anything else would surely be a stepdown. ;)
