Holy ! I love that bowl!
Suzy's finally gone to sleep, so I can work. Even though she's a cat and not a dog, in her honor, I'm smoking Man's Best Friend in a 1978 smooth three quarter bend Danish Special. My next drink is going to Simply Lemonade in a properly chilled glass. No icebergs in lemonade though. That request came from the lemons. They're snobby that way.
Hello. Had some St. James Flake in a group 4 Dunhill Shell Briar LBS from 1962. How's that for fancy? Condolences to you, Rockbass.
Beautiful day here in Alabama. Breezy, in the mid 70's or so, not much to complain about. I sure am ready for some cold weather though. Or at least some weather that requires me to wear long pants. Haven't worn anything but shorts for 5 months now. I'm jealous of your weather, Berg. Not necessarily jealous of your heating bill, but jealous of your weather all the same.
Only 25 pages behind, but I will catch up, oh yes... I will catch up...
Had 14 bowls the last 2 days, 10 in the AIC(Its the Timex of pipes) and currently smoking I have no idea what with Petey Greene(it was handy and had stuff in it) and some cold tea, the floaty stuff has melted
All of the above smoking was 99% KingsBridge(Thanks to Rakemepip!)
Puff on, and keep Pooping those tins!
Mans best friend is a damn good smoke ! Enjoy
I made my Wine run , just table wines today ... some Frontera Malbec and some Hogue Cab . The Ingles food store is finally carrying Houge Genesis , which is a big gun Cab that I am very fond of . Both the regular line Hogue and the Genesis line now have screw caps , which I'm glad to see , because it's the future and screw caps are the way to go , as they dont crap out like cork . People still think of cheap wine when they see screw caps , which is a shame . Anyway , that's what I call excitement in the mountains .. lol .
Smoked an absolute perfect bowl of Germains Royal Jersey Perique in my new Savinelli Tevere Rustic Billiard .... I'm completely enamored with these pipes .. perfect ! Fixin to snuff some Tube Rose before yard work
Been painting since 6:00am. I Quit.
Been smoking some C.H. and and Rock Cob Vir\burl blend in the bullet proof cob. The pipe prefered by 9 out of 11 painters. Just finished some mystery rock cob blend in a Wilke.
All my best Rockbass
Been there Rockbass, my condolences to you. SWR in a Custombilt. Here's to Susi.
Moved on to some Dunhill Flake in the Paykoc meer. Contemplating whether another whiskey sour would be a good idea--I think it might!
Only a JimInks could get along with snobby lemons. Must be the advice he gets from Mr. Wooly.
I am watching the: Josef 
In 1915, on the Eastern front, in Galicia, Croatian soldiers under the Austro-Hungarian flag are waging a war against the Russian army and gangs of Chircassians. An Austro-Hungarian soldier, wounded and robbed, wakes up in the battlefield. He takes a uniform and army tag from a fallen soldier and so he accidentally acquires a new identity. Under his new nom-de guerre, Sergeant Josef, he begins his journey across this unfamiliar, foreign and war-torn land.
Do you remember a sergeant Josip Broz
latter know as Tito? http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0864482/bio
while i am smoking: Planta Nr. 1.
Few people bother to point out this immensely useful piece of wisdom. Well said, FnB.
Whenever Stephen Fry is asked which historical figures he'd most like to have dinner with, his answer is usually something like: None of them ... they were probably pillocks in real life. I'd much rather spend the evening with one of their many excellent books. That would enable me to know them actually much better.
Meditating a bit on the best choice for a commemorative smoke in honor of Rockbass' Susi, I've chosen my steady long-term favorite ...
MB Mixture in a dedicated straight MM Washington.
FVF in my Stanwell. Drinking a rum and cream soda, never mixed those two before and its delicious.
Listening to radio shows, but it's almost time for the Red Sox-Rays game, so I'll switch over soon. Still working and now smoking CD Blend in a smooth briar calabash shaped Butz-Choquin Maitre Pipier JR Fait Main with a horn ferrule.
It's too bad the old time radio channel on the XM can only play shows from the archives of Radio Spirits. I've been listening to You Bet Your Life with the one, the only... Groucho!, from my own collection. Can't do that with the XM, because Radio Spirits doesn't sell episodes of YBYL. It always pays to have your own collection.
I said this elsewhere but Peterson's Sherlock Holmes in a Country Gent with a Yeungling Lager. I'd highly recommend the pairing. The flavors worked very well together.
C&D Opening Night in a Savinelli Sherwood bulldog.
Moments away from smoking Wessex Dark Flake in a brown rusticated slight bend 1982 Savinelli Non Pareil 99 Dublin with a lucite ferrule and stem. The Red Sox and Rays are scoreless in the first inning. I imagine this will be a closer game than last night. A bottle of Cheerwine is my drink.
Here's to Susi.
I'm off on a bike ride with my half bent Pete bulldog and McC's 5110 to have by the Lake.
I have a tin of "Man's Best Friend" I have yet to try. What's that like? So many tins open that I'm waiting for an opening to crack it.
Spent 5 hours cleaning and prepping at the duplex. And now back home on the deck with Condor in my Peterson Standard Mersch. I never stray far from my dark master.
