    Afternoon, fellows.

    Dark Flake u/s in a MM Egg. I have all of these great samples to try, yet I keep reaching for Dark Flake. Sarge and Monkey, I swear I'll get started this week.

    Painter Hills in a Peterson Canadian. Was in a long meeting and now it's over so the pipe can help cut through all the babble.
    Cold front just blew through and took the temp from 25C to 16C(60F)H29% in about 15 minutes.

    No worries.

    I got a bit of GH Black XX that has taken up some of my time this week. (Better than the SG IMO)

    There is one bowl of CHF left. The rest has been barely smoked.

    And now, I got some M79 going in a cob....

    Irish Flake was just begging to be smoked in a Wally Frank billiard.

    Good evening, gents. Penzance in a Dunhill for my after dinner relaxation hour. Then I have a date with Emily Dickinson and Eudora Welty. Better bring some tranquilizers, especially for poor Emily.

    Thanks to nesta, I am burning
    a bowl of Lakeland Brickle Fortissimo.
    I dunno, I'm getting an eau de
    Geranium type of scent. I know
    it's not in the description of it,
    but I'm detecting it anyway.
    I'll fire up another bowl tomorrow
    to see if it repeats.

    :laff: I'm sure it's cooled off some in NJ, and that it is a nice night at the shore. Having grown up (physically, I'm not mentally grown up yet) in NJ, hearing the words "NJ shore" means going on a longish car ride in my mom's old Pinto with no AC to the shore. I don't recall being at the shore so much, we swam and played in the waves I'm sure. Then, with sand in your bathing suit we had to go back to the car. The heat generated in a black Pinto with black vinyl seats is beyond comprehension. I can't go on, it's too traumatic. :)

    There IS something different about it that I can't put my finger on.

    Every time I smoke it I like it well enough, and then next time I want a floral type blend I just go for GH :sh:

    Right now, Erinmore Flake in the Baki

    I was surprised again by a ghost with no name. Two or three years ago i decided to take a bunch of baggies of different tobacco and put them in a desktop humidor. One of them was Peretti's "No Name". Every time i run into one of those baggies, i have to decide if it's worth keeping with the new scent. I smoked 1/2 of the bowl of 5100 and put the bag away for another day. (after marking) I like Lake District scented tobaccos. I'm smoking Grousemoor Plug now. Just every once in a while I light up a blend that I know and like, and ole "No Name" shows up. :rolleyes:

    Smoking my first bowl of Kramer's Father Dempsey, I have read about it being compared to DH 965 (this is much fuller) and The Balkan Sobranie (not even close), it's a stout, rich blend with some sweetness to it, very good IMO, smoking it in a meer-lined Ebonite Brebbia churchwarden...

    It's a nice, cool evening out on the balcony. 4noggins Alamosa is looking to be a keeper and is playing nicely with my Pete System Standard 312.
