    Now smoking Jim's Evolving Work Blend in a 2003 Stanwell Golden Danish 56 Rusticated Canadian with a black vulcanite stem. Taking a short work break to feed Suzy and Molly, and to pace myself.

Watching Magnum Force.

    Curly Block in cube cuts, in my largest pipe, a massive Castello IPCPR. Starting an experiment of a full day delayed on-off-on smoking to see how the flavor develops over time. There are 5 coins in the big Dublin bowl.

    Well ... that ruined made my day. Wow, a Nirvana smoke. I planned on coming back periodically, but now 2 hours later and I’m blissfully enjoying a wonderful smoke with a huge bowl of aged Curly Block. Sitting outside on a perfect day with the dogs. I had plans to do stuff, but I can’t remember them now.
