Years ago I had a large collection of smoking pipes which I gave to a friend for his much larger collection. Among those I gave him (I thought) was a pipe that belonged to my grandfather. Friend died last year and his collection went to parts unknown. I regretted loss of that pipe. But, yesterday, I was digging through cartons of 'stuff' we have in our garage and....lo....and....behold.....was Grandpa's pipe. I must have held on to it for sentimental reasons. I used to smoke it but gave up the habit over 30 years ago. Now, it rest on display with some of my other things until I go.
