    SG 1792 Flake in a MM Legend. Doesn't taste half as weird as it smells in the jar. One of those beautiful golden winter sunrises that demands that one stop and watch it progress for a while. -5C(23F)H89%

    Starting off the day with an annoying door to door sales person who asked, "Are you really smoking that pipe?" I replied, "Yeah, I'm creating a cloud cover to hide my house from annoying sales people." "Oh... okay. Does that mean you don't want to buy our security system?" *Sigh!*

    Dorchester in a 2002 smooth natural straight silver banded Ardor Venere Extra Fatta A Mano Maigret, signed by Dorelio Rovera. That'll get me through for now!

    Irish Oak in a weber apple. Loads of coffee on the side. Slept far longer than usual, but that's fine by me.

    When I'm at home, with dozens of choices, I start thinking I could be satisfied with just a couple of blends. When I'm travelling, with just 2 blends, I start craving the variety of my cellar. Surely, this speaks to some idiosyncrasy in human nature or a flaw in my own nature. Just a thought that I'm already tired of thinking about. Who cares, really?

    Now, why didn't I pack some Irish Flake, too?

    Morning PSF. With Black Friday weekend underway it seems safe to officially break out the Peterson's Holiday Season 2012 for an inaugural bowl. Its a good one - especially if you like apples. Smoking it in the Sas apple - which now seems even more appropriate than ever.

    I've considered doing this with a cob. Maybe not blue, but maybe a high gloss black or deep red.

    Just finished up some Half and Half in a Kaywoodie. Probably won't smoke another pipe for 15-20 minutes because that would be excessive.

    Uhles and ABF in an OT Cob while I stain a briar.

    Do Not Attempt This At Home (stain is alcohol based, I are a professional)

    No, if he was a mythbuster he would be rigging charges to see how much dynamite it takes to turn briar into dust...

    True, if somethings worth doing, it's worth over doing.

    Continuing the trend of smoking pipes I've recently neglected, I'm smoking the current Three Nuns tinned version in a mid-late 1930s straight black grain relief Dunhill OX Shell with a silver band repair at the shank. Great smoker that's been through God knows how many wars before I came into ownership. The nomenclature's almost gone now, and partly covered by the band, but it's still giving really terrific service. It could probably use a outer bowl cleaning and a less beaten-looking silver band, but then it'd lose some of its character and charm. I'd hate that.
