nice pipe.
Thanks. This one was from the 70s when they were made by a Danish master carver living in Israel. It is no Preben Holm, but solid upper-middle quality with a Danish aesthetic. The brand later sold to Mastercraft as a price-point product, and those are the ones that most Americans know.

cloudy morning - storms predicted the last week and the next 12 days or so seem to be scarce and the last 7 years or so the weather people must be smoking something else, if you get my drift - they are basically 90% wrong. had a pot of coffee and a bowl of spark plug in a preben.

inside now and will make some breakfast and maybe some serious espresso or possibly some tea - not sure what yet - and then will go out and do some garden work and vineyard work. (Firewood is way behind schedule this year so have pondered doing some of that too) Have nice sunday morning!

FINAL COUNTDOWN

Gentlemen, no matter how hard the Enemy (the Hygienist Anti-Pipe Smoking Committee) tried to postpone the date, tomorrow, May 25, the cafes will open (outdoor space only). It won't be the same as before (fewer people-the tables at a greater distance, etc.) but it's a start. No matter what they do, they can't stop us, we will smoke our pipe in public with coffee and Kompoloi until the end, we will never give up the fight!









Stanwell Vanilla.

SG Grousemoor in a Stanwell churchwarden
I've always been tempted by Grousemoor but have been scared when I read how people say it is "oddly perfumed."

Is your churchwarden a HCA or something else?
It is perfumed, not typical lakeland essence. To be honest, the first 3rd of the pipe was like air.
The pipe in question was mine, it is an HCA Stanwell. Gave it to a co-worker who i went to visit after i got off work. It is also his Grousemoore.

He doesn't like the blend, and the pipe had dust on it, bowl still looked new, no ghosting, so it took a ton of relights to get that stuff going (whichbis odd for me and sg/gh blends).

Smoking some 2011 Robert McConnell Folded Flake in a Radice Rind Billiard, the PSD 2019 POY. I seem to have a thing for these POY’s/LE’s.

Sun finally broke through the gloom. Mac Baren Vintage Syrian in a Peterson Deerstalker Meerschaum. Already getting hot and humid, will have to retire my English/Balkans and transition to Virginias for the summer.

I'm smoking some EMP in a Ser Jacopo Rowlette Candle Carving tapered billiard. Some french press coffee on the side.

Enjoy your weekend.

Pleasant 79 degrees with some cooling breeze. Transitioning to Summer blends and enjoying some Ashton Gold Rush in a Golden Gate Ukrainian pipe. This is the pipe I've mentioned before, the Golden Swan model that cost just fifty bucks delivered to my door (from a U.S. seller) and it smokes as good or better than some of the Petes and Savs I paid $115 for!  Does well with Virginias.
