Kids are up now raisin kane, contemplating my next smoke. Kinda nice outside already, a bit warmer here than what Paul is seeing. ... Cigar or pipe.... Suspect Laughing Decisions, decisions!

Sounds like you and I are in the same boat Winslow No I'm trying to time my smoking with my meds so I can actually relax and enjoy my pipe. Don't let anyone tell you that arthroscopic surgery is a piece of cake - it hurts like a summbitch!! There is absolutely no position that you can put a sewn-up shoulder in that relieves the pain Mad

This afternoon, a fine Torano 1916 Cameroon torpedo with a side of oxycodon, coffee chaser cheers

Astley's 109 in a Viprati billiard



It's the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr., born in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1929. He was a minister in Montgomery, Alabama, 26 years old, when he was chosen to lead a boycott of segregated buses. He didn't set out to become civil rights activist, and he said later that if he'd known what the job would entail, he might have turned it down. He wasn't even sure he wanted to become a preacher. As a teenager, he thought that the way people shouted and made noise in his Baptist church was embarrassing.

But during the bus boycott, during which he was assaulted and arrested and his house was bombed, he experienced what he described as a religious conversion. He realized that the civil rights movement was greater than King himself, greater than his own doubts, and that he had to act like a charismatic figurehead, even if he didn't feel like one. He said: "As I became involved, and as people began to derive inspiration from their involvement, I realized that the choice leaves your own hands. The people expect you to give them leadership."

Calvin E. Johnson, Jr. wrote:
Monday, January 19, 2009, is the 202nd birthday of Robert E. Lee, whose memory is still dear in the hearts of many.

Dwight D. Eisenhower proudly displayed a portrait of Lee in his presidential office.

Robert E. Lee, a man whose military tactics have been studied worldwide, was an American soldier, Educator, Christian gentlemen, husband and father. Lee said quote, 'All the South has ever desired was that the Union , as established by our forefathers, should be preserved, and that the government, as originally organized, should be administered in purity and truth.'

He was born on Jan. 19, 1807, at ' Stratford ' in Westmoreland County, Virginia. The winter was cold and the fireplaces were little help for Robert's mother, Ann Hill (Carter) Lee, who suffered from a severe cold.
Ann Lee named her son 'Robert Edward' after two of her brothers.
Robert E. Lee undoubtedly acquired his love of country from those who lived during the American Revolution. His Father, 'Light Horse' Harry was a hero of the revolution and served three terms as governor of Virginia and as a member of the United States House of Representatives. Two members of his family also signed the Declaration of Independence.
Lee was educated at the schools of Alexandria, Va., and he received an appointment to West Point Military Academy in 1825. He graduated in 1829, second in his class and without a single demerit.

While serving as 2nd Lieutenant of Engineers at Fort Monroe, Va., Lee wed Mary Ann Randolph Custis. Robert and Mary had grown up together, Mary was the daughter of George Washington Parke Custis, the Grandson of Martha Washington and adopted son of George Washington.
Mary was an only child; therefore, she inherited Arlington House, across the Potomac River from Washington , D.C., where she and Robert E. Lee raised seven children, three boys and four girls.
Army promotions were slow. In 1836, Lee was appointed to first Lieutenant. In 1838, with the rank of Captain, Robert E. Lee fought in the War with Mexico and was wounded at the Battle of Chapultepec.
Lee was appointed Superintendent of West Point in 1852 and is considered one of the best superintendents in that institution's history.
President to-be Abraham Lincoln offered command of the Union army to Lee in 1861, but he refused. He said, 'I cannot raise my hand against my birthplace, my home, my children.'

Lee was a man of honor, proud of his name and heritage. After the War Between the States, he was offered $50,000 for the use of his name. His reply was: 'Sirs, my name is the heritage of my parents. It is all I have and it is not for sale.' His refusal came at a time when he had nothing.

On this his 202nd birthday let us ponder the words he wrote to Annette Carter in 1868: 'I grieve for posterity, for American Principles and American liberty.'

I just received today two tins of Maltese Falcon I had ordered from Smokingpipes.com. I'm really looking forward to giving it a try.

Well I'm up late today, sleeping in til all hours, not getting up til 6 am Laughing What a bum!

Was at the thursday evening meeting of the Sacramento Pipe Collectors Assembly last night, didn't get home til about 11 pm. That's really late for me, I like to go to bed about 8:30 Sleep We had a great meeting though, big turnout and lots of good conversation among friends. Robert Vacher of Laughing Moon pipes joined us which was a real nice treat. The guy is a most interesting fellow, a very personable man and a damned good pipe maker. He's going to be at the Sparks, Nevada show in early March [ http://www.smokinnsparks.com/ ] if you'd like to meet him and see some of his work. I was impressed and am definitely going to be acquiring one of his pipes. As several other North American carvers of recent times have done, Robert is taking his engineering and design pretty seriously and is doing some impressive work. Definitely on the same level as Howell and Rad, and having recently rediscovered a desire to 'Create' stylistic pipes, he's producing some tasty looking and wonderfully engineered briars. Keep an eye out for this guy gents!

Also, if you fellows have the opportunity to participate in a pipe club in your area I just cannot recommend it highly enough. It's a fantastic opportunity to fellowship with like minded folks, learn a lot about pipes and pipesmokers, and it's simply a wonderful way to share in this odd little 'Off the beaten path' hobby of ours.

This morning, Astley's 109 in an Upshall P rhodesian Cool
