Sorry, I've been working a lot again. Good stuff. Unfortunately now I don't know if I've missed him or not?


Thought you were just loafing around sitting under a tree, puffing on your pipe?

More likely a long stem clay pipe.

Lol. You are a priceless lot! Now that I think about it, it was kinda smokey in here. Maybe Godot doesn't like that?

When you go to make a milkshake, and realize the ice cream you bought mistakenly is LOW FAT.

Oh the HORROR!

I do that here, but I would not do it if I was back in my home state (your state). Winters just aren't the same here, even though nearly a mile high.

Not knowing what Julie actually looks like, I can only picture her avatar smoking a pipe. It's pretty incongruous.

In my case, the closest that would ever happen is a kid's plastic pipe for blowing bubbles. (Do they still sell those, or did they quit because they "promoted smoking"?)

I really don't know David, but I'd wager here in the US they are not sold anymore. Along with candy cigarettes that I remember from when I was a kid. I don't know which is worse; that they used to have candy cigarettes, or that my mother bought them for me when I was a young child. LOL

Back when I smoked pipe and cigars, my favorite pipe tobacco was a blend of two black cavendish tobaccos that I got at a smoke shop in Hawaii - one was cured in vanilla, the other was cured in coconut oil - smelled great and tasted kinda like chocolate. Now whenever I'm around pipe/cigar smokers, I have to fight off the urge to join them.

I think the Health and Safety Police stopped it because the kids might suck up some detergent. In my youth some younger kids did that, but never twice <g>.

Nowadays (officially) they dip a plastic loop in the gunk and then wave it around, or blow gently toward it. Great preparation for flute lessons. But we unreconstructed grandparents just tell the kids to use a straw / neoprene tube.

I believe you can also get a USB bubble blower with a motor and fan.

I loved them candy cigarettes when I was a kid.
But now that you mention it, they don't sell them anymore...
