Happy Accidents

A couple years ago (I think), I bought a pound each of LBF & LTF. I had an ounce each left over with no jars left. I did have a jar with two bowls worth of McClelland Pastry in it. So I rubbed it all out and mixed them together. I opened the jar last week and have absolutely torn through it. Smoke after smoke of complete goodness. What was your happy accident?

I smoked some 965 in a heavily ennerdale ghosted pipe and really liked it, so now I occasionally mix a bit of ennerdale into lat blends. I really like the combination.

I don't usually make happy accidents...but I like to tell Mrs. Smokerings that I'm proud of being the best accident she ever had lol.

I usually have a Franken blend of some sort going, I can't say it's ever been an atrocious smoke, sometimes it's definitely better than other times, but I can't decide if it's because I happen to be jonesing for whatever is standing out most prominently at the time or not, or if it just legitimately gets better or worse, I am inclined to the first theory, no real reason to push me that way, just a gut feeling.

I had about a half-bowl each left of some Old Joe Krantz and 5:00 Shadow, and figured maybe it would be all right... The OJK filled in the "this needs more burley and punch" hole in the 5:00 Shadow, and the 5:00 Shadow took care of the "okay, it's good but a little too much most of the time" in the OJK. Just made a "wow" blend for me.
I'm also a big fan of 50/50 5 Brothers and Kendal Kentucky, though that's not exactly a "creative mix."
