    Nightcap still burning away in my Leonessa Briosa rusticated apple. My impression of the first smoke of Nightcap is that of a nice, rich English. Haven't had any Dunhill since I finished a tin of 965 back around Jan-Feb. They sure make a good English blend. Great stuff. Thinking of cracking the tin of Royal Yacht next...

    A while back I ruined the mediocre replacement stem that was on my Dunhill shell when I got it. So today I decided to try and remedy that. I found a few Cumberland stem blanks in the shop, picked one that was close,drilled and fit a tenon and started sanding.

    I'm pretty proud of how it came out, it's amazing how well things go with a little patience. Now I realize this is no professional restoration, or factory correct replacement but I think it looks ok and will do for now.

    Smoking it now full of well aged nightcap after dinner coffee on the side. It's smoking great.:banana:

    Braves lead the Indians 2-0 in the :dkn:, Brewers lead the Bucs :dkn:-4 in the :dkn:, A's and Tigers are tied 3-3 in the :dkn:. I sense a pattern developing here. Well, thanks to FishnBanjo, I'm smoking Dunhill Deluxe Navy Rolls in a 1998 smooth medium bend Peterson Limerick 69 with a nickel band. A bottle of Cheerwine is my drink.

    Tonight's my boy's first birthday :D We had my mom and brother over for dinner, as they are the only family in town right now and it was nice. His big sister was more excited about it than him, I think!

    Now it's time to wind down the evening with a bowl of McC 3 Oaks Original in the 2012 Dunhill Shell 3102. I think I might have a small taste of Bulleit Bourbon on the side. Maybe...
