A third of the way through this bowl of Dunhill Elizabethan Match in a 2003 smooth three quarter bend Rinaldo Fiammata Odissea Titania 02 Silver Line 3 Straight Grain egg with a black acrylic tapered stem. Reading some Bing.
Engine 99, Grabow. Good end to a good day. Got some work done around the house, scooped some snow, dozed off in the chair for a while with my two year old, went out and had a nice dinner with my lovely wife. Doesn't really get a hell of a lot better. Think I'm gonna sleep good tonight.
Now smoking 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. Phone chatting about Ellery Queen and actor Jim Hutton, who played Ellery in the 1970s.
Likely my last smoke of the day, which is Jim's Va/Bur in a 2015 Basil Meadows Bing Crosby Merchant Service replica with a smooth straight thin shank, aluminum band and black ebonite stem. Reading about Bing, and am about 80-90 pages from finishing the book.
Three to post, as usual. Friday's midday bowl was Irish Flake in the bent apple Diplomat. Saturday night's bowl was Pegasus, also in the bent apple Diplomat. Hadn't realized that I'd smoked that one back to back until just now. Did I mention it's been busy, lol... Anyway, Sunday's midday bowl was SPC Potlatch in the Dr. Grabow Royal Duke straight bulldog.
Good morning, for a Monday. DGT Dark Flake Unscented in the Bewlay. Fresh coffee. Hadn't checked the mail from Saturday so I grabbed it this morning. The county needs my service in the form of Jury Duty. I think they just keep coming back to the ones that actually show up.
Good morning, y'all:
After feeling knocked out by overindulging Cornell & Diehl's Burley Flake(s), yesterday, I am now enjoying a bowl of my more congenial daily staple Carter Hall in a Cob with Coffee.
