    Peretti Century (again) in the cob. This is my first English blend and although I am not falling in love with it, I am intrigued and will be sampling another English soon...maybe Frog Morton or EMP????

    You can't go wrong with either of those two, but I personally prefer EMP.

    Up a little early for no particular reason. Stormy's here for a visit, and I didn't even notice until I went outside. Those silent, but deadly guys sure can be sneaky! Just finishing Old Vienna in a 1979 no name French briar smooth full bend egg, and going for a new smoke, and another glass of Simply Orange.

    Found out a neighbor received a package that was supposed to be delivered to us because the company put the wrong address on the label. This is the second time that's happened, though we didn't learn that until just now. When they come home, I'll go over and see what they say. If I get no results from the conversation, Fed-Ex will investigate. I don't know these people, but I know what I'm thinking at this moment. Might catch them as easily as I caught this bowl of Angler's Dream in a smooth 1998 Parker 489 three quarter bend Billiard.

    Jim, that really sucks. Hopefully they'll do the right thing and give you your package once they realize the mistake.
    Is it just sitting on their front step? I think you'd be within your rights to go over and get it. Since they aren't home, make a show of knocking on their door for a while first. Of course, if someone else sees you taking the package...might cause some problems.
    Then again it might be best to just wait til they get home. Maybe you could walk over there right as they're arriving and explain the situation.
    Anyway man that's frustrating.

    I know if I was in that situation I would have mailed the package back to sender, if I didn't recognize the name on the package. Keep an open mind and give them the benefit of the doubt, maybe nothing nefarious going on. I know one rule in conflict resolution is to give someone a way out before accusing them, its disarming and allows an admission of "wrong doing" with out admitting malice. So both parties get what they want, one gets the truth and the other gets to not get in trouble.

    Just about to smoke some McClelland 5100 Red Cake in my Va. dedicated MM cob.
    Nothing quite like slowly sipping the sweet Red Cake while lounging on the couch. :puffy:

    Just had some Irish Flake in the back garden, the charm offensive didn't work. A not so fond reminder that smoking outside in high winds isn't quite so accommodating as one would like.

    Once again, thank you for all the birthday wishes, it's very kind of you all. The cookie and the noteworthy thanks, though, must go to Wicker for the excellent birthday card and passport to the Holy Land - thanks boss.

    What happened is the company m'lady ordered from sent out two packages on Nov. 19, which never arrived. They sent out replacements, which were supposed to be here yesterday. When m'lady called the company this morning, she was told that the company typed in a "6" instead of a "5" as the last digit of our mailing address. Whoever lives across the street is not home right now, but I will go over when I see a car in the driveway and inquire. I plan on being cool, but two deliveries of two packages each, and silence from these people doesn't exactly sound good. If nothing results from my inquiry, the mailing company will have Fed-Ex investigate.

    While waiting for lunch, I'm smoking, thanks to Artistik, Virginia Woods in an early '70s pebble relief Savinelli 315 Prince. I've just enough left for one more bowl.

    Still sipping Red Cake in my newly sanded MM cob :puffy:

    Funny, but last night I decided to sand off the finish on the bowls of all my cobs. They look good as new, and maybe will get a chance to darken better without the varnish.
    Probably my imagination, but the sanded cobs seem to smoke even cooler than before. Hmmm, maybe I'll stain or paint a few of the bowls...I can never leave well enough alone haha :)

    That's true! I've met the creator and have corresponded a tiny bit, I should ask him if he's a pipe smoker. I've noticed a small number of pipe smokers in comics.

    A bowl of G H and Co Balkan Mixture in the Brigham rusticated apple. Smoked while doing a bit of yard work.

    I think I'm getting a little tired of this blend but I'm determined to smoke the last few bowls to free up a mason jar for the Solani Silver Flake. (GH & Co BM is still a great tobacco but Charing Cross is a similar and superior blend, in my opinion, so no point in having 4 or 5 variation of this type on my tobacco shelf)

    Really going full guns on work, need to get a draft wrapped up by tomorrow as the family is spending the weekend in Stratford. My days seem to be working full out until someone hands me a baby.
