    Eric, all I can say is, WOW, drooled on my shirt. On the front porch, large mug #2 of French Roast, smoking EMP in a GBD New Standard straight grain billiard.

    Packing my second bowl of the day: Sail Regular (Yellow) in an MM straight Washington Cob. More coffee on the side :puffy:

    A relatively mild day here, 40 (F) and sunny.
    Will be checking the mail shed in about an hour or so. Expecting my MM Eaton and Pony Express to be delivered. :th1:

    Just enjoying a bowl of MB ODF in the Pete 304, which has definitely become my go-to pipe!

    Just finished a nice lunch, and thanks to Eric Pierson, I am now smoking Sail Yellow in a 1982 smooth straight Sasieni Ivory 105 Apple. I'm liking this blend. A bottle of Nesbitt's Orange soda is my drink.

    I did manage to get some work done, but I'm getting stir crazy in this apartment. I'm going for a walk in the park and will bring the Granito stuffed full of Old Dark Fired. I think I need to get my body moving to get my brain to do the same.

    1792 in my meer lined La Rocca. It might be chilly outside, but relighting this flake every 5 seconds is keeping me warm lol.

    Glad to read your opinion. I can tell I'm smoking an English blend, but the factors I don't like about English blends are not there. So it is the perfect choice for me when I am in the English mood.

    Just got back from the mail shed with my two new MM cobs: an Eaton and a Pony Express. Both tiny little pipes and the only difference between the two is that the Eaton is unfinished (natural.) I've really been into small bowled cobs lately.

    Currently enjoying some Sir Walter Raleigh in the Eaton :puffy: I'm not normally a clencher, but this thing is so light that it clenches perfectly :)
    Smokes great too.

    Hello all and good evening!
    My HU order came in a little earlier, just a little replenishment order - 4 tins of Dockworker, a tin of Haymaker and a big tin of IMAGINE, got a sample of that one a while ago and liked it a lot. Hans also sent me samples of 3 blends I haven't tried so far. HU English Breakfast, and 2 blends he especially created for the members of a dutch pipesmokersforum - PRF Janneman Flake (VaPer) and Brullende Leeuw (Brüllender Löwe, Roaring Lion). Hans also included a HU Pen - pretty cool.

    Needed a sweet smoke, so it's Rum and Maple in a smooth straight late 1970s Tinderbox Selected Grecian Briar Dublin. Going to clean some pipes now.

    There are things I really like about Captain Black Royal and things I like about McClelland 5120. So yesterday I got a wild hair and took about 1/4 ounce of each and did a 50/50 blend. So far I love it.

    That's a very nice tobacco. I put in a order from IRC recently for their Old Colonial and Va Flake.

    Now smoking some Prince Albert in a Tall Cob :puffy:
