    Funny you should mention your old man; I'm at my parents' house for the week of Christmas. I don't drink Blanton's by myself. :D But yeah it's the best, probably my favorite bourbon out there. It can hang right in there with Pappy Van Winkle and the like. And such a classy bottle design too!

    Hello. Smoking something like my sixth bowl of Special Latakia Flake today, this time in a Wally Frank Canadian. This must be what it's like to be Wicker Man, minus the Yorkshire accent and the voodoo dolls, lol.

    Cooled down to 30F here, with a very slight breeze; supposed to only get up to 40F here tomorrow, with 15 mph winds, so it will be almost like it's winter time. :D We had a white Christmas last time around. That won't happen this time, but I'll enjoy it just the same. And then I'm off to New York City. Time for a little fun.

    Maybe the absence isn't such a bad thing if it stresses you out this bad. Vent away - you won't bother us.

    The marinara sauce is made and will be ready for the calamari and shrimp. The bacala is still soaking but will be ready, it's been soaking for 3 days already. The New Zealand cockles are waiting to give their love to the linguini alle vongole. The main star of the show is Dover Sole. I'll be making it 2 ways, breaded and fried, also, I'm going to broil some with lemon and capers with garlic and parsley. I already made a seafood salad with scungilli, calimari, shrimp and scallops with gaeta olives, celery, onions, parsley, white wine vinegar, garlic, lemons and olive oil.
    Family will be arriving early afternoon and it'll be a great day! Lots of love!
    I'm relaxing now with a great smoke. SG FVF from 1999 in the Dunhill Group 6 Ring Grain Billiard. There's a lot of love in this pipe right now!

    Just finishing Full Virginia Flake in a slight bend 1968 group 4S Dunhill Shell 475 cherrywood. Going to quit work early and read more of my book on Orson Welles. Going to feed Suzy and Molly, and get a new smoke.

    Just lighting up a bowl of Royal Yacht in a 1982 smooth straight Dunhill Root Briar 31051. Probably should have picked a bigger pipe, but I'll do that on my next smoke.

    Dunhill royal yacht in a Viprati. Boy, when sipped, this blend can be so sweet. Not shy on nicotine, either...

    Morning folks. Squeezing in some Presbyterian Mixture in the straight Falcon, hopefully not my last smoke before heading off to my parents for a pipeless Christmas :-(

    It's not the first time we done that, my friend. Merry Christmas to you!


    I was right that I picked too small a pipe for my last smoke. I'm making up for that this time with Tilbury in a 1980 black sandblasted full bent Ascorti Business Extension Saxaphone. Now, back to Orson Welles!

    No work tomorrow, so I'm still drinking coffee and just loaded the Hilson with some C&D Autumn Evening.

    A hazy Christmas Eve morning here. Going to get hot today. I'm nursing a bowl of Chelsea Morning in an Ashton billiard a good friend gifted me. Great with morning coffee (my second cup). So the Christmas cooking starts today - I have a large gammon to cook for 5 hours. And the bird is defrosting. It's all systems go here at Casa Muddler. We have a family gathering to open gifts this evening - a big & festive affair. Great fun.

    Yesterday evening I took a dive into my tobacco cellar to get a couple of jars of bulk Va (McC 5100 & Old Gowrie) & realised with a shock that the bulk Va's have been heavily depleted this year. So I have my first New Year resolution - to add another 20lbs (or so) of bulk Va into the cellar.
