    No kidding. I thought that a year or two was "aged".

    Went to visit my Dad after work for a nice visit. He gave me his pipes a few years ago and I have never thought to ask him what tobacco he smoked. So I finally asked him. He told me it was "Flying Dutchman." He thinks it came in a blue tin. I asked him if he smoked anything else and he told me he tried Prince Albert but hated it. Think I'll smoke a bowl of Father Dempsey in one of his pipes. Not sure of the maker but it was made in Belgium and has an acrylic bowl and it is meer lined. Great smoker! This was one pipe that stood out to me when I was a kid cause I thought it looked cool. You Ladies and Gents have a fine fine PSF evening!

    It's been almost two weeks since my last pipe, but my cold is totally gone and my sinuses are clear, so I'm up for some more! I've got some Elizabethan Mixture in my Julius Vesz Birthday Dublin and a pint of Wellington Imperial Russian Stout (8% ABV). Should be good out on the cold balcony!

    It's been a long work week, and I still have one day to go. After a bowl of the last of the University Flake I received from cigarsarge I'm winding down with a bowl of CH in the MM Spoolcob. Washing it down with a bottle of Anchor Liberty Ale.

    Part way through smoking Wessex Dark Flake in a brown rusticated slight bend 1982 Savinelli Non Pareil 99 Dublin with a lucite ferrule and stem. Ice water properly chilled with floaty il icebergs who appreciate DBear's earlier concern about not being used to cool down my hot tea, but they weren't, uh, sweating the omission.

    Lovely pipe! Glad you're feeling better! There was something nasty tearing through the city a few weeks ago.

    Yeah, it sucked, though I'm not sure whether I picked it up in Chicago, or already had it when I got there. Either way, it's good to be back on top of the world :D

    Some more Mac Baren Halberg Red Label in a Ben Wade Apple, which can easily double as a Tomato ...

    This pipe tastes better when it's an Apple though. I don't think it's psychological.

    Is that an English made, Brogue, by chance?

    For me it's G.L. Pease Sextant in a bent, rusticated, Italian egg.

    Yes indeed it is ... very well spotted, Sir. I love this pipe, which was very reasonably priced. And it feels so good in the hand I never want to set it down.

    Still huffing on the luscious, mildly fragrant Halberg Red Label ... my favorite tobacco ... this week.

    Working and now smoking McCranie's Red Ribbon 1983 in a 1983 three quarter bend medium brown Ascorti KS Business Dublin. Listening to the news on the XM.

    First and only smoke of the day, the dregs of last night's Artisan's Blend in the bottom of my Trevi billiard, mostly filled with Consummate Gentleman. I'm almost to the Artisan's Blend, though, and it's getting heavier as a result. These are two very good blends. I recommend Ashton tobaccos.

    Thank you as well. That is a fantastic pipe. I have a small collection of Brogues. That looks like a Prince shape. But it could be the angle of the photo that gives me that impression. I have a Prince that was destined to be a Brogue, no doubt it was. However, it is marked "Reject London Made" due to a small, but obvious, fill. I envy you for that one my friend. Nice, indeed. Kudos.:puffy:

    Earlier I had Solani ABF in a Castello Great Line Dublin with Ethiopian Amaro black coffee made in a Press. Fabulous combo! Then I treated myself with FVF from 1999 in a Dunhill Group 6 Ring Grain Billiard with fresh brewed Earl Grey ice tea with imported floaty little icebergs from the JimInks Ice Works Co. Somehow they manage to keep your' drink at the perfect drinking temperature. Then I had HH Vintage Syrian thanks to JimInks in a Davorin Morta Bent Half Tulip with the remainder of the ice tea. Those icebergs were still floating! I don't know how that damn dog gets them to do that!
