    Starting the day off with a bowl of Solani Silver Flake in a Stanwell billiard and some coffee. Standing outside watching the comings and goings in the other townhouses.

    This is a great morning smoke, mild and slightly sweet. Nice and calming.

    Happy birthday psquared.

    I have taken pouches and tins both. I put all my smoking stuff in a clear ziplock in case I have to take it out, but they have never asked. I used to wrap the pipes in a folded paper towel and secure with a rubber band. Now I use some pipe socks someone knitted for me. Just as one of those paranoid things, I usually take pipes that can be replaced and don't have sentimental value just in case a bag disappears. It has never been an issue, and I have flown on international flights this way. On a technicality, I guess I have only taken pouches on an international flight.

    The first one is from this past weekend. The second one is from a trip to Alaska a year or so ago that was put in a calander, so please refer to me as Mr. December:blah:. The other two are pictures of one of my fatbikes and my wife's bike.

    Trying to smoke up the remains of some Maple street this morning in a Trypis twin bore billiard.

    That snail remindes me of the Priority mail service from P&C this year.

    Good Morning all. Smoking some Bayou morning in a Falcon. Hot PG tips tea to sooth my nerves while sitting here waiting to see if today will be the day I get my 2 orders from P&C! Been a week since I ordered everything from them and thought I'd save on shipping this time. Was agrivated in the first place because there was no Tracking or even any anything about it being shipped or on backorder. I know about all the snow and airports canceling flights, but between here and there is up and running. Oh well, I can be a grumpy old man, anyway, I've earned that in all these years and I don't even say "Get off my lawn".

    Many happy returns of the day. I really hope that weather lets up for you.

    Having some GH American Sweet Peach in the Parker Jockey Club, a fond reminder of why this is my fave aro.

    Up early for no good reason, so I decided to read and smoke. Almost finished smoking Angler's Dream in a 2013 medium bend Spillproof corndog cob. And going to get another smoke and a cup of hot tea.

    I'm finishing up my Astley's 44 in my Granito Mysterioso. Thanks MountMandolin. I have to buy more of this. If I had to choose between the 44 and the Reiner Long Golden Flake, I think I'd have to go with the Astley's, but they're both excellent. So many good tobaccos...how am I ever going to have time to smoke them all??

    Decided on smoking PS Cube Cut in a straight sandblasted black billiard 2013 PSF POY Kaywoodie with an amber colored lucite stem. Listening to the baseball talk on the XM. I'm surprised to hear Roy Halladay is retiring.

    Next up is some MacBaren Mixture Scottish Blend in a Savinelli Tundra 166KS.
    I really like the taste of MacBaren tobaccos, but have yet to smoke one that does not give me tongue bite in varying degrees.
    It seems worse when they are bought in pouches, but the tinned ones aren't exacctly bite free...
