    Wicker! That is fantastic! I know that poem well, even had to memorize it back in my undergrad days, and didn't think there was any way to improve upon it. It turns out a collaboration between Wicker Man and Teddy has done it. WB Yeats must be smiling down upon ye.

    Here's one for you from another William I consider just as good:

    If I when Mrs. Wicker is sleeping
    and the tobacco plants and Teddy
    are sleeping
    and the sun is a flame-white disc
    in silken mists
    above shining trees,--
    if I in the Night Train Pub
    dance naked, grotesquely
    before my mirror
    waving my shirt round my head
    and singing softly to myself:
    "I am lonely, lonely.
    I was born to be lonely,
    I am best so!"
    If I admire my arms, my mustache,
    my clenched pipe, flanks, buttocks
    against the yellow drawn shades,--

    Who shall say I am not
    the happy genius of my household?

    --William Carlos Williams --Danse Russe

    By the way, smoking some Carter Hall in a pipe I got for less than $20 shipped from Germany (Granito Vera Radica) and taking a quick break from my work. This pipe is a beauty though. I think I got a great deal.

    Made the monthly pilgrimage to Belfast's (and one of Ireland's) only remaining true B&M. Picked up some more of their house blends namely Scotch Whisky, Coffee Caramel, Irish Mist and a peachy smelling aromatic named Classic Blend. And more of that delicious Kentucky Nougat.

    My wife called from a few blocks over and asked me to join her and Thomas (the 2 month old) on a walk, so I loaded the Brigham billiard with Prince Albert Cherry Vanilla (thanks ruffinogold) and went to meet her. Shocked how fast it burned after the bowl of Nightcap. Very tasty tobacco, though. I like to smoke cheery blends when I'm out walking.

    I was recently gifted a tin of FM, which is my first go at that style of tobacco. I liked it enough that I found some FMOTT locally and trying it as well. So far I like them enough to try some other blends of the style.

    I just discovered that the image of WickerMan dancing naked in front of a mirror is not something I can really handle first thing in the morning.

    Started the day with Classic Burley Kake in the Rekamepip Naked Maple Tankard. Finishing the last of the coffee and about to load up Rekamepip's Naked VaBur Blend in the Falcon. Time to take off my clothes and whirl them around my head go to work.

    Inspired by other recent threads here I deoxidized the stem on my Peterson Aran zulu and then filled it with University Flake. A near perfect smoke. Earl Grey. On my balcony.

    G&H DFU in a billiard Longchamp. Kind of reminded me of a cigar, I liked it.

    Woke up at the crack of 0730 and meandered my way through a bowl of Firefly Blend in the Irwin S. Cobb Cob, the rest of the few pipes I had were cobs save walkabout, which I should call crawl about, the Tsuge Tankard consumed a nice bowl of God only knows what! I did have a grand bowl of Federal Tobacconist Dark Navy Flake in the Peterson Pot with silver cap and appointments. Loads and loads of PRM's which some of were dregs of different jars so I spent awhile grinding 5 different beans for the week and reading a mere 253 messages to catch up. :confused: :eek: :D Anyway good day PSFer's and I won't get that far behind again for awhile......

    C&D Star of the East in the Sasieni panelled billiard.

    Bought this recently from 4Noggins to compare it to other similar blends like Oriental Silk and Balkan Mixture that I've really been loving and I think this might be a winner. If you're a fan of Virginia/Latakia/Turkish style blends (Balkans to some) I highly recommend this. Less spicy than Oriental silk and a bit more sweet than Balkan Mixture. This might be a new favourite of mine in this particular style.

    Currently working on illustrations for a new collection of fantasy short stories.
