Enjoyed a tall stack of cinnamon raisin French toast with a golden delicious apple and unsalted peanuts on the side.

Earlier, I smoked a bowl of year 2020 Watch City Rouxgaroux in a smooth medium bend 2021 Peterson POTY Natural 4AB No. 6/500 military mount with a silver cap and a tapered black vulcanite AB stem.

Then, I smoked a bowl of year 2016 Sutliff 507-C Slices in a black sandblast PSB medium bend 2021 Peterson POTY 4AB No. 228/500 military mount with a silver cap and a tapered black vulcanite AB stem.

Followed that up by smoking a bowl of year 2013 Esoterica Tilbury in a 2002 smooth Rinaldo Silver Line 3 EGER 05 paneled horn with a silver band and a black acrylic stem.

Currently, I have passed the half way mark on this bowl of Peretti Royal in a black sandblasted medium bend 2013 Mark Tinsky Coral 5 cherrywood with a smooth dark brown shank and bottom with a tapered black briar accented acrylic stem. Gold Star mmmMidnight, neat, is my drink.

Enjoyed a double meat twelve inch Italian Stallion sub, and am nearing the last third of this bowl of Seattle Pipe Club Down Yonder in a straight black 1963 Dunhill LB Shell 4S billiard with a tapered black vulcanite stem. The release date for this stoved straight Brazilian Va. crumble cake blend is August 22. Ice water and bergs is my drink.

Deception Pass Plug? I was unaware of this product’s existence until just now. Did you press the plug yourself or did Sutliff make a plugged version? I love Deception Pass and would jump at the opportunity to try the plug version.
When I was at the Sutliff plant a couple of years ago, they had bags of DP plugs, Match Victorian plugs, and a couple of straight Va. plugs in a dump carrier. Rather than throw them away (I have absolutely no idea why they rejected most of them), they gave them to me. I was very lucky. Right place at the right time.

I came to realize that one of them was a rejected Hogshead prototype when I got a tin of Hogshead to review. The differences were not that great, but just enough that I noticed.

The plugs are old style English dense, and wonderful. I can understand rejecting the Hogshead prototype because, as good as it is, it's not quite as good as what they are selling. But, I enjoy smoking it and the others.

Amazing. Thanks for clueing me in. Right place, right time for sure. You’re a lucky dog…that loves feral cats! Thanks again, Jim.
