Enjoyed a tasty cinnamon raisin French toast lunch with peach slices on the side. I've about a third of a bowl left of year 2014 Astley’s No. 109 Medium Flake in a 1991 Ashton Brindle X straight brown sandblast dublin with a square shank and tapered square acrylic cumberland stem. Not far from finishing my revised review of this blend.
Now smoking year 2022 Astley’s No. 109 Medium Flake in a black sandblasted straight 1998 XXX Ashton Pebble Grain lovat with a black acrylic saddle stem. Going to finish the review update this afternoon.
A quarter of the way through this bowl of year 2013 Rotary Navy Cut in a post-1938 Pre-Republic Peterson Dublin straight smooth X155 bulldog with a sterling silver band and a tapered black vulcanite p-lip stem. Nigel Bruce smoked this model in two Sherlock Holmes movies. Please consider asking Smoking Pipes to bring back this model. This will get me to dinner time.
Earlier started a bowl of Benediction in a Studio half bent rhodesian with iced coffee aside. Only 1/3rd of the way into it and we had our first real monsoon. Peanut sized hail, gusty winds to 30 mph. Had to bail and go inside as the winds were coming from the NNW and blowing under the patio. So we had a nice supper of mahi mahi and pasta salad. Now finishing it as an after dinner smoke with leftover cabernet from dinner. Still overcast. May get more rain later.
Relaxing after a wonderful salad, French cut pork chops and sugar snap peas dinner with a big bowl of double chocolate ice cream topped with sliced strawberries for dessert. I'm a third of the way through this bowl of Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation Evening Flake in a smooth medium bend 2021 Peterson Ebony POTY 4AB No. 422/500 military mount with a silver cap and a tapered black vulcanite AB stem. Ice water and bergs is my drink.
Starting my day with a Corsica bull moose with MB 7 seas regular blend and a mug of 8 o`clock hazelnut coffee. I was asked to come to the soup kitchen earlier than usual as they have been swamped and they are short on volunteers,many of the volunteers want to help but can`t afford to gas up their cars. Biden is hurting the country,people can`t afford to buy food & have to resort to a soup kitchen to feed their families and good people that want to help ,can no longer afford gasoline,sorry for the rant! this is getting absurd!
Up early again. Wanted to get in one nice long smoke before our retired Ranger breakfast at 8. So it's Urban Cowboy in the Lorenzo giant bent billiard with a big mug of hot black coffee.
EZ, I feel your frustration. I volunteer at Horses with Heart, a therapy riding program for youth and adults with mental, emotional, and physical disabilities. Located in Chino Valley about 15 miles north of Prescott. I'm out there 2/3 sometimes 4 days a week. So I'm filling up the truck 2 sometimes 3 times a month at $120 a pop. We have had volunteers who cut back because they can't afford gas to come out. Hay for the horses has gone up 30 to 35% in the last 3 months. Very frustrating.
About a third of a bowl left of year 2014 Edward G. Robinson's Pipe Blend in a 2014 Basil Meadows smooth slight bend squashed tomato with an aluminum band and a black pearl acrylic stem in the military mount style. Getting some awesome estate pipes today.
Just passing the quarter mark on this bowl of first release Watch City Rouxgaroux in a smooth medium bend 2021 Peterson POTY Natural 4AB No. 6/500 military mount with a silver cap and a tapered black vulcanite AB stem. Ice water and bergs is my drink. Watching Mad Dog Russo.
Enjoyed a tasty lunch, and am a quarter of the way through this bowl of Pfeifen Huber Virginia Golden Flake in a 1938 smooth straight brown patent Dunhill R 115 bowling ball apple with a tapered cumberland stem. Lavazza Classico, neat, is my drink.
