    Good Evening, Gentlemen! Because of the rain over the past few days, I suspected that some moisture seeped into the sections of conduit that I didn't glue yet. The reason? Mr. Electrician didn't put a cover over the open outlet box on the deck leading to some rain water blowing into it and running down the vertcal sections of conduit. Well, I disconnected what wasn't glued and some drops of water came out, so I left it all apart allowing the day's heat to dry it out. The rest of the day was spent lolling and letting my back recover some more. My wife and I just finished cutting a knot of fur from around Lily's (ahem) behind. She wasn't too thrilled about it and tried to escape, but I gave her the ol' uncooperative cat wrestling hold and we got the job done. Now back in the workshop smoking a bowl of fresh OGS in the Pete smooth billiard, one last mugga java beside my elbow.

    My smoke tonight is On the Square, a blend made by Adrien Stricklen of BlendRecommender.com, who I havenít heard from in quite a while. I picked this up from him back in 2015. I sampled a bit of it then and tucked the rest away in the cellar. I came across it again this evening and now have some loaded into an English-made clay pipe.



    The components of the blend are Red Virginia, Cyprian Latakia, Perique and White Burley. I remember thinking that it was pretty good back when I first sampled it, but I also found it a little harsh (Perique and White Burley can get rowdy when they hang together). So, I tucked it away for a while to see if it would mellow. Sure enough. None of the harshness that I remember still remains. Now, it kind of reminds me of a meatier version of Presby Mix, which I find strange since the components of the two blends are so different, but itís welcome all the same.

    Hehe... I know a slightly different version, but I don't dare quote it...

    Glad to hear it turned out well Jesper....a lovely story.
    Thanks, Crawford; it really is turning out to be a great smoke.

    So is this first smoke of today; Blue Capstan Ready Rubbed in a Peterson no. 999 - Aran.

    I've been there too, Jesper. It's a 'bittersweet' experience. Rest assured, we'll all be thinking of you when the 'last bowl' is smoked.

    A very happy smoke!
    G&Hs brown flake in my newly repaired F&T reject. Been a couple of years since I snapped the stem on this pipe. Mike from blakemar's fitted a new stem for me. Apart from looking very nice, the 'fishtail' shape makes for a very comfortable clench.

    Morning Thomas, Just me & thee on, I see.

    Hats off to Crawford for sparking my interest in this shape. Not my usual style of pipe, but thought I might be 'missing out' on something, so decided to get one. Glad I did, like most of the old fashioned shapes, it smokes very well indeed. Cheers, Crawford!

    Morning Simon. Still trying to wake up, but I think you're late for work.
