Did some snacking and am now smoking Esoterica Dunbar in a smooth straight late ‘50s, early 1960s Lane era Charatan Selected 43 Dublin with a black vulcanite double comfort saddle stem. This pipe was formerly owned by actor William Conrad. Phone chatting about tobacco.
A third of the way through this bowl of Sutliff Burley Delight #212 in a 1984 Stanwell Antique 124 egg with a smooth brown front and a black sandblasted back with a dark gold ferrule and black vulcanite stem in the military mount style. Watching Rhapsody in Blue starring Robert Alda, Oscar Levant, and the very pretty Joan Leslie.
Enjoying tobacco tasting bliss out on the porch while wearing a light jacket (mostly to hold stuff in its pockets) and using my OG MM Legend with a Peterson Barrel's "P" lip stem and a melange of D*R tobaccos, including some Penhooker Green, Picayune, Sigarro, 3 Sails, and Ramback. It works! (is there some TwoTimer in there too? could be.)
Enjoyed a tasty golden delicious apple, and am part way through this bowl of early 1970s MacBaren Burley London Blend in a smooth medium bend 2002 Peterson Sherlock Holmes Series Milverton with a sterling silver band and a black vulcanite p-lip stem.
Part way through my last smoke of the day, which is Edgeworth Ready Rubbed Match in a 2019 black rusticated Peterson 312 full bend billiard with a military mount and a nickel band with a cumberland 4AB stem and a N.A.P. bit. Time to feed Suzy and Molly, and Fluffy, who I know is outside waiting on me.
First bowl of the day is some 2011 Mcclelland's Old Dog, in the 1997 Nording Goose sandblast. Next is a good cigar, to celebrate the fact that this time tomorrow I'll be in Nicaragua at the AJ Fernandez Estate
Loud, noisy truck going down the street woke me up, and I figure why waste precious smoking time, so I've a third of a bowl left of Edward G. Robinson's Pipe Blend in a 2014 Basil Meadows smooth slight bend squashed tomato with an aluminum band and a black pearl acrylic stem in the military mount style. Then, I'll try sleep again on this rainy day.
