Breakfast smoke of Peter Stokkebye Proper English (improving my grammar, you see) in a Goussard stack billiard with facet shank. Cats all over me....catnip?
G'day, I will have to try PS, PE, in my Parker Billiard, but with my limited education , I struggle with contemporary grammar, in our multicultural world of American English, Asian English & Afrikan English, & British English, it seems in this world of the M. TV MacPC , the only third person , personal pronoun permitted is now IT ! My dog Pop , seems to Catnap all day, but he had the operation for free , as a "prisoner" of the RSPCA, so he is an IT too, such is life... PS. I have enjoyed some American literature , as well as British & European & world literature & the typo's & spelling, & free verse, makes me want to sharpen my quill & write letters. But maybe the new lingua franca, will soon be Arabic or Esperanto or a computer language or TwitterSpeak or the Dollar bill ! PPS, excuse the little rant , a sore point,but I am not criticising just sourgrapes having no Latin, in the face of change & ageing , tide & time stop for noman, but is an IT a man ? Started the morning with a few puffs of G PlumCake in my Hardcastle jockey club pipe, walking Pop, next a Royal Dutch blue in the meer holder before breakfast. Enjoy your puffing & whiffing friends & all. ( a grumpy old fool today, a civilian, unprepared & unarmed in the modern world)
G'Day ye all, I had a really enjoyable smoke after lunch walking Pop. It was overcast with dark clouds, hot & muggy , as we say, meaning it is a moist & sweaty atmosphere, ready for an impending rainstorm or thunderstorm , to clear the air. I had bowl of G Old Tom's mix in my well worn MM corncob, with a slightly bent Amber stem, the Germain's are really to my taste, traditional English blends, Uncle Tom's has bright, light colour, with a pleasing mellow taste that you expect. But it reminds me of my favourite English biscuit , Rich Tea, a plain unflavoured slightly browned crispy biscuit, as pleasing as a crusty loaf of fresh bread, or a ripe speckled brown banana, the Rich Tea is traditionally eaten with a cup of tea with milk, and maybe a spoonful of sugar, and it can be dunked into the tea, giving the crispy almost savoury plain biscuit a creamy taste and texture. Such is Uncle Tom's maybe smoked on the verandah or in your conservatory in the light of day as bright as the blends look, with plain tea & biscuit. Enjoying some cool Spring waters, old Pop is still panting. Bye'All.
Half way through this bowl of Edgeworth Ready Rubbed in a 1970s three quarter bend half smooth, half black sandblasted Savinelli Autograph 4 with a pearl grey brown lucite stem and ferrule. A bottle of Mountain Dew made with pure cane sugar is my drink. Almost time for Mad Dog Russo.
Now smoking 2006 McClelland Bayou Slices (Blakeney’s Best) in a 1984 three quarter bend medium brown Ascorti KS Business Dublin with a black acrylic stem. Have about three bowls of it left. This will get me to dinner time.
G'evenin'folks, smoking some Old Gandhi's Postman, a rare local blend, in my Billy'O Piper Christmas Special a cherrywood bowl & Ivory style stem with a brass band between, engraved with elvish script, of Our White Lady of the Oakwoods, by a local artisan Charles Carpenter. May you find peace & happiness.....
Relaxing after a wonderful spaghetti with meat sauce dinner with a bowl of St. James Flake in a 1986 three quarter bend Bacchus face CAO meer with a dark amber colored acrylic stem. Watching the Cubs-Pirates game.
