Happy Friday morning.

Time for another new blend.

Germain Rich Dark Flake in the newer Country Gentleman. This is the last of the RDF....which means I now have a free jar! Woot

sunny but cold - cheers all Wicker Man
After a breakfast of flap jacks and coffee there's nothing finer in the Carolina’s than a bowl of McClelland Virginia Woods in a billiard...
I'm enjoying a big bowl of MacB Navy Flake in my system premier 303. I'm watching the snow and reading some Holmes before it gets too bad out.
S&G Lakeland Mixed with a cup of lighter coffee. Very nice for a morning smoke.
PS Proper English, first time trying this one, not bad as an afternoon smoke, and a cup of tea, moved more of the dirty white stuff around!
Smoking my poor attempt at recreating Oriental Silk in a £15 Blakemar. Poor recreation, but a decent enough blend. Think I'll leave the blending to the experts.
As cold as it is, I thought your native tongue was stuck to the flag pole.
Home again! Suzy and Molly were waiting at the door and both attacked my feet and started biting and playing. It sure feels good to be missed, but better to be home with them.
Smoked two bowls of London Blend this morning in a 2013 MM straight Legend. Now, it's Louisiana Red in a 2003 black grain etched Karl Erik Ekstravagant horn. Might even smoke a cigar tonight.
Frank's Mixture in a straight Blakemar freehand. Got to love a Blakemar.
This is the 7th time I've seen Arlo in concert. He was slicker in presentation this time, but his voice sounded the best I've ever heard. I have to tell you this story, which I posted elsewhere:
A very touching moment near the end of the concert was when a lady in the crowd yelled, "Arlo! I named my son after you." Guthrie looked puzzled and said, "Really? Poor kid!" The audience starting laughing and the kid, whose 9th birthday is tomorrow, ran down to the front of the stage. Arlo wished him a "Happy birthday." A moment later, another lady yelled, "Arlo! I named my son after you, too." And that kid, who looked almost exactly like the other Arlo, ran down to the stage next to the first kid. Arlo talked to them for a few minutes and then finished the concert. I wonder what he was thinking when he saw those kids named after him? Must have been a surreal moment for him.
My Grandmother refused to drink any tea unless it was Gunpowder tea. She was very disappointed when she could no longer find it available and had to switch to something else. When I was little we would have tea parties with her Gunpowder tea. Thanks for the memory.
Kong Christian Caribic Rum.
Watching the snow. Cleaning pipes. Borkum Riff in a Pete 314.
