About a third of a bowl left of year 2012 Rolando’s Own in a smooth straight early ‘60s Lane era “William Conrad” 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 saddle stem. Been cleaning a couple of estate pipes, and the ones I smoked last night and today as I watched the ball game.

Are the mini-cobs the 3 inch ones (say for toddler sized snowmen)?

A chain tobacco shop in Michigan (Wild Bill's) has these really small cobs and billiards for like $3 as a novelty, but they smoke. Just too much of a nose warmer for my taste but I'll pick one up next year for a snowman.
3 1/2 inches, to be precise (that's what she said...). At $2 a pop, there was no reason not to get 'em. That CBG would've fatally ghosted any briar beyond recognition.

Goodness gracious, what an experience! I smell like reek of grape jolly rancher odor now. Wife is perturbed, to say the least. I had to offset the GIgantic Purple Entity (sounds like the name of an 80s porno) by drinking a cup of coffee and smoking a bowl of P&C Match Hickory--the grape odor seems to be fading now. A shower will probably finish the job.

This happened to me once before, about a year ago, after a bowl of CAO Eileen's Dream. Yowza. Oh well, I knew what I was getting into! I just had to try it once. The Match Hickory with the coffee was quite lovely though, and these MM mini-cobs are great for quick smokes.

Why do I suddenly have the urge to listen to Moby Grape now? ?

Relaxing after a wonderful salad, chicken legs and sugar snap peas dinner with strawberries for dessert. I'm a third of the way through this bowl of year 2013 Capstan Blue in a smooth dark brown post-WWII Comoy’s Grand Slam 340 patent billiard with a tapered black vulcanite stem. Ice water and bergs is my drink. Watching the Phillies-Mets game.
