Mornin. Larry's Blend in a Savorys Argyll.
Morning all from the (York)shire.
Cold start, but sun shining now.
Earlier Fordy Blend #01 (10% Lat, 10% Black Cav, 80% Carp Jar).
Now, St Bruno Flake in a brand spanking new Falcon bowl - Plymouth Rustic Meer lined.
Good on YOU!
There's a certain mystique to smoking out a pipe. I've long wanted to point to a pipe and say: "Old Bessie Lou here was one of the best, but she gave up the ghost 6 years ago." But pipes are pretty tough creatures. I'm convinced that all of mine are going to outlast me.
I assume a pipe will eventually carbonize all the way through and pretty much disintegrate. Has that ever happened to anyone here? An MM would seem to be the most likely candidate for such a fate.
I've only had one pipe go out on me. One was a 1975 $1.99 cheapie straight bulldog that burned rather hot. One day, I was walking up the street, wind blowing rather strongly when the shank exploded and the bowl fell to the cement and burst into pieces. That was rather shocking! As for cobs, I take care of them the same as I do my briars and meers. As my old painting teacher used to say about brushes, "Take care of your brushes and they will take care of you." The same logic applies to pipes.
Hello,if you are a Latakia fan you will love it.Has a unique "woodland" aroma that even the women love to smell.Don't care about spices etc won't bother you, it's a very nice tobacco.
Did you wear your hat
No, no hat this early in the morning. My head needs all the air it can get!! It also needs another smoke, so I'm enjoying MacBaren London Blend in a 1980s made in London no name smooth straight apple.
I'm dipping into the Germain's Brown Flake again, this time in a Cellini Slightly Bent Billiard for the obligatory ride into work on this nasty , wet, morning. Black coffee on the side, of course.
Started the morning with the usual routine, a stroll around the Plantation
The Bear showed them an Altinok meer.
They'd no idea what it was (to them)
It was then a lightly rolled Orlik Bulls Eye in a bed of
in the Altinok for March Meer. Madness Day 19

Good morning PSF. Started today with the Arlington I smoked yeterday morning, filled with Mc. C Stave-Aged Virginia 35 and coffee on the side. You may remember this Arlington as I have referred to it many times as my "burns everything well pipe". Arlington made pipes for different brands and rarely made them under their own name. This is a Custom Delux straight billiard with a silver band. I think I bought it in the mid 90's at an antique shop in Thomasville, Georgia. I was buying an old pipe rack with humidor and this pipe came with the rack for about $20.00. After seeing this on Evilbay
(http://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-Arlington-Sterling-Silver-banded-Estate-pipe-/320569981421?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4aa375b9ed), maybe I should take better care of it LoL.
Good morning. Beck's Ol' Limey Bastard in a Neerup. I love the taste of Latakia in the morning.
Half a mm legend of EMP as I am going to smoke it on the way to work.
Just finished a bowl of Reverie in my vintage Irving Cobb while shoveling the latest offering of snow. Now for my second cuppa black coffee.
Normal start to the morning. Finished last night's pipe of CH, followed by pipe of Presbyterian. Irish Breakfast tea, of course. Have a tin of Russian Morning tea on order, should be here tomorrow. that will definitely get my day started!
Good afternoon PSF. Waiting for the mailman, who will hopefully today deliver my first Tinsky. Can't wait any longer...In the meantime:
Motzek Curly Mixture in a cob.
Good morning all.
Red Rap in an old Kaywoodie dub. Tetley in an old mug.
Larsen Old Fashioned in a Georg Jensen billiard.
Prairie Wind in a Peterson 80s. illy coffee from the press. -15C(5F)H74%
Leftover 1/2 bowl of Bombay Extra,on to the CH in a MM Spool
GLP Laurel Heights in a Benton Big Ben a little Josephus, warming the handle of my snowshovel getting ready to move around the dirty white stuff.
