Hardcastle and a repeat on the Astley's #44. Good evening fellas.
Ah, we've made fools of ourselves over the pizza, the other half is now put away for the morrow (the pizza not my wife) , Levi has been fed, had his ablutions and his treat and the lump has gone to bed, that metamorphosis of his befuddles me.
Anyhoo had a short smoke of AoTM and took my meds and will slip under the covers shortly to see what old Ben is up to these days, he's nearly 60 in the Biography I'm reading and was quite surprised that he was tall, I always thought he was shorter, well he appears that way on the $100 bill anyway. The Droid RAZR will keep yins all close in the off chance my ears burn, or is that ring, I always have the ringing, ah such is the mystery of the carbon based lifeforms that call the blue planet home............
HV in my Pete "Donegal" 999, Guinness, good.
I did not see this...If I may, Rondel65, thank you for sharing this. And God bless Horace (and I am sure He did when he saw him showing up in Heaven!) who performed the ultimate sacrifice: give his life for his fellow citizens' liberties.
For the most part, people today have no idea what going to war means. Sure, the medias show us a lot of stuff, but it is not like being there, being part of it, fighting. In Horace's case, not many know what WW II meant and what the stakes were: Nazi Germany trying to conquer and rule the world, establishing a new world order where most of us would not even be alive today.
I am SO GLAD the United States of America decided to break its "vows" of non-interventionism and got involved in the conflict! Because if it was not so, we would not live in the world we live in today.
This is far from being a perfect world. And the US is not a perfect people. It has made historical errors and sometimes supported the wrong governments. But.....
When I see, or read people criticizing the US, or saying 'Yankees go home!", I say they should be ashamed! The US is the world's police and peace force; extensive resources, money and soldiers, airmen and sailors are deployed every day to try to maintain some order and peace in troubled countries where innocent people are slaughtered, evicted, expatriated, become homeless and lose everything. And people do not appreciate it nor recognize it.
A shame! So, being a Canadian and a commissioned officer in the Royal Canadian Navy, I can only say:
Thank you, United States of America, for all you have done, and are doing for us. And God bless America and Americans!
Nice day on the space coast.
Now enjoying some SG

Bob's Chocolate Flake in a Savinelli Estella lovat.
Been smoking a lot of Carter Hall in my Bennington Pickaxe trying to build a cake. A little bit of everything else I have, but mostly CH for the last week.
A picture of my tiny pipe station:
Good evening. Reiner LGF in a Northern Briars billiard. Bell's Oberon on the side.
Nice weather here. 76˚F (24˚C), 40%RH, north winds at 8 mph. Not too bad for late May.
Another bowl of BBF in the Spillproof washing it down with a nice pour of scotch.
I had a wonderful dinner, and why shouldn't I? M'lady is a terrific cook. I'm going back to work smoking, thanks to FishnBanjo, AJ's VaPer in a 2002 smooth Rinaldo Silver Line 3 EGER 05 paneled horn. A bottle of Nesbitt's Orange soda for a drink. Braves and Mets are scoreless in the 4th, Phillies and Nats are tied 2-2 in the 5th, and the Dodgers are leading the Cards 2-1 in the 4th. Back to work,now!
Where did the 2013 show up? I've been keeping a look out for it but haven't seen any yet. How is it?
GH Bob's Chocolate Flake in a Peterson 80s. First smoke of this tobacco and it's burning quite nicely. Darjeeling tea. Clouds rolled back in and it's raining again. 11C(52F)H78%
Did I miss something or did you get a new slead? What did you get??
Pizza for breakfast at banjo's house
Right now im outside smoking some Nashville from Hu tobacco in my 312 system pipe.
Nashville, the captial of Tennessee, is the stronghold of American country music. But Nashville is also located in the middle of the USA‘s largest Burley-growing area. Often underrated as a pure carrier of aroma, Burley is seldom found as a main ingredient in natural tobacco blends. “Nashville County“ Ready Rubbed Flake brilliantly disproves such misconceptions. 60 percent strong-flavored and sweet Kentucky Burley grades determine the character of this traditional American blend. Malty Red Virginias form the “Nashville Country‘s“ beautiful finish. Its taste is defined by a smoky flavour with a touch of liquorice. This medium strong blend is perfect for relaxed smoking and a brilliant interpretation of the traditional spirit of the South. …progress is tradition perpetuated.
little work out for the leather covered Savinelli
and nightly ration of 1 beer on the side
95 degrees in the desert right now. Almost too hot to smoke.
Virginia Spice in a pride cob on the back patio.
Cold ice water to drink.

It's by HU, I think you have to order that from their site.
Done with yardwork and have playtime scheduled for Sunday. Enjoying some McClelland's 221B series Blag Shag in a Peterson.
