    Last smoke before sleep is Blue Danube in the very first pipe I ever bought ($2.95) in 1974; a smooth three quarter bend Dr. Grabow Omega. Getting near the end of this tin that I reviewed for Sutliff. Reading box scores and watching Suzy and Molly relax after getting a nice tuna meal.

    Been feeling under the weather today so I haven't smoked anything but I'm about to light a bowl of Pete NC in the Falcon before I play some GTA V. If that goes well I'll have a bowl of Hyde Park in the Mr Brog. Here's hoping.

    It was, I soon realised, a mistake to box up nearly all my pipes and tobacco. Also, I was flat out of MacB Va No 1. I rectified this with a quick stop at a local B&M where I bougt a pouch of said tobacco and a nice Ratos New Standard dublin. Ratos does not, as far as I know, actually make any pipes but is a well respected brand here in Sweden and I´ve never yet come across a bad Ratos pipe. This specimen was (at least that´s what the markings say) handmade i France from old briar. It cost med 495 SEK (that´s the going rate for such pipes) or, roughly, 80 dollars. That´s what I consider a medium priced briar. For a Peterson I will have to pay about 100 dollars (or more).

    The inagural bowl sustained me on my walk home from my office. It proved to be an exellent smoker and no relight was necessary. After lunch I plan to fill it with Greve Gilbert Hamiltons Blandning. That baccy in a Ratos constitutes a classic swedish smoke. Am actually looking forward to it but first I have to prepare (fry) some baltic herring, fix mashed potatoes and find the jar with lingonberries.

    well today's the day... or the estimated day anyway.... that my pipe lot from ebay should be delivered.... the sole reason i bought that tin of mac baren. but wait i must so for now its prince albert in the grabow duke... i like to have the duke as my work pipe its slender with a small bowl... easy to carry in your pocket, quick to smoke, and if i smoked it at home my girlfriend would wonder where it came from and id be banned from every drugstore and tobaccolist

    H&H Acadian Perique in the MM Legend. Two more bowls or so and this tin is history.

    No doubt the best smoking briar I've ever owned! Thanks.

    Same stuff as you used to draw all over the chop shop with :th1:
    This particular soapstone came from the St Louis Crayon Co. and they use it to make refills for metal marking pens and they also use this white soapstone to make crayons. They used to offer uncut bricks set aside for local college art classes and i picked up the very last brick. Unfortunately they were not going to offer these anymore because no body bought them due to the fractures.

    Great photo, LD ... very nice patina on that pipe! One of the best reasons for buying a smooth I think.

    MB Dark Twist in a straight MM Pride ... even this cob has colored nicely with just a few months' smoking. After all, it's a meerschaum ... that just happens to be from Missouri.

    Wow we finally got a change in the weather forecast! Highs in the low 8o's lows in the 60's and a 30% chance of rain today and 80% for Friday! We really need the rain.
    I tried DGT ing some chocolate flake in my new to me church warden...but it is way to unwieldy to smoke before the first pot of coffee, so I switched to 956 match in a Larson prince. Much easier to handle in the fog. :)
    Lots of black coffee to help clear said fog.
