    Right on!

    I've had an anxious and stressful day, despite nothing especially bad happening. Just locked up in my head and my worries.

    Unwinding finally, and thoroughly enjoying a nice bowl of Best Brown #2 in the Viking. Just deep cleaned the pipe stem with alcohol then rinsed it well and swabbed it dry. De-funked and ready for action in just a few minutes. Don't need any salt and alcohol overnight nonsense with this one. I'm liking this pipe more the more I smoke it. Think I may just get a Falcon, too.

    Two days into Codger Week and already the character of the blend I'm smoking is changing on me. Or rather, I'm noticing different things in it.

    I'm enjoying it a lot! This is my favorite blend of all, or has been frequently identified as such, and yet I haven't reviewed it on TR. At the end of the week I will :)

    BB#2 in the Viking. Have to go the extra mile cleaning this pipe to keep it fresh, but it's holding up better than a traditional briar. Just re-rewaxed my Paykoc billiard and didn't want to smoke it right now, also didn't want to smoke that large a bowl this late.
