    I had some kind of virus last week that put me down for a couple of days. After some meds and rest, I bounced back, but still had a little nagging cough. I abstained from smoking until the cough went away (yesterday), and got to enjoy a bowl this evening.

    Gorgeous fall weather in Texas, so I sat on the back deck. It was a short decision what to smoke- Stonehaven in my Country Gent. I was greedy while loading it too. I stuffed a bunch of coarse strands in the bottom 2/3 and rubbed some out to top off. I packed a little more than normal, hoping it would last longer.

    Man, what a nice smoke. The flavor, the pipe, the company... my wife sat outside with me and chatted while my 10 year old read a book and the 3 year old rode his tricycle. Dog laid out on one side of my chair and cat on the other. Ahhhh... what a relaxing evening. :bing:

    Now, what to choose to take to work for lunch smoke tomorrow.

    Bowl # 2 at lunchtime today- Penzance in my bent Neerup. Oooooo Ahhhhh :bing:

    At some point, I will have to get back to test mode. After a 2 week ban, I've just been craving the stuff I know is really good. I'll have to get back into the samples this weekend... maybe. :rolleyes:

    I wish I had your discipline . When I get sick I continue to smoke . It's my brains way of telling my body that he's the boss . It probably dosent do any good but the guy in the skull wont listen anyway .Glad youre feeling better and it sounded like a perfect scene on yer back deck !
