Last smoke of the day is Orlik Racing Green in a 2003 smooth medium bend Peterson Sherlock Holmes Series Baskerville with a sterling silver band and black vulcanite p-lip stem. Fed Suzy and Molly, who are happily relaxing as I read baseball box scores and watch Moonraker, one of the weaker Bond films.
Started the new grey morning on a fresh note a third of a Habana Fonseca half corona a mild tobacco , like savoury roast chicken with salty gravy , my first humidor cigar , after my tin mini cigars, most appropriate . Complemented it with my new man drink , Buffalo Trace & three different Penderyn Welsh Whiskys, mixed, it is the greatest, with a cigar. I am looking forward to trying something a bit meatier for my second humidor cigar. Such is life as they say over the pond, that's life as they say down south...,I prefer my tinned minis, but an occassional humidor , is fun in my senior years.
A quiet day whiffing on more of my Habana Fonesca half corona , a rare treat for me, on a late liquid lunch ( should I call it Trunch ? ) of Murphys stout in a glass tankard & a glass of half Buffalo Trace & half my mix of three Penderyn Welsh Whiskys, I feel like pouring my Polish & Russian Vodka down the blooming sink, folks, I may have a bite for tea later GW. I will have my first Irish Flake later rolled in my Peterson Christmas pipe & maybe brush up my University course in Gaelic & Welsh...to speak better British English xXx
Half way through this bowl of Edgeworth Ready Rubbed in a 2002 smooth top, black sandblasted quarter bend Karl Erik Ekstravagant horn with a horn insert in the ferrule and black acrylic stem. Ice tea and bergs is my drink on another hot and humid day.
Just finished smoking Edward G. Robinson's Pipe Blend in a 1976 black rough carved Pioneer Meerschaum Oom Paul with a brown acrylic stem. Floyd Norwood fixed the tenon for me so I can smoke this old pipe again.
Relaxing after a wonderful crock pot spaghetti with meat sauce dinner with a bowl of HU Aus Dem Kater No.2 in a 1982 smooth straight Dunhill Root Briar 31051 Dublin with a black vulcanite stem. Ice water and bergs is my evening drink. Molly's more interested in attention than she is in my status update, but I forgive her because I'm just that sorta fella.
Seattle Pipe Club Plum Pudding in a dark red straight grain James Upshall 1/2 bent billiard. Some liken this to Penzance. I would respectfully disagree. This isn't bad smoke; however, the Orientals don't dance on the tongue the same as that one. The Perique is barely noticeable which isn't a bad thing; however, I find G.L. Pease Quiet Nights which contains the same components slightly superior. I'm cellaring Quiet Nights.

Finishing my Habana humidor Cigar, the founder of the cigar company settled in New York, the Cuban business surviving the revolution, it was the best cigar I have but I do not have the leisure for these luxuries, work & prayer, the Spanish cigars are fine & I would love to go on the Santiago pilgrimage, but pilgrimages are better than idle beach leisure if you have the time , I prefer a small tinned cigar occassionally between jobs a British or Dutch mini cigar. Will try a pipe later. Strange news from the troubled EU in Germany & France, but I pray sober heads prevail. Must fly work to do.
A little over half way through this bowl of HU Aus Dem Kater No.1 in a 2003 medium bend straight grain Viggo Nielsen Dublin sitter with a Cumberland-like lucite stem. A bottle of Mountain Dew made with pure cane sugar is my drink. Suzy and Molly were happy to race me to the kitchen when I awoke. I finished last because I'm congenitally lazy. They weren't amused.
