Pipes and Patches™
I am transported into the yesteryear. A large, over-stuffed recliner tucked neatly in the corner of the parlor. A small oaken side table full of intricately carved wooden pipes lined up in a row. Woolen jacket with patched elbows still hangs on the wall. I run my hands over the detailed deer, fox and flowers engraved in the wood. The aroma of times gone by is so near. Ancient tobacco, cherry, and a touch of vanilla still linger in the air around me. So comforting, my grandfather’s world. A man that I have never met. But suddenly feel closeness. Times gone by of different industry, immigrant entrepreneurs, reaching to make something in this new world. Slow down, sit, and visit for a while. I linger here just to be near the smell that embodies my grandpa.
