Gentlemen, This morning I happened upon my third born smoking in the Lodge. Naturally I was faintly surprised, and not a little ashamed when my gaze rested upon the brand he was meekly holding: a garishly decorated packet with the words 'Lucky Strike' thereupon printed. He informed me that the cigarettes in question were popular with the young people of his acquaintance. I was on the receiving end of down-wind cloud and almost dropped my Corona at the nauseous stench I received. I myself, in the distant past, used to smoke Boyards MaÃ¯s but realised the error of my ways; and the fact that their manufacture was brutally discontinued. My father was, sadly, in no position to offer me guidance. I would be interested to hear what you would have me recommend him take up in place of this vulgar brand he believes is the bees knees. Yours optimistically, Mr Smith Note to 'publisher': There seems to be a lack of cigar or pipe icon availabe for my use in this thread. Please see to it forthwith.
