    Smoking a bowl of Carter Hall in a new estate meer I received today. It seems that there is a ghost in this pipe. Luckily I’m also smoking a bowl of St James Flake in a Peterson Tankard.

    Inauspicious start to June, the power is still out.
    My HU Haymaker did NOT dry out well over night. Nevertheless it's been stuffed into the Amber Root Zulu.

    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

    Smoking HH ODF in a Paul's Cayuga oom Paul. For some reason, this pipe doesn't smoke ODF well. The flavor is very muted; curious for a tobacco that has such a deep flavor in all other pipes. Yet it smokes Balkan blends well.

    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. A can of the very delicious Hansen's Mandarin Line soda made with pure cane sugar is my drink.

    Almost half through this bowl of MacBaren Mystery Blend in a 1982 smooth straight Dunhill Root Briar 31051 Dublin with a black vulcanite stem. It's one of the upcoming new MacBaren blends, and no, I can't say what it is. I'm liking it though.
