    Good morning all.
    Drinking some instant coffee to clear the cob webs from my brain, and smoking some CH in a MM Legend as my first pipe. Up next immediately after the CH is McClelland Red Cake in a MM Washington bent.
    Have a great day! Overcast here with a chance of some Sun later in the day.

    Cup of coffee and CAO Midnight Ride in my Lorenzo sitter. This started as a smooth and is my first real full rustification. Good smoking pipe. Have a great Wednesday everyone.

    You'll get the hang of it. Smoke it for flavour and when you start finding all that's in that tobacco, just relax and you'll automatically adjust draw and cadence from then on.

    First bowl of the morning was Essence of Vermont in a MM Legend while out watching the sun come up.

    Heading for walkabout now since we have a Nordic Walking Class later. As always the Tsuge Tankard has come forward for close to it's 100th smoke in a row and is filled with Director's Cut rather than it's normal rations, by the time I get to head out it will have had 20 minutes to dry out a bit so we'll give this a go, finally it's tune time!

    It all goes to show, it doesn't really matter how old you are and how much experience you have. When you're learning new techniques, it takes time.

    Sitting in a chair relaxing, I get a consistent, perfect smoke. But if I'm working on the computer or talking to someone, the attention gets distracted and puffing becomes less regular. I just need to keep practicing that breath smoking technique until it becomes an ingrained habit: automatic and instinctive. I'm almost there. However long it takes is OK. I'm in no hurry.

    And I've now clocked 2+ hours with this LTF in a Bjarne. It's unbelievably sweet and delicious, and smells like heaven. Every once in a while I switch off to the LBF in a Prince for some added spice.

    I must go on record to say I HATE this tobacco and PipeSimmo for recommending it I can't possibly choke down more than a lb per week. ;)

    Having my last try at Dan's Sweet Vanilla Honeydew in a Stanwell Bulldog. I wanted to like it, but I don't so I am switching to Penzance in a DGE, something I know I like.

    Firing up some McClelland Red Cake as my second pipe of the morning. I left the tobacco out to dry overnight and now its the perfect dryness for me. Not that it was sopping wet when I got it, but I do like my tobacco quite dry.
    Another mug of coffee...and the sun is breaking through the clouds for the first time in 3 days.
    Enjoy your Wednesday :puffy:
