It's been forever since I've smoked a pipe, but I used to get an aromatic blend from Schwabb's, a local shop. Black and Blue. Super mellow, and would smoke it in a cheap corncob. I might have to go dig it out and give it a smoke now that you've got me thinking about it...

Smoking an aromatic blend, EbonKnight, in a Missouri Meerschaum 'Country Gentleman' corncob pipe. I've owned several pipes, including a pricey one from Tim West, but I always gravitate back to corncobs. They don't need any seasoning/breaking in, and they're so cheap I never worry about abusing them. I prefer to sip Ale-8-1 when I smoke to cut back on tongue bite. It's a local ginger ale brewed in Winchester, KY. If you're ever in the area try and pick some up. It's good!

Gosh all fish-hooks - this takes me back. The last time I smoked a pipe, Richard Nixon was President, you could buy a brand new Chevy Monte Carlo for $3,415, gas was $0.36 a gallon, first class postage was $0.08 (we actually wrote letters then), a dozen eggs was $0.53 and bread was $0.35 a loaf. A local call on a pay-phone (we also talked to each other on the phone) was $0.10. My two major purchases for the year included a Trumark FS-1, for $1.95 and a Puma Hunter's Pal knife for about $35.00. My rent was $50 a month.

Chocolate, prune, and fruit - Sounds like the concoction that Granny Raja put together to exonerate the bowels.
