Condor Longcut in a mystery meerschaum bent billiard.
Old Ted sent a few flakes along with the Davehill I got from him, thanks again OT! The last flake I smoked was in my Dr. Grabow "Westbrook" billiard. Ghosted the poor thing with a vengeance, will see how this meer handles it.
Just finished a commission and having some Squadron Leader in a BST. Finished all the coffee earlier, thinking of making another pot. Might as well, it's Sunday and I ain't gotta be anywhere.
Bits of 1792, Irish Flake, and FireDance Flake that were left on the plate yesterday, in a Peterson Canadian. Nice cool morning that's making the steam from the coffee look even more appetizing.
5 attempts at a pipe today and thus far 3 full failures including the Tsuge Tankard of all pipes. The tobacco is perfect for burning but the humidity changes it so fast it refuses to burn right! Was able to eek out a smoke of Naked Anni in the MM Mizzou with the plum colored Forever Stem and just had half a bowl of the driest tobacco I have, the Fire Fly Blend and it was very good, looks to be a cob and dry tobacco day today. sigh..... Jamaican Blue Mountain for now, at least Levi's walkabout went fine, leg still refuses to be right.
Good morning everyone! Surprise! I'm in Florida! I started the day how I ended yesterday. PS LNF in my DGE Briar Nosewarmer. I'm drinking coffee black. Most importantly, I'm not doing anything. Cheers!
Found another winning combo:
Peter Heinrich's Dark Strong Flake in mt Malaga billiard.
Mac baren VA #1 in an Ashton old church billiard. 1st go at this one. It is a winner! Much coffee on the side.
Just had a bowl of Special Curly. It wasn't burning right for some reason, so I scrapped it and now I am indoors with coffee, Stryder, E-cig
Watching the much need rain comming ashore from gulf this morning. Gusty winds and dancing trees. Smoking Frog Morton Cellar in a bent Mario Grandi. Suppose to rain much of the day which brings cooler temps and good smoking weather. Hope you pipers out there that are getting too much rain start to dry out. Good day to all!
Started it off with some PA in my Viking, and some Earl Grey I was gifted last night from a visiting friend...and the crosswords...
I didn't know what I wanted to smoke, so, I went with my normal go-to. Uhle's #00 in a Comoy's Golden Saddlebit Billiard with black coffee from Nicaragua.
Happy Sunday Smoking,
PH Dark Strong Flake is fabulous! Very under rated blend.
PA Choice blend in a Grabow Cardinal.
MacBaren VA#1 in a Ben Wade blasted tomato. I'd put both away for some time because of space and was moving some things around this morning and thought, why not?
Had some baguette with extra virgin olive oil, Himalayan Sea Salt and crushed peppercorns, fresh cherry tomatoes from the Farmer's Market with quartered baby cucumbers, black olives, thinly sliced purple onion, basil sliced chiffonade style with a glorious black tea from Russia, it's the equivalent of liquid Latakia! So now I'm loading up the Pioneer Black Meerschaum from the Isle of Mann poker with some Nightcap and a strong mug of Khave.
About to fire up some Mac B. dark twist in a Savinelli.
Half & Half in Legend MM while mowing the yard.
Just finished some MacBaren Va No.1 in my Savinelli 320 Trevi
Just finished a bowl of CAO Moontrance in my Windjammer.
