Rolling your own ...


"The art of true hand rolling is a skill that escapes most people. There are no tricks or secrets really, only lots of practice and a willingness to go through a few packs of papers until you get the hang of it. Now after a relatively short time, one can certainly learn to hand roll stick that are smokeable. The problem is that it takes a considerable leap from that level before you can roll really good looking sticks."

I used to roll Dads fags for him on long journies initially, and then at home after I'd got the knack of it. I was under the age of 7 because it was when we had the old Wolseley. "Make the next one a bit tighter", "Not bad, a bit too tight..." It kept me occupied and was much better than counting red cars ...
