    Well I feel like a dummy! The space labelled "Current Schedule" was occupied by what should have been placed in the spot for "Last Week's Schedule," and the actually current schedule was in the spot for "Next Week's Schedule." I was at work yesterday and checked my schedule, and just looked for "Monday" without looking at the actual dates. I'm off today, woohoo! Now........

    What will I smoke in my new Canadian first? If the bowl is of the same quality and general construction as my other from the same brand and line (Ben Wade Western) I'm thinking I might want it to be designated for Virginia based blends without latakia....so I'm thinking either some Ferndown Yellow and Brown or else LNF or LBF :bing:

    If it gets here today, it will be two business days! I ordered Friday and they mailed it that day...from Chicago to Columbus on Saturday, sitting at the post office on Sunday, delivered on Monday....And here I went and placed an order around 3pm or so on a Friday!

    WOW! Havent even put tobacco in it yet and I love this pipe! Perfectly clenchable, beautiful finish, great size for me and quite a looker! The only tiny "flaw" would be a slightly imperfect fit between the shank and the beginning of the bit...theres a slight gap on one side, but the mortise and tennon fit perfectly of course. Can't wait to fire her up!

    But what to smoke?? They threw in a free sample of "Three Star Blue" aromatic pipe tobacco. Wonder if it's any good?

    Edit: Okay, so, I realized I have no pipe dedicated as appropriate for heavier latakia blends which would leave a lat ghost behind, so I think this will be a lat pipe. First smoke in it will be 1/3 of a bowl of Star of the East!
