    I'm working and starting off June with a bowl of D&R VIP in a 2004 smooth long shank Canadian Trever Talbot Ligne Bretagne Faite en Bretagne 4/3 with a black vulcanite stem. Listening to the Braves-Angels game.

    Nowhere in the world will such a brotherly feeling of confidence be experienced as amongst those who sit together smoking their pipes

    I think I smoked so much Royal Yacht back in February that I time warped to June.

    For today, it's Irish Oak mixed with Dark Burley for Va/Bur/Per tasty goodness...

    Half way through this bowl of Granger in the third pipe I ever bought ($1.95), a 1974 smooth straight French briar Hadley Apple with a black vulcanite stem. A bottle of 7-Up is my drink. Looking forward to seeing an old friend of mine this afternoon. Haven't seen him in twenty-five years. It'll be a good reunion.

    Enjoyed the reunion with my old friend, autographed some books I wrote and some I drew, and as he liked the smell of Edward G. Robinson's Pipe Blend, I smoked a couple bowls to keep him happy. I was happy, too!

    A tasty day. I bought some cherry blends to shut the women at camp up. haha Something called Black Cherry, another called New Cherry and Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. - Top Black Cherry which was my favourite- If I had to pick one. Honestly, I am not huge on strong aromatics, but I think a pipe or two a week of this stuff could be a nice change.

    All smoked through my MM cobs.
