Welcome to a cold and wet December day with snow forecast for us denizens of the metropolis otherwise known as NYC. I am sitting in my office wondering what on earth possessed me to leave the relative warmth of Tampa, Florida! Anyway as Jim Inks would say I am listing this one early. I am just about to smoke a bowl of Coniston CP in an 1860s meerschaum 'cutty' which lives in a hand made box wood case probably made by a 19th century cabinet maker. The hinges are most unusual and the wood is polished to a very high standard.
Enjoyed a tasty lunch and a nap, and am now smoking Sutliff Walnut Match in an early smooth Radice Tiger Eye G medium bend bulldog with a bamboo-style carving on the shank with a two dot black acrylic stem.
Now smoking Wilke Lizzie Blood Virginia in a straight 1960s Lane era Charatan black with burgundy undertone sandblasted billiard 420 with a black vulcanite tapered stem. Working and listening to The Beatles White Album 50th Anniversary.
