    I spent the morning fighting with fuses and filaments. Then, this afternoon, I accompanied the Lady of the Manor to a Christmas play put on by several local retail establishments. She played the role of a benevolent millionairess, while I gave a stand up performance as her pet pack mule. Now, it’s time for Ash & Ember’s Mango McFly in a mid-40s D&P Pipe Works Spartan v3.

    Gotta say, this is my favorite part of the day so far.

    RESPECT THE PIPE!

    I've been switching on and off all evening between 221b Arcadia in a GBD Virgin square-shanked billiard with a saddle-bit, and HH Old Dark Fired in a Royal Falcon zulu, switching on and off between reading Shelby Foote's Narrative of the Civil War vol II, and listening to the recorded audio file of The Complete Sherlock Holmes. I'm not in heaven yet, but I'm close enough for now.

    Correction to my previous post-

    Just got very confused at myself, flipped the book over, and realized my mistake. It's The Civil War: A Narrative, still vol II, still written by the great, pipe-smoking Shelby Foote. Still smoking the Old Dark Fired because it burns forever.
