    Well I'm beat, last pipe of the day is Winter Blend by the Master of Rockin' the Cob, Dust in the Wind, in the MM Mizzou. See you all in the daytime, whatever time that is and somebody call The Schnoz and tell him Mrs Calabash has gone missing. Happy puffing PSF pipers............. :old:

    He must really be under cover, he's smoking a pipe rather than a seegar! :wch::laff:

    A juicy slice of Erinmore Flake in a small Canadian ... utterly delicious!

    Almost finished smoking Rekamepip's Winter Blend in a straight 1978 black sandblasted Sir Brent billiard with lucite stem and silver band repair on the shank. Been working, but thinking about dinner and another smoke, too.

    I started a tin of Erinmore Flake and was convinced it was terrible but by less than a third of the way through I thought it was fantastic and I'm ordering more. I think a part of it was that it was my first flake, took me a bit to work out how best to pack it.

    That does sound good. It's been a while since i've tapped a tin of that. Dang, enough opened goodies right now to keep us all puffing for days, too much to justify popping another. Enjoy!

    Time for a pre-dinner bowl of condor in a rock cob while making a last minute run to the lumber store...

    I love flakes. Erinmore is certainly no exception. I'll usually fold them up longwise and holding one hand at each end just sort of twist and smash the rod of folded flake in on itself and rub it out that way. If they're moist, i'll rub it out and leave it in a thin layer on the table for an hour or two before loading it up, if time allows. I find most flakes smoke pretty well that way. Just my $.02 on the flake thing.

    Warm evening here in my part of Texas and it seems the mosquitos are making a comeback. Sitting here enjoying some Fr Dempsey in a Meadows Devil Anse listening to the crickets. Suppose to be wet and cold here this weekend and I don't mind a bit. Contemplating my next smoke.... I've been wanting to open up something new to try but I have too many blends in jars as it is. Thinking about you Eric. It wasn't too long ago we lost our dog Major to cancer. Fine dog he was. Y'all take care!

    Great ideas, Hoss! Thanks. I either fold them or rub them out, but I do find myself rubbing them out a lot. I think I find that method easiest.

    From what you've posted, you sound ready. You're right some stress in unavoidable - human nature. Heck I stressed today about having to demonstrate CPR in front of the instructor teaching the class despite the fact that he had said repeatedly "don't worry about it, everyone will be fine"

    Man, I love Erinmore Flake. I have quite a few tins in my cellar maturing as I type. Continuing to pay homage to Basil Meadows pipe making skills with some Exhausted Rooster in a Bullitt Proof Cob. Sweet iced tea to drink. Glad tomorrow is Friday!

    It's been a damp chilly day in Southern California, calls for hot tea, and a bowl of McC 5110 full English blend in a GBD virgin straight grain billiard.

    Hmm ... let's see ... could it be the massive amount of alcohol in your bloodstream blunting the nicotine wallop from the EM, enabling you to fully taste that delightful mixture before passing out? :whis:

    Massimo & GiorgiĆ² really outdid themselves with that bent brandy ... what an absolute beauty! Hopefully you have a Rottweiler close by, guarding that thing.

    I now have a St. Bernard close by, simmering away in a Wilke Lovat ... courtesy of a generous pub crawler from Wiesbaden :toast:.

    While I'm waiting for dinner to cook, I'm starting on this bowl of 1991 St. James Woods (thanks to Artistik) in a 1970s slight bend smooth Danish Sovereign XXX 309 with a flat front sitter. I'll finish it after dinner. More ice tea to drink.

    Oh yea! Rub them out. Still haven't mastered the fold and stuff myself:confused: Oh, I fold and stuff with the best, but getting it to burn properly afterwards is a little dicey.

    Just put a half bowl of CH through a new Rossi Rubino with an A&W root beer to sip. Something about the root beer and CH just does it for me. Maybe the vanilla, but it's good. The Rossi is a keeper, love the way it sits in my hand and it's a good smoker.

    I also find when I fold them they take too long to smoke! Anyway, it tastes just as good rubbed out, right?
