Close to finishing the last of my stash of the very dry year 2010 Villager Virginia No.444 in a smooth straight late 1970s Charatan Special 4148DC Reg. No. 203573 pot with a black double comfort vulcanite stem. Got my first set of walks in, and will replace this blend with D&R Three Sails as a walking smoke.

Sorry to keep posting about Elizabethan, but I went back and smoked some Dunhill from 2012 and I think I found the perfect pipe for it. A full bent vintage Savinelli De Luxe. This pipe gave the blend a heavier mouthfeel and a deeper Virginia flavor. The other pipes I smoked it in made the blend taste light and wispy. It’s certainly growing on me.
Enjoyed a tasty lunch, and am now smoking year 2013 Stonehaven in a straight sandblasted pre-transition Barling Exel 249 Fossil T.V.F. black billiard with a silver banded military mount and a black ebonite tapered stem. Ice water and bergs is my drink.
About a quarter of a bowl left of Smoker’s Pride Mellow Taste in the very first pipe I ever bought ($2.49) in 1974; a smooth three quarter bend Dr. Grabow Omega military mount with a nickel band and a black vulcanite stem with a p-lip. Just finished another set of walks, and a tasty peach, too.
Now smoking Ken Byron Ventures Van Gogh in a 1980s White Pipe straight lattice apple meerschaum with an acrylic yellow cream colored saddle stem. Phone chatting with the fella who gifted me the pipe. Ice water and bergs is drink.
Just past the half way mark on this bowl of Wilke No. 515 in a 1998 smooth straight Butz-Choquin Bistro 1501 pot with a black vulcanite saddle stem. Heat and humidity won't stop me from my appointed smokes! Just finished all my walking reps for the day.
