    Working and listening to MLB talk, but will switch to old radio shows before too long. I'm smoking Old Dark Fired in a 1984 black sandblasted straight Dunhill Shell 4103 Billiard. Ice water chilled to the proper temperature with honor student icebergs is my drink.

    Trying to decide whether or not to open a tin of Louisiana Red. I don't have enough VaPers open right now, but I'll be getting a shipment of more Sutliff blends to review in a week or two, so maybe I'll wait and see what's in that package first.

    Onyx (thanks, FishNBanjo!) in the Squatch prince. Slightly cool generic cola because my floaty l'il icebergs are on strike.

    If you had listened to me and sent them to obedience school, you wouldn't have this trouble.

    Still working and now smoking Blend No. 5 in a 1949 medium bend Dunhill Shell.

    Getting ready to listen to Gunsmoke and then the Green Hornet as I work. Just a minute or two away from smoking Barbados Plantation in a 1979 no name French briar smooth full bend egg.

    Good morning! Getting started with Nutty Cut in the Pete 305 and a couple mugs of black 8 O'Clock 100% Columbian. Going to be a busy week at work, finishing getting classroom computers setup and assorted fires put out. Oh, and the kids will be starting back in school this week, too. :beyes:

    Have a great day, all!

    Well, it's good night for me. I arose in the daytime with much to do. Strted the day with IRC Three Star Green in a grabow with a milder coffee than usual because I woke up grumpy.nbg
    Have been smoking 10 Russians in the Pete since. Signing off with more 10 Ruskies, mixed with a bit of JKP, in the Lat assigned Grabow.

    A good few years ago a friend of mine in the USA posted across some tobaccos. One of these was a small box of Granger with a note that said "Codger burley". I've let it sit, preferring my staple diet of Vas & Vapers. This morning I was nosing around in the cupboard & found it so thought it was time to give it a try. I loaded an old Pete (my first pipe) & am having at it. Interesting - none of the burley bitterness, just a kind of toastiness. It's OK but I wouldn't seek it out.

    Right now I'm trying a few more of the local OTCs - the cost of imported tobacco has become almost prohibitive as the local currency has weakened. Had a local B&M blend earlier that wasn't bad. I'll keep looking but the idea is to find a local "all day" tobacco & stretch my cellar of imported tobacco.
