Bob's brother?


Saw this in a newspaper. Could Manly Manderson be Bob's brother?

It could be that the cartoonist is remembering Judge Parker from the newspaper comic strip. I don't know whether he still does, but, when I was growing up, Judge Parker smoked a pipe.

Heck, Judge Parker was one reason I considered started smoking a pipe. I've never forgiven him.

I've never wanted to smoke a pipe until this moment.

I have fond memories of seeing both of my grandfathers smoke pipes, and one of them lived until his late 90's.
One liked corn cob pipes, and the other German pipes. If I think about it enough, you can almost smell it.
Not for me, but very fond memories.

In my case, the pipe led to the hard stuff: cigarettes.

I finally managed to quit and stay quit about eight years ago.

Nor does it mean that anyone has to listen.

Nice, grats! I quit smoking almost 4 years ago and the smell of it still makes me want to smoke. I rolled my own cigarettes using pipe tobacco since it was cheaper than regular tobacco due to taxes.

I like Bob and the image is of course, iconic! But provokes my own tale of tobacco woe...

I was a 3-4 pack a day Marlboro man, plus pipe and occasional cigar... I really liked my pipe!

A smoking related experience on a job site late one night made me so angry with myself that I decided to quit then and there (1981), and I have not relapsed a single time. Very glad that it happened if that is what it took!

Several years ago my brother sent a handful of fine cigars for my birthday, and I still love the smell (unlit) but have resisted lighting one. Even after all this time, I know that just a single drag on a cigarette or cigar and I'd be full blown addicted immediately. I guess you never get over it, at least I don't think I have!

My wife (to be) quit the following year and began to put money in a jar equivalent to what we both spent on tobacco... new car came pretty quickly! She still keeps track at current prices, but not the jar, and it recently surpassed all we have spent on vehicles, land and building our home! Pretty sobering thought!

Good for you, Astrogeek. I know how hard that was.

Speaking of tales of woe, my first job was in a complaint department. I smoked one pack a day when I started; I was up to three packs a day in three months of dealing with unhappy customers (this was back when you could smoke in the workplace).

When I moved south to where I live now, one of the most difficult things I did was to throw out my pipe collection. I had some marvelous briars and Meerschaums. But they had to go.

I was a big fan of E. A. Carey pipes.

mralk3, I had a good friend and co-worker who stopped smoking and who vowed he would never be one of those who complained about the smell of smoke or about other smokers. Some years later, he confided to me that the smell of smoke was starting to bother him, and that he couldn't help it. I have to say, after eight years, it now bothers me. (Thank heavens!)

If I could have stuck to pipes, I would probably still be donning a smoking jacket, he said metaphorically. But the cigarettes kept beckoning. Tobacco is perhaps the most persistent of all addictions.

As an aside, I was a big Perry Mason fan, both the books and the TV show. Three of the big stars of the Perry Mason TV show died of lung cancer--the fellow who played Paul Drake, the one who played Lt. Tragg, and the one who played Hamilton Burger. In those days, actors were expected to smoke.

On the other note, done smoking since nov. 2k7 - clean every since.


Kudos to all who ceased using.
