    After having a couple of Conies smothered with chili and cheese topped with chopped tomatos and cheese, I'm ready to spark up some Peretti's 9507 blend. It's just va and dubeck turkish. It's dark and woody and smooth. Also have a toot of some Dholkia Taj, thanks to T.Harris. Mild snuff and don't notice any nic, but nice scent. I had been looking for some samples of scented snuff to try and see if it would have any affect on me, heart, ect. It's been over 20 years since I did any and I think with moderation it will be ok. Was looking for some of the german menthol or GH brands. As tight as I am, I'd hate to spend a bunch on an order and end up not liking it. Ice cold lemonade is the drink of choice in this heat.

    I've set a blaze to a bowl of FMOT in my DGE Briar Nosewarmer. Drinking bottled water. Dinner is finished. Congratulations FNB on the milestone of hatred! I always say, "hate early and hate often"!

    Think I might go for a week of plugs and ropes.
    Starting the week with some Peterson's 3P in a Orlik Captain bulldog.

    Truth be told, I'm faking the ristretto. But the fake-out is being steadily refined under the expert tutelage of several barristas here in Tucson who work with $20K equipment and seem to know what they're doing.

    And to add to the humility, my equipment is manual: an aeropress. Yet with all the variables carefully controlled, I'm getting a respectable crema with almost no acid tailing. The real test for me is how my body handles it. And so far so good: I can down it before bedtime with no ill effects, and it settles my digestion rather than disrupting it. For me this ristretto style turns espresso into a health giving elixir.

    On a different front I need to find a cob mentor. Just ordered a boatload from Mars. Not knowing which ones to get I sprang for a mix of Legends, Prides, Washingtons, Dane Spools, and CGs. Having read the Corncob Primer I'm already feeling pretty savvy about cobs. We'll see how long that lasts. I just want to find a lightweight pipe that I don't have to think about, that I can reload repeatedly when I'm busy working.

    Lol, I thought about that, but in the morning will take it easy when I spark.

    You have made a darn good start with that. It's a no-brainer. Stuff and smoke. You will find your way within 5 secs.

    I exercised once. Nasty habit, that!!

    The Saint Bernard was delivering a new shipment of pipe tobacco to Mr. Wooly, so being the benign boss, I decided to get my own drink. However, my trusty pal did make sure the drinking glasses were chilled to the proper temperature before he went to warehouse #2.

    Now smoking Blue Danube in the very first pipe I ever bought ($2.95) in 1974; a smooth three quarter bend Dr. Grabow Omega. A bottle of Cheerwine properly chilled is my drink. Dinner will be ready soon, and I'll be ready for it! Lots of work to do tonight!

    Smoking some Kansas City in my Black Rock pipe, thanks to Recomempip. I can almost taste the images from the past as Native Americans, critters and the occasional Wooly Manmoth roamed over the area....Yuck! What was that that went Plop, Plop over my image of the past? An ice cold almost frozen lemonade will clear that image up.

    Bev gave me a sage piece of advice in my formative years: whenever you're seized with the uncontrollable urge to exercise, just lie down for 15 minutes until it goes away.

    Besides, think of all those 2-ounce curls you're doing in the span of any one day. And if you're a clencher, doesn't that qualify as isometric exercise? You're a bloody Olympic athlete, JimInks!

    Exercising my triceps by reaching for a tin of Davidoff Danish and a Peterson Lestrade ... whew!

    Hi,

    My body is home, but my head is still sitting on the dock. That was the longest pure vacation I've had in a while. I had a two hour Squatch full of Ogden's Walnut that Mr. Squared gave me, and a Semois cigar that Mr Waugh gave me on the ride home.
