Beautiful warm hazy day here. I'm packing my trout kit for a trip this week. Been a few weeks since I used it last & the usual panic of finding things set in. Eventually collected it all. And the weather forecast looks great - warm & sunny the whole week. Taking a break with Old Gowrie in a Pete.
Good morning everyone! Hofnar!
I'm starting this morning with a bowl of Blackwoods Flake in a Peter Kent English Bostic, made in London England and plenty of hot black coffee. I guess this pipe could be classified as a volcano or a freehand, but it is shaped like a checkmark. Haven't smoked it in a long time so will see how it goes today.
Mac Baren HH Acadian Perique in an Astleys Cutty ...
This stuff is delicious with every single pipe I've tried it in. So I'm now exploring my problem pipes, trying to get the Acadian to fail. So far unsuccessful. This blend is simply amazing.
Still looking for a pipe that M79 tastes good in. Unsuccessful with that, too ... smells good though.
Morning Coffee with a Pipe Full of Granger

Good morning everyone,
Morning coffee in the PSF mug, and a Black Rock Cob Full of Red Cake! (Black Cake would have been more appropiate...but there is no black cake...) ...if only I had a Red Rock...
Thank you John, for this awesome piece of stone.
Happy Birthday Hofnar!!
Happy Birthday, Hofnar!
Good morning, gents. CH in the Diplomat this morning, with lots of black coffee. Trying to amp myself up for work and it's just not happening.
Happy 55th Birthday Hofnar! I'll tip back some black Maxwell House coffee and fire up a bowl of Carter Hall in your honor this morning!
Smoking a bowl in the Derringer and catching up on a few pages. Today will be spent finishing the Rat Condo. Get that off the HoneyDo List and I can go back to having fun in the shop.
Happy Birthday Hofnar. Preparing to take a horseback ride with my wife, have some Motzek Strang on deck drying as the post-ride smoke. Good morning everyone!
oh yeah, haven't thought of that...and fortunately I happen to have a tin of that one!
After two bowls of CH I've decided to switch gears. I have some SWRA in the MM Hardwood. It's getting more common for me to just skip breakfast and have a pipe instead. I almost mean this literally with the way my stems are starting to look!
Well I'm starting out the day with Erinmore Flake in the Falcon. This was a good decision! Tetley tea on the side
Happy birthday brother.
My day was finished long before the Phillies were finished. But my wife was kind enough to wake me when we lost 12-7. What was that, the 15th inning? And they have a day game today, putting Roy Halliday on the mound. I had to listen to a portion of last night's game outside on the radio. Wife can't stand the smell of Old Dublin. And its becoming my favorite tobacco! This is not good.
Doing my best Doug Erwin impression this morning. Carter Hall, coffee, and a cob while sitting on the porch waiting for some kids to yell at. I'm trying to screw up the nerves to crack open either this tin of Penzance from 09 or the SLF. Maybe the Ten Russians.
I think Berg just sent them so he could watch me squirm. I'll probably open them to find them full of M79
Happy birthday, Hofnar!
Started the day with some Nutty Cut in the Pete 305, followed by some ODF in the Falcon. Getting ready to take the kids out for Chinese before they head to Mt. Desert for the day.
Have a great day, all!
FireDance Flake in a small anonymous bent meerschaum. Not a single vampire bug was seen or heard while out on this morning's walk. Overproof coffee out of the press over crushed ice and sweet cream. 16C(61F)H64%
