    I was just thinking about having a bowl myself. My son is sick and I don't feel that well myself. Maybe a smoke and some hot tea will help

    On a side note I don't think my tin is sealing properly. When I opened it the tobacco seemed a little dry and brittle. It seems to be smoking normally. I wonder if I should put the remaining tobacco in a mason jar?

    I jar everything. If a tin is overly wet when I open it, I will either dry the whole tin a while or just leave it in the tin till it gets where I want the moisture level.

    whiskey I just fired up some of your "Black and Blue". Very tasty. Reminds me a bit of 4 Noggins' "Prairie Wind" but better.

    Thanks. It's a staple for me. I'll have to try Prairie Wind.

    I used to like to do Old Joe Krantz and Carter Hall 50/50. When OJK is new it's kind of harsh and the CH mellows it with a little sweetness. Unfortunately I was out of the aged OJK so what I'm putting in the box is new but it'll give folks a taste but trust me, a years worth of aging brings it into perfection.

    Is there anything more magical than smoking a pipe outside, your hat pulled down low, while watching the slowly falling snowflakes?

    Ben, I love a smoke outside at sunrise. This pic was this morning. The snow is gone now as the temp got up to 53f today.

    The pass-a-round box is off to kertap!

    A bit of a warning about the Condor I put in there. It WILL ghost your pipe so best to smoke it in a cob to see if you like it. Even with a cob it takes a few smokes until the ghost goes away. I also included some Five Brothers and it is the strongest tobacco I have ever smoked when it comes to vitamin N. So best to be sitting down if you try it. Oh, also, it is supposed to be that dry.

    Also, off the top of my head there's some Hal O'the Wynd, Full Virginia Flake, Philosopher, Luxury Navy Flake, DeLuxe Navy Rolls, Walnut... and that's all I can remember. I also put in a small Dr. Grabow pipe. If anyone wants it, snag it.

    Got the new Peterson 221 in the mail today, so breaking it in with some Carter Hall.

    Sometime I wonder why I don't just smoke Carter Hall and nothing else. Such an easy smoke.

    Am I the only one who just kinda walks around their house and do stuff with a pipe in their mouth? It just feels so natural. I think I have an oral fixation...
