		  Pipes Digest #54 - April 13, 1991

Welcome to new members:

	Sean B.Y. Hsiung (????????????????????????)
	Patrick Wilken (?????????????????????????????????)

Sean isn't really a "new" member; the computer he uses had cut his
name off his mail, and he sent it in. Thanks, Sean!

With Patrick and Sean, we have members in North America, Europe, Asia,
and Australia. Now we just need members in South America and Africa,
and we'll have a pipe smoker in every inhabited continent! Anyone know
of any potential members there? (Or even sites? :-)

Sorry that this reply is so late, but things is a bit hectic this a' ways. :)

Well, the Ohio Blue Tip Matches still are being made.  Just got some not
even 2 weeks ago.  I don't know what exactly to do if your local stores
aren't stocking them.  The most I can give you is the address:

Universal Match Corp.
Kenner, LA  70062-7096

Also, as for my story...  Well, there's not really anything really interesting
to tell.  I've seen a very small number of people smoking pipes who seemed
quite happy with it (being not only a "habit," but a hobby also.)  So, when
I had a couple o' extra bucks in my pocket, I bought a Dr. Grabow corn-cob &
a pack of cherry tobacco (can't remember the brand offhand.)  I liked it alot.
A lot of friends of mine saw I was having fun and couldn't stand it so they
went out and bought their own.  Now there's a small pack of younger persons
running around this small town of mine all clad in demin and leather and
whatnot with nice (not expensive, but nice nonetheless) pipes hanging out
of their maws.  An interesting picture, at least in my mind.  Well, I continue
to smoke a pipe because, as most others have stated, it lends itself well
to quiet contemplation or a relaxing moment (and this is most welcome while
in the middle of a compiler design class. :)  I only own two pipes (a replace-
ment corn cob, and a Grabow Grand Duke.)  When some money starts coming my
way, no doubt I'll be purchasing more & more.

Well, I suppose that's all I have to say.  Thanx for the time to say it.

[ Thanks for the "tip", Bart! I liked your image of the teenage pipe
gang. I'd like to see it happen more often - beats blowing up
mailboxes! :-) -S. ]
