Starting off my smoking day with 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. A bottle of Sprite is my drink. Going through the awesome trade samples I just received.

Just finished smoking McClelland 27 in a 2014 smooth medium bend Basil Meadows egg with an aluminum band and a "root beer swirl" acrylic stem. Almost done with this sample. Ice tea and bergs is my drink.

I am smoking Briar Patch King's Ransom in the memory of Markos Botsaris, one of the most respectful person in the Greek Independence War of 1821 against turks.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Markos_Botsaris
In Strasbourg they gave his name in a square, in Paris on a road and in a Metro station.



Here in the Military Museum of France his weapons and his pipe.



Yes, he was "one of us".

Just finished smoking Esoterica Dorchester in a smooth straight late ‘50s, early 1960s Lane era Charatan Selected 43 Dublin with a black vulcanite double comfort stem. This pipe was formerly owned by actor William Conrad, too! My second Conrad pipe. Ice water and bergs is my evening drink.

I love the history. Thanks for sharing. I now have something in common with Markos Botzarus, I have a road named for me too! When my parents sold some of their land in our hometown to a developer, it was stipulated that the road they put in would be called Conrad Road or Street. When all was done, it come out as Conrad Court! Too bad I wasn't famous as Markos!


Tonight I'm smoking Bengal Slices in my Savinelli 320.

Sid, that's a helluva pipe Markos Botsaris had! And thanks once again for this history.

8)

Had the last of the Amphora Original blend after work, once again in the Tinsky '15 BoB POTY. I see that sp has this on sale until the 15th. Dunno if I'll go for it though.

Now smoking some aged Stonehead in the Tinsky '12 Xmas dark blast, which seems to be dedicated to it.


Cheers,

RR
