    Merry Christmas to all and to all a Good Merlorning! Welcome back OC did you find Mrs Calabash whilst you were away? ;) Tried having a pipe but it's ranging anywhere from -1 to 3 F with wind so it's not much fun only got through less than 1/3 bowl of His Master's Choice in the MM Diplomat with plum Forever Stem. Levi has had his ablutions and Christmas Breakfast and has returned to serious lump status with a Woolrich woolen blanket thrown over him for good measure. It's a beautiful day in PSF Land, the smoking lamp is lit, please send heat! :confused: Currently quaffing PRM #4 with #5 coming shortly.............

    That would be great, as a five year old in the late '70s, I had one of my early, feverish boyhood crushes on Margaret Thatcher. Don't worry though, I cured myself with rather a rough bout of Communism that would mat Stalin look a moderate. But those days are over now and I put myself slightly left of Cynical

    Merry Christmas! I'm 10 pages back and smoking CH in a cob and drinking Community coffee. Car is packed and we are ready to go. I'll catch up on WAYS when we get to Miami. The warm weather in south Florida will get me into a Tropical Island state of mind (1 day and a wake up)!

    Merry Christmas everyone! My wife gifted me this lovely Alexander Zavvos poker (admittedly I pointed her in the right direction!) which I just subjected to its first smoke - RL Tree Mixture! Have a great day all

    Merry Christmas to all,

    Getting back in my routine after a few screwy days. Drinking coffee, and smoking Dark Flake Aromatic in the little Squatch that Spill had Todd make for me.

    Sail regular in a tilshead prince. I'm surprised I don't see more folks smoking this blend.

    Many thanks for the assist Highstump. Not counting cobs most of my pipes are estate so I haven't really broken in many new ones, a Sav 641 KS Erica Fiamma being the most recent. CH and 1/2 bowls are normally SOP for me but I wanted this pipe dedicated to Va so I thought I'd try this out; however, a sprinkling of CH could improve the process. Merry Christmas.

    Morning all. A crispy 17 degrees in Louisville this morning. Mac Baren Silver Cube in one of my Pete 999s this morning w/ coffee. After a walk with the cattle dog we're off to my mother's house about an hour away for Christmas lunch. This evening I'll begin breaking in my Tim West freehand while the Rekamepip gets a break.

    Back to work the last two days of the week. Should be easy ones with most of the place off for the holidays. I'll work these and take off others when things are much tougher and I get a better return on investment.

    Merry Christmas PSFers.

    Fortunately (or unfortunately, however you look at it) I have one of each of these in the cellar. :)

    I sometimes describe myself as "left of sensible".

    I think I lost a good grip on sensible shortly before the Thatcher episode, what's it like?

    Merry Christmas PSF, I woke up at 5:30 this Christmas morning with Samantha the cat pouncing on my belly. I'm still not sure what that was all about, but now she's sleeping sound and I'm smoking Pirate Kake in a WO Larson squaty bulldog. Lots of coffee of course.

    27 here this morning calling for a high of 50 and sunshine, not very Christmas like but it suits me just fine. Christmas dinner this year is a pork loin roast at the brother in laws, his wife is a great cook so I'm really looking forward to it.

    Greetings FlatbushPaul and fishnbanjo.
    -9c(16F) made for a short morning walk with Essence of Vermont in a MM Legend. I'm adjusting to winter by looking at it through a window with a cup of black coffee and a Peterson 80s burning Painter Hills. Sure snowed a lot here the past while.

    Merry Christmas my friends.

    My wife didn't want to get up this morning, so I've just been fiddling around the house drinking coffee. Smoked a cob full of Carter Hall earlier.

    Now I'm frying some deer sausage patties, Cajun home fries, and scrambled eggs. That'll wake her up.

    Hope everybody has a great day. I'll be posting Sasquatch pics as soon as my grubby little fingers get the box open...

    Melistmas all!
    Giving the present my brother gave me a first try. Not only that it slices Strang like cutting through butter, it's also pretty sharp-looking - what do you think?

    Strang in a Pete 302XL, coffee - lots of coffee on the side.
