    I called into the MLB talk show on the XM and they let me talk for five minutes about the steroid subject. At the end of the call, when they went to break, the hosts said my call was the best call on the subject they've ever had! :D For those who are interested, I'll be autographing pictures in the lobby after the show! The Saint Bernard will be happy to usher you to my table. :rolleyes::cool::laff: An half hour later, one of the hosts (Darren Sutton) said I was a wise and impassioned caller. My autograph fees just went up five bucks!!! They keep pitchin' and I keep foolin' them!! :xd:

    It was worth not smoking for the time I was on the air, but I'm making up for it starting with this bowl of Metropolitain in a 1981 smooth full bend Mauro Series Two 315 p-lip that copies the Peterson system.

    Smoking Kentucky Club Continental Blend in my "Duca Carlo" Savinelli bulldog I got new for $38 at a tobacco shop in Florida in late May. KCCB never fails to satisfy me. Such a tasty mild, bite-free aromatic with tons of creamy smoke with a hint of coconut. Seems to be such an overlooked tobacco...

    Still working, and now smoking Maple Street in a 1980 raw sienna light relief Rossi 1886 Visconte 245 Oom Paul with an Amber colored stem. The maple and rum taste is good and not overwhelming. A very pleasant smoke.

    Maple and Rum could be dangerous, I may have to report you to the commissioner.

    Well sending the grandson off to daycare, so now I can start the heart with a little Plum Cake In the Country Gent, and double coffee with creme from my daughters fancy coffee maker, I will throw in a shot of expresso for good measure.

    I also have a Diplomat that I like and am thinking of ordering a couple of Prides, since they are a natural cob. I love these cobs, but when I get back home at the end of September I look forward to acquiring a briar.

    Thankfully the football season is upon us. So, tonight with the friend I had a bowl or Molto Dulce and a bowl of Conesures Choice. Was kind of nice too!

    You can't because Gordon is at stately Wayne manor talking to millionaire Bruce Wayne about some weird cave beneath his house.

    Several weeks ago I ordered a slew of MMs. The Pride turned out to be my favorite, and it's one of the least expensive. It smokes beautifully, and that bristle feels great in the hand. Weighs only 24 gm so it's a perfect dangler.

    I might order a dozen Prides to get the discount. That should last me for the remainder.

    Fresh MB Plumcake in a Bjarne Viking ... the hint of Syrian latakia in this one is outstanding.

    I hadn't ordered that one yet for fear of disappointment. Now I'm encouraged.

    The really old Rum & Maple used to have a trace of Syrian latakia. And that fantastic casing. No use crying about past glories I suppose. Would be nice, though, to once again walk down to the drugstore and buy a packet of Blue Boar. For 25 cents. Yeah, the premium stuff was a bit pricier.

    Still huffing on Plumcake in a Bjarne ...

    I never smoked Rum and Maple because I was never into those kinds of blends until recently. I'm still predominately a straight Virginia and VaPer smoker, but Maple Street is a good tobacco at a good price, and I recommend it.

    Finished my Chinese Tv Series (Yip Man) 50-45 min episodes in all, during tonight's final round I had 2 bowls of McB Navy Flake in the La Reserva 272 USR bent pot,
    and more ice tea, off to sleepy land for a little while.
    Good Morning PSF'ers:D

    On my second bowl of Plum Cake this morning, love this smoke, still not sure I like the VA Flake, but will give it another go this afternoon. Taking a break from tying flies to get ready for a trip to southern France.

    Good morning everyone. Monday. First smoke of the week is Three Part Harmony in the silver banded straight pot briar coveted by MDaws79 which makes it special to me Suffolk. Black coffee to drink of coarse. Have a good day everyone.
