I've spent the last week and a half at home with my family, which is the longest time I've been here since I started college, so for about three years. During this time, I've had the opportunity to smoke cigars with my father, who I've always had a good relationship with anyhow. He's the guy who smoked cigars, and I got my first cigar from him. This hobby, or obsession, depending on how you look at it, has brought us closer together. All of you probably know this by now, but something about smoking cigars brings about great conversation. Even the silences are really wonderful.
I just sort of came outside tonight, to smoke a cigar and celebrate how lucky I am to be a cigar smoker. And I think this forum is a very big reason why I can enjoy my life so much. I think smoking cigars has really taught me to unwind and enjoy every moment. You guys are, in a big way, my cigar family, so a big thank you to all of you, really, for educating me over the last few months.
To any new members reading this, you are in incredibly good company. I couldn't even begin to start naming the great people here, and what they've done, but this is a great crowd. Thanks guys.
