The wife and I are driving down to Florida for a bit of a getaway (well...we actually got in earlier this afternoon). On the drive from Cleveland down to sunny (or stormy, as it were) Florida, I've had a few thoughts. Nothing earth shattering, but she's napping and I'm bored, so I thought I'd kill some time here:
1. I've driven a lot of places and seen a lot of the country. I still think I-77 through southeast Ohio and northern West Virginia just before, at, and just after dawn is one of the most beautiful drives.
2. I've made this drive about 8 times in my life...all but one of them since I first picked up a pipe, and at least five since I've been regularly placing online tobacco orders. Somehow, I've just now managed to put together the fact that the JR outlets/stores in Statesville, NC, (including, wait for it, JR Cigars) is, in fact, one of the B&M locations owned by JR Cigars. It was one of those "THIS IS FANTASTIC...and I'm a flippin' IDIOT" kind of moments.
3. The new MM Country Gentleman (VaPer) blend is REALLY growing on me. I plowed through bowl after bowl of it on the way down, and it keeps getting better and better.
4. What is a car with a Hawaii license plate doing just south of Savannah, GA?
That's enough for now...I think I'm due for a nap, myself.
