Swing-and-a-miss yet again on "1792" at the Mars Cigar party. "Honey? Whose idea was it to go out last night??"
So I then lindered my frustration by picking up a pound each of Best Brown Flake and Navy Flake. Life is still good!
My latest pipe acquisitions were a pre-trans Barling Birdseye saddle bit billiard and a James Upshall saddle bit Pot: Yes, I am an anglophile with a penchant for saddle bits.
The Upshall had 3 tins each of McClelland "Boston 1776" and "Epitome" to keep it company in the shipping box, along with myriad pipe cleaners.
And now off to the Saturday morning errands....and to pick up some Ball Mason jars!
