Yours Truly, smoking her first ever (and last) cigar! This photo was taken in 1995, not too long after Kevin and I were married. He was working for Imperial Oil in Toronto and one of his work buddies was a big cigar-fan. We went to dinner at his home and out came the cigars. Never one to balk at a challenge, I took one in hand and smoked it – no problem! I didn’t choke; nor did my eyes water, but the taste? Blech!!!
If you read last week’s Sepia Saturday entry, you’ll know that my husband’s “Farmor” (grandmother) recently passed away and she was fond of a drink of beer and a little cigar. Well, I’m not a big fan of smoking in any form, but I don’t mind a good foreign brew and as many of you know, I do like a shot of Danish Aquavit every once in a while.
Sorry this is such a short post, but I’m still working on my manuscript for my upcoming poetry volume, Shadowstalking. See the post below for details.
Oh, and be sure to visit the Sepia Saturday blog where you’ll find links to all the folks who have far better offerings for you, with much more fascinating (and less self-centred) photos and stories.
Thanks for visiting!
P.S. I’ll be back on track soon with regular visits to all my friends and new posts with more historic photos.
