PA in a grabow cardinal.
SG Brown Rope 4. In a Peterson 06. Manly stuff this is!
Just finished some sugar barrel in my DGE nose warmer. Very good stuff. Up next will be Two Friends English Chocolate in my Imp Calabash Churchwarden.
Brown Flake Unscented in my MM Diplomat. I need to get me more of this!
Oh yeah, you know, British Columbia is known for its sweltering heat. Signed, Still In Alabama
Solani Silver Flake in a Wally Frank Canadian for the after-dinner smoke. I am friggin' exhausted for some reason.
Cherry Bomb in a Grabow grand duke....this is a great combo.
Just pass me the funnies.
Hmm, haven't had that in a good while. A damn good cherry blend.
After double salt/alcohol and a bunch of bristle cleaners, I have managed to exorcise the latakia ghost from my new (to me) pipe. Now to ghost it back up...with more latakia!
Tonight it's SG Navy Flake in the Peterson System Deluxe 1s Black Blast. Tamper by our very own Briar Boy.
Yes, Berg, but sending it FedEx like I have been for the last year has been costly. Can we switch to USPS? The small delay should not be noticed in the upstate fashion scene.
Penzance in a Squatch.
Last of my Jack Knife plug in a country gentleman.
Need to get me some more, this is one of my favorites.
Great looking pipe.
yes, well in some places it gets very hot in the summer time, but not where I'm at. I have lost my normal Alabama resistance to heat. It is so mild here in Vancouver that I can't take hot or cold any more. But I was working in a long sleeved flannel shirt. I never claimed to be very smart.
I used to live on top of Hudson Bay mountain near Smithers BC, about eight hundred miles due north of Vancouver. The summer got very warm, humid, and full of black flies but winter got down to 40 below on a very regular basis, not figuring the wind chill factor. I lived in Toronto when I still had my Alabama blood. It was very like Alabama in the summer. Very hot and extremly humid. I was leaping about in the summer, having a great time while all my Canadian friends were melting into puddles. Now it would kill me.
Dark Flake in the Country Gent....great combination
GLP Telegraph Hill in the Vauen pot.
Perfect for a cool, overcast evening. Pepper, cinnamon... maybe even a bit of cherry in there, tangy for sure.
Now I'm dizzy, calling it a night boys!
One last smoke before bed. Mac Baren Navy Flake in the Kapet 03. This is a fantastic (mostly) burley blend!
I don't even have a normal Alabama resistance to heat. I just sit in the house and cry all summer. No, but really, summer here really wears me out. Drains ALL my energy by the time September comes. And yeah, I know about that far north temperature swing thing, actually, because I have friends in Fairbanks, AK (and one friend who lives full time on the North Slope, up around Prudhoe Bay). Talk about far north. Interior Alaska has 50-60 below in the winter and 90+ in the summer. Also, daylight ranging from a couple hours a day to never having proper night time. I'm sure you know all this, but I'm a north country junkie born in the wrong damn place, and I'll take any opportunity I get to yak about it. That Vancouver maritime climate/Pacific Ocean thing you've got going on seems like it would be pretty damn nice, though. I like the idea of the Pacific Northwest, but I have to have my snow in the winters, so Vancouver sounds nice in that way.
Anyway, before I put everyone to sleep, on with the show. Wilke #622 in a Soren freehand.
Tried a homemade mixture of McC 5100, McC Turkish ribbon, and PS cube cut burley in a no-name "Italian" system pipe. Surprisingly not bad. Cool, easy burning and bite free. Wow, 100th post!
Thank you sir.
Uhle's Bishop Move (the last of it ) in a meer-lined Ebonite Brebbia churchwarden...
