    Just finished MacBaren Navy Flake in a 1980s Peterson 314 Full Bend black Sandblast system pipe. Been working and even got a short nap in. Woke up because Suzy came in, stretched out on my chest, and proved that my car isn't the only thing with a loud motor. Well, on to get a smoke and a drink.

    The drink I got was ice tea properly chilled with nice li'l baby icebergs who don't care how they melt so long as they look good doing it. The smoke I got is Tilbury in a 2003 black grain etched Karl Erik Ekstravagant horn with a smooth top. May dry out some SJF for later. Haven't smoked that lately.

    Hamborger Veermaster in the Rossi at my b&m. I needed to get out of the house for a while. I've been working from home so much I was getting a little stir crazy.

    I just picked up this tin and am really happy so far. Great taste but I have to say if someone told me this had perique I wouldn't be surprised. I know it doesn't but it has a bit of that peppery flavor. I think smoking a tin of this will help me taste the difference between straight Virginia and a vaper.

    What a great day to smoke a couple of bowls. Finished up the honey-do list early, fajitas for lunch, and now on my second bowl.

    First was HU Director's Cut in a Jake Hackert spool. Now smoking HUDC in an Apelt cone. I'm digging this blend- thanks Snake!

    I'm nuts for HV and have smoked a fair amount of it. If you dry it a bit, and rub it out, it has the grassy flavor with a little pepper. If you fold & stuff it without drying, it's more malty with a little sweet Viriginia-ness.

    I folded and stuffed right after cracking the tin and am getting that sweet Virginia taste, something like raisins, but also a decent amount of pepper. I'll dry and rub it out next time to see if I can taste a difference.

    Last pipe of the night is Syrian Reserve, thanks to Billy Ockham, in the thick walled MM Diplomat with blue and white Forever Stem. Good night Mrs Calabash, wherever she is, and to all Puffer's Pipesters and PG Tipplers. :D See you all in 3 0r 7 depending on if the night crew shows up or I sleep until Monday a.m. :confused:
