on Pipes & Tobacco
General Notes on the "hobby"
I smoke a pipe, though not a super whole lot. I enjoy it. I kind of just like collecting the tobacco (some of which I may never smoke, just keep as a historical thing. These are my random thoughts on the hobby, and other things I have written that deal with it.
This bulleted list is the original three articles from the section, more will follow as I write them:
