I got a $200 prepaid Visa card for my birthday. I spent a couple of weeks trying to decide whether to replace some books I lost to water damage, or buy pipes and tobacco. In the end, I decided to dip into my savings and do both. So, after lots of cart shuffling, ordering, canceling, and...
My wife bought me a Keurig for my birthday a couple of weeks ago, along with an assortment of Wal-Mart brand cups. I've since bought more varieties. I really like it. I'm not a coffee connoisseur, so I find both the grounds and the brewing method perfectly acceptable. The convenience is wonderful.
Not a fan of Constantine (comics, movie, or show), but I picked up this lighter, because it looks cool. Google tells me the character carries a Zippo, but I think this style is better suited to the imagery on the case, and I'm not concerned about accuracy.
I left mine alone to color naturally too. It really is a great pipe, and one of the few exceptions to my personal rule of only buying bulldogs (and Rhodesians) that have the double bead lines (the others being my Bones Zuludog, and my Missouri Meerschaum bulldogs).
Got some new Morgan Bones today (yesterday, technically). Capped Calabash, Fat Calabash, and Balldog.
I'm really happy with the size of these pipes, compared with the other Bones I have (excluding the Radiator bowl). Chamber-wise, my first three aren't small, but it's nice to have something...
For the purposes of the competition, "recent" generally means that it is taken in response to the challenge. Exceptions can , and have, been made, but that's the general rule. The idea is to not dig through the archives looking for the perfect picture, but to go out and take a new one.
I've never really done that. I always end up actually smoking it. But I frequently will take a few sips before I light it, and it's always nice. Especially since I tend to smoke too fast. I like to think the unlit flavor is closer to the ideal smoking flavor than what I usually get. Aromatics...
Smoking. I really like the old-old school vibe of ropes. Although I haven't smoked this stuff in a clay yet. It's pretty good, although I can't detect any black cherry flavor, or even scent when I open the bag.
Stopped in the local sports shop to get my fishing license, and on the way out the door, I saw this Ruger Wrangler. I had some errands to run, but I went back later with more money. My first .22 handgun.
Post bachelor party smoke. C&D Chocolate Cavendish in my Radiator. It wasn't a wild night with the guys (they couldn't/can't make it; pandemic concerns), but I had some lovely ladies (friends (and my sister), not strippers) to keep me company.
