When a guy hits a totter and pulls a fast 3.50 clad kicking through the chips, Hey! That there was a damned old SLQ!

I still smoke, and lately thats a habit I'm trying to deal with...pissing away a Walker Half everyday on a pack of ready rolls makes a guy feel guilty...We all know how hard it is to find one of those! DAMN! I'd have 365 Walker halfs/yr if I could give this up! Now THATS a stack!

Is that odd? Not sure, 'cause I do that myself! I don't use plastic, so I get to see where my money's going!

MP, do you remember back in the 70's when a clad Kennedy half would buy a several chocolate bars, or even a pack of smokes? Try that today . Today, a silver half's value would buy a pack of smokes, or several chocolate bars!
