Now smoking MacBaren Modern Virginia Flake in a post WW2 Pre-Republic Peterson Dublin straight smooth X155 Bulldog with a sterling silver band and a black vulcanite p-lip stem. Finishing work early tonight to work on other stuff.
Smoking some Carter Hall in my Dad's birth year, 1929 Dunhill smooth billiard. We buried Dad's last surviving sibling this week. He is the 7th of 12 kids, and now is the last one left from his family at 88 years old. ::
Almost a quarter of the way through my first smoke of the day, which is Edward G. Robinson's Pipe Blend in a 1982 black sandblasted paneled slight bend Savinelli flat bottom sitter with a black vulcanite stem. Simply Orange is my drink. Molly was happy to see me up early, and she hasn't stopped demanding attention since. I threw a lot of ear plugs and catnip balls for her to chase, and she finally, just now, wore down. Suzy is more interested in reading the lines of her inner eyelids. She'll never be an actress reading lines that way.
Started my day with Cornell & Diehl: Old Joe Krantz in a Meer. Now in to some Peter Stokkebye: Cube Cut in a MM Cob with a Beer. I like the cube cut format and bought a pound to try out. It's good, but far removed from my beloved Condor Plug...
Relaxing after a great grilled ham and cheese and am part way through this bowl of year 2002 Wessex Sovereign Curly Cut in a smooth straight early 1960s Lane era Charatan Executive Extra Large stretch apple with diagonal channel cuts on the lower right and left of the bowl along with a black vulcanite double comfort stem. This pipe was formerly owned by actor William Conrad. A bottle of Cheerwine is my drink. Watching Mad Dog Russo.
