Relaxing after a wonderful pork chops and beans dinner with a banana split for dessert. I'm about a quarter of the way through this bowl of HU Old Fredder’s Broken Flake in a smooth straight early 1960s Lane era 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 stem. This pipe was formerly owned by actor William Conrad.
Now smoking Watch City Slices in a smooth medium bend 2011 Rinaldo Collection Fiammata Silver Line 7 Odea 4 flame grain bulldog with a silver band and a tortoise shell acrylic stem. Working and listening to the MLB talk on the XM.
Enjoyed an apple and dried apricots snack, and my last smoke for the day is Edgeworth Ready Rubbed Match in a very much appreciated 1979 brown, slight bend grain etched flat front Stanwell Rego 969-48 (09) with a black vulcanite stem.
Just finishing this bowl of 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 Boylan's Birch Beer made with pure cane sugar is my drink. Had a tasty lunch, and am waiting for the Braves-Red Sox game. Raining hard outside.
About a quarter of the way through this bowl of Wingfield Mixture in a smooth straight 1980s James Upshall Walnut pot with a black vulcanite stem. Haven't smoked it in many years, but I sure do remember the taste. Nice, comfortable blend. Watching the Braves-Red Sox game, and deciding what pipes to try out 4 new-to-me Wilke blends that I got today.
Now smoking Wilke Belmont in a 1975 three quarter bend black Dunhill Shell 52021 with a black vulcanite stem. Molly was bored, and picked a fight with Suzy, and the two were rolling around on the floor, deadlocked in struggle... until Suzy gave up and walked away. Molly took that as a victory, and pounced on Suzy's back, and the rasslin' started all over again. I should sell tickets!
General Holland Smith: "Was Tarawa worth it? My answer is unqualified: No. From the very beginning the decision of the Joint Chiefs to seize Tarawa was a mistake and from their initial mistake grew the terrible drama of errors, errors of omission rather than commission, resulting in these needless casualties".
I am smoking Amphora Original Blend ,i raise my bowl for the 1.696 [US Marines and Navy] which didn't saw the sun rising next day.
