    About a third of a bowl left of Douwe Egberts House Blend Aromatic in a 1975 medium bend sandblasted looking, smooth on the sides yellow Pioneer meer with a black ferrule and vulcanite stem in the military mount style.

    MM Country Gentleman in my Crown Bent Billiard. I'm getting more bread notes this time around, and it pairs nicely with some cold brewed hibiscus and coconut tea.

    Now smoking Edgeworth Ready Rubbed Match in a very much appreciated 1979 brown, slight bend grain etched flat front Stanwell Rego 969-48 (09) with a black vulcanite stem. Molly wants some play time, and she'll get it when I finish posting my smoke. I'm sure she's amused about being in second place.

    Just tried smoking a bowl of Warridor Plug in a 7" meerschaum 'cutty' but I had to abandon the exercise due to this miserable upper respiratory tract infection doing the rounds that I have been battling since Tuesday. I've seen the quacks, filled the prescription and taken the medication and I am still coughing like a consumptive. I think I'll switch it up to beer and try and drown this bug the old fashioned way!!

    As an after thought before anyone asks 'Warridor' is a mixture of Warrior and Condor Plug which I have grown rather fond of during my sojourn in Florida avoiding the cold northern winter months!

    Edward G. Robinson blend in a Kaywoodie Flame Grain. First time trying this blend, and it's up my alley. Mild and pleasant, with a classic old-school American character. For me, a little latakia goes a long way, and this is just right.

    Did a little snacking and am now smoking Vauen No.14 Virginia Flake in a black sand blasted straight 1998 XXX Ashton lovat with a black acrylic saddle stem. I may finish the day with this smoke.

    After enjoying a 1/2 batch (small skillet's worth) slice of corn bread I made from 'scratch', and some coffee, I'm heading out with my Yelo-Bole Lovat briar with some Windsail/perique. I sanded the laqueur off and finished it out with the 10 or so micro pad succession and now it's a warm natural nut brown finish that feels much more pleasant in hand.
    My son gifted me the pipe. He doesn't smoke at all.
