    Good Sunday morning to you, folks! I’m smoking C&D Exclusive in an MM Pride cob while attempting to peel away the many layers of meaning and metaphor found within the lyrics of schlocky, 80s, pop tunes. This rabbit hole goes deep.

    Considering that it’s been doing nothing but lying around here since it was restored a few weeks ago, I thought it was about time for this pipe to start earning its keep. So, let the break-in begin with Carter Hall in a 1915-192(something) BBB Umbria that was tricksily gifted to me by a friend.

    The copy of Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables in the background was printed by the A.L. Burt Company of New York in 1919. So, these guys kind of grew up together. I think the pipe aged a little better though.
