Kingfisher in a savinelli
Now ASTB in a boswell.
Elizabethan in a Stanwell billiard, accompanied by some Buffalo Trace
Tonight it's SG Balkan Flake in the Altinok Bent Apple Spigot. I've got Wellington Imperial Russian Stout (8% alc. vol.) on the side.
Dodgers and Cardinals are tied 2-2 in the + . I'm smoking Briggs Match in a 1970s medium bend smooth Ben Wade Golden Walnut. Decided to quit work and watch the game, though I turned the sound off so I can hear Vin Scully do the call.
It's strange for me how I can smoke a Lat forward blend after a whole day of smoking Burleys and Va's and VaPer's but as soon as I smoke Latakia, I can only smoke Latakia for the rest of the day. It throws my taste buds off for the remainder of the whole day. So, I had Compton's Balkan Mixture earlier and now it's Compton's York Full Mixture. It is a beautiful English blend with Red Va's, Black Cav, Oriental's and a very healthy dose of Latakia. Maxim does a great job of blending and is a genius. Fresh brewed ice tea on the side.
Of course I had to import rather large floaty icebergs from the Jiminks Ice Works Company to insure that my drink of choice would stay at the proper drinking temperature but you know how that works.
Dodgers and Cardinals are still tied 2-2 in the 12th. I'm smoking Louisiana Red in a straight Lane era Charatan black with burgundy undertone sandblasted billiard 420. And having more ice water to drink. Paul wanted some of the vintage icebergs, and we were happy to oblige.
Ten Russians in the Green Monster. Flying solo on a Friday for the first time in a long time. It's nice to relax.
Got back yesterday from a two week fishing trip in Mozambique. Great time & some good fish. Up early this morning & now it's coffee & a bowl of FVF in a GBD billiard. Beautiful day here - clear & cool compared to the oppressive heat of the Moz coast.
Cards won in 13 innings. I'm smoking Bosphrous Cruise in a medium bend 2001 Ural lattice Rhodesian with a yellow stem with white swirls. Thought some latakia would perk me up some or make me sleepy. If it's the latter, I'll go to bed early.
I've been busy working catching up for the time I lost watching the end of the baseball game. I just finished smoking Kendal's #7 (thanks Flatbush Paul) in a 1970s slight bend black sandblasted Comoy's Silver Cloud 624. Just fed Suzy and Molly some tuna because they were sweet enough to leave me be as I worked. Going now for my next smoke.
I thought about smoking Angler's Dream, but my taste buds had a craving for 1980s Sir Walter Raleigh in a medium bend 2002 MM Legend cob. I know some people look down at smoking OTC's, but sometimes, they are just what you need.
Well yins almost made it ya mugs, so I'm gonna give yins a pass this time see since I got up early, myeah. Well I snuck out and finished that bowl from last night so I needed to start fresh and it was 7 y/o Anni Kake in the MM Mizzou with plum Forever Stem, PRM #2, strong and black with the lump behind me on the bed. Good morning PSFer's..........
You, ya big mug! I knew it'd happen once you smoked EGR, see. Now, yer talkin' sense, see. Myeah!
Last smoke before sleep is Angler's Dream in a 1980 three quarter bend briar Butz-Choquin 55 skull bowl pipe. I managed to get this one in, anyway! I thought about smoking EGR instead, thanks to Mssr. Fish, but that'll wait. I had the craving for this tobacco. One of the best smelling blends out of a tub there is. Tastes really good, too. If you like OTCs at all, you'll probably like this one.
I am watching: Viva Zapata
The director Elia Kazan is Greek,his ream name is Elias Kazantzoglou.
John Patton's Winter Heartbeat.
Up early this Saturday morning. Just could not sleep. Checking in on the night crew and JimInks appeared to be holding down the shift pretty much solo until Mr. Fish awoke early like me. Anyways, the coffee is brewed and I have loaded the Ashton with Mc. C's # 2015 for my first smoke today. Think I will take the Kindle to the fat chair and see if I can read myself back to sleep.
Is it a Slap your Bitch Movie
Been smoking Nightcap in the Pete since this morning but decided to be weird and finish the night with CH in a cob. The CH supply is running low so it will be Wessex burley slice until the next 4noggins order comes through.
