Retired music educator, and now a full time performer. Among my performing groups is The 33rd Illinois Volunteer Regiment Band..... A Civil war era brass band. We have performed for presidential inaugurations, and numerous 150th Civil War events. I also am a bugler for military funerals, play in a British style brass band, and play in a couple dance bands.As far as pipe smoking, I have been doing it for 43 years (MY GOD!), and, now that I am retired, am enjoying it even more. My tobacco choices are English blends from Jon's Pipe Shop, in Champaign, Illinois, and Lane's RLP6 and HGL.Also a premium cigar enthusiast! I am happily married with two grown daughters, two grown sons in law (!), a grand puppy, and a newly arrived GRANDSON!

Dunhills (50), Ashton's (4), Peterson (17), Savinelli (4), Sasieni (13), Briar Workshop (7), and assorted others.
