Hi, Mari! Heady stuff like Old Dark fired will rot your brain. Best send it out to the newbies to properly indoctrinate them in tobacco depravity. :mrgreen:

Unhappily, I can no longer claim presenile dementia in such cases, but at least I say my golf game has experienced a second childhood.

I'm having some Royal Yacht in the overworked-of-late Savinelli 120 Anni.

Awesome pipe!! Is it one of a kind, limited edition or is it a generic design?
EDIT: never mind, looked it up briefly, must be a limited edition anniversary special that has now become a hard to find pipe...dang...

It's their 120th Anniversary pipe, hence 120 Anni..."anni" is years in Italian. They have one every year, I think. Anyhow, thanks for the compliment! I loaded it up with Stonehaven a little while ago, turned out all the lights and went into the back yard to watch the Perseids. As we settled into our chairs and our eyes adjusted to the darkness, clouds rolled in, just in time to spoil everything. Couldn't wait an HOUR!? sigh. A few years ago, we saw a big bolide, trailing smoke and everything, just like in the sci-fi flicks. Almost looked hokey, like one of those Japanese 1950s special effects. No aliens, though.

Looked up the astronomical terms and first I sympathize with you (stupid clouds!) and second: you saw a bolide awesome!

Don't believe I've tried this, but anything with the word "Fired" in it is probably good for me.

Hey, brother! Good to see you on the pipe side again, and back on puff for that matter...

For those who don't know, he really is my big brother.

1792 Flake was first produced in 1830, exactly 139 years before man walked on the moon. Coincidence?

Actually, I've seen two. About 35 years ago, driving to Utica one evening, for a duplicate bridge tournament, one flew directly down the road toward Utica. Very bright and impressive. Saw it coming in the rear view mirror, went directly overhead and straight east. It landed somewhere in the hills around Cedar Lake, just outside of Utica, and local astronomy clubs looked for meteorite for weeks, but they never found anything.

Having some Dart Mix and a -- get ready -- Labatt Blue! Hit some totally wonderful golf shots today, for me anyhow. It's not like the "big boys" any more, a bit more like the LPGA these days. I like hitting the ball well more than I do scoring well, apparently, since I do one so much better than the other. With any sort of functional short game I'd have managed under par, but golf is like that. In Brandel Chamblee's words, "Golf is like a blanket that's too small: pull it up to cover your chin and your toes get cold." :biglaugh: My short game has been pretty decent lately, but naturally, it's toast now that I can hit the ball again.

Dart Mix couldn't possibly taste as well as it does when paired with "America's best tasting beer"!!

It's a bit like driving a Maserati wearing ski boots, I suppose. But it works okay. :tu I'll survive. In fact, I think I'll risk it one more time.

Re: The Afternoon Smoke Break

Morning and afternoon as been bowl after bowl of Dunhill Early Morning Pipe from my Surrey Legend Cob (so named due to it's local modifications). It's now broken in and a decent cake built up. My opinion hasn't changed much. Good smoker despite the far too open draw. Tastes are slightly dulled. Great value but won't have me reaching for it habitually.

@freestoke Jim - I am extremely jealous of your close encounters of the bolide kind. Never seen anything worthy of a better name than "shooting star" myself.
