    Smoked a bit of Haunted Bookshop to get my eyes open, next I'll smoke some Kendal Kentucky as my official morning bowl.

    Escudo in the same Puppy Mill short clay. Yowza! After bummy bowls in briar, a meer, a Falcon and a LePeltier clay, this little pipe is really making this vaper sing! This is what i'd hoped to get from a tin i've sat on for a couple years.

    Thanks Rewster. I bought this pipe in 1991 at Schwabs in Lexington, Ky.
    Sam Martin passed away in 1993.

    I'm going to take a little space to vent a little, if you all will permit me so. I'm sitting here smoking, trying to calm my nerves after having just read my father's obituary. He had been battling cancer for about a year, but the road came to an abrupt end on New Year's Eve, when the mass separated from his windpipe and he died in my arms. On Christmas day we celebrated his birthday (Christmas Eve), and I gave him a pipe, some tobacco, and a log in for this forum that I had set up for him. He only got to log on once, to talk with me about tobacco that his wife might not gripe about being smoked in the house.

    My father was a great man, and not even a great man by measure of actions or thoughts. He was even more rare among great men, for he was great by virtue of who he was. Many people who knew him and have offered condolences tell me that he was their best friend. Fortunately, I happen to believe this is true. My father was a man who genuinely cared for people, who could talk to anyone but not fake being nice. He was genuinely interested in the well being of those around him, and even in the midst of everything going on, often went out of his way to help anyone he could. He always gave just a little bit more than he had to give. He embodied every virtue I could ever hope to aspire to, and though I am not half the man he was, if I can raise my son to be half the man he was - then I will have accomplished something in this life that no other man on earth can touch.

    My sincerest condolences, DMW. You are fortunate to have had such a great father and to have shared good times with him, as many these days never know theirs.

    This afternoon I'm trying another tobacco the honorable TxPipesmoker recently sent me, C&D's Trinidad. So far I haven't picked up on the deer tongue in this one, though it's early in the bowl, so I will give it some time. The flavor of Cornell and Diehl's Burley is so nice and rich, it's not like anything else I've tried. The slight downside is that it also packs a HUGE nicotine punch, and despite being somewhat immune to the stuff as a (for now) cigarette smoker, I decided to stop and put a paper filter in my Country Gentleman in hopes of taking the edge off of it. Whew!

    I am very sorry for your loss. It sounds like we all lost something here. Good men are rare these days.
