Well, I'm an avid pipe smoker, but he isn't me! He's about 40 years younger than I am, and I was never that long-haired, even back in the early '70s, when I was pretty long-haired.
The dog's head meerschaum pipe the lad has has sure seen a lot of smoking to get that deep a color. None of my meerschaums is even close...although I much prefer briars to meerschaums.
On another note, nice to see you back, dopey!
