Well this second surgery I just had (friday) went so much better than the first. Aside from some general soreness I feel pretty darned good. Am parking my butt on the couch to watch golf all day and starting off with the Euro Stanwell Royal Guard 252 filled with a Bluegrass Melody/BPC mix. Cool

Hey PD -

Hope the shoulder's coming around after the first surgery and that this one works out well for you. I noticed the BPC - glad I'm among those who enjoy Peretti's blends. I drop by there when up in Boston - about an hour north of me.

Given the inspiration, I think I'll fire up some 333 in a Pete Killarney 106.

Puff,
What did you have corrected? I'm having shoulder issues as well but surgery is something I haven't contemplated.

Squadron Leader (I love this stuff) in a bent brandy smooth Ruthenberg. Too lazy to get up and brew some coffee or tea. Forcing myself to lay around the house today (only day off this week).

I had shoulder surgery in december to repair a torn labrum and rotator cuff and again this past friday to remove scar tissue (that resulted from the first surgery) and to manipulate the partially frozen shoulder (i.e. force it to move under anesthesia). Wasn't an elective surgery, was one of those 'Had no choice' operations.

Mine is some kind of pre-existing thing. I will try orthroscopic first. I don't think I have anything torn, but I know something is wrong with my rotator cuff. I discuss it more with my doctor on my next visit. Thanks for the info. Glad you're feeling good, bud. Obviously mine is small potatos in comparison.

Good luck with the shoulder operation. Getting ready to lite a bowl of Exhausted Rooster in a Danish made Ben Wade. Its a great smoker especially with va's which is about alll I smoke. For some reason I can't taste latakia because of the meds I have to take, I sure miss it but it leaves a total blank spot when I try it. IMHO it is shame because I use to smoke quite a bit of it Sad

After some T-bones on the grill with shrimp scampi with a nice Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon I enjoyed some GLP Westminster in my monster Ben Wade freehand. I bought ten 2 oz cans about 10-months ago (gave 2 away to a couple of friends to try). Still a little wet, but only had to relight 4-5 times. Tamped often. It was a good smoke on the back deck.

I had Sirloins steaks for lunch, expecting a few people, but they didn't make it. So I had steak sandwiches for dinner. Not puffing on som Skandinavik in a Ruthenberg Canadian, sipping a GUINESS.

Hello,
I normally don't get to smoke at work, but I was sent on an errand to fetch a bottle of water for the staff.

Filled up a cob with Tinderbox's Sherlock's Choice and took my time driving to and fro.

Life is good, my friends!

How do non-smokers enjoy their breaks? Chew gum?

Loading a bowl of Walnut in a Perry Mountain Laurel Poker. I don't know why Mountain Laurel hasn't caught on more as a regular choice for pipes.

If I may- I believe Sherlocks choice is Lane HGL....Or so I have heard. It's a good blend......
I too am a great fan of ACD and all things Holmesian.....It always struck me that C&D Guilford Courthouse would have been a favortie. Not in the name, but in the Virginia Oriental mixture. Yale mix pressed is a very very close clone of the Craven mixture which would have been right for the time...Just my .02....
Smoking for Captain Bob in a Peterson Meer. First bowl of this and frankly it's fascinating in it's oddness. Much like Revvelation or Epiphany...Perhaps a bit less latakia....With a Grape topnote!!! Crazy- But VERY tasty..... pirat

I just finished off a bowl of maltese falcon, the blend that ushered me into the world of english tobacco, in a stanwell golden danish 186. It was like running into an old friend I hadn't seen in some time and having a nice long chat. I forgot how much I like this blend!

I bought several Tinderbox blends to try out. I didn't like any of them. this one is close to palatable. The other forum claimed it was a copy of Stockebye's Proper English, but i can assure you, my friend, this is no Proper English which I buy pounds at a time.

What I do with blends I don't like is throw them in the car because when I'm desperate A tobacco is better than NO tobacco; it seems to have improved by sitting in the car. Actually I like it better in a cob than in briar.

I would skip this blend.

I've been breaking in a pair of B5 Petersons lately, a Killarney p-lip and a Rosslare fishtail. Just now, it's Marlin flake in the Rosslare.
