I'm just noticing that the picture of the freehand I posted earlier looks very plum colored for some reason. The shot above, with the rich brown is much closer to real life. Still blows my mind that a plain, clear, cutting board oil turned the briar that color brown. Guess it's the pipes age and experience coming through

Just finished some HH Vintage Syrian with 15% perique added, in one of my Pibe Dan cabbages.

Nicholas Stephen Alkemade, Flight Sergeant rear gunner in Royal Air Force.
Avro Lancaster B Mk. II, DS664 of No.115 Squadron RAF, read what happened that night of 24 March 1944:

http://ww2awartobewon.com/wwii-articles ... ute-lived/

“It has been investigated and corroborated by the German authorities that the claim of Sergeant Alkemade, No. 1431537, is true in all respects, namely, that he has made a descent from 18,000 feet without a parachute and made a safe landing without injuries, the parachute having been on fire in the aircraft. He landed in deep snow among fir trees.

Corroboration witnessed by:
Flight Lieut. H.J. Moore (Senior British Officer)
Flight Sergeant R.R. Lamb
Flight Sergeant T.A. Jones
(25/4/44)”

I raise my Stanwell with Davidoff Argentina and a cup of Greek coffee to his memory.
