    The Quitter


    When you're lost in the Wild,and you're scared as a child,
    And Death looks you bang in the eye,
    And you're sore as a boil, it's according to Hoyle
    To cock your revolver and . . . die.
    But the Code of a Man says: "Fight all you can,"
    And self-dissolution is barred.
    In hunger and woe, oh, it's easy to blow . . .
    It's the hell-served-for-breakfast that's hard.


    "You're sick of the game!" Well, now, that's a shame.
    You're young and you're brave and you're bright.
    "You've had a raw deal!" I know -- but don't squeal,
    Buck up, do your damnedest, and fight.
    It's the plugging away that will win you the day,
    So don't be a piker, old pard!
    Just draw on your grit; it's so easy to quit:
    It's the keeping-your-chin-up that's hard.


    It's easy to cry that you're beaten -- and die;
    It's easy to crawfish and crawl;
    But to fight and to fight when hope's out of sight --
    Why, that's the best game of them all!
    And though you come out of each grueling bout,
    All broken and beaten and scarred,
    Just have one more try -- it's dead easy to die,
    It's the keeping-on-living that's hard.

    Just lit a bowl G.L. Pease Telegraph Hill in the Peterson billiard Christmas pipe. I always feel odd smoking this when it is not Christmas. Such a shame as it is a nice smoker.

    We got hit with 6 inches of snow by the time I woke up this morning. It's still been snowing the entire time the past few hours. :( Finished a bowl of FVF from last night on the way out to the office this morning. Came back home for a while until the roads are a bit better. Now having a bowl of Brit's Balkan in an MM hardwood.

    Half way through what indeed is my first smoke of the day: Steven Books First Smoke of the Day in a medium bend straight grain 2000 Winslow C silver spigot. A very appropriate name for this tobacco. Thank you FlatbushPaul. I got a late start because the missus took care of feeding the kittens this morning. I slept right through the entire thing, but I'm sure Suzy and Molly didn't mind. I'm drinking Simply Lemonade and thinking about lunch and my next smoke.

    Walkabout today was great save for the wind which had me concerned the Tsuge would burn hot but it did not and St. Bruno seems to be a wonderful tobak for the pipe it smoked brilliantly.

    Black Lung in my Sav Autograph blobby pipe. Plan to alternate this with Early Morning Pipe all day today and see how similar I think the two really are. I may be just tobacco-lucinating.

    How far south of Fort wayne are you? We've gotten almost 8 inches so far! Looks like we got more than you south regions were slated to get.
