    Went to the 7-11 last night. Standing in line, a young guy comes up to me--I'm holding my Doc Grabow--and leans over. Stares intently at the Grand Duke. Then starts guffawing. "I thought you was smoking GREEN, man! I thought, This guy's got B*LLS!"

    We both had a good laugh.

    Bought a lighter. Didn't work when I got it home.

    So it goes.

    Is is lightly aromatic you ask? :xd::haha::laff:


    Let's just say you can double bag it and mail it in an envelope and STILL smell it outside the package. Strong stuff. But very pleasant.

    Las night MCB, in a Dr.G Lark, the little pipe is almost broke in now, and smokes nice. Later a big bowl of "Golden Moon" in my MM CG, always sweet. The boss is out of town today, so I brought the Dr. G and the pouch of MCB to work, I see the loading dock in my future, it's a nice day for a pipe outside too! :)
    Have a great Memorial Day guys!

    Good morning all. I'm smoking McClelland 5110 and having some coffee. Interestingly, 5110 is the first tobacco my wife claims to love the smell of. Thanks to jdto for the recommendation on this one, you're right it is similar to some of the FM blends but maybe a bit sweeter.

    I do find it similar but 5110 is sweeter I think, I've read it's the same tobacco but I'm quite certain it's a unique blend. 88% certain.

    Had to sleep late this morning, again. I am really dead as the work week ends. Did manage to smoke a pipe of Irish Oak and one of Old Dublin before leaving for work.

    Today starts my 4 day weekend. Hooray! Next Tuesday we start on a monster 150 square cedar shake roof. All estimates have it that we will be on it for at least 2 months. I am going to be really sick of that place, but at least its gonna keep me busy.

    Today is cold, I thought I could put my jackets away, but not yet.

    Going to pack up a couple of cobs and some LNF and go fishing. Have a great day everyone.

    Yeah, I have not seen the place yet, but I was told that a normal sized house would fit in one of the bathrooms. The people who own it are very odd too, This is the first job I have ever been on where the homeowner asked that the roofers be clean shaven and dressed nicely.....have they ever seen a roofer?

    Oh boy. Snap chalk lines every other course. Sounds like this couple may be one of "those" owners.

    9 out of 10 times when a job starts out with a crazy homeowner, they usually leave us alone after a week, whenever they see that we have our methods for a reason. But that 10th time, you get a "Mary".
    Mary was a crazy old lady that had many eccentricies, but her main one was that she had to water her plants precisely at 3:30 every day. No matter if we were working near them, or had asked her not to because we didn't want to make a mud hole, or didn't want our ladder to sink a foot into the ground. She didn't care, she would soak that ground every day until it was impossible to not destroy it by walking around. If you were to close, you got sprayed with the hose.

    The funniest part was at the end of the job she came up to us and asked if she was one the best homeowners to work for......and she really thought we were going to say yes. She got a lot of blank stares back.

    The aforementioned Sam's Flake
    is now burning in a genoa. Later,
    I have to hunt down a place that
    sells butane canisters as my
    Zippo is dry. Problem is, cigar
    places are few and far between
    in this town, and pipe shoppes
    are nonexistent. :mad:

    MCB in the Dr. G , too nice outside to be in working today, I'll be glad when this shift is done. I'm going water skiing tomorrow, I have not been on a ski in 8-10 years! I gotta show my kids the old man has still got it, hopefully, having lost 30 lbs. I'll survive it! :)
