Reasonable English

Presbyterian mixture is not unreasonable, if you can find it. C&D Engine 99, Pirate Kake, Star of the East, Villeger-Early Day, GL Pease Gaslight. These are a few English blends which I like that do not break the bank, especially if you catch them on sale.

Passing of a friend.

Of course, we are going to have at least four judges, one sheriff, two state troopers and a couple of dozen attorneys amongst the the crowd....hmmmm

Passing of a friend.

My apologies guys, I have been down with a summer cold the past few days and just not online. I got the word that his memorial service will be at the local Moose Lodge, next Sunday. Just as Joe would've wanted, we all get drunk at the Moose and have a big bar fight in his memory. Sniff--It's so touc...

Passing of a friend.

Thanks everybody. I appreciate the sentiment but it is his wife, son and daughter I feel for. He was a bit of a larger than life figure and worth having known.
Ah well, life goes on.

Passing of a friend.

I got up this morning and came to work to find out that one of my best friends died last night. Jo Coleman was not a pipe smoker but, otherwise, he would have fit in pretty good around here. He was a native of Missouri but moved to Virginia a long time back and worked, for about 19 years, for the Vi...

Meerschaum

One of the best meers that I have I picked up at a county fair flea market. The stem was broken off and it was very caked up. I cleaned that puppy up and sent it off to have a new stem fitted. I am 90% certain it is African meerschaum. Got it back and it is one of my best smoking pipes. I have no id...

Beautiful! NSAIDS ruined my kidneys so I can't ever take them again. Mentioning this to my doctors gets me the good stuff that I don't abuse. I am in the process of figuring out how to carry our Yorkie (pure princess) Lacy on the trike. Ehhh, it is what it is. I had loads of fun when I was younger....

I forgot to mention the baby bears we saw, scampering across the road, as we arrived. I was unable to get a picture. I am sure they were distant cousins kids. My wife insists that I am a "bear" and must be related to all the bears we see in the mountains of Virginia, NC and TN. LOL
