A quarter of the way through this bowl of year 2014 Dan Tobacco Hamborger Veermaster in a smooth straight brown 1950 Dunhill 48 bulldog group 4 root briar with a black vulcanite fish tail saddle stem. Time to zoom with my friends.
It's a real Indian summer day here in Sydney, so I decided to forgo the cognac I picked out and have a G&T instead. Tanqueray Malacca gin (I grew up in Malaysia, where my hometown was just over an hours drive from Malacca) with a pink grapefruit tonic water, lemon slice.
Smoking a couple of well-rubbed out Former's Straight Grain flakes in an early S Bang ("Copenhagen") rusticated tulip with saddle stem.
Just passing the third of a bowl mark of year 2012 Rolando’s Own in a smooth straight early ‘60s Lane era “William Conrad” Charatan Executive Extra Large stretch apple with diagonal channel cuts on the lower right and left of the bowl along with a black vulcanite double comfort saddle stem.
A quarter of the way through this bowl of D&R Penhooker in a straight brown sandblasted post-WWII family era Sasieni “Canadian” London Made with a sterling silver band with a tapered black vulcanite twin bore stem. Ice water and bergs is my drink. Going to work in a couple of minutes.
I had a late afternoon bowl of Edward G. Robinson's Pipe Blend in my Chamersburg Morta pipe, a poker with a bamboo shank. Some Honey Jack in a tall tumbler with a fistful of bergs, and Bundaberg Ginger Beer was my beverage.
