HH Old Dark Fired in a pride cob.
New to me, McClelland FMOTB in a trusty ol' MM Legend
I haven't had much time to enjoy my pipes these past few weeks...and this Frog has got my taste buds singing!!
If that doesn't work, it always has a welcoming and happy home in Alabama with its relatives.
About to smoke some Sam's Flake in a no-name English briar. Never had it before, but it smells delicious. Like some kind of honey wheat bread/cereal or something. Really unusual. Hope it's good. I never hear anyone talking about it here, so I guess I'll be the guinea pig.
Hm.... Another essay due tomorrow.Only 2 pages this time.
Time to go outside and smoke a bowl of Haunted Bookshop in the Stanwell to aid the thought process.
Cold brewed coffee on the side.
Lane 1-Q in a basket Czech while playing with my goofy dog and the big knotted rope.
... errr, actually, that is now just ash and dottle. There was a reason it wasn't relighting right!
Edit: Well, Hell's bells ... if I'm gonna do this "codger style" might oughta just go whole hog. CH in the larger estate cob.
I had two bowls of Peterson Special Reserve '11 today, first in the Molly Malone Rhodesidan this morning then the bent brandy this afternoon. This evening's nightcap was some Uhle's Perfection Plug Burley in the Squire.
Back to Painter Hills in a medium IMP meerschaum. Green tea. 11C(52F)H42%
Mac Baren Honey and Chocolate in the Winslow Crown. Great pipe, good blend

One of these days I'll have to order some of 4noggins blends.
Escudo in an Altinok bent egg.
I was struck by the smell of Sam's flake as well, put me in mind of cookie dough.
Great bit of tonquin delight in that flake, if you find you don't care for it I'll certainly take it off your hands (-:
They've been good to deal with. Probably because bulk tobacco is shipped in large baggies and gets compacted so that it feels a little too moist to me, I put the tobacco in to a jar with about a third of the volume left empty, shake it up a bit and it's good to go the next day.
ABF in a Viking with a cup of hot coco
Tonight it's my first go with PS LNF in the Ashton Pebble Grain X Billiard.
Well the pipe I loaded it in has been completely ruined by Condor. I didn't realize the stuff ghosted so bad. One smoke of it and now that pipe makes everything taste like Condor. I'll reserve judgment of Sam's Flake for tomorrow.
So I'm going with some Astley's 44 in a Dunhill.
C&D Turkish Izmir in an MM Pride
That would be a very smart move
Troost Special Cavendish in the Country Gentleman.
Side of Twinnings China Oolong Tea.
Metallica sounds good for music tonight.
After dinner, I smoked Onyx in a full bend big bowl egg shaped Lattice meer. I just lit up Three Friars in a pebble relief Aldo Velani Titan 33 briar OomPaul/Calabash.
PS LNF in an Ashton old church small billiard. Great smoke. I think I could just smoke this all the time. This is to briar what pa of to a cob for me. Oddly, this one works on the moist side for me, folded and stuffed.
