Tennessee Balkan Gold in an Altinay squat Dublin meerschaum, the first in my substitutions of Tennessee for latakia, this has Virginia Red, Tennessee, Oriental, and dark leaf. I'll take this with me when I gig tonight.
Now smoking year 2012 Rolando’s Own in a smooth straight early ‘60s Lane era “William Conrad” Charatan Executive Extra Large stretch apple with diagonal channel cuts on the lower right and left of the bowl along with a black vulcanite double comfort saddle stem.

A third of a bowl left of Sutliff Presbyterian Ordained in a straight smooth brown 2017 unbranded Upshall Canadian with a tapered black vulcanite stem. Dinner follows this smoke. Watching the Braves-Mets game, and just finished cleaning a few pipes. Fed Daisy the Feral Princess and Tomato the Brave, too.

Relaxing after a wonderful salad, chicken legs and sugar snap peas dinner with strawberries for dessert. I'm half way through this bowl of Sutliff States of Virginia Limited Edition ’23 in a 2002 smooth natural straight silver banded Ardor Venere Extra Fatta A Mano Maigret billiard, signed by Dorelio Rovera with a tapered black acrylic stem. Red, bright, and stoved Va. flakes side by side so you can mix them as you want. I layered each blend for this smoke. Will post my review at TR tomorrow.

Not far from finishing this bowl of year 2016 Sutliff 507-C Slices in a black sandblast PSB medium bend 2021 Peterson POTY 4AB No. 228/500 military mount with a silver cap and a tapered black vulcanite AB stem. Community Coffee, neat, is my drink.
Enjoyed a tasty golden delicious apple, and almost a third of the way through this bowl of D&R Raccoon’s Friend in a pre-1980s straight dark brown Comoy's Sandblast 186 billiard with a tapered black vulcanite stem. Going to work now.

Winter Ptarmigan in a Dunhill Dress Black. That does it for my blends, smoked 'em all. I have an extras bag and half an ounce of blending latakia, maybe tomorrow I'll make that, maybe tonight. This home blending has been spectacular, beyond what I would have hoped for. There wasn't a real disappointment in twenty blends. My long term goal of cellaring my own Virginia blends is doable. 🙂
A third of a bowl left of C&D Virginia Gentleman in a straight smooth dark brown pre-1940s Comoy’s Jost’s Olde English Supreme J299 Canadian with a tapered black vulcanite stem. The black cat was here and got food and plenty of attention although he seemed a little tentative at times. He sure seems like a good cat. Daisy and Tomato were not amused.
