I haven't been able to smoke too much since surgery on Sept 29th, with severe pain and even worse naseaua issues. I've started several pipes but just can't get 'em finished. I must have at least 10 to DGT as of right now. Going to "attempt" some PA Choice Blend in a new (to me) Dr Grabow Grand Duke apple tonight.
I had a nice smoke for lunch today. I sat at a picnic table beside the pond behind my office building and enjoyed a bowl of some free tobacco I got from Altadis - Fox and Hound. I was very happy with this tobacco and I'm going to ask the local B&M owner to price some for me. The cool, crisp air and light breeze combined with a clear blue sky and fall foliage in it's early stages helped make the smoke as close to perfect as one could hope for!
One year ago I put away a jar of 5110, and I opened it today. I don't really smoke english blends anymore because I find latakia too overpowering. The stuff I smoked was velvet smooth, sweet, spicey; it was great. Tyler there's a sample of this stuff in the sampler I sent you.

There is as much water on Earth now as three billion years ago. While the amount of water has remained static, the amount of Tequila and Triple Sec available for making Margaritas has expanded enormously. So you see, we have made progress after all.
Trying to make my way through a bowl of Dark Flake in a meer and wow, the reviews were right, this is some STRONG stuff! Not wanting to stay lit at all, but that may be me not puffing on it very often for all the salivating and hiccups! lol
