Relaxing after a wonderful salad, chicken legs and green beans dinner with strawberries for dessert. I'm not far from finishing 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. Gold Star Hawaiian Kona Extra Fancy is my drink.

Ok, I said I wasn’t going to open another tin until I finished some of my open tobacco. Hmmm...I’m lacking in self control. I opened up that new/old stock Crumble Kake Va Perique and a 14 month old tin of Three Nuns today. Nobody likes a quitter. Lol. Also, I’m sad to report that I broke the tenon on my L.L. Bean billiard tonight. Best twenty buck pipe I ever had! ☹️

I hate it when that happens. At least you can get that fixed.

Yeah, at least I didn't mess up the mortise. I had to place a screw in the tenon to get it out. All I did was tap the bowl on the heal of my hand and it snapped in half. Thanks for being there for me In my time of need. Lol.

Consider yourself lucky. The majority of people never know the joy of owning or bonding with a horse. Too old to rodeo anymore, but just riding the trails around here is pure nirvana. My wife talking with her horse Teddy.
Was always a dream of mine, to ride the range, in a western saddle, and to holiday on one of those dude ranches you guys have over there. Alas it has to remain a dream, since losing the use of the lower part of my body, while serving in the British Army.

After a reasonably good dinner of mac n cheese with finely chopped chicken, (after oral survery I'm on mush food for a month), enjoying Watch City Terrapin Station in a Bjarne NOS blasted bent billiard. Warres Porto on the side. Good match up. Molly and I relaxing before she gets her bath, lol.
Awwwwww Hi molly

Good morning friends.
Glorious Sunday here in ye olde England. Just watched us pick up gold and silver in the gymnastics, in the Commonwealth Games. And so looking forward to the European final England v Germany in the girls football (soccer).
But I digress. Today's choice is a Falcon fitted with a Meershaum bowl. Plugged with Erinmore ready rubbed.
Have a great day everybody

Good morning Zippo,
That’s the best looking Falcon I’ve ever seen. More classical than the typical “robot arm” look. Love your dog sitting in his own chair in the background. He seems very interested in what’s going on. Have a great day my friend.

Good morning Sturdy.
Yeah I love Falcons, but along with you, I do have an extra liking for that particular one. I bought that dog bed for my dog Frodo, as it perfectly matched our furniture suite, but your right, he's a nosey little so and so lol.
Have a great day too Buddy

Hey Zippo,
Sad to hear about the injuries you received while serving your country in the British Army. I salute you sir!

Thank you Buddy.
But it could have been worse, I at least got home, I'm lucky, I'm happy, i live a good life, and I have my pipes 😁
Well, I for one appreciate the sacrifices you made for your country. That is not lip service, it comes from the bottom of my heart. My father and four uncles served during WWII. A fifth uncle served in the Korean War and was one of the few survivors of Pork Chop Hill. He never spoke of the war. Ever!

And I Sturdy my friend. Thank you and your family for their service to your great nation.
But to get back to the thread, I've not long finished a traditional English lunch of roast beef, and I'm now about to plug a Meershaum with some St Bruno, and relax and digest, whilst getting back to my day of TV sport

Mikki, So sorry to hear that. Wish I could offer an option but most dude ranches here are just not equipped for special needs folks. As a fellow veteran I salute your service and sacrifice.
