Hi everyone! Coffe break and the first bowl of the day before I leave for the hairdresser:
Scaferlati Caporal in the Wessex Dublin. This is a good blend
Good morning gents!
in my Cavicchi
Best Brown #2 in a BBB billiard with some cafe bustelo.
That thing is awesome
Went looking in the freezer for a piece of venison to put in a stew for dinner tonight. Found a forgotten bottle of Limoncello hiding in the freezer so having a little glass of it before heading back outside to enjoy some 1792 in a Peterson Canadian. Sunny and -4C(25F)H61%
The Braves are getting ready to play. I'm getting ready to smoke Edward G. Robinson in a 1982 black sandblasted paneled slight bend Savinelli flat bottom sitter. I just wrote a review of the blend at Tobacco Reviews, partly because I like to write them, and partly because I'm slightly annoyed by a few of the reviews of EGR. I don't believe some of those people actually ever tried it. I talked to Rich at 4Noggins about carrying it, and he was unenthused about carrying it because the reviews convinced him it's a bad tobacco. Well, it's not great, but it's not what a few of those "reviewers" claim it is. I know there are a couple of online retailers who carry it, but it'd be nice to get it from a place who offers a PSF discount and free shipping. Oh well... Guess I should be happy I got some St. James Flake from him today.
Nice sunny spring day...for now. Erinmore Flake in the Wicker Clay. Taking a walk.

Its snowing a wet snow here.
Went for a quick bike ride. Then walked the dog.
Paid bills for one of the businesses.
Mailed a tobacco sample to another forum member.
Now I am loading the Monster Pete with Shortcut to Mushrooms and kicking back until I go to work this afternoom.
And did you hear how fast PipeSimmo is speaking? Which means he's figuring out that whole Der-Die-Das thing at the same speed. Damn genius!

Been working in the shop. Getting ready to go to work (the one that pays the bills). Founding Fathers in my Poker, with whats left of the Maxwell House. Saturday is coming closer and my wife is busy getting stuff ready for our week in the mountains. I'm helping by staying the hell outa the way! Friday I'll pack my 2 bags (one with clothes, the other with pipes and tobacco) and I'll be done. Then Saturday we'll get up, I'll load up the 182 bags (you know how women pack) and we'll be on our way!
To be honest, for the last 10 minutes I'm trying to figure out what you might have meant with this statement...
Watch out, My Good Man! Ogden's might dispatch a couple of Scouser goons to work you over for that one. Even EGR would think twice before trespassing on the Merseyside.
Still puffing on Devil's Holiday in an Astleys Freehand ...

I bow before you, Great Master. When laziness triumphs over the will to smoke, you have achieved true Enlightenment.
Down here in Samsara, still sawing away at some Devil's Holiday in an Astleys Freehand ...
Well, in English, when we want to say
The cow walked into the city.
that's all we have to say.
But in German, you have to know, first, that city is feminine. And second, since the cow is moving toward the city rather than already being in the city, it's in die Stadt rather than in der Stadt. And thirdly, you just can't blurt out the past participle whenever you feel like it: you have to wait until the end of the sentence. Putting all this together, you get
Die Kuh ist in die Stadt gegangen.
But that's a ridiculously easy example. You're navigating much more difficult sentences than that. Kind of like solving calculus problems in your head. That's why I say you're a damn genius! Just ask any American who has tried to learn German.
Oh, and I was being mildly facetious as well. Sorry if the blundering attempt at humor was vexing.
I must have been tempted into it by the ...
