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 Black, a tin of FVF that's older than most of my children, some CT-wrapped cigars (that Casa Torano tubo beckons as I type this; in my old age, I love mild cigars more and more and more), some other awesome blends and even a couple of O. Henry Gift of the Magi tins. I was just as surprised to see Santa sacrifice a tin of Temple Bar as much as I was surprised to see Quiet Nights in there--I could have sworn that Santa liked latakia as much as I like aromatics! And if I had a dollar for every time I've had HH Acadian Perique in my cart and then dumped it, I'd be a rich man. Now it's just a scrum between me and my kids for the almond-filled Hershey kisses.

Thanks Santa!

Just curious if you’ve smoked that clay pipe yet? If so what your impressions of it? I have thought about trying one foe years but never pulled the trigger on one.

Apparently, I've been better than I thought.  Very Happy  Santa dropped a fantastic package on the porch today. Came with a handwritten card and a nice selection of tobaccos, as well as some tasty treats.  Thank you Santa.

Tobacco:
Ken Byron - Smooth Criminal
Ken Byron - Holiday Road
Esoterica - Dunbar
C&D - Chenet's Cake
H&H - Marble Cake

Food:
Tupelo honey
Lucky Goat Coffee
Sanders Peppermint Patties
Habanero Hot Sauce

I'm looking forward to having some of the coffee this weekend. The wife has already claimed the Peppermint patties and I think she may have already finished them off. For this evening, I'm planning on breaking into the Holiday Road it sounds delicious.

Darn you must have good too this year. Great blends and great food. Tupelo honey not supposed to crystallize if I remember correctly and a great song too from one of favorite artists

I have! Always wanted to try a clay and it is a great smoker! Flavors really pop in the clay. I would consider buying clay pipes for Virginia's. It was sooooo good. Smoked HU Aus de Krater No. 3 in it.

After extensive holiday complications, this jolly old elf finally got his sleigh airborne...and discovered somebody snuck down my chimney on the sly! On the clock but looking forward to seeing what Saint Nick delivered later tonight. Happy holidays, all!

We I got home about 15 minutes ago and seen a package on my front porch. I took the dog out to do his thing then came in to check out the box. Low and behold I must have been a good boy and have the best Santa ever. He gifted me with a awesome surprise.

Looks like the power of suggestion is not lost on Santa.  Enjoy that CB Grape.  You should chase it down with some Manischewitz wine since you're going big...

Never seen or heard of that Concord grape wine. I bet it’s some sweet stuff. I’m more of a red wine guy myself.

Whoa!!! Santa showed up and left a present on my doorstep...

Secret Santa 2019 - BOB's Twelfth   - Page 6 Giant_11

I had to use a plasma cutter just to make my way into it.

Well, no new toy or shiny bicycle for this boy.  No!  In fact Santa went in to his archives of Christmas past and dug out some treasures indeed, many of which were covered in years off dust and cobwebs.  Some of these will have to be sent to the lab for carbon dating to determine their actual age.  Regardless, what a generous whopper of a gift from Santa!  I'm not certain I'm worthy, but still I'm deeply appreciative.

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.

Woohoo! Way to go Santa's! Some fine selections.


I will try very hard to see where we are tomorrow. I have been in a daze with this cold. But improving every day! If you are still waiting for a package, take a good look around the porch.

And I know some of y'all are grading term papers. So posting pics can be a low priority.

Santa hit me, and hit me hard. I queued up my favorite Christmas carol from Saint Tom and dug into the box with a stiff glass of Hamilton Jamaican Black Pot Rum and my Dunny loaded up with my last bowl of a favorite blend they don’t make no more.



Either I was better than I remember or Santa got me confused with another brother, cause check out this spread:

Secret Santa 2019 - BOB's Twelfth   - Page 6 E810f210
Secret Santa 2019 - BOB's Twelfth   - Page 6 84f96e10

Santa brought me a lovely inscribed card, some tasty wafer cookies, a Nightmares Before Christmas ornament, a Czech tool, pipe cleaners, booku peppermints and candy canes, a brand new MM cobbit, and too many tins to fit in a stocking:

McClelland 40th anniversary!
Pease Jacknife plug
Pease Stonehenge
St Bruno Flake
Orlik Strong Dark Kentucky
Caminetto Fiamatta
Warhorse Bar
H&H Virginia Memory
C&D Speakeasy
C&D Bayou Morning (not pictured cause there was so much it fell off the table and there was so much other stuff I didn’t notice until I was putting it away!)

Thanks so much, Santa, this is all stuff I either love or seems right in my wheelhouse! Have wanted a Cobbit since they released them, and saw Nightmare Before Christmas when it came out in theatres and love it deeply, so this will make a great addition to the tree! Couldn’t have asked for a better Christmas surprise. Thanks again, to my Santa and all you lovely brothers who make the BoB such a special place. Happy Holidays, one and all!
