Now smoking Tobacconist Reserve Ltd. Blend 07 in a 1975 medium bend sandblasted looking, smooth on the sides yellow Pioneer meer with a black vulcanite ferrule and stem in the military mount style. This is a peach blend. Braves have already choked, giving up ten runs in the top of the first. The pre-game hosts all said Atlanta would win, but Pedro Martinez said the Braves' starter would not match his previous game, which was true.
 
Breaking up all the VA with a bit of H&H Chestnut in a Savinelli Pianoforte on a work break, courtesy of one @CrazyIvan779, gentleman that he is. I wasn't expecting this blend to be almost a light English. It's less creamy and buttery and more smoky and nutty than I had in mind, but it's a smooth smoke for a windy fall afternoon. More bowls of this to come soon.

So much for Braves vs Cards game. Smoking SWRA in a rusticated Peterson Sherlock Holmes Hudson P-lip with ice water.
I didn't expect them to win, but I didn't expect such a beating so early in the game. Better managing by Snitker in a couple of the earlier games would have lead the Braves to win the series.
 
Earlier . . . Peretti BPC in a small cob..

Now smoking C&D OJK in a Missouri Meerschaum Mark Twain. I put off trying this for two years because people kept telling me it’s a nicotine ‘bomb‘. I disagree with that. I sense a fair amount of nicotine, but nowhere enough that I cannot enjoy it regularly, or even as my morning pipe.

On a non-related note, I dislike how people use the word ‘bomb’ to denote something other than explosives. I have many other words and expressions to complain about, but now is not the time.
