    Now smoking Edgeworth Ready Rubbed Match in a 1979 straight smooth Dr. Grabow Grand Duke 45 pot with a black vulcanite tapered stem. This Grabow is a really good smoker, and for years, was my outdoor pipe.

    I made such a tasty mix, that I tried to make it again.
    all approx. equal parts 3 Sails, TwoTimer, almost as much Picayune.
    Burning some in my MM Freehand. It tastes best in cobs, for some reason?

    Back home after running errands. Had a couple bowls of Jim's Va/Bur in the first pipe Trever Talbot made when he went to France many years ago. It's a smooth straight Algerian briar Billiard bowl with a long Canadian acrylic stem, unbranded. Time for a snack.
