    Congrats to you, Harry!

    About to light up a bowl of Royal Yacht in a smooth almost full bend 1981 Briar Workshop round volcano signed by Elliott Nachwalter with a gold acrylic stem. Coffee just finished brewing, and I'm going to work some more.

    Well...-10C feels like -19C, which is a bit warmer than it was the past two days (we were down at about -30 last night). I guess I'll give it a go, since I just washed all my longjohns and wool socks. The other day someone (Berg *cough*) made mention of GH Dark Flake Unscented, which got me thinking, which got me popping the tin I've had since August 2012, dried on the Dapper Dan mat from SorringOwl & Sons. It's going in the Brebbia Serie 1960 Sabbiata Nera. I've also opened some Chianti Ruffino this evening, so the Mayor will approve. Here's to winter!

    Went to the beach and had a nice time with the wife and baby, let the dogs run around off leash and have some fun. Enjoyed a bowl of Bald Headed Teacher in a Bjarne bent bulldog and a bowl of Shortcut to Mushrooms in a Country Gentleman

    Stonehenge in a Ser Jacapo. It smells like mushrooms and chocolate. Someone suggested drying it until crispy--I think it's better like that. Only my second time smoking it, but I like it which is a problem since it's hard to find.

    Adv. By Morse is a really good radio series. I hope you have all the episodes. If you don't, you can get them here for free: https://archive.org/details/AdventuresByMorse52Eps2Promos52Eps There are a very few I Love a Mystery shows, too. Have you ever listened to those?

    A bowl from the remnants pouch in the Falcon. This stuff has become fairly burleyish lately. Not near as much latakia as I usually have in there. Water heated up by much-warmer-than-outside li'l icebergs is wetting my whistle.

    Taking a very short break to get another cup of coffee. I'm now smoking Anniversary Kake in a smooth 1979 Chippendale (Charatan second) Rhodesian 49. And listening to The Jack Benny Program from my own collection. Next is an audio book of misc. short stories by Mark Twain.

    One thing we can't do is the chill the great outdoors to the proper temperature. Maybe we should speak to Stormy about that?

    Earlier tonight it was Compton's York Full Mixture in a Davorin Medium Bent Billiard with hot English Breakfast tea. Then I had Edgeworth Sliced in a Kaywoodie Monterey Mission Briar 55 Bent Billiard that was sold as a "Dad's Pipe". Now I'm smoking a treat, J.P. Couvert Semois in a Kaywoodie 8822 Aged Bruyere Billiard. Earthy is the word that comes to mind and I can see this being a problem. I am really loving this tobacco with not a clue how to get more!:(

    It's after 9pm and I'm still awake? This is an alarming trend.

    I don't know who I dislike more for having Edgeworth Slices to smoke: :mad:Spillproof or Flatbush Paul. Grumble, grumble, grumble, whine, moan, and complain. :bbaby:

    Guess I'll just suffer mightily through this bowl of Germain's Brown Flake in a 2002 medium bend smooth Rinaldo EGEA 03 Silver line spigot 10. Wish I had the recipe or samples of ES, so I could try and talk the Sutliff guys into making a match for it. I did find out today that they will be introducing new Sutliff blends, along with MacBaren blends this year. Guess who'll taste test them?! I threw in a couple of ideas for blends, and am hoping they'll make them.
