    Surviving Hurricane Ida And The Aftermath

    I moved to lower Terrebonne Parish in Louisiana after my retirement. I chose the location because of the excellent salt marsh fishing and deep sea fishing.

    Game Time Smoke

    Looking forward to tonight's Bengals vs Browns game. Not that I'm a fan of either team, it's just that I'm a huge fan of QB Joe Burreaux.

    Pipe Smoking and Football

    I was just thinking about how much I enjoyed a bowl of Escudo in the first half and Best Brown for the second half of the College Football Championship game Monday Night. Thinking about what to smoke for Sunday's NFL Conference Champ Games. Maybe start with Kajun Kake and later sip into some...

    Just joined to forum. I smoke mostly aged Virginia and Perique/Virginia blends. Been smoking for several decades. Mixure 965 is OK. Much prefer Escudo!
