    Just had the finest hour of quiet piping for a long time. I went to pick up my wife from a long shift at the nursing home where she is matron, and for various reasons she often gets held back over her regular time on a Thursday. Anticipating this - I filled a large meer, lowered the back of my driver's seat, and prepared for a long wait.
    The meer was fresh and clean - had not been smoked for a few weeks, and the tobacco was a first for me, some Blackwoods Flake, courtesy of Mr.Moo - thanks Dan!. There followed over an hour of very fine smoking, the Blackwoods was the perfect compliment for that big meer on a warm summer evening. I've had some nice tobaccos from 'over the pond' recently, and this is definately one for my future TAD list.

    Big Meers ROCK! Especially loaded with Va's, Lats, Ori's, Burleys, or just about anything! :toast:

    It's those smokes that add to the memory album that signal you with the "Ah-Ha!" smoke that make you feel like the planets have aligned. Those are wonderful times whether you're doing anything at all besides smoking your leaf. May you have many many more and more often than you've experienced before :drunk:

    Glad to see this for two reasons:

    1 - You had a "memorable moment."
    2 - Your wife is feeling better and back on her feet!

    Well done, Old Ted. It's good to know that even after 40+ years, there's still memorable smokes to be had.
