I am a retired (40 years in the classroom) college professor of Philosophy and Literature.

I smoke pipes and RYO cigarettes.

I have been married three times.

I have two hand-carved Wooden Indian pipes I enjoy, as well as three Meerschaum--one with a fitted amber stem. My favorite is a Stanwell and a Savinelli Venezia. They get Dunhill Nightcap--when I can find it.

I tend to like bent stems, and, the older I get, the more I like smaller bowls.

My RYO tobacco is a blend of Kentucky Select Red (3/4) and either Five Brothers or D&R's Picayune (1/4) . I like nicotine, and am always on the lookout for a full-flavored dual purpose tobacco.
