    I've found myself smoking Middleton's Cherry more and more. I put some of that through my new Kaywoodie Red Root yesterday.

    You should be in Calgary this morning. First serious round of Stampede breakfasts is on and an unspiked coffee is as rare as a politician without something to say. Baileys is the standard replacement for cream or milk in coffee. All the alcohol vapours in the air is probably why it has never ever rained during the Stampede Parade.

    4noggins Evening Cordial in a MM Legend. Chocolate with a touch of cherry, why not, it's time for dessert in some time zone or another.

    Pizza for lunch and now it's on to Blue Danube in the very first pipe I ever bought ($2.95) in 1974; a smooth three quarter bend Dr. Grabow Omega. The Jack Benny XM radio marathon starts over again at 2:00 EST, and I'll listen to what I missed.

    Hot and humid here in Central Maine. Just got home, Kickin' Chicken in the little meer apple, whiskey sour in the glass, ACs cranked, streaming the Avengers (animated series) on Netflix. Wonder what the poor folks are doing this afternoon? :cool:

    Thanks to MDaws79 I had a nice bowl of Honey & Chocolate in the Rockin' Black Rock Cob, nice chocolate notes for the first 1/3 bowl then it opened up some with some vitamin N then settled down for a nice finish, I like the Black Rock Cob on a hot day it helps you monitor if you smoke too fast. Nice stuff to go along with it as well, am figuring out what HATE to send in return, thanks Mark!

    I'd also like FlatbushPaul to know his generosity in what his HATE package contained is exciting and wonderful, two class acts on the PSF.

    Getting an early start on things and smoking Edward G. Robinson's Pipe Blend in a 1982 black sandblasted paneled slight bend Savinelli flat bottom sitter. A can of 7-Up is my drink.

    Man, the way you describe it makes me wish I had tried one more bowl before sending it off. :doh: Glad you like it!

    Thanks to FishnBanjo, I'm smoking Year 1998 Orlik Golden Slices in an undated medium bend big bowl rusticated Sienna colored Estella with a pearl grey stem. I figured it'd rain today, and I guess Stormy's buddy made sure I had guessed right. Humpf!!!

    Everyone's palate is different Mark, I can taste what I'm cooking by smell, i.e. I season with my nose as it sends information to my palate, it's always worked for me. The accompanying beverage also adds, or detracts, I chose Jamaican Blue Mountain and it has faint chocolate notes but the tobacco enhanced the flavor of both the coffee and the tobacco.

    It's freaking hot here as well and I didn't know what to expect but used the rock cob since it would help me control my first smoke by keeping the bowl cool, to me it made a fine hot day smoke, it didn't have a lot of power until you got some Vitamin N in the center which did not hang on for long, just enough then it was just a good tobacco. Thanks again.

    I concur with fishnbanjo, it is freakin' hot here in Maine today. Had some cheese and crackers to cut the whiskey and thought it might be time for a little nic kick so have fired up a bowl of HBB in the Pete 305.

    Almost finished with this bowl of AJ's VaPer (thanks, FishnBanjo) in a straight 1978 black sandblasted Sir Brent billiard with lucite stem and silver band repair on the shank. I'm walking up and down the warehouse aisles looking for what to smoke next. The Saint Bernard was kind enough to fetch me a bottle of Cheerwine, but was disappointed to learn it was only a cherry soda. It pays to live and learn, folks!! :cool:

    Cut some Peter Stokkebye curly block aka the Salami with my antique tobacco cutter and it is definitely not for plugs since it puts a lot of pressure on them and makes them oval shaped. It will cut them albeit a bit more thicker than I wanted so I air dried it and lamp dried it the past two days and figured I'd tear some a bit finer and gravity fed the Pietenpauw Craggy Billiard Fisherman pipe with the African bamboo shank, mighty tasty smoke.
