Dave enjoys smoking his pipe every now and again, and I have to admit I love watching the smoke dance, drinking in the intoxicating aroma, and sitting together on the porch step discussing life and dreaming crazy someday-dreams.
Yesterday was Dave’s birthday, so we filled the afternoon with fun little excursions around our downtown. First on the agenda was a stop at the local tobacco shop where he replenished his dwindling supply of pipe tobacco with a sweet-smelling looseleaf blend called Middle Earth. Then there was dinner and birthday desert. The evening’s end found us on our front porch rocking and talking and enjoying the crisp bite of approaching autumn as the sun slowly sank into nothingness. Ahhhh. Quite perfect.
