    I am getting hooked on that August blend.
    I don't know if it's the blend or the Rekamepip pipe but several times I think it's has gone out only to find that there is NO tobacco left in the pipi not even ash.:confused:

    Now enjoying some Triple Play in the Tim West Panel with Plateau top, don't know what it is about ropes, plugs, flakes and c/kakes but it seems they satisfy me more than other tobacco's, is that wrong? :popc:

    I've had some drying out since this afternoon, so I'm ready for Strang as my after dinner smoke! But right now this Red Cake just keeps going and going and going and going and going and going...

    The Red Sox lead the Dodgers 4-0 in the 8th, and the A's and O's are tied 1-1 in the 8th. I'm smoking Dunhill Deluxe Navy Rolls in a very early Ascorti straight New Dear KS billiard with a smooth shank. A bottle of Mountain Dew is my drink.

    You're right Stormy. The more I smoke August Blend, the better I like it. Perhaps, in part, because when it's gone it's gone. Simon, smoke some Strang for me, if you get a chance. Right now, I'm smoking Gawith & Hoggarth Kendall Kentucky in my Yves St. Claude Fantaisie. I need to refill my lemonade.

    Evening gents. It's just doesn't stop this week. Get home late after a 12 hour shift and almost didn't check the mail. Hot damn what a mistake that would've been.

    :toast: Berg. I don't care what P2 says about you, you're alright. :th1: the boss lady doesn't understand why I got so excited. I've got the next three days off. Planning on some serious smoking now.

    Just got back after spending the day at the beach and exploring East Lime and Norwich. What a great time!
    Now some proper Christmas Cheer (99) in a Cob. First bowl that has treated me well!

    Burns much slower than your dust blend huh? well, in germany it's past midnight so I have to smoke it now...but since we're not going for synchronized Strang smoking, lagged smoking is even cooler - it only extends the Strang Night.

    August in Florida is not for outdoor pursuits unless they involve pools, oceans or libations. Lightning has made the trip to the park a no go all afternoon...now its early evening, cloudy and still there is lightning withjn five miles. Too close for climbing on big metal play items.

    So I finally let the kids play a video game and I am outside, in the screened innporch, halfway through the first bowl of Black Irish X I have had in quite some time. I think I need a lie down and a gallon of water...it is stronger than I remember.

    Of course I have been smoking lighter blends that I wouldn't have touched a year ago as well as kicking the regular snus use.

    Can't be a Codgerly Effect, because I also prefer all those "specially treated" tobaccos.
    Or is it? :eek:

    Just finished up some SWR while sipping rum and watching the pregame festivities for the Rangers-White Sox game. It was great because of Bo Jackson. I'm as giddy as a school girl over that guy. I think I'll go for some CH next and more rum while flipping between Rangers baseball and Cowboys preseason football.
