    Thanks to Flatbush Paul, I'm smoking Compton's Commonweal Mixture in a mid-1970s black rusticated straight Savinelli Estella 915 KS.

    Today being Veteran's Day, I thought I'd post this:

    I've known a lot of men who fought for this country over the years, none of whom considered themselves a hero. Some were wounded in combat, some nearly killed, and some I do indeed consider to be heroes, whether they would want that label applied to them or not. Whatever the war they were in, they did their duty, they came back home and returned to make their own way in the world. Some talked about their experiences, some have not. Most of those I knew are no longer with us. But their answer to the call of duty, their heroism, their sacrifices, their love of country, live in the spirit of those who knew them, and in the eternal spirit of the country whose uniform they proudly wore. Without them, there is no "us," no U.S., no future for we who presently live in their company, or we who survive the dead who fell in combat, or died after living their lives. We live ours because they have lived theirs. Whether their names live etched in the stone of monuments or the winding corridors of our collective consciousness, we bask in the hallowed light of their service so that we shall always be free of oppression, tyranny, and intolerance in the soul of freedom.

    Finish off a bowl of Carter Hall in Dr. Grabow Lark and then this guy will get a well deserved break. It seems to have been a Carter Hall day.

    Welcome back Ephraim!

    Going to smoke a bowl of St Bernard in the Moretti bulldog. I tried to take a pick of the new pouch by sorringowl, but the lighting conditions in here don't want me to be successful today, have to try again another time. But here it is, my classiest accessory:

    Now smoking Edward G. Robinson's Pipe Blend in a 1982 black sandblasted paneled slight bend Savinelli flat bottom sitter. Lunch time is getting closer, and looking into my refrigerator magic crystal ball, I see pizza in my near future.

    Macbaren Latakia (thanks ruffinogold!) in the Sasieni ruff root panelled billiard (thanks ShilowHollow!) with French press coffee.

    I might buy this or something similar for a lighter, after breakfast smoke.
