As time has flown by and the years start to add up, I find myself less the "night-owl" I once was. Now days, I like being up before the sun rises and watching her climb from behind the horizon and into the morning sky, refreshed from a restful slumber. Accompanying me nearly every morning is a hot cup of coffee and a bowl full of a good smoke. I know I'm not the only one that continues to grow more thankful to be allowed to continue to witness such a wonderful occurrence. This is a gift that is in limited supply.
If you're on this list, please chime in and give a shout out to your fellow Pipers here at Puff.
This morning, it's Prince Albert in a MM Country Gentleman and a mug of 8 o'clock.
Fantastic thread, I too am a early riser weekends or weekdays and though I dont smoke in the morning I would like to wish all a good Monday.

Great thread Dale, I also love the mornings. Now that spring is here it's nice to hear the birds singing away and the robins are happily digging in the mulch for worms. Doves are back as well cooing away. Long dreary winter but warmer weather is around the corner.
For me it's my standby Stanwell and a bowl of Bald Headed Teacher along with some good roast.
I generally get around about 7:30 to 8, no matter when I went to bed, but sometimes the cats will roust me earlier, so I only see the sun rise in the winter. I've always had this view that we're genetically wired to stay put until daylight, because there are very big animals that get up before dawn with keen night vision that are very hungry.
Whatever, first thing I do is pour some coffee and crank up a pipe!

Glad I'm not alone in this. We have one cat... Spanky... He usually wakes up my Wife with sweet, morning kisses while he's on the pillows between us. Well, you can probably guess which end I get to wake up to.
Excellent thread, I was up before the sun today, and am on most days. Had my Country Gentleman loaded up with Bayou Morning Flake, but I was drinking the venerable Folgers. There is something incredibly reassuring about tobacco and coffee in the pre-dawn hours. I feel that a relaxing start to the day greatly contributes to my mental health. Read, smoke, and drink, that's the way to live. Now if I could only find a way to get paid to do this, I'd be set.

Amen brother. If you find anyone hiring, tell em you know a few other guys that are "unemployed" at the moment. LOL
I only get to have a morning pipe on the weekends. I just don't wake up with enough time before work during the week, but I don't mind so much. I like that it keeps me from smoking too much (which I'm prone to do) and makes my weekend pipes all the more enjoyable.
I've been finding I really enjoy a good breakfast on the weekends, followed by a French Press full of good joe and pipe of something rather strong. I'll usually smoke Pease Cumberland or even a C&D Burley Flake for morning breakfast, just to get things moving. A great way to start the day!
Great thread man. I almost never get up in time to see the sun rise. More often than not, I'm more prone to see it come up before going to sleep. Wile I am not one of the early risers, I do love my morning routine of strong coffee and strong baccy. I'm just now getting up and am drinking coffee from my French press and smoking a bowl of Happy Bogie.
A lack of preparation on your part, does not constitute an emergency on my part.
awesome! i have been enjoying early morning pipe. and i guess i might be the minority on this. But a nice cup of tea, not a coffee drinker haha. Sadly i ran out of my good teas and waiting for another shipment to come back in.....
Well done thread brother...I don't drink coffee and usually dont have tea till later in the morning, BUT, most mornings, I start my day with a bowl full of a nice English and some fresh water...I find the early pipe takes away my hunger a bit till I can eat...
This morning it was Beck's Ol Limey Bastard in my Savinelli dedicated to english blends....Damn, now I have to check this every morning!!!!!
