    GLP's Montgomery in a lattice billiard by Tekin, with coffee, watching the Cubs and Marlins.

    I find myself sitting idly on the line dividing past and future,
    as if I could kill time without injuring eternity. -- Thoreau

    Relaxing after a giant plate of meat loaf, mashed potatoes and corn, and am a third of the way through this bowl of year 2014 Edward G. Robinson's Pipe Blend in a 1982 black sandblasted paneled slight bend Savinelli flat bottom sitter with a black vulcanite saddle stem. Strawberry shortcake is in my near future!

    I'm back on the Rattray's Black Mallory train. This time in a Moonshine Cannonball. Been smoking this blend frequently as of late.

    D&R mix: 3 Sails, TwoTimer, Picayune, in my avatar pipe, a 1954 saddle stemmed Dunhill bent Shellbriar, sitting on the screened porch facing east as the sun is just beginning to peak over the treetops. For now, this environment is comfortable, but by mid a.m. it will be approaching 85 degrees and humid, and sun baked.
    I'll have to wait till evening to use this space and since I've quit smoking inside, I'll be relegated to lunting in the shade of the oaks along the drive out front on the west side till then.
    I get more exercise as a result of my no smoking policy (indoor)
