    Happy New Year folks! I'm starting the year off with a bowl of year 20016 Stonehaven from a freshly opened bag and smoking it in a straight sandblasted pre-transition Barling Exel 249 Fossil T.V.F. black billiard with a silver band and military bit with a black ebonite tapered stem.

    My first smoke of 2019 is Half and Half in my ugliest pipe, a 1950s Wally Frank tasting pipe.

    The way I see it, 2019 has nowhere to go but up from here.

    RESPECT THE PIPE!
