Out of Time

.
I'm quite literally out of time this week since my folks just got into town this morning, so here's a quickie Ruby Tuesday from me.
.
I was out of shooting, or rather breathing, time when grabbing this photo too, since the alley it was lying in had a broken pipe and stunk to high heaven. I'm also out of actual packages of Time cigarettes, which I smoked for a few years before quitting my 17-year pack a day habit a decade ago (they were harsh and dry and I hated them, but they were half the price of the Marlboro Reds that I preferred).

Glad you quit...enjoy the visit Robin...Michelle

Mojo said...

Never heard of these, but it's a real shame whoever the former owner was couldn't have found a better place to discard the empty pack.

On the other hand, you got an interesting photo out of the deal, so it's not a total loss.

Am I happy my days as a cigarette smoker also also is way back.
Must be an Isreali brand. Never heard of it before.
I wish you happy Passover celebration. We call it paaske from Hebrew, I've been told.

I'm so glad you stopped, Robin! It means your husband, kids and we (yes all of US) will have you that much longer. ;-)

Yen said...

At least those were the days..:) Glad you stopped! Happy RT!

It's good you had a bad Israeli brand, and maybe that helped you stop. Too bad it doesn't work on the rest of the Israeli population, who smoke too much (my cousins both work in the health professions, and even there Israelis smoke!).

Enjoy your seder (even if you don't enjoy the preparation). I'm off to my kitchen. Tata.

Good job quitting:)

Catherine said...

When we don't find packages of cigarettes, we find butts on the ground !
You'll gain time quitting them !
And quality of life. Breathe, Robin ...

I often wondered why I smoked (a habit until 1977). It seems that smokers don't seem to notice a little carbon monoxide and oxygen deprivation. It's strange to think that smoking was part of a sexy style at one time...

Never heard of that brand but congratulations on quitting. I quit also in 2000. Best thing I ever did.

Robin I quit 4+ years ago and still have desires once in a while... I won't start again bit I loved smoking when I did it! A zizen Pesach to you and your family! Don't work too hard! :)

Congrats on quitting. I've never seen that brand. I like the retro graphic quality of the box.

Carletta said...

Perfect Title!
I have to echo what Mojo said about the owner not finding an appropriate place to discard the trash.
Many congrats on quitting!!
Happy Passover and have a wonderful time with your family.

I don't smoke, so I don't know the joy of smoking. :P

But I'm glad many of you quit smoking.

Jill said...

bj said...

So glad you were able to stop smoking...I quit 6 years ago and have never looked back. Don't know why I didn't do it years and years ago....
Happy RED..

I like the blend of textures in this photo.

I'm glad you stopped smoking.

Raven said...

Congrats on quitting. Interesting name for a cigarette brand... kind of rubbing your nose in the fact that they're helping you kill yourself.

laura said...
