    RmBittner: Unfortunately, I don't sleep like I should, so I end up smoking a lot. I had no idea I smoked 9 bowls yesterday; wow! It's true I don't repeat my tobaccos, but that's because I have so much open stuff from trades and regulars, and the different smokes each time keep my interest going. Variety is the perique of life!

    Just cracked an '05 tin of Pease Ashbury and loaded the Johs. My first go at this blend and so far I'm enjoying it.

    4noggins Harvest Moon (a sample Rich from 4noggins enclosed in my last order, thanks Rich!) in a Dunhill sandblast billiard with nice sharp ridges and a nice nice deep bowl. The Dunhill's last owner treated it poorly and the bowl is badly badly rimmed from charring but it still smokes as sweet as a first kiss and it has a good home now!

    Okay. I decided since I just finished the Solani 127. Now, it's Former Bird's Eye Flake in a 1975 medium bend yellow Pioneer meer.

    And what's probably my last smoke of the evening/morning: Boswell's Bear Blend in a 1979 signed Rossi Oom Paul 1886 natural. I have just enough of this blend for one more bowl.

    07 Stonehaven from Bob (Thanks a million!) in a Tsuge Mizki Dublin. This is my second bowl of Stonehaven and I decided to lightly rub out a flake, beautiful flavor it's such a rich smoke. Now if only it were more readily available! I'm just sincerely happy I am able to smoke it at all.
