Back in 1940 something.

Things are a little fuzzy because 1945 or 46 or 47 was a loooong time ago. We had ration stamps that we took to the store and the cashier would take the stamps for meat and sugar. That's the only two I remember. I'm sure there were more. 

Anyway, cigarettes became scarce. You could buy tobacco and papers. AND there was a rolling machine. Somehow when you put the papers in and the tobacco, turned the handle a cigarette would come out the little slide 

And then General Patton became the hero. He smoked a corn cob pipe. 

Dad made mom a pipe. 

Even to this day I don't know how they did it. But mom had her corn cob pipe!!

I looked at these corn cobs and can't figure it out. Probably corn cobs were just bigger then.
