    My wife washed a shirt with a cigar in the pocket and now it's on the floor.

    Looks like a lost argument just waiting to happen.

    That is hilarious Kelvin! I guess Churchhill used to go through a box of cigars a day!

    Leland, did you put a chalk outline around it, little numbers and take photos? Or just call in CSI...

    Chop it up in a cross cut fashion and put a pinch between your cheek and gums. You could also use a morter and pestal to grind the dried remains into a fine powdered snuff, pinch up the nose colonial style may be relaxing. Don't let that accident lead you to waste a good cigar. I hate to see waste.

    That is a shame, though I don't indulge any longer. I can still feel the pain. The cigar doesn't look much different than the ones my grandfather used to chew on at this point.

    It's not much of a loss. How about leaving a camera in one of your pockets and you forgot about it until it came out of the washing machine. I did it with a cheap digital one. It turned on but just wouldn't take any pictures. It was in one of the many pockets of my summer shorts.

    No big loss.

    kinda reminds me of one of those Outbacks! I'll light up a Padron Champagne today as a memorial, Leland!

    If you quit smoking, you wouldn't have this problem. Have more money in your pocket, too

    Put it in your pocket did you? You need to talk to Bitterroot about that.

    I say shred it up, pack the classic pipe and enjoy.

    Probably a good thing really. Just gave you more time to live to catch more fish.

    leland, any cigar left out too long dries out too much to smoke decent anyways. maybe you need to get one of those dandy sage humidors or get orvis to make one for you

    It was a small CAO MX2 that I gave him the day before and was ready to smoke! A cryin' shame...

    He did tie me up a nice Miyawaki Beach Popper that I fished on Thursday though and we smoked a few in it's honor!

    Hells ya! Hit the beaches twice in the past few weeks! And the Day on the River for the past few monthes, plus Mikey's clinic a few weeks ago... and I even remembered my ghetto backup waders every time! :thumb:
