    Enjoyed a wonderful Greek pasta dinner with chocolate chip mint ice cream for dessert. Now smoking year 2013 Capstan Blue in a 2014 Savinelli Gaius smooth brown slight bend black acrylic stem and ferrule 320KS author. Lots of hitting going on in the Pirates-Braves game.

    Enjoyed a tasty golden delicious apple, and am now having my last smoke of the day: 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. Braves and Pirates are in the 11th inning.

    I seldom start my smoking day with an English blend, but I had to try this one now: 1960s W.F. Monroe Cigar Co. Conway’s Private Blend Pipe Mixture in a black pebble finish straight 2003 Cavicchi C. Fatto A Mano lovat with a black acrylic saddle stem. Simply Apple is my drink. Up early again to take care of pending business.

    I'm back with this Haddo's Delight in a Sav 122 smooth slightly bent pot. I guess I'm tasting a little Virginia. It's hard to experience the Perique, beyond believing the tin that it's there. After this, it's back to some burley therapy. I might have to add some Five Brothers to this Haddo's.

    I just smoked about half a small bowl of "Calamity" in one of the old cobs I won at auction during my first year of pipe smoking. "Calamity" is a hodgepodge of 3 rather distinctive blends or varietals. Pennhooker Green, Picayune, and ole '97 latakia. (very little of the last one) I have about 2 ozs. of this particular concoction.
