    There is a new Savinelli Canadian with BEAUTIFUL grain that keeps trying to follow me home from my local tobacco shop :). How do you like yours? I may pick it up today....

    Good morning all, hope everybody has a beautiful day. Sunny here but nippy wind. Been sitting on the front porch with some PA in a cob, then in the Pete. Have to come in ever so often to get more pg tips . Waiting on that truck to bring my order from p&c today for my monthly ration of pipe tobacco. retirement is good but the once a month SS payday sucks.

    Kendal Dark in a L'Anatra billiard, PG Tips on the side

    edit: it was a fine smoke, but I've got a bit of a chest cold and a stuffy nose, so I'm probably only going to have one or, at most, two more smokes today. Gotta enjoy what I can! Now it's off to the library to get some homework taken care of.

    Pulled a double shift last evening, so, its flap jacks and coffee to start the day and a bowl of RLP-6 to ease into it...

    Rewarding my work well done with some medium flake in the painted cob....:shead: 104_0404.JPG


    our daughter just moved so she was having some of her items dropped off at our house
    kids toys, spare tires and other assorted junk from her garage

    1 item being returned to us was our deep freeze

    well needless to say the people delivering the stuff to our house got the address mixed up ( idiots )
    but yet followed instructions to put said items underneath the back porch...

    several days had past and i grew concerned that the deep freeze may have been stolen

    then we get a telephone call from our next door neighbor stating that they found a whole bunch of boxes and various other items..... Underneath their back porch ! asking if may be ours or if we had seen who put that stuff there, This lady was very concerned due to the deep freeze reeking with odor and she was afraid to open it up to find something bad.....


    our neighbors hate us


    so that is what i've been doing this morning and deserve a break

    Rain again - and the fruit trees rejoice again. Got in some McC Orient 996 in the smooth bent rekamepip fruitwood pipe that brings out the best in this blend. Separated and replanted the only strictly ornamental plant I ever get: a 4-cell variety pack of coleus that had TEN actual plants. Armando the rooster keeps crowing in between rain bands, to my amusement.

    Essence of Vermont in a MM Legend. It's been warm while I was away, most of the snow melted. Cloudy, so can't see the rocks this morning. +2C(36F)H83%​

    I'm on the map. Most of the time I'm in southern Alberta. http://pipesmokersforum.com/community/pages/memmap/
    My morning view is usually the Rocky Mountains (the rocks). Family home is in the Ottawa Valley/Lanark Highlands, Ontario, which is where I was the past week.


    Got foggy for a while this morning and now it's just heavy cloud, rocks are still hiding. Painter Hills in a Peterson Canadian is turning in to a a very nice smoke right now. +6C(43F)H80%

    Smoke one for me ladies and gents, I just got home after driving myself to urgent care after leaving the office. Prognosis - my back is jacked up pretty bad. Can't stand, can't sit. Constant pain with sciatica, not having a rad day.

    Black House in a Sas, and finishing off the Maxwell House. Wife's Birthday is tomorrow and being the good Hubbie that I am, I new just what she wanted (I asked her). Cash. So after work I'll need to sit and OHH and AHH at the clothes she's out getting. When will women realize that men would prefer them without clothes?!?!? Oh well, another mystery of life.

    Dang, I have been dealing with chronic back trouble for years and it is the worst. (Almost as bad as kidney stones).
    I have been there. It sucks!
    Rest up and feel better soon jfro.

    Everybody got up before me, so I'm the last one to eat. I'm half way through a bowl of Dunbar in a 1982 smooth straight Dunhill Root Briar 31051. And getting ready for this evening's reunion with a few old friends.

    Dinner was awesome. Pasta with fennel and salmon. Now I'm getting ready to smoke my after dinner bowl - Tudor Castle in the pre-republic Peterson Premier. Get well soon, Jfro!
