    Part way through this bowl of year 2002 Wessex Sovereign Curly Cut 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. Work is done for the day, and I'm relaxing now.

    Rainy morning in the Derby City. Having Peacehaven/Wessex Classic in the Feddy Becker 4♧ dublin.

    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

    Still on the Billy Budd in the Thompson house pipe from yesterday. Lots of intermittent chores and doings. Packed for next, a bowl from my "best of the rest" bowl, with the last of Frog Morton Cellar along with three or four other blends, very dry but likely still mighty good, in a Ben Wade blond straight billiard clencher form my local independent pipe shop.

    Made pizza from scratch for m'lady and myself, and am half way through this bowl of Sam Gawith Medium Virginia Flake in a 2014 Savinelli Gaius smooth brown slight bend black acrylic stem and ferrule 320KS author. Suzy and Molly just stood there and watched us eat. I don't think they were happy we didn't share the pizza with them. Then again, I don't eat their tuna, either, so nyahhhh!!!! Watching the Red Sox-Yankees game.

    I am smoking my second pipe of the day. This one is actually a DGT of a bowl of Tasty Kake in my '54 Shellbriar, a bowl I smoked just before retiring yesterday and only smoked about 1/2way.

    After some tasty (vegetable) Burgers with Halloumi cheese and those dried onions (from Hot dogs f.e) I enjoyed a bowlful of 3Ps in my Cob and am now following it with a nice bowl of Bold Kentucky (in another cob) to round off the evening.

    Everytime I smoke BK I remember why I love it so much! Unreached when it comes to dark fired Kentucky blends imho.

    Have a nice evening people

    Just finished smoking Peter Heinrichs Curly Block in a straight black sandblasted 1968 Dunhill Shell bulldog with a black vulcanite stem. Time for dinner!

    Happy Brown Bogie here, with a 50/50 Dark Burley/Bright Virginia mix as kindling. In some kind of a briar.

    Relaxing after a wonderful baby back ribs and baked beans dinner with a bowl of Planta Anno MMX (After Dinner Mixture) in a 2002 IMP smooth full bend egg shaped meer with a black acrylic stem. Figured, well, if it's an after dinner smoke, it was due to burn! Watching the Pirates-Reds game.
