    HH McBaren Vintage Syrian

    I'm sorry to hear that RSteve. This virus can be tough to shake.

    HH McBaren Vintage Syrian

    I'd be interested. Those are great prices. I kind of wish I bought more at JR, that's for sure. I don't know if four pounds will be enough. If you open things up to a multi-purchase, five tins and a pound would carry me through the decade, and that's with me exercising restraint! It's got a...

    Secret Santa 2019 - BOB's Twelfth

    Don't say "was" just yet. I stopped getting Grape chemtrail updates to my phone at around 1:11 p.m. yesterday afternoon . . .

    Secret Santa 2019 - BOB's Twelfth

    Holy cow. A partridge AND a pear tree?!? That's pretty amazing. Even more amazing is that I think that Elizabethan Mixture tin is from the actual Elizabethan era. WTG, Santa!

    Secret Santa 2019 - BOB's Twelfth

    I left work today to find my car iced over and my tire pressure gauge going haywire. To top it off, I didn't have an ice scraper. What I should have done was to copy Santa. He made it through all of snow today to drop off a jim dandy of a package! Unobtanium in the form of McClelland Red and...

    Indeed. Nice haul!

    Secret Santa 2019 - BOB's Twelfth

    It's been unseasonably warm these past couple of weeks so I gave the reindeer one last massive carb load before taking off to parts east named what most people associate with parts south. The first radar report was just emailed to my phone. I do believe that trail is made up of Captain Black...

    Secret Santa 2019 - BOB's Twelfth

    I need to get to WalMart for a card (and maybe some cinnamon pine cones to offset the grapetastrophe that is in this box--no one told me that Capt. Black Grape ain't no mild vintage!) and then I'll send a quick text to Prancer for pickup. I tried to fill it with so much stuff that Santa would...

    Secret Santa 2019 - BOB's Twelfth

    I was going to send mine today, but since the thread has turned me onto the wonders of Capt. Black, I think I'll Grape a tin of Cairo before sending it out. I'll want those flavors to marry pretty well beforehand so that the soft and subtle orientals are purpled into tobacco glory.

    Secret Santa 2019 - BOB's Twelfth

    Had to do a little research here and there, had to learn a thing or two, even had to sample a tobacco or two to try and figure out why this and not that. Like STC's Wedding Guest, I woke up this morn older and wiser. I also woke up needing a bigger box! Thanks for letting this BoBSS first-timer...

    How was your weather today?

    Nice. My daughter moved to Phoenix in July. Her housewarming guest was a scorpion, but things have gotten better. Because it was Veteran's Day, the city didn't do anything about the roads. It's going to be an ice rink the morning until they put down some &#$*&^$-ing salt. I have a new dog (7...

    How was your weather today?

    7" of snow expected today. Far cry from the forecast of 1"-3". I'd like to be eased into this nonsense, not surprised into it. 7° in a couple of days. This entire season has caught me off guard.

    It's in stock now. What is the blend like?

    What’s your favorite SNL skit?

    Alec Baldwin, soap opera actor extraordinaire. It was an skit called Soap Opera Digest from 1993. He was a doctor who mispronounced every single word.

    It never ends

    A lot of times, my wife will give the kids money out of the side window when I've got the front door under a tight watch. I sent this to my daughter (sophomore in college) the other day, telling her it's my parenting style:

    Bob Dylan

    LOL I grew up paying $8 or $10 to see the Grateful Dead or The Moody Blues. $88 is up there for me. Hell, I still remember a Mad Magazine cartoon from the 70s where someone called the police because $1/gallon was akin to a stick up! I live in a college town where most things are next to free...

    Bob Dylan

    I saw him a couple of nights ago. Color me impressed! Great voice, great energy, fantastic re-arrangements. Some songs don't need new arrangements (Highway 61 Revisited), but Ain't Dark Yet really benefitted from one. I wasn't as old as most of the audience (many had become mathematicians and...

    Looking for Royal Yacht

    Since I've been here, I've seen Blackhorse give away more tobacco than I own, and good, HTF stuff at that. Are you the same Blackhorse who was on Herfer's Paradise back in the day, "selling" cigars? I put selling in quotation marks because you always seemed to give away twice more than you sold...

    Bionic Eyes for Blackhorse

    What's amazing in our time is that they can put a new lens in as they take out the cataract. If you wear glasses now, you won't after it's done.
