A Chip Off the Ol’ Block

HAPPY TYPEWRITER DAY!My little dude, Joe. All of five years old, and he wants to be just like his pop.

(That’s my c.1938 Underwood Champion there)

    • Yeah, he holds it like a lollipop. Actually, I bought that just for him because he kept wanting to stick my pipes in his mouth, and I’m obviously not going to let a child stick a used pipe with tobacco residue in his mouth. So I bought this new for him, and we stick it in bubble soap and let him blow bubbles with it. And that’s the ONLY use it sees. I’ll probably get a lot of flak for this, but I’m good at ignoring people.
      (Joe was also intrigued with a wind cap I had, and he insisted on sticking that on the top of his pipe as well.)

  1. It’s actually our son’s pipe. He insisted he has his own, just like the man. No, we don’t actually let him smoke it, but has learned to blow bubbles (with solution) just nicely. He loves to copy his pop and I love watching him. There isn’t a better man in the world to emulate.
