Now smoking Edgeworth Ready Rubbed Match in a very much appreciated 1979 brown, slight bend grain etched flat front Stanwell Rego 969-48 (09) with a black vulcanite saddle stem. Community Coffee, neat, is my drink.
Having some Cornell and Diehl SP 20th anniversary XX Flake in a James Upshall Tilshead billiard. The heat has finally broken a bit in Arizona and this is the most comfortable bowl I've smoked in over a month!
Half way through this bowl of Ken Byron Ventures Yoshimi's Vizmir Prototype in a medium bend smooth paneled 2017 Celebi Turkish Meerschaum with a gold and black swirl acrylic tapered stem. This will finish my smoking day.
Last nite I had a bowl of some 80's Drucquer's States Blend. Kind of a unique taste. Couldn't find anything about it other than it was made of some Maryland and Carolina Bright Virginia and some burly.
Good Morning! It's officially September and I can safely say that due to all the disasters of 2020 I cannot name anything particularly of note for this year unless you count not spending any money as an achievement! The only thing about 2020 is that my tobacco consumption seems to have grown, maybe thats what keeps this Bat virus at arms length so far! Today I thought I would take my mid to late 19th century meerschaum 'cutty' out for a ride. It has a silver band, hall marked Birmingham with a lovely Baltic amber mouth piece. The case needs seeing too and I will be sending that off to my case repair man this week. He restores pianos so somehow this uniquely qualifies him to restore 19th century pipe cases. My tobacco for the morning is Black Irish X and CCP mixture which really seems to work, takes the edge off the twist and produces a room note that does not smell like a major party political convention. Enjoy September 1st!
