    Hmm...the first thing that pops into my mind is Mr. Mxyzptlk. Maybe I'm too old.

    My first cup of coffee with a bowl of PA in the 4Dot. As soon as I'm awake, I need to go reinforce the swing I discovered in the back yard after golf yesterday. Hopefully the rain will hold off until a little later, since there are errands filling up the morning. I need "people" to do these things for me.

    Royal Yacht in a CG this morning. My regime is so predictable, but when I depart from it I'm always disappointed. Tried some Royal Viking for yesterday's commute - NOTHING like Royal Yacht, and the bowl went out the car window before I was even halfway through. To be replaced by something truly "royal".
    1792 Flake was first produced in 1830, exactly 139 years before man walked on the moon. Coincidence?

    Had a head spinning bowl of D&R Rimboche in the MM legend. Loses a little spice with age. Still the best Perique you can buy.

    Royal Jersey - Perique perhaps?

    Just made three small samples out the remainder of the old batch, to be dispatched this afternoon. Right now, some fresh PA from a new tub!
    One of which just landed on my desk. Now, I'm very curious as to what is in here, because I admit it smells really, really good. I'm betting at a minimum there is some Three Blind Moose in here. While I usually avoid anything approaching the "aromaticized", if this has a little punch do it (and knowing Jim, and darts, it should), I will most likely make a fine meal of it.

    THANKS, JIM!

    EDIT: according to an older post by Jim, this is: Prince Albert + Kendal Kentucky + Three Blind Moose, possibly more? From the aromas alone I would say it could use a tad more KK, but otherwise very nice. I will be trying this out on the ride home tonight.

    I always thought Kendal Kentucky was dark-fired Virginias (and Kendal Dark a mix of dark-fired and air-cured Virginias), yet I see Burley mentioned a lot with the KK. Why might that be?

    Pretty sure there is PA, but not positive. Maybe SWR? KK, FiveB, definitely. Anything beyond the Three Blind Moose and KK and codger burley will be fairly strong, whatever it is. Could even have IF or LF in it. NOt a powerhouse, but a good smoke for darts. Hope you like it!

    Smoke a ton out of the pouch today, another KK mix. About six or seven small cobs full. Tonight, the Royal Yacht!

    I can't remember off hand when he first appeared, or what year Yankee Doodle Dandy came out (the headline 'hix nix stix pix' was explained in a funny scene); about the same time, weren't they?

    Hmmm...it's technically morning, and as I'm posting here already (and don't want to follow my own post from last night on the 'tonight' thread...): Balkan Sasieni in my Altinok meer. I know everyone says virginia's benefit the most from aging, and long range, I'm sure they're right, but three years on this stuff is mighty fine.

    I think Jim is onto something here.
    Looking forward to a trifecta of Billy bud and Blk Cav with B&B's best of the rest, thrown into the bag where the last smidgen of Penzance sent to me by Dan R. came in.
    Should make for a fine early Sat. brunch from my refubed Kwoody. Humm` what an aroma there be here.

    I've read things here and there that seem to indicate that after a year or two the law of diminishing returns sets in. Might be as good as it will ever be, Mark!

    A 4Dot/PA for me this morning and then I'm finishing the Irish Oak.

    FVF in my new Dr G. grand duke.

    It was an impulse buy at Walgreens yesterday. It's good sized, rusticated, long-stemmed and attractive. I can actually fit my little finger in it, which I can not do to half my pipes.

    A hot and steaming mug of Ethiopian coffee is helping to jump-start this morning. Puffing on a bowl of Black House with a pinch of Syrian Latakia in a Worobiec Gdanska.

    I know it's not morning, but I'm slow to post. Couple of bowls of Irish Flake in the meer. Enjoying the weather, and about to go out for an early Mother's Day dinner.
