    I abused the ever loving daylights out of a rusticated yellowbole pug (nosewarmer) with early morning pipe, macbaren navy flake (a one light down to fine ash and saying "hey, where'd the tobacco go?") night cap, and then beat on my apple meer with black cavendish in the wind while in the fields. When I got to the wind blocked hill, I lit up a few bowls of navy flake and night cap in a small bent apple briar. Back to the windy field, I dug out a Basil Meadows bullet cob and enjoyed carter hall with a few crumbs of navy flake to blast a bit more flavor into my mouth. Back home, wrapped up the day with a partial bowl of nightcap while I gathered up my tools and locked up my truck. Been fighting sleep since 5:30 pm.... it's been a LONG day, and I know I missed a few pipes and a few tobaccos in that list. I am impressed with the pug, though-no gurgles despite back to back bowls and zero rest time for six hours straight (or more.) Have a good night folks, I'm going to go finish my book.... or pass out with it in my hand.

    Don't worry, you don't have to worry about having to chase down a bunch of Brown Flake. There isn't any to be had. Someone here gifted me a tin, and I've been looking for the stuff ever since, but to no avail.

    That said, I'll have some Brown Flake in a Blakemar now. :)

    I was out of town all day and had such a good time I almost didn't mind having a dental appointment. My mother's cooking was a vastly greater, funner experience! Didn't smoke as much as usual, but the day's line up consisted of Louisiana Red in a 1984 black slight bend grain etched Savinelli Non Pareil 9310 poker, followed by Old Companion in a 1983 in a slight bend 1984 Stanwell Antique 124 grain etched with a smooth front.

    And now, thanks to my first ever trade, the very generous Ruffinogold sent me - among other blends - an ounce of 1970s Edgeworth Ready Rubbed in a 1970s three quarter bend half smooth, half rusticated Savinelli Autograph 4 with a lucite stem and ferrule. I'm amazed at the great flavor and just how close the Edgeworth Ready Rubbed Match is to the original. The real deal is a little fuller, a little deeper in taste, but the Match is definitely in the ballpark. Just terrific stuff! Many thanks to Ruffinogold for the opportunity to smoke this! Wow! :puffy:

    I should have noted the Savinelli is my own pipe, not sent to me in the tobacco trade. I'm moments away from smoking another tobacco from the same trade: SWR from 1975, which I will smoke in a 1970s medium bend grain etched Ben Wade Prominence B freehand.

    Went out to watch the Geminid Meteor Shower with a burley/latakia mix in a bent rhodesian. I'm having a heck of a time trying to get this pipe to smoke well, but its still a good adventure to keep trying. Despite the slight smoking setback, it was fun, and I even got a quick look at a good sized deer.

    Hope everybody has a good Friday
