That Cigar Shop is Dead to Me

That Cigar Shop is Dead to Me

Ben’s Week In Smoke – Bayou Edition Lucky No. 13

It has been awhile since I’ve done a Week In Smoke, so I figured it was due to get one out.  I traveled to Houston, TX this past weekend to visit my wife who is working there on a temporary assignment.  I usually travel there to visit her with my mom and my son, but this time I was able to go solo.  What does that mean?  Audio books and lots of cigars.  I was gather up a great starting …
