Not quite what i had in mind - but for some strange reason i feel complete now
Here's something you should see if you never have!
Of course he deserves it! He'd have done the same for us! What are friends for if not to ?
Didn't know they made soft hearted bears in your part of the country!
Okay, okay. I'll give Thuber a break. He needs one with friends like us! But it must be noted that FishnBanjo would not trade a tin of Three Nuns for Thuber, a high draft pick, and cash. Maybe he's afraid Thuber will be a moderator someday??
Well, Thuber knows I'm just good naturedly kidding him. In fact, in his honor for being a good sport, I'm smoking Edward G. Robinson's Pipe Blend in a 1982 black sandblasted paneled slight bend Savinelli flat bottom sitter.
Got the SG Firedance dried out enough to burn--fired it up in the meer apple. Very nice!
Can't sleep so back on the medium flake, it's too hot for it methinks.
Just about to fire up some G&H Kendal Flake. Ive never had it before...Ive had the sample for nearly and year, and forgot about it. Smoking it in my "lakeland" pipe: a "McAndrews" billiard pot made up to look like a meer (white painted bowl, yellow stem)...
Open a tin of CD Bayou Morning Flake. Gonna give it a go in a meer.
Smoked some of the Tastemaster MDaws79 sent me to compare against Honey & Chocolate and to be fair smoked it in the same pipe, i.e. the Tim West panel. To be honest H&C has far more chocolate taste and Vitamin N, I found Tastemaster smoked cool, was mild in Vitamin N and there were mild hints of cocoa and nougat, all in all a nice early day smoke and probably kind of lost to my palate this late in the day as I tend to smoke stronger tobacco as the day goes by. Thanks Mark, hope you and Jedi are doing better.
I did get to see that at the chicagoland pipe show
It is AWESOME !!!
I enjoy Firedance Flake. I don't pick up any berry flavor or any fruity flavor they claim but only a yellow mustard flavor. I don't find that a downer whatsoever though. That is one fine flake.
Yea, but was it drilled straight?...
Holds a Lot of Tobacco !
African Queen!! It's People!!!
Really?! I got a lot of berry flavor from this--quite sweet. This is the first bowl I've tried--will pay more attention to the next one. I'm not sure how old this is--got it from our Central Maine get-together Sunday.
Peterson Special Reserve 2012 in a Peterson Canadian. I need to put a camera in the glove box of the car. Driving by the golf course and huge lightning hit in the background behind a foursome. I wonder if the parents of those golfers really aspired to have children that wanted to be lightning rods. 21C(70F)H72%
Many was the winter day we'd all be ice fishing, keeping our Genny Creams cold in the snow, as we sat there all bundled up, on the ice, drinking a cold Genny, with the snow falling around us. A nice pipe really adds to the whole thing. (For some reason, these Texicans around here can't fathom this concept).
Some days you're the bug and others you're the windshield, I'll let you all decide which I was today from the post in latest purchase.
It's Maine, if it doesn't taste like the ocean, it tastes like berries, and God love 'em for it.
No smoke, Cope while I cook dinner.
I got berries in the tin aroma but none in the smoke, which was more like a mild FVF with hints of chocolate. Very strange if enjoyable brew that Fire Dance.
