    Latepost, but last night I smoked some Russ Ouellette's Fireworks in a GBD Prehistoric 135. Seemed like the appropiate blend to smoke while watching all the fireworks from up on my hill. Happy 2018, everyone!

    Popped a 2014 tin of McClelland 221b Black Shag.
    First thought was.. "Is this just relabeled #25?". Beautiful look to it and smelled nice, though less McCatsup than the #25.

    Upon lighting and retrohaling there is most certainly the slightest hint of oriental. A Persian slippers worth. It's sweet and tangy in the nose and I actually enjoy it. Happy New year!

    Heading out for a New Year's meal with a good friend and I'll be taking along my last bowl of Peterson Balkan Delight and my trusty Chacom smooth Canadian. The blend provides a fair smoke, however there are far too many better English blends on the market, so I won't be sad to see this tin go.

    cigrmstr --- love that shape, beautiful pipe!

    Smoking some Wessex flakes in combination: Campaign 1/2 and Wessex Burley Slice 1/2 ... all in a Cavicchi Rusticated Canadian.

    After some time he felt for his pipe. It was not broken, and that was something. Then he felt for his pouch, and there was some tobacco in it, and that was something more. Then he felt for matches and he could not find any at all, and that shattered his hopes completely.

    I live in FL and typically smoke inside. I'm staying out at my brothers lake front cottage this week and can't do that here.
    NOW, I know what it's like to deal with cold weather! It's been blowing in from the north which is right off the lake since I got here NYR's eve.
    My kids are coming to spend what's left of the week with me here, and are due 'in' today. I have to drive an hour and a half now, to go get my daughter. I won't be able to TRY to bust up some firewood. I did some yesterday and it 'bout kilt me.
    There's a heat pump here, and it's not efficient in temps below 40, and it's 34 here now, and dropping.
    I'm trying to nibble at a bowl now and then, and smoked my og Legend with a Peterson P lip stem and Two Timer this a.m.
    brrrr! Most of the year, I live in temps 60 degrees warmer.
    mike. Happy New Year!
