Half way through this bowl of Radford’s Opus One in a 1980s White Pipe straight, smooth octagonal paneled billiard meerschaum with an acrylic yellow cream colored saddle stem. A bottle of Cheerwine made with pure cane sugar is my drink.
I am watching the documentary: Hell and Back Again (2011) about the life of Sgt. Nathan Harris. Wounded in battle, Harris with PTSD returns to North Carolina and his devoted wife to fight pain, addiction, and the terrifying normalcy of life at home.

I am smoking Rattray's Old Cowrie in a Stanwell, glass of brandy beside me.
Almost half way through this bowl of McClelland 5100 in a smooth straight WW2 Pre-Republic Peterson Sterling Canadian with a sterling silver band and a black vulcanite p-lip stem. A cup of Maxwell House, neat, is my drink.
Not far from finishing this bowl of SWRA in a black 1997 Brebbia Jubilee 925 silver banded grain sandblast briar calabash with a black acrylic stem. Ice water and bergs is my evening drink. Went to our neighbor's house to see their two month old huskey.
Relaxing after a wonderful chicken legs and mashed potatoes dinner a quarter of a freshly baked egg custard pie for dessert. Now smoking original Stonehenge in a 1986 three quarter bend Bacchus face CAO meer with a tortoise shell stem.
