    [​IMG] Mull this over: I have been out of booze for six days now and only remember the fact when I go to pour my nightcap. Living the senior moment 24/7, BUT today I remembered and will be enjoying HH Old Dark Fired on the way to the market. note: eggs, bread, milk, assorted caffeine purveyors, what was the last thing.....

    MacBaren Club Blend in a BST Canadian. Received an invitation to go to Sweden Nov 8th, so mulling it over while this pipe is putting a smile on my face. Less than 3 hours to AC race 14. The US has been improving so much that they may actually have a chance to keep the cup. 15C(59F)H51%

    Lots of baseball today! For the first time, I'm smoking Dark Twist Roll Cake in a 1975 medium bend sandblasted looking, smooth on the sides yellow Pioneer meer. I've only had a few puffs and am already liking the flavor. Why does it remind me of rum raisin Christmas cookies???

    I was remiss yesterday in remembering it was the 40th anniversary of the death of Jim Croce. Here's an audio by somebody in the audience with a hand held tape recorder who got most of what proved to be Jim's final concert. An hour later, he and three others died in a plane crash due to pilot error.

    Stryder cat has to stay the night at the vets. I just dropped him off and when I walked in I still looked for him. Weird. The weather is perfect today, got the windows wide open and I am smoking some LNF in the POY. Happy saturday everyone!

    Hanging out with Pops today. He's smoking Mcclellands 221b Arcadia in the pipe I got him when I was in highschool. I've got some Squadron Leader going in the MM Diplomat

    Well since the other day I posted on having one of my best ever smokes of Mick McQuaid Plug I figured whilst awaiting the Luxury Bullseye Flakes to reach their proper potential for a smoke I'd have some Mick in the Jan Zeman Kingfisher squat Volcano, dang I think Mick has hit his stride another extrodinary smoke with a PRM of Jamaican Blue Mountain, strong and black, on the side.

    I have to spend more time in here.

    Mike, I am in Oregon and if I correctly remember what my 7th grade science teacher told me, we cannot have the same weather. :beyes:

    I will admit I have never tried Clan, but from what I have heard is it possible your pipe tool simply chose suicide? :whis:

    Rays lead the O's 3-0 in the 7th, Yankees lead the Giants 6-0 in the 8th. I see Stormy's back in town, possibly looking for some burley blend or something. Knowing him, he'll find what he's searching for. I decided I want another smoke with some sweetness, so it's Metropolitain in a 1981 smooth full bend Mauro Series Two 315 p-lip that copies the Peterson system. A can of Mountain Dew is my drink, brought to me by the Saint Bernard.

    MDaws79. I hope the cat is better soon and home.

    Trying out the red Rockcob with Davidoff Flake Medallions. This is the thickest walled and narrowest bowled pipe I have and it's quite a different smoker from anything I'm used to. Nice open draw like my BSTs so I get to smoke it the way I want rather than being restricted by the pipemaker's choices. Oh the sorrow, I'll have to smoke a couple more bowls of this since it seems like the perique and cavendish are a little more prominent than normal after the rock warms up. Life's tough, and smoking a pipe that I could deliver a final bonk to a bass with is a task that I am up for.
    21C(70F)H38% An hour to the AC race and I'm not sure if I care who wins in the end, I just want it to go the full 17 races possible since it's great to watch.

    When I woke up this morning I felt like :poop:. After 2 hours at work I had a runny nose, after 4 hours a headache, 6 hours at work and the pain in the limbs started, after 10 hours I left work early, now I'm home - quite ill and for the first time I don't want to smoke a pipe.
    Good evening all, guess you just have to smoke a bowl for me - keep up the good smokes - PUFF ON!
