Just closed out a 120 hour stretch over 12 days and ready for a couple days off. I have been looking for a blend with a touch of latikia to broaden my palate. I have run a couple bowls of Edward G. Robinson’s Pipe Blend through this MM Bent Diplomat and a small Dublin meerschaum. I have enjoyed it. But I’m ready for a nice VaPer next.

@Olmstead Very sorry to read about your loss. Saying goodbye to a loved pet is such a hard thing.

I've been away from The Den for a while in the wake of losing my best buddy, my Oriental-American cat Lucy - the most incredibly un-cat-like and sweet pet I ever had or knew. She died suddenly Wednesday morning. I just finished making a grave for her in my garden.

Lucy was my boon companion; more dog-like than feline. Save for a few rare times, we spent every day of the past two years together. Lucy loved the smell of flakes being rubbed up, and she'd tolerate more second-hand pipe smoke than any non-smoker I know. She'd often come sit on my lap while I smoked; nearly as much a part of my smoking ritual as my accoutrements are.

Now I know this isn't a support forum for grieving animal lovers, so I'm smoking Capstan Blue Flake in my BriarWorks Rhodesian, with an empty lap.

I wish you all pleasant puffing.
sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. Lucy sounded like she was a great companion.

trying to figure out this new Linux OS on this computer a friend gave me since my last one died. enjoying some Dunhill London Mixture in my Medico Cavalier blasted Rhodesian. about to brew some coffee.

Sorry for your loss...we had a very similarly tempered cat that seemed more dog than cat, I didn’t think I was going to get all choked up but when we had to put her down it stung. Will be keeping you in my thoughts this day.
