    Now smoking MacBaren Modern Virginia Flake in a post WW2 Pre-Republic Peterson Dublin straight smooth X155 Bulldog with a sterling silver band and a black vulcanite p-lip stem. Suzy and Molly want some play time, so I'll be busy with that until I tire them out.

    Ryback Gold in a Benton Select 1/4 bent smooth bulldog w/saddle stem. Lots of fills, but this pipe is a pip.

    Just about finished smoking Edward G. Robinson's Pipe Blend in a 2014 Basil Meadows smooth slight bend squashed tomato with an aluminum band and a black pearl acrylic stem. A can of the very delicious Hansen's Mandarin Lime Soda made with pure cane sugar is my drink. Just about time for the Braves-Cardinals game.

    Took my time enjoying that Stonehaven, and am now smoking HU Old Fredder’s Broken Flake in a smooth straight early 1960s Lane era 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. This pipe was formerly owned by actor William Conrad. Braves have had a long, slow top of the 6th inning, but have scored five runs in this half hour. Ice tea and bergs is my drink.

    A couple minutes away from smoking C&D Bluegrass in a medium bend raw sienna toned early Radice sandblast egg with bamboo carving on the shank and a black acrylic stem. Cards just scored five runs and are one run away from tying the game. This is what happens when you put Peter Moylan in to pitch.

    Well, smoking nothing. Temp is 92 deg, which I have never seen before here, and it's too damn hot to do anything. I feel like a Southern porch dog -- I just want to lie under the porch and pant.
