Now smoking Orlik Racing Green in a smooth early Radice full bend crossgrain/bird's eye 2 dot Clear with a black acrylic stem. Ice water and bergs is my evening drink on another relentlessly hot and humid day.
Now smoking Old Colonial in a medium bend beater 1979 Aalborg natural freehand made by Nording with a black vulcanite stem. Whether this is my last smoke of the day depends upon how much play time the very persistent Suzy and Molly are.
Almost finished smoking Stokkebye Natural Dutch Cavendish in a 1970s medium bend smooth Ben Wade Golden Walnut freehand with a black vulcanite stem. A glass of Welch's Red Grape Juice is my drink. Up early to chat with an editor.
Went a brisk walk without Pop, lots of cars & fumes , fuming by, sat in a car park of an old pub with a bottle of Manns brown ale, smoking my pipe a young family arrived giving me dark looks with my pipe smoking, I drank up and walked on . Sat on the Verandah of an old mansion , now a museum, overlooking the rose garden and sloping fields with out of control dogs walking off the lead, A clear view through the full green trees of the Welsh hills beyond the Mersey, the Wirral & the Dee, so near yet so far...
Almost finished smoking PCCA Millennium 2000 in a 1970s smooth straight rough top Charatan's Make (Lane) Perfection Deluxe Extra Large and a black vulcanite stem. A bottle of Mountain Dew made with pure cane sugar is my drink.
Now smoking MacBaren Raw Classic in an egg shaped medium bend smooth Burgundy colored 1985 Caminetto with a black acrylic stem. Watching Mad Dog Russo, which I DVR'd from earier today. Mad Dog has the week off, and the show suffers from his vacation time.
Now smoking Peter Heinrichs Nr. 35 in a 2004 smooth long stem Canadian Trever Talbot Ligne Bretagne Faite en Bretagne 4/3 with a black vulcanite stem. Working and listening to the Mets - Cardinals game.
A couple minutes away from smoking... wait for it! You know what's next! Yes, it's Edward G. Robinson's Pipe Blend in a 1982 black sandblasted paneled slight bend Savinelli flat bottom sitter with a black vulcanite stem. Myeah!
Had a Royal Dutch mini cigar in my ebony holder, & walked Pop in the darkening night street, finished with some puffs of my Holger Dane with my whiskey special flavouring in my favourite Blakemar rustic poker, watched six short episodes of Music, Get Playing on BBC IPlayer, Pop was restless but is snoozing now.
Puffing on a bit more of my Blakemar & Holger Dane & whiskey flavour, with a nightcap of Laphroaig triple wood, in my Laphroaig tasting glass, pipe dreaming of Holy Joes Yeti haunting the Victorian streets looking for the ghosts of old Sherlock and his good doctor, then I woke up and it was just my hairy old dog pestering my night dreams...
