    What did your old guy smoke when you were growing up? I am new to the forum so this may have been discussed before but i am curious. My grandfather loved white owls (don't judge it was a rough era lol). Or did your grand smoke a pipe? Mine did that as well with old prince albert (he was a...

    Was eating some blueberries this morning, and a strong remembrance of my Grandfather came flowing through my being, like a blast furnace. I will try and keep this short, but I feel like telling a few things about myself today, and I will get to the part about my grandfather...

    Hello, My Grandfather gave me this cutter the other day. It was origionaly owned by my Great Grandfather who lived in Johannesburg, South Africa. Although it is for very small ring rauge cigars and is now rusted over I thought the design was fantastic. It can either cut a V or a straight...

    Dad gave this to me a couple of years before he died. His Dad bought it in 1919 when he was discharged from the Army.

    Smoke one for Mr William Lott. He is a good man that will be taken from us within 24-48 Hours. I lost my dog less than a month ago as well, these last 30 days have been an emotional roller coaster ride. I will be pulling out my finest cigar this evening in his honor before I hit the road. Billy

    Look ma no hands (haven't seen any reviews for this) My second burley blend of the day and the more I smoke burleys the more I like them. This definitely packs a lot of virginias as well as it was naturally sweet. The nuttiness is really nice and competes with the sweetness well. This is a...

    So, my grandfather is 91 years old. Back in the day, he used to smoke everything (pipe, cigs, cigars), really whatever he could get his hands on. He would talk about how when he fought in World War II (Marines in the South Pacific), he could get White Owls at the PX and he and his buddies would...

    Smoke one for my grandfather, Charles Titus Hyslop Croney, who passed away this morning, he was 98. He was an avid cigar smoker, smoking so much on the golf course he got the nickname, Choo Choo Charlie. He was a major influence on me and is one reason I smoke cigars. I will miss him very...

    My mother gave me an old Sweet Havana cigar box that was my great grandfathers. I guess he enjoyed these and griffen's. He also owned a Hotel in a small town in Wisconsin. On the box is written "hands off Important Papers!" The stamp is marked 1866. Just thought I'd share this with all of...

    OK, how the heck would anyone outside of the family know? Well here's why I ask: I have 2 of my grandfather's pipes. I really wish I had more of them now that I'm starting to smoke a pipe as well. I've always felt very close to the man and I'd love to feel that connection back to my...

    Found this picture of my Great Grandfather Calvin Ashline with Teddy Roosevelt and his Roughriders in Cuba, 1898. Found it under my Dad's WW2 Marine Corp Picture. My Grandma must have put it there before she passed away. He is the one in the middle on the bottom.
