    Taking a short break and am half way through smoking FVF in a small 1982 three quarter bend meer with a smiling turbaned Turk's head.

    Started my evening with French Roast and the burley slice/Pirate Kake mix I have become so fond of.

    Still working, and now smoking Fox and Hound in a 1975 full bend black Dunhill Shell 52021. Ice water chilled to the proper temperature with floaty li'l icebergs a'twistin' and a'turnin' in the glass. Listening to old radio shows as I work.

    Special Latakia Flake in the Marxman rhodesian from Holymolar. I've been tying flies for a while and am lining up quite an arsenal of caddis pupa. Time to reward my hard work with a late-night pipe.

    I usually smoke on Friday night. Tonight was different. A great man and friend of mine brought in a container of old tobacco. It was over 30 years old. He doesn't know exactly but it's from the early seventies approx. It was an english blend that he called Ratners. I have never heard of it. There was about 4 oz. left in it. Each of is had a bowl to smoke. And lemme tell ya, it was amazing! It had the perfect amount of latakia in it. Very smooth. Great note. And even tasted better! Wish I had a ton of it so I could smoke every day.
    Oh, and I also smoked a bowl of Babados Plantation.

    Caddis pupa are a regular part of my arsenal as well. Davie Macphail has a few patterns on Youtube that are outstanding.

    Started off the morning with FVF in a little Pietenpauw nosewarmer Rhodie, coffee on the side.

    Speaking of celebrations - Congrats, WalkinStick, on your wedding day! I doubt you'll be on the forum today to read this, but I thought the occasion should be marked.

    Had to go out for lunch with some students after my first smoke. Back at home now a working on a bowl of Carter Hall in a DGE Poker Nose Warmer with coffee on the side. I have a couple hours before I have to be anywhere. I'm going to sit back and do some well deserved relaxing.

    Work is done for the day, and I celebrated with eating a big slice of cake. Now, thanks to our buddy Flatbush Paul - who I hope is doing well today - I'm smoking Kendal's #7 in a 2013 bent MM Missouri Pride Legend. On to play ear plug catch with Suzy and Molly.

    I may be smoking Angler's Dream in a 2013 medium bend Spillproof corndog cob, but Suzy and Molly were catching the ear plugs, though I think they're worn out from it now. I'll feed them some tuna soon and they'll really be happy.

    SG BBF in a Blakemar 'Prince' - one of a pair, the other being sandblasted. Sometime soon, I'm going to ask Mike Billington (Mr Blakemar) to make me a third, rusticated, so that I've got a trio, one in each of the three basic finishes.
