Resolution Redux

The Old Gold Dancers
"Call for Phillip Mor-Ray-As" ( Philip Morris)
The Marlboro Man
Us Tarryton smokers would rather fight than switch
I'd walk a mile for a Camel
LSMFT..Lucky Strike means fine tobacco..(loose strap means floppy tits)
Outstanding...and they are mild (Pall Mall)
Show us your Lark pack
Kent...imperial sized cigarettes
Parliments recessed filter

I stole my first smoke from my uncle Petes pack of unfiltered Camels at age 14. In college, our Frat house had a non-electric machine. Smokes were 23 cents a pack, you put in a quarter and got back 2 shiny pennies for change in the bottom of the cigarette pack. I went to grad school in Canada, I liked Rothmans and Export-A's, but Quit when they went up to 2.50 a pack!
I stayed smoke-free until about 10 years ago, but on again, off again...you know. So for umpteenth time I'm smoke free again.....2 days and counting. I'll leave you with a little Yin/Yang of smoking......


'Winston, taste good like a cigarette should
Winston, taste good like a (clap clap) cigarette should
Winston gives you real flaver, full rich, tobacco flaver
Winston taste good like a cigarette should


Tobacco is a dirty weed
and from the the Indians it did proceed
It empties your purse and burns your clothes
and makes a chimney out of your nose

well here's to a smoke free 2007 and every year thereafter. and since you have all those cute jingles here is one from my grandfather...

we don't smoke, drink, or chew
and we never go with girls who do.

hehehehe

G-Man said...

Girls used to chew?

Thank you Lime.
I saw a retouched photo of you on SeaRabbits site....OOOh La La!!

jillie said...

I remember all those commercials. WOW...those are long gone days. Good for you on the smoke free 2007. A bit of FYI...not only will YOU benefit from it your family will too. My mom has lung cancer from second hand smoke and just about died two years ago. SO QUIT SMOKING OK?????

G-Man said...

I almost had one though, when my balls were trapped in that lawn chair..
Thanks Jillie.

Strumpet said...

If I can do it, Galen, you can. It's been about six months for me now.

I am sending you all of my Nicotine Really Sucks Vibes to swim about in your bloodstream.

It's SO much cooler to NOT SMOKE.

Trust me.

Your lungs will love you. Your heart will love you. Your life will love you and therefore last longer.

And I love you.

So fucking make sure you stick to it, darlin'!

I am proud of you and you should be proud too.

And please get those god-awful tobacco slogans out of your head, dude.

How about....

Smoking sucks, so drink more wine.

Yay!

jillie said...

Yeah...listen to strumpet. Drink more wine...the redder the better ;o)

G-Man said...

Chandra, your the SHIT!xoxoxoxo

G-Man said...

I have a 1969 Charles Krug Special Vintage Cabernet.

Kristen said...

you know...I'm way too shallow to ever smoke.

Seriously....it makes your clothes, breath, and hair smell....just not for me.

I'm proud of ya' for the smoke free 2007

jillie said...

OH BOY...that sounds so yummy. Cabs are my favorite...I'll be right over!

Manny said...

Good for you g.

Yes I do wake up at 3:30

I first smoke was something called lemon twist or some crap like that. I don't remember, but the pack was pretty and I was coooool.

OK Gotta run, I'm working on a report.

gab said...

Im happy to say that is one habit I didnt start. It helped that Im alergic to the smoke. My mom smoked and I had a hard time being around her. All 3 of our kids smoke(where did they pick it up from when we dont)(I know peer pressure)Wtg on being smoke free. Good luck

G-Man said...

Kristen,
Smart, beautiful, and sweet, thanks baby.

Manny,
The early bird.....
(i love unfinished thoughts with you)

Gabby,
Kids have a mind of their own. I'm 5.00 richer today anyway.
Thanks sweetie.

lime said...

my grandfathr was full of odd sayings.

and oh, now you have me blushing too!

G-Man said...

Lime,
No reason to blush at all...stunning!

I love old sayings and proverbs.

jillie said...

Rise and shine little raisin!

Jodes said...

1st off - I am UP!! 2nd - I hope that you can stay smoke free it is a NASTY habit. 3rd - In my college days I was friends with the ENTIRE DELTA UPSILON FRATERNITY in Arlington, TX, NO NOT WHAT YOU ARE THINKING.....anyway, they hated it when someone said FRAT, you were to call it a fraternity or brotherhood. Saying FRAT was in their eyes a bad thing......just thought I would share. I am still friends today with a bunch of them, they are some of my closest friends and I even introduced my best friend to one of them and they are now married.

Strumpet said...

That Cab sounds fucking awesome, Galen.

You should save it for when you hit the one month mark!

In the meantime...go buy some good Under 10 bottles to keep your thirst satiated and your vices in check.

And when you open that Cab...let me know and I'll pour myself a li'l glass of somethin'-somethin' and we'll do a cyber-toast.

Bottoms up, baby!

G-Man said...

Mornin Jillie, xox

Mornin Jodes, xox, your Fraternity pals sound like effete snobs. Of course Animal House had NOTHING on our frat..Phi Delta Tau...Party!

Strumpie? Found the key I see.
I'll be over to see you soon..G

jillie said...

Ahhh...you ARE awake. Somehow I imagine you were "trouble" in your frat house....but in a good way RIGHT??

G-Man said...

Jillie,
I was the Chaplain, then Pledgemaster, then President.
I may do a post on some of our 'exploits'...

jillie said...

Would I love to hear some of those! I love to listen to all of the debauchery.

Jodes said...

trust me they were not snobs, those were the best parties I have ever been too!!!

G-Man said...

Jodes, I saw your links, thanks honey..

Jodes said...

you betcha, dude!!! this day is dragging.....

SignGurl said...

My mom started saving the money that she put into smoking. That was 20 years ago and she has amassed a fortune. She only puts away each week what she spent in '86 on cigs.

I'm so proud of you!

*sniff* You smell better already.

G-Man said...

Thanks Jenn, I'm sure I do!..Nice HNT.

Strumpet said...

The key was right where you said it would be.

Perfect.

And wow! A post on wine...a post on Frat exploits...you got all sorts of shit workin' over there.

I rarely think much about a post before I do so. I just kind of let my fingers go where they will depending on my mood. I get an itch and I just go and scratch it.

SignGurl said...

Do you have suggestions for where I could rub them?

G-Man said...

Itch scratchin by Strumpet...

Foot rubbing by Sign...

...Today, I consider myself, THE luckiest bastard alive!

Thank you my lovelies!
