Had some Mac B Scottish Mixture in a MM 5th Ave Diplomat earlier. Think I'll have some Newminster 400 Navy, too. I'll put it in a Savinelli Porto Cervo 1/4 bent Dublin. Baseball playing on the tube in the background.
Five Brothers in a Dr. Grabow Patriot billiard that I got in the mail today. The eBay seller turned out to be Tobias Lutz! Tobias found us a new home when the other forum, Puff, went down many years ago. Many of the old timers here will remember those days.

C&D Sun Bear in a LePeltier half bent brandy/apple? sitter. Then PS LBF in a Radice Twin Bore Rusticated 1/4 bent apple. This is my second smoke in the LePeltier, a double walled clay pipe with a glazed outer bowl. This pipe came to me in a box lot I bought from a friend at an average $6.50/pipe price. I'd never seen a pipe like this and paid little attention to it until the Clay Pipe thread started. A little sanding and polishing on the stem and this previously unsmoked pipe (note: the staining in the bowl in the picture is due to me loading and then unloading the bowl for the pic) is back in service. I'm not sure how old the pipe is, but the rest of the lot were at least 25 years old and one 72 years old. FWIW, it smokes great; a cool way to smoke a clay pipe.
May we live, not by our fears but by our hopes; not by our words but by our deeds; not by our disappointments but by our dreams.
