    Which reminds me of a recent conversation with some fellow bikers from PA I met in a pub up in Bethel recently. Just could NOT get them to pronounce Maine destinations properly. There is no "Banger" in Maine. Simply change any "r" at the end of a word to "ah" and ya' got it. And could not get them to say Penobscot Rivah correctly, even after a few pints of Black Fly Stout. Darned outta stateahs!

    Suzy and Molly and m'lady are all settled after dinner, and I believe they're on to a good idea. So, before I go back to work, I'm going to watch of a couple of innings of the Braves-Mets game, and thanks to PipeSimmo, smoke Motzek Strang in a 1999 medium bend black sandblast Savinelli Tris 677KS apple with a cumberland stem.

    Truth in advertising memo: I have no choice as to what to do because Suzy's laying on my lap and has no interest in moving.

    That's the ticket. Just gave it a go, and it worked perfectly. The chamber surface is now smooth but still slightly cakey.

    I had to back off a bit with this poor Legend. For a while I couldn't see a single downside to this pipe, so I hammered it pretty hard with repeated smokes. Eventually the taste did go off slightly and the pipe didn't smell as fresh as it could have.

    But a quick rub with the paper towel followed by a Q-tip dipped in iso and lightly rubbed on the tobacco chamber did the trick. Plus an iso-dipped pipe cleaner through the shank and stem. 15 minutes later it was completely fresh.

    So it's MB Plumcake in an MM Bent Legend ...

    Also, the heel cake took care of itself beautifully. I don't see why people fanny about with cutting out the stem and using pipe mud. Completely unnecessary. The bottom stem chars away on its own and helps contribute to a magnificent heel cake.

    I thought blackberries myself but I could be wildly misinformed.

    I'm havin' Steven Books First Pipe in a BST Slightly Bent Dublin with seltzer with a slice of lemon and a few icebergs to chill it to the proper temperature. And yes, it is my drink of choice. The smoke is my smoke of choice.

    Well, you're probably right. Actually, I should take a look out around our propane tank--quite a bramble of blackberries out there--pretty tasty right off the bush.

    On another topic, for the last pipe of the day, decided it was time for a light Lat fix, so have fired up some Pirate Kake in the bent bulldog. First time the Missus has ever noticed it--I guess she is not a Lat lover after all!

    Smoking away on another cob of #500 cigar blend. After smoking in a cob a few times it's more and more tasting like a very mild cigar. Lemonade to drink.

    I'll have to haul out my cobs and give that a go. I've only been getting whiffs of the Havana in briar.
