    Aye just had a unique thing happen. Whilst enjoying me bowl of CH, me pipe had a flare up and sparks fly up while on the intake puff. The bowl got HOT and sounds like it has steam coming up. Weird huh...:beyes:

    Mac Baren Navy Flake in a Dunhill Cumberland bent bulldog (4108). Getting in the Thanksgiving mood early I guess. We're having seared pork loin for supper, but I'm fixing dressing/stuffing and sweet potatoes as sides to go with it.

    Sounds like you mixed up your tobacco pouch and your powder keg, Pyrate.

    After running two bowls of Carter Hall through the new Savinelli I thought it was time to give it a rest, though I'm still going strong so I've got MM965 in my Ben Wade pot.

    I really like that Savinelli, but after smoking those bowls I looked inside and it seems the cake is really thick up top and almost nothing in the bottom of the bowl. I hadn't noticed that before. I might need to use salt/everclear to soften it up and try to smooth it out or just pick it out with my fingers. I don't have a reamer, so I think that might be the next best thing. My only hesitation with the everclear is that I can't seem to be able to pour it into a bowl without spilling it all over the outside. On the $10 estates I've picked up at the antique store I wasn't real worried about the finish, but with this one I don't want to screw it up. I need to get an eyedropper. The only one in the house is used for Children's Tylenol and something tells me I shouldn't be putting any Everclear in that.

    Also having 965 in a pot. The Kapet 606. So far it's still smoking great, and better than when I got it.

    Earlier, I had some Golden Extra in (insert obligatory JimInks-style description) "the first pipe I ever bought ($20.99). A 2009 Dr. Grabow straight rusticated Duke"

    I'm almost finished with the jar of Golden Extra. Under normal circumstances, I would be curled up in the fetal position in the corner, crying myself to sleep because I was out of Golden Extra. Thankfully, I have another jar-full on hand ;)

    Night-cap this evening is Altadis Vanilla Maple in the Dr. G. Riviera zulu.

    Taking a short work break. I just finished smoking MacBaren Roll Cake in a 1979 black sandblasted medium bend Savinelli Non Pareil 9606 Billiard with a horn ferrule. Going for my next smoke and drink.

    Last pipe of the day for me goes to the Rock Cob with Rocktober blend. I just cleaned it out and it's all ready to roll (rocknroll)

    Having a short mid-dinner smoke of Peretti Midnight in the black Rock Cob while the spaghetti sauce simmers some more. Then I'll dish it up and finish pigging out.

    I just fed Suzy and Molly some whitefish and tuna, and I'm feeding my nic habit with a bowl of Voodoo Queen in a 1978 slight bend CAO Turk's Head Meer. More ice water to drink.
