Marevas (2/5)

  1. The box of 50s I have been going through are okay, but most are under-filled. I can smoosh them down as they warm and they improve slightly draw wise, but then 1/3rd of the cigar is missing. Pretty bland, hot, and bitter quickly. I have to remind myself to use a punch as a cutter opens it up way too much. I purchased mine duty-free for 200 a box several years ago, I guess I cannot complain too much.
  2. I will be flying out of Dubai if that makes a difference. I have purchased from the Duty Free there before but not recently since changes the have occurred.
  3. Just checking in to see if anyone has had any recent issues buying from duty free while flying into the States? I am flying into Boston and I was hoping to pick-up a few boxes in transit. I am would rather not have to part with them if declared @ customs. Thanks in advance 😀
  4. Soldiers have the M65 Field Jacket liners affectionately called smoking jackets as they are de rigor on deployments. Pretty comfy at home too. ? And then some enterprising soldiers thought it would be a good idea to take it a bit further with poncho liners aka "The Woobie"
  5. Purple Martins. Get some gourds or some man-made houses. You need to line them with mud to attract them faster and they like to nest together which is why you see large apt looking bird houses. Bat Boxes work well too.
  6. One show I always wanted to see was Jethro Tull. A buddy of mine got to see his Thick as a Brick tour in '79 and said it was one of the best shows he had seen. Ian Anderson is quite the showman.
  7. I missed the Stone's play Hampton Coliseum in 1983. Everyone skipped class to go buy tickets. I was broke I did manage to tape it as it was simalcast over our local FM Rock station. My father had a real nice Harmon Kardon system and I managed to record an awesome show. I have seen lots of great shows. Robert Plant several times in the late 80's. Smithereens, Psychedelic Furs (2x), Midnight Oil, Bobby Blue Bland, Chris Issac (2x), Yellowman, Third World (2x), Rita Marley, Ziggy Marley, The Romantics, Doobie Brothers, Van Halen (2x), Don Henley, Heart, Aerosmith (2x), so many others I cannot remember. ?

  9. I can attest to this. I went from smoking 2-3 weekly to 7+. Since we were mandated to stay inside for 22 hours a day for an entire month distractions were needed. Things that normally filled time became mundane and tedious. One had to get creative to not go stir-crazy. Coffee and cigars were my go to, but that was only an hour or so out of very, very long days. ? I began smoking my pipes more as I was burning down my CCs. When FOB informed me that no deliveries were available to my area I made a Hail Mary order for some pipe tobacco which made it in country, but due to lock-down initiatives/ measures it took nearly 2 months to pick up. ?
  10. And tabs, tabs, a few more tabs, can have to dig it all to find the hidden goods. I never really found much of anything but clad coin. It is still fun
