    I'm about to head out to meet my brother at the pub. I might not see him again before he heads back to Hong Kong. Hopefully we get a seat on the patio so I can smoke some McC 5125 Coyote Classic in my Altinok LVC. I'm mostly packed and ready to head out to Capt's gathering tomorrow.

    I don't understand the metal pipes. My Viking is one of my smallest pipes (if not in fact my smallest), and while it is larger than the Viking, the Falcon bowl isn't exactly large. Yet both pipes smoke astonishingly slowly. The Revor Plug, even sliced thin and rubbed out, lasted over an hour!

    Now on to something totally different....MacBaren Mixture in the System. When I bought it, my sister remarked that it was an extremely curly pipe, but she was disappointed that I didn't get the gourd calabash the store had which was "even curlier!"

    Braves lead the Cards 2-1 in the :dkn:, Rockies lead the Phillies 4-1 in the 8th, and Royals lead the White Sox 3-0 in the 6th. While I'm waiting for the FVF to dry, I'm almost finished smoking Rekamepip's August Blend in a 2013 slight bend grain blasted briar Rekamepip Volcano with a walnut shank. I also took some more photos of some of my pipes, which Thuber will post some time later.

    Memo to Rekamepip: I took a pic of the Briar Workshop pipe you wanted to see.

    Just had my 1st smoke of FVF, what a smoke this stuff is. Nice dark flakes with sugar crystals. This stuff is high in sugar, very sweet smoke and no bite at all. Very happy with this purchase.

    I'm joining in with David by smoking FVF in a smooth 2002 medium bend eight sided panel top straight grain Rinaldo Collection Silver Line F Egea 05 Titania bulldog. Cards now lead the Braves 4-2 in the Jim Beam inning.

    MB Acadian Perique in a straight MM Legend ...

    [​IMG]

    Literally the moment you light up, the flavor saturates your mouth. You gotta love perique. And it's nice and stinky, in the good way. Yet there sits SWMBO quiet as a lamb.

    The odd thing is ... this tin dates from 2010. My first bowl must not have been too memorable. But this bowl is sensational, just what I've been looking for. All the VaPers I've been smoking recently have failed to deliver except for this one. Even Flake Medallions had me snoozing the other night. My taste buds are obviously off. Time for a few cleansing bowls of M79 :whis:

    [​IMG] Hot and muggy, yuk. For the time being I have stowed the Latakia for a Vabur from Uhley's #44. in a Radice Rind paneled billiard. Pairing tonight with Mount Gay Black Label Rum and a fresh peach. Have a good evening.

    This never took off. I stopped at home for three minutes to drop off some stuff and pick up a pipe. DFS was the tobacco...had no time to prep the plug.

    I need a stronger aromatic for the car...to keep it smelling pretty and pipey...the Devils Holiday has never been my favorite.

    Of course, I need to finish some open tine before I try new stuff...because need more jars.

    Home from my three day sojourn to the mountains of western Maryland. Had a most relaxing time pretending that I was Thoreau and fishing for yellow perch in Deep Creek Lake. Smoked a lot and read and for the most part was disconnected from my daily life in the burbs.

    Am presently smoking some Elizabethan Mixture in a Loewe prince.

    Very nice.

    Your posts made me realize that the BC and Chacom pipes are definitely worth a look. I've got my eye on this one:

    [​IMG]

    The stamping on the Chacom is flawless. I've noticed that with the vintage pieces as well. I used to think the French makes were a bit unusual, but they're beautiful pipes once you get used to them.

    Still huffing on MB Acadian Perique ... what a smoke!
