    I'm still in awe of your score. I have been thinking about it all day. You, sir won the piper's lottery.

    Believe me, no one is more surprised than I am ... I'm not what you would call a "lucky" guy but when she said "all of them for $38" I felt like I hit the lottery. All I could do to play it cool and calm and get the hell outta there!

    Special Latakia Flake in my Ser Jacopo Delecta bent apple. Very good, wish there was a bit more latakia, reminds me of Penzance---with less latakia.

    Forgive me, it came up when I was really new here, were you the one whose mother-in-law saw pipe smoking as an excuse to smoke the worlds stankiest cigarettes?

    This is sad news. I understand, but I gotta say that Wicker Man is pretty much the coolest internet personality I've come across since I started on the internet in 1995.

    I'd been thinking I'd change back to my old avatar soon, but since learning this I might keep the Beefheart with yoga pants and pipe clenched between my butt cheeks forever.

    I'm smoking Sextant in my own Shaman pipe finally inside for once. Since I'm at my mom's, she lets me smoke in the basement.

    So , it's freakishly warm for this time of year .. 66 degrees . I'm on my porch wearing a pair of shorts for Petes sake ! Its perfect weather for a Virginia flake and I'm smoking a damn good one ! My Savinelli Tevere [ 114 KS ] is a nice sized bowl and I'm about a quarter way into this Reiner Golden Flake stuff ..... my thought so far is that , because it has a little Burley in it [ Jennifer hates burley ] , maybe she wont smoke any and I'll get to smoke it all ! Elegant stuff and a very happy Ruffino :) .. this is the type of blend you can get lost in and people will see ya glazed over and drooling , thinking theres a problem , but theres no problem . The only problem would be that someone brings you " out " . Lovely blend

    Now sitting down to enjoy a bowl before before bed after having conquered the alarm system. Our home alarm which was installed some time ago, started beeping tonight for an undetermined reason. After some internet research and trial and error, it no longer beeps. Can sleep peacefully now (I probably would have slept fine but my better half surely would not which means...)

    Just brewed a cup of hot tea to the proper temperature, and am about to light up a bowl of Virginia Spice in a black 1997 Brebbia Jubilee 925 silver banded grain sandblast briar calabash. More work to do now.

    Ah, sorry, like I said I was pretty new at the time. I definitely remember someone telling a story about pulling out a pipe and then their mother-in-law saw the opportunity and pulled out the worlds worst smelling cigarettes.

    Now I kinda want to know who that was.

    Alright, having some Nightwatch in a twin-bore Radice. This weather map is definitely looking pretty righteous, but I wish I was in the purple and blue part:

    Tornado watch here, but I don't see that happening, so I'll just sit and enjoy the show.
