    Half way through this bowl of Old Companion in a smooth 1998 Parker 489 three quarter bend Billiard and a black vulcanite stem. A cup of Maxwell House, neat, is my drink. Watching C-Span 3, which on weekends and government vacations, is The American History TV Channel.

    Kicking off July with a bowl of Tilbury in the bamboo shank Kyriazanos dublin.

    Tobacco's a help because it clears the mind
    But like all your friends it is vilified
    They always say, the right amount's fine

    Three Nuns in a Savinelli bent Dublin. I first tried this blend 2 years ago and didn't really like it so I jarred it up. On his retry (last night was the return) I find it quite good.

    About a third of the way through this bowl of Watch City Flake #558 in a smooth straight early ‘60s Lane era “William Conrad” Charatan Executive Extra Large stretch apple with diagonal channel cuts on the lower right and left of the bowl along with a black vulcanite double comfort stem. A bottle of Mountain Dew made with pure cane sugar is my drink on this very hot and humid day.

    Part way through this bowl of McCranie’s Red Ribbon, vintage 2000 in a smooth straight WW2 Pre-Republic Peterson Sterling Canadian with a sterling silver band and a black vulcanite p-lip stem. Watching the Braves-A's game. Suzy keeps demanding attention as only a cat can do, while her sister Molly is looking at her inner eye lids.

    I really like Former's Straight Grain Flake, which is a killer Va/Per. However, it is too sweet for me, so I cut it with a 3:1 dark/light Burley mix at 50/50. I am slowly dialing that down and finding that the Burley brings out a honey roasted grain sweetness instead of the more sugary type. It's a great experiment and I find this blend to be very pleasant, and I am smoking it in a Savinelli which was a gift from a generous member here.

    All of this is helping me survive working with Wordpress and CSS.
