Brother-In-Law Event



We are going to a holiday event at my brother-in-law's home.  It will be nice that it is over with before the rest of the holiday.  It seems to always be associated with too much drama.  It is definitely not a "special event pipe smoking" session. 

Saturday was successful in regards to my efforts.  It was more of a struggle than most other days (as I had expected, since I had not been very successful on Saturdays to begin with).  In thinking through the day, I think that I understand more why it was challenging.  I tend to have a lot of idle time on Saturday and I had typically filled much if not all of this idle time by smoking my pipe. It was regularly one of my highest consumption days each week.  Sometimes my idleness would be just relaxing around the house, sometimes it would be waiting for one or more family members to arrive/get ready to go/get going/ or prepare to do something or other that would give me the "wait time".  In most every circumstance, my trusty companion, my briar pipe and pipe tobacco would come out to help me wile away the time.  I must admit I do miss that.  And, I know that until January 3rd, I will have that sort of idle time, frequently.  So, I must keep thinking of my strategy for these times. 

PipeTobacco

Today's (Sunday's) Goal = 0
Yesterday's (Saturday's) Goal = 0  bowls

Actual consumption (Saturday) = 0 bowls

An early post, did the cheap bastard get the home computer fixed or just get to the U early? And what about a new rig for the wife, have you dickered for some extra nookie yet?

I don't have any holiday events to attend and I'm most thankful for that.

I WONDER WHERE SHE IS.

I also wonder when Teri is going to do another fucking post. There's always plenty of shit for me to ponder on.

Just did, Billy...been out of commission for a while :-)
It's an extra long one, though...
Pipe...you're doing great. I'm not doing as well, was a bit undone by events of the past week, but hope to get back on the wagon ASAP.

DORA POSTED THIS on her blog. Of all the tools I've seen and used over the years I can't for the life of me figure out what it is. It appears to set the angle on a suction cup on the end of it but I have no idea what it would be used for.

I spend Christmas with my in-law pretty much I find them good people. One niece her and I seem to bump heads politically...pro military....but other then that we have quite a bit in common.

Idleness is something I seem to run into but don't bother asking me why...I would just shrug my shoulders.

As Bill said I do have tool posted over my blog.

Merry Christmas and coffee is on.
