    Starting a loooong hard week with Walnut in the MM GD Spool, with black coffee.
    Gonna have to find time to put a tobacco order together, as I'm scraping the bottom of the bucket in both Walnut and Carter Hall.

    On my way out of work today, I noticed a box with my name on it. It was my last 4noggins order. I am now smoking a bowl of Carter Hall in a Dr. Grabow Lark, both from that box. Happy Monday to me.

    Spent Sunday afternoon cleaning up and organizing my tobacco supply and finally started a spread sheet listing all the tobacco in my cupboard. Needless to say, I found several jars with two or three pipes full of tobacco left in them. So I decided to start smoking them to clear space for more of the blends I actually smoke very often. One of the blends I discovered was Proper English Bastard, but before you start looking this up on TR or Google, it was blended by our very own JohnnyDingo. I remembered liking this blend a lot when he gave it to me a year or so ago and I was hording it knowing that I would never be able to replace it. This morning I smoked Johnny's Perfect English Bastard while on my commute with hot black Community Coffee on the side. The year or so in the jar has really blended these tobaccos well. The Latakia is a perfect companion to the Virginia leaf and is that a little Perique in there as well? It is slighly spicy (peppery?), but VAs usually give me a little tounge tingle and I could be confusing that with the perique. Anyway, it is a perfect smoke for this cool (47*F), windy morning in North Florida. Thanks again Johnny. I still have a couple of bowls full left.

    Have you had the original? I'm wondering if it compares, I had some 965 Match by Sutliff recently and I was really impressed.

    Woke up early for no good reason, so I invented one: Edgeworth Ready Rubbed Match in a 2003 black sandblasted medium bend Karl Erik Ekstravagant blowfish. Suzy and Molly have hardly noticed me. M'lady had already fed them, and they've been rolling 'round the floor fightin' and playin' and fightin' and playin' again. They'll run out of steam before long, but it least they give me something fun to watch in the meantime.

    Christmas is coming. I like that pipe. It's mighty nice.

    I have also been wondering what has become of OC. I enjoy his posts very much. Hopefully he'll show back up. I know I sometimes will stop visiting a forum for several months and then come back to it later on. I did that here one time, actually.

    Good morning folks. Having Stonehaven in a Peterson for breakfast. Nice and sugary. Locally roasted Kenyan coffee on the side. There is already some guy on his riding mower right now. I mean, I know you're supposed to do it in the morning, but on a Monday? Better him than me.

    Got my down coat on with the yellow-stemmed Rossi hanging out of my mouth full of Escudo. It's pretty chilly out here....will I really be able to do this all winter? Yikes, I hope so.

    I'm busy planning this afternoon's lesson. The director of the writing program comes by and observes all the teachers once a semester and today is my turn. Can't say I'm particularly looking forward to it, but this will be my fifth observation and the previous four went well. Not as much nerves involved this time as those first couple.

    Well, I haven't had the original, but I had the stuff that was being produced before Dunhill's absence from the market. I think that was Murray's? But I was merely dabbling with the pipe back then and couldn't smoke and appreciate it - I always scorched the heck out of my mouth and was approaching things all wrong in a number of ways (I had been led to believe the only kinds of pipe tobacco were "English blends" and aromatics, and didn't like either one very well right off the bat, with few exceptions - Durbar being one such exception, which even I could tell was high quality). I ended up taking a long break from trying to smoke a pipe, sticking with cigars. Eventually, I gave it another shot and loved it...but Durbar was already gone, and the rest of the Dunhills soon followed, before I got a chance to go back and try them again
