    Getting a few bowls smoked before sunrise, as usual, due to the daytime heat and relentless sunshine. I still manage to smoke during the daylight hrs too, but, I always stand in the shade and that moves with the sun. No inside smoking since Jan.

    I just love my mixture of D&R blends consisting of TwoTimer, 3 Sails, and Picayune. I smoke it all the time in all sorts of pipes and it never fails to be smooth, flavorful, and just interesting enough.

    I usually use old Grabows, Cobs, and a couple of simple basic meers. I just smoked a bowl using a Westbrook straight pot.

    Packed for later today, GLP Haddo's Delight, in a slightly bent Luciano smooth author; Luciano pipes I see are getting more expensive. I bought my two at moderate prices, but now they are up there "cresting" 200 bucks or so, and up. I'm liking Haddo's, though my new operating system keeps correcting it to Haddon's, which is unfamiliar to me.

    Packed for later and/or tomorrow, Peter Stokkebye Black Cavendish 201 in a straight pot Amadeus from Greece, nice light weight pipe with a big chamber; this is a vanilla flavored Cavendish that can be smoked as-is or used to mix. I think it will be a mild smoke with lots of volume to the smoke. I want it to dry out first. I plan to use it also to mix with stronger leaf to smooth out the smoke.
