    There is no flaw to the plot. Mr. Wooly fled the concert as soon as Mick's proctologist showed up wearing rubber gloves! I mean it was prudent to leave when you're missing your pants!

    I'm sure you'd know that from all the skirts you're used to wearing.

    Davidoff Scottish Mixture in a Savinelli Toscana 122 ...

    OK, the pipe looks pretty good from this angle ... nice wide chamber. But believe me: from any other angle you'll quickly see that it's taken a whole bottle of ugly pills. This is one homely pipe. But it's a fantastic smoker. Definitely in my top 5.

    The Dav Scottish is another unsung hero. Very plain on the one hand, but some nice hefty weed underneath with what the French would call terroir. Another advantage Francophone pipe smokers have is that they immediately recognize this tobacco has a certain je ne sais quoi. I don't know what that expression means, but it does have a certain I-don't-know-what about it.

    Since Paul's in need of redemption, I'm smoking Three Friars in a 1980 black rusticated rough top Jobey E27 Stromboli extra egg-shaped poker. Hope we don't get sent to the Group W bench. I believe Thuber's still there, and it's been while since anybody's seen him.

    Homely pipes need love too. And I'm not completely sure, but I think je ne sais quoi translates literally as "Jenny says what???"

    Just popped the bread into the oven. Looks like this is going to be a pretty loaf. So I'm loading up Peretti Midnight in the Squatch scoop for what'll probably be the last pipe of the night.

    One more smoke before sleep, and it's Top Shelf in a slight bent black pattern etched 1977 Lorenzo Lorsan Sigma level top with a gray swirl colored stem. Going to do some more reading now that I've fed Suzy and Molly.

    Morning folks. After a restless night, I'm trying desperately to stove my head into some kind of wakefulness as I've got family visiting and housework needs doing. Uber-strong coffee and Maltese Falcon in a bent MM Legend doesn't seem to be doing the trick.

    Hang in there, BL. You might need a half-dozen or so repetitions. We're all pulling for you.

    Tucking into some MB Virginia Flake in a Dunhill Prince. This tobacco used to have zero flavor when I first tried it. Nowadays it's quite pleasant. A nice caramelized sugar note, and it cakes like nobody's business: rock hard and glistening. Maybe it's one of those Virginia tobaccos with a naturally high sugar content (25%), I'm guessing. The MB website says there's also a touch of burley in there.

    That sounds about right the way things are going. Another MF and bucket of coffee hasn't done the trick. Just having the last of the Haddo's Delight to see if that helps. If nothing else I should turn back to being human from my hermit crab form by the morning.
