    I'm now smoking Wessex Dark Flake in a 1984 black sandblasted straight Dunhill Shell 4103 Billiard. My drink is a can of 7-Up. I could have written this sooner, but Suzy is being an attention sponge, and keeps grabbing my left hand, making it hard to type. Still no score in the baseball game, now in the third inning.

    I'll have to take a deeper look into all the nuances of this blend before trying to describe it in more detail, but Wicker Man sent me some very fine VA/OR. Teddys York-Shire Tobacco is a cake tobacco, which is surprisingly mild - for someone who smokes blending latakia (neat!) :byg:
    I would like to thank you again Mr Wicker Man. I have a lot of respect for all the work you've put into this project - and the results show it was well worth all the effort.
    You rock. And so does Teddy. :appl:

    Smoking some Dan's St Bernard in the Bentley bulldog before sleep time. good night all.

    The boss lady is headed out with her sister to do wedding stuff, so I'm on the porch. I'm smoking Dark flake in the Basil Meadows perfect pipe and drinking a Bell's Two Hearted Ale. Surfing around here and westcoastshaving. What a slippery slope I'm sliding down now...

    Hi,

    Finished a bowl of Penzance in the spillsquatch, and promptly reloaded said pipe with Dark Flake. Coors Light on the side, 'cause I'm still classy.

    Well we've got the synchronized smoking down. Now I just need to get you drinking something other than water.

    Just finished Tambolaka in a meer. Now feeling dizzy. That stuff really separates the men from the girls.

    Occasionally and in smallish doses, yes! Incidentally, is it supposed to be very dry? Mine was. I've hydrated it a bit, but didn't do so too much, in case it is meant to be - I didn't want to spoil it.

    Not at all a bad idea. I don't have a Forever Stem yet, but my next smoke will be Kendal Dark in a cob. :th1:

    Red Sox lead the Tigers 1-0 in the 7th. It's been a great pitcher's duel today. Since I have the evening off for a change, I decided it was time to break out a long smoke in a pipe I've only smoked three times. Tilbury in a 2002 smooth full bend Two dot Dorelio Rovera Ardor Venere Extra Giant Fantasy flat front sitter with a blue ferrule and silver covered tenon. A bottle of Cheerwine is my drink. Vin and the Dodgers play the Cardinals at 8 EST.

    Have you tried MacBaren Burley London Blend? I like that one quite a bit.

    Had a couple bowls of CH in the Pat w/Forever stem while driving. Home now and the last pipe of the day is ODF in the Paykoc meer--a good way to end the day.
