    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. :eek: 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.

    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.

    Good Morning,

    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.



    Happy Smoking,

    Paul

    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.:msty:

    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.
