The troubled musings of a troubled mind.
I am a husband, father, pastor, greyhound owner, hockey fan, gamer, historian, and dork, so I might blog about all those things or none at all.
Mmm..."It's toasted"!I noticed 'Lucky Strikes' are ubiquitous in 'The Pacific'. Speaking of which, I watched episode 4 last night on the tube here and it seemed like WWII filtered through the Vietnam experience. My impression so far is it doesn't hold a candle (or should that be a cigarette?) to 'Band of Brothers'.
I have wanted to watch 'The Pacific,' but we do not have HBO, so I was waiting for the DVD release.'Band of Brothers' would be hard to beat. (My dad gave us old army C ration boxes while we were in the scouts, and every meal had a small pack of cigarettes in them. I guess he trusted us enough not to smoke them! Lucky Strikes and Camels must have got the government contracts back then.)
It took a "real man" to smoke Luckies! No filtered or mild cigs for me. It was the wonderful taste that counted and I'd walk a mile for a Camel!Dad
Those mini packs of cigarettes sure were a treat while camping out with good ole BSA Troop 258.My Type 2 diabetes has put the kabash on smoking cigarettes, pipes, or cigars. Besides, my wife won't kiss an ash tray.
