I've taken to sitting in the back porch, in a rocker, smoking a pipe, and watching the girls. I have a tobacconist nearby that sells "local" blends, as well cigars, and they've recently started a bar... I've enjoyed a few of their concoctions while watching the sun set and the chooks peck and scratch. My favorite pipe is a briar, bent Apple shaped with a coarse finish. Although I do have a straight, smooth with a waxed finish which I also enjoy. Any thoughts?
