Now I have to see if they still sell Sportsman tobacco.
RYOs were an adventure to smoke, either would be packed so tight you couldn't get a drag, or you'd light up and it would flame nearly to your lips


I remember using the multiple roller to roll cigarettes for mom and dad. I believe it made 5 or 6 at a time and you had a slot to lay this big long roll in and cut them to length with a razor blade. I have never smoked so I have no idea how they worked out.
Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you'll understand what little chance you have of changing others.

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything, they just make the most of everything that comes their way.

Darn rollers were made to last. I only helped put the cigarettes into the packages. As a kid could have sworn each roll made like 10 smokes!
I can see it, remember them doing it. Like this metal thing clamped on the counter, they put roast in and made roast beef hash, I was too small to even crank the handle. And I hated the hash. Would pay $50 for a plate of it now. That and the dreaded canned crab apples
Plus I am so hungry
Someone make me RB hash and a package of RYOs please

I make roast beef, fondant potatoes and yorkshire pudding once a year. I have RB hash in my freezer in single serving cups. I am just waiting for the RCMP to kick in my front door and think they hit the mother load when they open my freezer and see all of those packages labeled "HASH".

I remember helping roll cigarettes as a kid too. Out of my mom, sister and I, I was considered the best roller (I was about 8 years old). I remember being proud of the praise!

Wow.
Do kids still do the Valentine's Day at school thing? We would make our little boxes and cut the slot, sat on our desks. Get a giant book of valentines day small cards. My Mother insisted I give one to each child, even the nose picker.
And there was always one kid would would screw it up and give another student " to my Teacher"
First crush in grade 2 based on those cards :)
