Erinmore Flake in a BST. Watching the '49ers dominate (although it is early) the Texans
Continued RockCob Festivities
MBNavy Mixture in Black Rock Pipe that somewhat resembles a petrified corn cob pipe
Vin Scully just makes the game. I love that guy for helping me like baseball. All others are compared to him. Living in So Cal, I guess I'm a bit spoiled in that regard.
On the menu tonight is some Perfection plug burley in my Diplomat cob. ahhhhh I hate sunday nights, always means back to work in the morning.
A bowl of Dunbar in my Bjarn Viking while I catch up on some reading for school. Let me tell you that reading pathophysiology is the written version of watching paint dry. Ugh.
One of the many things about Vin Scully that amazes me is that he does not sound like an 85 year old man. There's hardly any age in his voice. He always calls the games without a partner, which is not an easy task even for younger men. I remember three years ago, Vin called a 17 inning home game that ended after 2 am PST time. He probably got home about 4 am. The Dodgers had a noon game, which Vin called and it went ten innings. I'd like to see any other 82 old man do that, keep his voice and stay sharp minded, too. No sign of fatigue. Just incredible. And he's a humble and very nice man. He never shows the slightest hint of ego. Two weeks ago, a proposal was made to rename a street after Vin, and he turned down the idea, saying it wasn't necessary. I'd say he's one of the most admirable men in public life, and I'm not even a Dodgers fan.
Club blend in a large chacom billiard.
I was so busy praising Vin that I forgot to list what I'm smoking, which is the smooth and creamy HH Vintage Syrian in a 1990s smooth Peterson Captain Pete XL80 bulldog.
Braves just tied the game 4-4 in the 3rd. Both teams have made a sloppy play or two already.
Cheering on the Braves tonight... I wanted to smoke something I hadn't tried in a while, so I grabbed a jar of Balkan Sasieni dated 10/2007. It has mellowed some from memory (no more bite) & is delivering an uncomplicated smoke. Not sure I will replace this blend once it is gone, but I'm happy to revisit it.
I don't know how you can make a statement like that! I for one am a gentleman and I never tell, ever. From some I have met in here there are a lot of gentlemen that post in this thread and some that are not so much. They may be like me in resenting people assuming too much.
The last of my Strang sample (thanks WalkinStick) in my birthday pipe - a Julius Vesz Dublin. It's a beautiful night in Toronto.
Smoking some AJ's Vaper in the Medico Apple to calm my nerves a bit after reading some of the remarks displayed over the last half dozen or so pages. Can't believe the nerve of that guy! New cuppa Pg tips tea. Cool tonight.
DE Meat Pie in a Savinelli
Smoking some of the black woods flake that captain gifted me from his new and improved man cave. Thanks buddy. This stuff is great.
What brand of pipe is that? - it is awesome
Storm front is one of my favorites. I also like oriental dusk. It is as close to a cigar in a pipe as I have ever had. I like his quad Virginia too straight and natural Virginias make a blend not unlike union square. If you like Virginia's I would look at that and cool hand fluke.
Tilbury in a Tonni Nielsen elephant's foot accompanied by some Russell's Reserve
pulled out the McConnell's scottish cake and Grand theft auto/Pumpkin beer got the best of me
Dunhill/GBF in my no name pete copycat. A pipe friend came over today and let me use his new zippo pipe lighter and I really liked it. Its just so much easier than messing around with a bic. I'll be getting one soon now.
