    Good morning everyone! I'm DGTing a bowl of PS LNF in the DGE roar Nosewarmer from yesterday afternoon. Drinking coffee black. The house is beginning to stir. Have a nice day.

    Good Morning,
    I'm in the mood for a nice Virginia, so it's Wessex Brigade Campaign, in a Dunhill Group 6 Ring Grain Billiard with black coffee.

    Happy Smoking,
    Paul

    Morning started off normally. Brewed up Russian tea, filled large Peterson system pipe with Irish Oak, then read and puffed away. But then what for my second smoke? Smoked a lot of CG last night during the Phillies win, so I grabbed the Bull Run and stuffed it in a mm cob. The mild flavor worked well this morning.

    I have stubbornly resisted buying DDLNR, figuring it's probably pretty much the same as Escudo. And I already have a huge stash of Escudo. But posts like yours are giving me an itchy trigger finger.

    Oh well, it won't hurt to get just one little old tin. And my wife will immediately order me to jar the contents so she can claim the posh tin for her art supplies. She's an expert on the virtues of jarring, and airs her expertise frequently.

    I don't know if the Mac Baren Navy Flake did supreme justice to the Maigurs Knets Calabash or the the Calabash to the tobacco, either way it was truly sublime, finishing the accompanying PRM of Jamaican Blue Mountain and giving 5 of my cobs the scotch, scrub and ream treatment.

    Alternating between GLP Laurel Heights and Stokkebye Natural Dutch Cavendish, both in their respective Cavicchi Authors ...

    And that's their new baby brother, a Savinelli Baronet Bruyere 315 EX, the crowning jewel of my recent order from P&C. Notice how carefully he's studying his big brothers, learning what to do when he grows up into an adult pipe.

    This 315 is a monster, having reincarnated from a previous life as a soup ladle. My unsteady hand measures its chamber diameter at 0.93". The proportions on this beast are stunning. I think they show up pretty well here

    [​IMG]

    I had to overshoot my pipe spending goal of $50 by nine dollars. But what the hell. Baby Bruno is worth every penny of it.

    As a responsible Dad I'll get him started off on the right foot with alternating bowls of Mixture and Va. No. 1, until he has a nice, even, glistening cake. Then he's on his own.

    I hope you ran into your neighbor

    while she was out on her balcony getting a bit of fresh air.

    Marshalling your best tenor voice, you could alway try a little operetta magic on her:

    Du hast mich bezaubert
    Du hast mich betört
    Wie Hashhish und purpurner Wein

    Does the modern German woman go in for such things, or would she tend to respond frostily?

    Good morning all! Starting the day with some PA in the Rusty Rhodes with Maxwell House. Thinking of getting some shop time in before having to go to work. After one more cup, lol.

    Going to be hot and humid here today, calling for 100 and it is currently 71% humidity, I may try to spend some time in the shop this morning.

    I'm just putting the finishing touches on a little " Mello Root" Italian billiard that I dug out of the junk box an fit with about a 6 inch stem. Loaded it with Va# 1 and trying it out. I think it will make a great flake pipe.

    So far so good, just enough coffee to keep the spiders away. ;)

    No, I haven't :( - I think she moved, haven't seen her in weeks... [​IMG]

    The song you've mentioned is really beautiful, but most of the times I stick to "Dein ist mein ganzes Herz" even though both of this songs are a little bit too high for me, as I am a baritone.
    Do you know the version of the german Caruso "Fritz Wunderlich"? My top favorite tenor.



    No pipe for me - too damn hot, I'll have to wait for the sunset.

    EDIT: changed my mind, I'm going to join you with the Laurel Heights - in a black rock cob
    (Thanks again rekamepip for this rockin' combustion engine! :nwor: )

    I would like to second that request in the strongest manner possible.:laff:

    I seem to have flipped back to day shift. This always gets me confused regarding day and date, so the wifely one bought me a watch that tells me what day of the week it is. I'm always a day ahead or a day behind.
    Started the day on the roof. Quiet and cool with SWR in the Pete and the usual mug of rocket fuel java. For me that is the best part of the day. I start out completely numb and don't come back down stairs until the brain is firing at least six cylinders and I know what I must do regarding the writing. Sometimes I spend the first half hour separating my dreams from what I'm writing. I don't dare start work before separating the two. Surrealism is a hard sell these days.
