All of this.
KY Club in a cob.
One bowl of Gulfstream out of my trusted Capri.
PS Balkan Supreme in a Ferndown Antique Bark 3* billiard.
Good walk in the bush while puffing away on LEO in a Peterson 80S. Came across a couple of dozen new born garter snakes, neat little guys. Just finished off the "instant divorce" dinner of melted Tilsit cheese over asparagus, chunks of fresh tomato and melted Limburger over garlic sausage. Pleasant glass or two of merlot and some very ripe Camembert to finish off with. Good thing that the weather is so nice since I can have all the windows open, otherwise I wouldn't be able to smell the Peterson 3P in a Peterson Canadian that I'm smoking right now.
Good Night All
Was going to head up and pack the Boswell Churchwarden with either Nightcap, or Latakia Flake, but I was too lazy to walk up the stairs, get it prepped, wait for it, come back down, pack the pipe, take my meds and then have a smoke; so I suffered through some 5 y/o Anni Kake in the MM Diplomat, the rest will be my morning smoke and is tucked in the leather Savinelli Zip up Bra.
Let me guess Speeling wasn't your best sujeck.
Well, if you left there 20 years ago you would have missed her by 12 or 13 years, I think. What's unfortunate is that she said the town has very rapidly declined, to the point that she couldn't stand living there anymore. Not because of the location, which is clearly a beautiful one, but because of the people and the nature of the community. Hard to explain, really. She lives out in Baker City now. Very different part of the state, but she likes it out there. Says it's a really beautiful place in its own way and that it's a nice place to live. She's an interesting person to say the least; she used to live in Oregon for only half the year, and the other half she ran a salmon processing place in southeast Alaska.
In any case, the PNW is a fascinating region, and I can't wait to visit someday. I plan on doing a trip where I drive out, tour around Oregon and Washington, and then drive up to Bellingham and catch the ferry to Alaska. Then do some touring around Alaska and take the ALCAN highway back down to the lower 48. That's going to be my first big trip once I've saved enough money to do it.
And to keep this on topic, I'm still smoking Stonehaven in a Northern Briars billiard. Iced tea on the side.
i am going to grab a BEER and Load my Pipe with some Anni/plum mix
sit back and reflect upon the situation
while getting ready for Chicago Land Pipe Show
i have an overwhelming mess again
pipes and pipe parts strewn all over the place
i have not set up a display of all of my pipes at one time for nearly 17 years
Jack stack in a mm legend,Nearly smoked the whole bowl just catching up since last night. Sure do wish I had some bacon, eggs, a stack o morels, a St. Bernard, and enough to say to have 2000 posts. Have an idea for a bacon bra press so I could eat it cooked off of the bacon stand that Wicker found.
Congrats on 13 years!
Not that hard to explain. Oakridge was a lumber town with Southern Pacific's mainline through it. You worked in a mill, the woods, railroad, or USFS. You know where all that has gone in the PNW. Younger guys (fortunately I was one of them at the time) moved on. The guys I really felt bad for were the 55 to 60 something's. Too young to retire and too old to hire on anyplace else. Oh well, nobody said it was gonna be easy.
To the good times!
(BTW...still PA in the Kaywoodie.)
I can't believe it! You actually managed to accurately summarize the last several hours of this thread! Simply amazing.
This alone is why he doesn't have 2000 posts, just saying !
