Sounds like a great time! Wish it wasn't such a long drive, I'd love to participate.
Now for some McC 2010 in the 2012 Dunhill Shell 3102. I'm trying a few different types of tobacco to see which ones sing to me in this pipe. So far, the Scottish Cake is winning, but the trials are far from over
Bayou Morning in a Falcon. Lemonade on the side.
Burley/Black Cavendish/Latakia blend of my creation. Very tasty.
Evening folks. Big ole steak salad with a bunch of good veggies in there for dinner, and now some Exotique in a twin-bore Radice. Very satisfied.
6 year old C&D Comfort in a Stanwell bent Danish egg, with a little homemade peach shine!
You STILL haven't let that gnome out?!?!?!?!?!
Old Colonial in my Stanwell with a Budweiser.
FireDance Flake in the Peterson Dracula 69. This tobacco is another one of those that I decided to try when it was mentioned favourably here. Was not impressed by the smell in the tin when I first opened it but after some time in a jar and a few bowls full it certainly has grown on me. First impressions can be so wrong. Crushed ice over a meyer lemon teabag. Pretty much packed up whatever pipes and tobacco I'll take with me on the trip back east tomorrow. 16C(61F)H79%
CB in my cob, Bull Dog root beer, Amazing sunset. CH is next up.
Same for me, 1st smoke revolted me big time. After a few months in a jar bam it became a nice smoke.
Midnight in the Medico Apple. Lemonade is my drink of choice.
Carter Hall in a cob after a long work day.
Lemonade is one of my go to beverages too. Hooke on trader joes strawberry lemonade at the moment.
Evening PSF. Tonight it's Grasmere Flake in a pre-drought, MM egg with a grey swirled Forever Stem. The pipe still needs a bit of breaking in but it's a great smoke, and a smaller bowl than most of my briars which makes for a shorter smoke, and makes it easier to greet that 0500 alarm clock.
Perrier on the side and Maigret on the box
Got a little behind in my smoking, but now I'm half way through smoking HU Edward G. (thanks to FishnBanjo) in a 2003 medium bent straight grain Two dot 2 P. Ardor Venere Extra Bucaneve with a silver ferrule signed by Dorelio Rovera. I had dedicated this pipe to Three Nuns (nun of whom smoke) and it's been a while since I smoked it, but I'm glad I took out of the rack now. Ice water chilled to the proper temperature is my drink.
O's lead the Padres 2-1 in the 6th. Bucs and Braves won tight games, and Boston finally beat the Astros 15-10. The Braves have a 12 game win streak.
McB Navy Flake in the POY13, and ice tea, finishing up Dream On (6 seasons), then on to who knows yet..
Peterson Special Reserve 2012 in a Peterson Sherlock Holmes meerschaum. It's been raining and all the outside wet smells combined with this smoke is very pleasant. 14C(57F)H84%
Thanks to Marker, I'm smoking Royal Yacht in a smooth early Radice full bend crossgrain/bird's eye 2 dot Clear. The bowl is big and leaves me just enough RY for one more smoke. Listening to MLB talk on the XM, and catching up on some reading.
